Saturday's saling was a definite improvement over last weekends 'Kinky Witch' episode! It was an overcast, brisk 58° when I started out (but it did get up to 64° by noon)! MMMMM... Fall IS in the air!I hit an Estate sale and a few individual sales first, then tackled the 'Rt. 34B Sale'. The Estate sale was by far the most enjoyable, even though I didn't buy a thing!! While perusing a couple of old recipe boxes, I heard the woman running the sale talking in the next room... that voice... sounds familiar... YES! As I entered the next room to ask the price of the recipe boxes I encountered an old friend that I hadn't seen in a couple of years. She had finally sold her mother's house, would be closing on Tuesday, and was heading out West to Seattle on Thursday!! We chatted for probably a half an hour, then I wished her the best and headed on. Empty handed. ( when she saw me 'fondling' the recipe boxes, she quickly snatched them away and said they weren't for sale ... ) .
Nothing of major excitement at the next couple of sales... onto the 'Rt Sale'!The first stop on 'The Rt.' was a good omen for the rest of the day... Lots of Stuff. Cheap. FUN people. What more can you ask for?? I got these four little glasses for $1 (even an 'Archie'!) and a great retro-moderne chrome birdcage stand (It's similiar to this, but chrome/black with more angles and details... I couldn't figure out a good way to photograph it, so use your imagination!!) for another $1.!!
...MUGS seemed to be 'my thing' for the day... A.C.C. (where we had our wedding reception!), Met Museum: Frank Lloyd Wright, Starbucks, Syracuse China Christmas...
...DANSK placemats NWT and a coupls of Bossons reference books (.25¢ ea.)! I'm not a big collector of Bossons, but curious of their history. I do have a hallway (adjacent to the 'Fish Hall'), that is in a nautical-of-sorts theme. Included on the walls are some 'Bosson-wannabes', and maybe 1 or 2 of the 'real' thing. I just adore these 'scruffy' Sea Men!
