I Love Fridays off...
OFF FRIDAY from work meant one thing, I could hit the estate sales on the first day...oooh! And my good luck charm (my mini me) got to go with me since she too had the day off. The first estate sale started at 10am, so silly me, thought getting there at 8am would get me into the top ten to enter first. Boy was I WRONG! I got there only to find that there were people who camped out since 9am the day before!!!! What were they selling in there, GOLD?! Well I got on the list - number 79, so I headed back home to do some laundry (lucky for me the sale was in my neighborhood). We went back at 11:30 and got in by 11:45...here is what we found...
When I carried the stool out the front door, surprisingly, there was still a line to get in! Reminded me of when I used to wait in line to get into a dance club, now I'm willing to wait in line to go thrifting- how dose that happen?! And how can I get onto a VIP list for the next sale? hmmm.
Don't worry mom- I washed the fabric items as soon we got home...
So was this estate sale worth it? YES 'cuz I got to go home and do laundry instead of waiting in line.
SATURDAY- I entered the land of mini...
Saturday was an especially fun day because I got to share my thrifting fun with my friend of 20years!
*Unfortunately her first estate experience consisted of doggy smelling house and lots of dusty stuff to dig through.
*It also consisted of getting me home quick enough for a dose of Claritin (I'm unfortunately allergic to dogs). *It was a TRY to get in quick and get out quick kind of experience.
*Getting out was a bit rough- I think we waited in line for 15min to pay (long time to wait when your at the brink of wheezing). Of course, these things never happen when I'm alone. Note to self: pre-medicate with Claritin.
*We got to chit chat over breakfast.
*I left with a few finds that just needed a good soak in some sudsy water. And she managed to leave with a few kids books, wooden puzzles, and a glass bottle collection.
*And the best part, she still wants to be my friend despite my obsession with thrifting...at least I think so- mwhahaha (at this point in life she really has no choice).
These were some of the cuties I left with...
And my last mini were these two squirrels- It's a vintage floral Pick- why don't they make them this cute anymore?
Now comes the hard part...deciding what's gonna end up in my shop.
All in all a fun thrifting weekend, got to spend time with my daughter and bestie - what more could a thrifty gal want?!
