Our little town has a community yard sale
every year in September.
It's held at the community center and
100-150 families have a booth at it.
I didn't write about this back when it happened.
It was good, I spent all $28 I had in my wallet
and filled my shopping cart.
But the real show is the following 2 weekends
when everything that didn't sell
gets donated and shows up at the local Goodwill.
I got this...
Here's a better look at it:
That's right, I scored this huge old school chalk board!
It's so big I had to take it outside to photo it.
And the best part?
Yes, that's right...
And that's not all I found...
A rare set of Federal bluebird glasses!
A cobalt blue thumbprint divided dish!
A Westmoreland milkglass compote!
Set of 4 antique ironstone salts!
Set of 6 atomic stars glassware!
A silverplate soap dish!
A pair of French porcelain casserole dishes from Pillivuyt!
A Daisy and Button pattern clover shaped candy dish!
One of several pairs of old chicken salt & pepper shakers!
French Saxon china in the Leaf pattern!
A creepy doll head...
yeah, I don't know why either...
The cutest vintage bath shelf in seafoam!
Lots of old silverplate trays, bowls and baskets!
I'm not sure how I missed so much great stuff at the sale.
I was there early and a lot of people were
still unpacking when I left.
As I was walking through the sale, one woman who just
pulled into her space at 8 am, looked
around at the crowd and said
"I thought this sale started at 8 am."
And some guy in the space next to her, who was kicked
back in a chair drinking coffee replied
"Yes, it starts at 8, but some of us have been
here unpacking since 5 am."
Yep, and that's why I go to this sale so early
and know I can pick up all the leftovers at the
Goodwill for the next couple of weeks!
Welcome to this weeks
Cottage Style Party!
Then, suddenly, it's October.
Yep, there's no denying it now, summer is
long over and fall is settling in.
As a gardener, I have my spring blinders on.
It's time to plant bulbs for spring blooms.
But there's a lot of cold, dreary weather
between fall and spring.
Lucky for us, fall is just as colorful
as spring and summer!
So let's see some fall color!
How beautiful is this table centerpiece!
I love this colorful display of fruit, berries and leaves.
Stop in to Just a Little Southern Hospitality
