sales sales everywhere sales

Not the ones at Macy's. Have you noticed that they have "this is the lowest price of the season" sales every week? 

I am talking about the kind of sale where you wake up early to rummage around old sheds (and as you can tell from the photo, the light is still fuzzy along with my brain)


Where you know that treasures lurk inside old barns.


that among the stacked furniture there is a jewel.


and you can't wait to raise your hand or nod your head 


because there is nothing more exciting than being the winning bidder. Yep!!  Auctions and estate sales. My favorite kind.

So let the bidding begin because I've got my sunscreen on, my cart to lug my treasures, and I'm really good at giving you the evil eye when you are bidding against me.

  3. The sign is typical-"No Outlet." I thought no, I'd rather have a flea market or yard sale than an outlet mall anyday of the week:)

  10. I love auctions and estate sales! I particularly like auctions where they'll toss all kinds of stuff in a box and auction it off all at once. Those usually go cheaply and it's like a surprise package of junk! Around here, however, it can really competitive, with dealers having more to spend than me and bidding on everything. Still, if I have my eye on something, I wait and swoop in with a bid just before the sale is finalized. It usually throws other bidders off guard and I get the goodie LOL! Have fun! Hugs, Leena
