Yard Sale Geek


Yep, I'm a geek. Last Friday I was running little one to school and instead of digging through the pile of flip flops by the door I just grabbed a similar looking pair- why bother I wasn't getting out of the car anyway!

Until I saw the yard sale sign. It was in a wonderful neighborhood. Small, old homes, neatly kept.... I couldn't resist. I pulled up to see a lady hauling off a truck full of stuff. Would there be anything left?

Yes! There were some treasures that were just for me! It was an estate sale of a woman that loved to sew and craft. I found two boxes full of wonderful fabric scraps as well as large pieces. Some of them are vintage gems.

I passed on the big box of polyester.




A few partly finished projects that I can't wait to work on.



Some pretty baubles for 25 cents a pair.


My heart did a happy dance all the way to the car even with my chipped nail polished toes and mismatched shoes.

Pin It!

Maybe the mismatched flip flops are what brought on the lucky sale. I'm glad you found it. (o:
