Today's Yard Sale Find
This morning Clint went on "our" daily walk alone. I needed more time to wake up. I left by myself on "our" walk around 8 AM. Leaving with the usual items in my pocket, a dollar and my cell phone. The dollar is for the bagel that I get sometimes on our morning walk. About three streets over, I encounted a yard sale and just had to stop by and see if there was a treasure I couldn't do without. Sure enough, I found two treasures I just had to have. I gave Clint a call, he said he would be right there with some extra money and he was there in a matter of minutes.
My cell phone rings in the middle of the transaction, it was the mulitple listing service, we had a house showing two hours later. (Our house is for sale.) As luck would have it, we had a handyman scheduled to do some work at our house at the same time as the showing. At this point I gave up on walking, Clint drove me to the bagel shop and we came on home to get the house ready for the showing.
Yes, I did find two treasures I just had to have. :-) I found this stunning 13 inch decorative plate with a bird motif. Also, a leather bound journal, it was in like-new condition. (Journal not pictured)
The plate and journal were $2 each. Perfect prices.
The plate looked perfect on our kitchen counter, I like the large size. I am working on buying larger pieces, small items tend to make the rooms look cluttered.
It is yard sale weather here and I've learned to leave for my walk with more money.
