Warmer weather is always good for finding treasures...
This Saturday is the first of a series of mile long block sales that are coming up.

I always find things to buy.... albeit my standards for buying things are not as high as others *wink*
I am thinking about making a liner for my larger shopping cart. Nothing worse then not having room in your cart for your treasures!
Sometimes I see the original selling price on something and am shocked. This was the case with this brass/glass sand timer. I bought it for .50¢ and the original price was $
It seems all I ever gravitate towards lately is things for my pirate backyard....

I finally bought some jewelry... its been a long while since I've done that. I befriended a 75 year old gal named Berta out at the swap meet about two years ago. I stop and talk to her every weekend, whether I buy something or not. She bags up all of the junk she doesn't want and sells me the bags for super cheap. I think all of this below cost me all of $7 bucks. I also buy some of her vintage necklaces too.... she is a real doll~
I'm excited about the mile long sales to begin! Bring it on!
big hugs,


  1. Looks and sounds like you really scored. Especially nice deal on the timer and the jewelry.
    Enjoy your evening.

  2. What some finds! I can't imagine a mile long sale! In the summer, we have village sales, so might have to hit one of them.

  3. I would love to go on a mile long yard sale extravaganza! I am so jealous, and it looks like you got some great finds!
