Good Afternoon Everyone!!
Well, let me start off with an update on my Yard Sale I had last Saturday. We have one every Memorial Day weekend and usually do really well.
This year…. not so much! :(
No one was out YS’ing in our town. I talked to one man who had been to other towns and he said it was packed. Then when he came to Herrin, there was no one.
Any way, I did at least make me some spending money for the Gypsy Caravan in St. Louis on Monday. I made a little less than $150.00, so I guess I cant complain. I was just hoping for more.
Thanks to everyone who sent a little prayer out about my ear. I did actually wake up on Monday morning feeling a lot better. Oh, how I love the power of prayer!!
And nope it didn't rain while we were there. Though I can admit as the sweat was soaking my clothes and the sun was beating down on the top of my head, I would have Welcomed a rain storm!! :)
My daughter and I got quite a sun burn. She actually got it a lot worse than I did. Bad Mom… I forgot the sun screen!!
I didn't really buy that much at the Gypsy Caravan. But I was happy with the few items I did find.
Here are my Goodies!
An old red ware crock…. $5.00
I topped it with mustard homespun.
I also got 2 of these white crocks, which I also topped.
Price $5 each.
I forgot to take a photo of the 2nd one, but they look exactly alike.
I got this old primitive small bench.
And this sifter screen.
Don’t you just love the old worn paint!!?? :)
I got this old bonnet.
A lot of pillow ticking fabric.
An old advertising box.
Graphics on all four sides.
Then after leaving the caravan we stopped by Old Time Pottery.
One of my Favorite Stores in the whole world!! :)
There I found these goodies.
A wonderful large red lantern.
An adorable bird house.
I believe it was $11.00.
And a few of these little prim lights.
It comes as seen wit the little berry wreath in the tray.
The stacked boxes are also new.
They are manufactured but I still think they are wonderful.
I purchased these in Ana, IL. at the Potatoe Barn.
Price $14.99 for the set.
I did buy a few more things both at the Caravan and at OTP but I haven't gotten around to taking photos of them.
I will show them off next time.
Hubby just came in from work, so I’m heading off to see how his day went.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!!
Until Next Time….
