It has been said before that I'm "easily amused" and "a cheap date" - often taken as 'less-than-flattering' statements, but I guess it's true.
Hit a 'Final Day' Church Rummage sale on Saturday -
"FILL A BOX FOR THREE BUCKS"!
(Just buy a 'print paper box' and fill it with whatever you can!)
and OH what FUN was had...
|Yes, I DO know how to pack a box!!|
As always, LOTS of 'stuff with potential' (ie: craft supplies)
|'New' foldout storage carry-along (in Pink!), metal zippers, scrap ornaments for wreaths, jello mold for mushrooms, 'New' package of decorative papers...|
LOTS of 'Tools of the Trade':
|Why are there some things that I just.can't.leave behind?? I have more mini C-clamps, Hot Glue Guns, Dymo Label Makers, and heavy old clunky staplers than I could possibly 'need' in a lifetime. Yet, I couldn't walk away from them?!!|
A FEW THINGS THAT WERE ALL ABOUT ME!
|This chalkware cathead and mini lantern perfume bottle are headed directly to MY PERSONAL 'museum'!|
A BIT FOR FRIENDS:
|Isn't this NIB Irwingware 4pc BARWARE set amazing?!! (complete with instruction book!)|
...and The NECESSARY 'WHAT THE???'
|This mini kit came WELL TAPED, so thought we were getting a 'Grommet set'. Imagine my surprise when we inspected it closer at home. Solid metal 'points' with 'screws'!?? I'm thinking some kind of shoe or cleat replacement spikes (golf? baseball?). Are these still legal (to sell?). Any market??|
|Larger than marbles, metal, heavy and a Whole baggie full...|
WHAT ARE THEY FOR??
WHAT CAN WE DO WITH THEM????
All in all, I think we did okay.
The fun-of-the-hunt and the sorting after kept me HAPPY for quite a while !!
