I didn't find much at the two yard sales, an old copy of Les Miserables and some tacky plastic owls. I DO have a plan for the tacky owls, trust me. I'll post about the final owl creations later when I get them done. But the rummage sale at St. Leo's, now that was a different story! They were winding down by the time I got there and were offering boxes for $5. You could get a box of clothes for $5 or a box of books for $5 or a box of household goods for $5, but not a mixture of things. Except for me, that is! You see, I was wearing a Saints t-shirt as usual and one of the older gentlemen from the church came up to me and asked about my shirt. His son is the GM for the minor league baseball team in New Orleans, the Zephyrs. We talked for a while about how much we both love New Orleans and just had a good talk and a few laughs. Then he tells me I can have a box of any combination of things I want for $4 just because I'm such a sweet girl! **Blush** He wasn't flirty or creepy or anything, just a really lovely man. So I loaded up a medium sized box of stuff and you'll never believe what all I got for $4...
Well, now it's the weekend again already and I'm sure I'll do a little hunting for treasures again somewhere over the holiday. Or maybe I should just stay home and work on things I already have so I can have some Fall and Christmas stuff to sell at upcoming shows...yes, that sounds like a better idea. Whatever you choose to do this weekend, I hope it's lovely. Happy Labor Day!
