I love Garage Sales!
Well, our trip to the world's longest yard sale is getting closer. It is the first weekend in August. I am getting anxious to go hunting and digging to see what I can find. The one thing about yard sales, you just never know what treasure might be awaiting you in the most unexpected places. Over the years, I have found some great collectibles at yard sales. In fact, some of my favorite things have come from yard sales. One example is the picture above. I bought it at a yard sale for 25 cents! It has in inscription printed below the picture that says "Grandfather's Pet, William H Snape, 1885-1892." I am sure it is just a print, but I love it anyway. It hangs in my office/sewing room. It just gives me a cozy feeling when I look at it. Hopefully, I will bring home some real treasures, either for the shop (or for myself) from our trip this year.
