This blog post is a mumbo jumbo of a bit of this and that, but I'm backtracking, so I can show you photos from sale on the weekend. It's an annual event at the Lancaster Event Center called The Mother of all garage sales. It's only one day 8-4. We were certainly planning on being there when the doors open, and since Lincoln is 60 miles from me ... I was hitting the road before the sun came up. I'm not normally a early morning girl..but for a sale... yes.. (and on top of that.. the morning was beautiful)
It seems that a few other people had the same idea we did. lol
I didn't take alot of photos inside ( you know.... because I was on the hunt) lol , but Jan and I laid out our goodies in the back of my car while we were transferring hers to her car. Neither of us bought anything big...but we found some little treasures for really great prices.
Swanky Swigs to add to my little collection. They make me happy.
I was looking at this printers tray with a random bunch of little do dads in it, and the lady said... "you can have the tray and everything in it for 50 if you take it all". I said... "oh yes I will" I really didn't need any of the little things in it, but the tray to alter for 50 is a YES for me!
I have been looking for a large one of these. I got this one for $10 full of really pretty lemons. It's a foot and a half tall, and so pretty.
Oh.. and my "eagle eye sister" spotted these red and white polka dot pots for me. They are SO perfect for my kitchen. Like brand new... both for $5. woo hoo. Love me a deal!
Oh.. and I did find some things to share also, so I'll be adding those to my etsy soon.
It was a fun day ,and absolutely gorgeous out. Enjoyed my ride home later that afternoon. Choice of music...
to get me home Jason Boots. ( Loud, and with the windows down of course) ha
Everyday when we get up.. we can plan all we want, but we never really know how the day is going to play out. Heres proof. lol I had a list of things I was going to do today, but Jarad texted me last night, and asked me of I wanted to target shoot with him today. Now this puts me in a predicament because I DO NOT like guns...but I DO love spending time with my boys. SO......
I hesitated at first but then he said... "mom remember what you said... life is short, you want to try new things and experience all you can". He's right, I do say that... so ... now I can say I did it. Most of all I got to spend time with Jarad :)
