...P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N.!

 SUNNY... BLUE SKIES... BRISK TEMPERATURES... 3 OF YOUR BEST BUDS... and SALES EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK!!!
(Newer Ouija Board - perfect for decorating this time of the year ;-) $1 )

If that's not a sure sign that all of the stars and planets MUST have been aligned, then I don't know what is!!
 Saturday our 'College Crew' met up in a small town on the Southern shores of Lake Ontario that was having their annual town-wide 'Garage Sale / Antique Show'.  
    8:30 am   First stop on my way into town was at a rather Grand home on the Lake, front steps flanked with MacKenzie-Childs urns (get the picture??) ... I ended up buying a couple of armloads of clothing from the Two hysterical women of the house (happily pounding mimosas to make 'Garage Sale Day' more bareable!!) - NWT Lauren, Coldwater, Talbots, boutique pieces, etc. ... NICE!  New Fall wardrobe for just a tad over $10 !
   9:30 am  The entire crew joined forces and took off on foot to walk the triangular circuit of town!  Stopping quite regularly for homemade Pie (YUM - Grape Pie!), or to support the French class at their CREPE Stand ~ Yes! Yummo Nutella & Cherry Crepes @ Garage sales - they were really good!  And Chili. And Chicken Barbeque. And a beer. or Two.  OH, and there was 'STUFF' too ;-)
I came home with the usual 'stuff' like vintage Christmas ornaments, and useable boring household type-stuff, but I also found 'GOOD STUFF'...
VERA 2012 #16 .50¢
 Stuff like VERA!
Beautiful VERA scarves 8-)
VERA 2012 #17 .50¢
 amazingly all in PERFECT Autumn patterns...
VERA 2012 #18 $1.00
 and colors!
 
NOT to be outdone by the VERA, the SWEATER CLIPS didn't let me down!!
Sweater Clip 2012 #13 Boxed ($5), & #14 (.50¢)

A double-chained, rhinestone beauty  - 'In original box' found it's way home with me, and now resides on the NEW display board!!  I feel kinda bad for the other small child's clip... it looks rather pathetic next to it - doesn't it??  It shall have a Good home too, though on one of my bird-cage displays! 
 
LOTS of FUN.
LOTS of LAUGHS.
Wish days like this could be frozen in time.

I would've given anything to be there with you and your pals! So glad you found great stuff but even if you hadn't the day would've been perfect!
