Friday Finds

Do people like wicker anymore? I saw this at a yard sale today and it is super clean. There was no price on it and I didn't ask. More curious than anything, I guess. I did find something I wanted and was making that purchase when the seller said "Now, let's talk about the wicker." I jokingly said "Keep the change and I'll take it." He said "Ok."

What? he he he I like my luck this week. Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket.Remember the yard sale I shopped early Wednesday? You know the one. I went back today to get all the other bargains I could get. I drove up at 7:50 am. A full 10 minutes before Judy said she would be selling anything. Lo and behold. What to my wondering eyes did I see? Folks loading up their cars with all the good, cheap stuff that I wanted. Before 8, mind you. Ugh. Judy got $6.25 out of me and I headed on to greener pastures.
The For Sale sign might be my favorite catch of the day.

I hope you enjoy some good shopping this weekend. Saturday, David and I will be in Athens, setting up for the Grand Opening. Has anyone told you that the doors at Winnie and Tulula's open Saturday, June 13 at 11:00 am? It's a fact.

Happy Weekend!
