You know those estate sales you attend where you really wish that you knew the person or could talk to them? Or perhaps you felt a connection to the person as you walk around their home picking up craft supplies and vintage pyrex bowls. Friday I had none of that.
Friday took me to a different kind of sale on a hill overlooking Santa Rosa. The people that were waiting in line with me were faces that I had never seen before. When we were let in the house they only allowed 12 people. The other surprise was the Security Guard that was walking from room to room keeping an eye on people. Why all the fuss? The house was filled with swords, knifes, gun supplies, statues of weapons and any other gun/weapon related thing that you could imagine. Not only that but there were mirrors above the bed, adult themed board games, books on sex art and interesting videos on a similar subject. I did buy some VHS tapes to ReSell that consisted of old war movies but other than that I didn't buy much.
I left the sale quite quickly and headed over to a fun estate sale in Sebastopol that was more my style. I found the mugs above. I'm thinking I prefer vintage kitchen wares instead of weapons and fabric rather than whips and handcuffs. LOL.
The following day Keiran and I went thrifting together and found a desk for Cerys.
I'm probably the only one on the planet that hasn't seen this movie. Still I bought the watch thinking that it might be collectible. Should I see the movie?
I didn't have a lot of energy this weekend and this was reflected in my thrifting. With a very full office of inventory, no energy and the children home for the next two weeks I bought very little. When I'm tired, it's nice to naturally slow down. That's the beauty of this job.
I wanted to say thank you for the votes last week. I'm excited to share that I have over 100 votes so far. I really appreciated the help in getting Thrifting on the list.
Thanks for the feedback on Dream Share. I will start this next month. I'll try to do it around the 8th of every month.
I also wanted to say thank you for the compliments on my banner. xoxo Selena
