One thing that never changes, regardless of the season, is our desire to go saling and, with Saturday upon us, we researched the sales and we were making our list and checking it twice...oh wait...that sounds too much like Christmas. Let's just say, we found some potential sales and off we went!
Our first stop was at a church not too far away from us. They were having a flea market. We have been to their thrift shop and, since that was open too, it was a double bonus stop. We found three records from the 1980's at the flea market and old Christmas children's boot in the thrift shop. We will use the boot as a Christmas decoration, perhaps with a peering Santa emerging from the top.
Our second stop (after a hearty breakfast) was at another church nearby. It was a quick stop. There was nothing of interest.
After this sale, we drove 30 minutes away to where two sales were located in neighboring towns. The first sale did not show a great deal of potential but we stopped by anyway since we were in the area. It was a quick stop and we left empty handed.
Here are some of the things we brought home with us:
A Cugat record
Some science fiction paperbacks from the 1950's plus a Peanuts book from 1968
Some vintage glassware plus a Bugs Bunny glass from 1973
An old circus banner with a creepy clown
A record rack for 45 rpm records
A pair of Rubbermaid cabinet organizers from the late 1950's / early 1960's that still have their tags attached.
Some Christmas items
Some Burger King giveaways from 1980, a vintage Easter card, an old New York City street map, some cocktail stirrers and other things
It was a great day of adventuring on Saturday and we spent Sunday running errands, changing the holiday decorations and doing housework. We did find time to take a nap together in the afternoon and to make lasagna together for dinner. It may be getting colder outside but there is always plenty to do and always something to enjoy about every season and each moment is always made more enjoyable spent with the one you love.
