When I was younger, we had garage sales to get rid of unwanted items that we had grown out of. I always found the crowd that would come by to rummage and haggle our discarded items to be such an intriguing group of people. Turns out I am one of these people. While I was living in Tennessee I attended my first garage sale. The first pair of dreamy soft leather boots I discovered and walked away with for $2, I was hooked. Not being a morning person I started setting my alarm for Friday and Saturdays bright and early. I got a thrill looking for signs and following them into new areas of the rolling Knoxville hills- on a mission to find unwanted discarded items that I could rescue and make mine. That was in 2007 and I still occasionally set my alarm to go treasure hunting.
Here are some pictures I took of my Saturday morning exploration in Seattle.
I got many other little nik-naks that I have already stuck onto little shelves. Remember how I said that I know better than to bring big pieces of furniture home that need a little TLC? Ya… I brought one of those home and I just adore it and look forward to sprucing it up. A sweet man in his 70’s or so loaded into my car, now I just have to sweet talk my guy into carrying it up to the third floor of the house. Pictures to follow!
I don’t know if this will find anyones attention, but if it does have a lovely Tuesday.
