Vintage Yard Sale

Here is a taste of what's going on at mom's place this weekend!
So much stuff! My mom says she's a bit of a hoarder, it's funny though.... she doesn't like to throw things out or get rid of things, but she has no problem selling things.  Although the next day she will be at good will with all that money looking for new (old) things to bring home and wash up.  She's like an orphanage for old, rusty, broken things.  They come home, she gives them love and care until they are ready to venture out again to their new homes.

  7. Sorry I didn' put details as to where since it's not likely that any of you live even remotely close LOL. But if you want to jump on a plane for a red eye flight it will be open tomorrow too! We're in Wisconsin.

    I took the pictures quickly last night as it was getting dark, mom was trying to finish up saying she wasn't nearly as far as she had hoped (yes she has even more stuff!). I had to leave them this morning for work, there were already a few amish shoppers about (there are a lot of amish by us). So I'm sure it will be a nut house when I get home. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Wish I lived closer and could stop by. I have strep right now but I would be popping pills like crazy just so I could go. I might even take a shower before hand! :)

  25. Ok, don't hate me, I was able to make the sale and loved, loved, loved it! Wish I had more time to shop but did make a mad dash and grabbed up some old goodies. I think my favorite is the army style handbag with the red cross on it but love the Ben Franklin dime store tote too. Beautiful weather for a great sale...cool old schoolhouse as background. Great job!
