Tomorrow is my birthday. It's also my hubby's, he's turning the big 5 0. So were gonna celebrate his and forget about mine, thankyouverymuch. I was at Salvation Army the other day and the cashier asked me if I qualified for the senior discount. Um, no (I'm turning 47). She said "well if your close I can still give you the senior discount" Again, no. I mean I'm not 30 anymore but come on, I don't look 55! Just hurry up and ring my crap up full price so I can go home and cry!
I decided to combat my old lady blues with some shopping. 2 estate sales, garage sale and a couple thrifts. My first stop was a garage sale. Out of 30 Craigslist sales, 2 looked good. This one promised lots of "antiquities". I got there right at 8am. There were already 15 people crammed in the garage snapping up the good stuff left and right. I kept picking things up and the lady running the sale would say "that's someone's pile". Damn! Why don't I have a pile? Anyway I managed to find three things
Estate sales were kind of a vintage bust, but great for ebay resale items. I did find a few older items
The other day I went to a hugely overpriced estate sale. Reminded me why I usually avoid estate sales. #ripoff.
Found two things that weren't shockingly expensive
A new vintage look paper doll book which will be great for 4th of July decorating, and the cutest pink toy mixer ever made.
Ok, now for my most exciting news, I rented a booth! It's at the antique mall that my mom and I used to have a booth at. Super clean and lots of foot traffic. I was really missing having one so I decided to take the plunge. Let the shopping commence! (Like I need an excuse). I move in on Sunday so I will be a busy girl getting things ready. Pics to come! Til then, have a great weekend!
