Life is FuLL of peeks and valleys—but sO mANy in oNe dAy-??
The alarm was set for 3:10—I laid awake from 2am on.
I should have been out the door by 4am—it was 4:15.
Oh well~I still made the early entrance line~barely!
Which means I could park in the vendor area!
Which means it’s WaY easier to make trips back to the car when my finds get heavy!
AnD–shed clothing as the sun finally begins to warm everything up!
So, LooK what I found!
First, I found the antlers. I’ve been interested in getting some of these for a while now, but haven’t pulled the trigger. These were in pristine condition, well sized, and bleached and mounted–for a negotiated price of $25.
Second, I found this cool clock! (about 4″ in diameter) I have and love, 2 smaller versions of this one, so I was eager to capture this—for $20!
In the purchase of one of those items—I “lost” $20. :’ (
I had CRISP, NEW, bills from the bank, and even though I WaS mindful of this–I gave extra money out by accident. I only realized it while checking my cash in negotiations for a really cool 5½ ft section of intricate fret work. I had to re-group at this revelation–and didn’t buy thAT piece.
*I’m giving whichever vendor the benefit of the doubt that they didn’t realize it either~but lucky them.
Silver lining~it seemed to open the door for OTHer great luck!
Like the bed pictured above–that will most likely become two benches for resale–$50.
And the alabaster, fluted, urn-styled lamp, omG–for a whole $20! It’s in eXcellent condition, only needing to be rewired~which I would have done aNYway for safety-sake!
I also found that fabulous vintage sheet music for future projects—only 50¢ each~I took $5 worth! The black & white interior sheets are perfectly worn, aged, and discolored–and I luv the titles!
As I was leaving, I saw the burlap feed sack I saw first thing in the morning –but no vendor to be found– happened to stiLL be there (waiting for moi?). It’s a great size and inCREDibly soFT! $2
