Look at all the lace I found at a yard sale last Saturday.
This gray piece is my favorite. Such a pretty color.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but I love it.
This whole pile of lace and...
These two cookbooks were only 50 cents total!
Can you believe that. I was shocked when the lady told me.
The yard sale was at the food bank and the proceeds went there, so I gave her $5 instead.
I'd feel like a thief only giving her 50 cents!
I also got this little plate for $1 at another yard sale.
It's 5 inches across and has the hanger on back.
I think I'll hang it in my office.
I also got a set of hot rollers for $8. It was a brand-new set still in the box. I don't roll my hair very often anymore since I don't work outside my home, but I do like to roll it now and then. These were all Jumbo or Super-Jumbo size rollers, which I had been looking for. I'm so glad I didn't buy the ones I saw for $30 at Walmart.
There are two second-hand shops in town. This one has several rooms just filled with things. I bought an old saucepan when we first moved in and hadn't received all our things yet. I didn't get to look around long, but I plan to go back and look at my leisure soon. I just know there are some treasures there waiting for me.
This is the second one.
Don't you love that name?
BIG FAT FUN!
That name makes me happy.
I'm not sure that it's even open anymore.
It wasn't open this day, but I haven't been back down that little street since.
This flyer was posted on the Community Bulletin Board at the local grocery store. It looks right up my alley. I'm looking forward to attending with a hippy skirt and sandals on. :)
Speaking of the local grocery store...
Here it is.
The side of the building with some murals showing the town in old times.
We've been there once and did a little shopping. Although it's quite expensive to shop there, it's nice to have a little grocery store in town for little things we may need that we don't want to make a 45-minute trip into the big town for. I'll shop here occasionally just to support them and keep them in business.
There's a little coffee shop within the store that also sells some hippy-dippy stuff like jewelry and candles and such. I didn't take the time to look through it when we were there, but I will next time even though the lady that ran that shopping was a raging bitch when we were there. That's right...a raging bitch! At least I thought so.
As we were checking out, Ken asked the cashier if she happened to have a bottle opener. He had bought one bottle of Vanilla Creme Soda that he wanted to drink as soon as we got in the car. She said no, and then turned around and shouted to the lady at the coffee shop asking her if she had one. Her response was a very testy one. "No, this is not a BAR! I don't keep openers so people can drink their beer!"
How freakin' RUDE! Everyone was shocked at her response and just stared at her in silence. I suppose I'll give her another chance before I write her off totally. Who needs someone like that in their life? Not me! But maybe she was just having a bad day or there's more going on there than meets the eye. Maybe her and the cashier hate each other or something. Whatever.
As we walked out, Ken said, "By the way, this is not a beer. It's just a Creme Soda." She immediately started back-pedaling saying something about how her little space would make a nice bar, but they wouldn't give her a license to sell liquor there, followed by a little nervous laughter. Again, whatever bitch. A nice man followed us out of the store and pulled a can opener out of his pocket offering it for Ken to use. Now that's more like it. Jeez.
Today is my first day back to work...so here I sit making this entry instead. Ha-ha. Yes, real life and the real world await. Sigh. I'd better get to it.
