Friday Was Better




Ran out this am to find what sales were to be found. Not much! In fact nada, nothing, zippo or what ever you want to call it. It was bad for sailing.

But, yesterday was the day, here is the funny find and story of the weekend. Went to this sale in town. An older couple with all kinds of nice books on antiques, collecting, prices etc. They were selling all these little dust collectors, you know glass, figures, and what nots. All my dealer friend were also there. Every one is looking at the books and the prices on the what nots, and they where not priced cheap let me tell you. And then there are these two antique chairs, and every one is whispering "She wants a $100 a piece for sure" but, no one asks. Except me. " Excuse me, How much for the chairs?" and the lady says $15. So I get out my $30 to pay her., and she says " No honey that is to much money. They re $15 for the pair"

Well you could have blown me over with a hiccup, and all the other dealers were cursing under the breath. Oh, well good finds to be found.
