But I oh so redeemed myself this weekend with my major prim estate sale! OMG! The sale was in Social Circle, GA which is about 1 1/2 hours from home so quite a trek but so worth it. Just the preview pics of this home had me drooling! This lady's estate was entirely primitive everything! I wished to high heaven and back that I had dropped my camera in my purse before I went. I was just in awe walking thru all her cherished belongings and to see everything that I had only seen in magazines in such abundance. Now keep in mind that I was there day 3 which was to have been the final day and there was so much stuff still there and I was loving it all. I missed buying any furniture since I was there the last afternoon but some of the pieces were still in place so I could pet them at least. I started gathering things up and figured I had somewhere in the $200 range when one of the ladies running the sale told me everything was 50 to 75% off since it was the final day. OMG! I started going thru that house again and again picking up loot. The house was jammed full still of really great prims.
Now I know someone's wondering what she's gonna do with half of a wood bowl so I'll tell ya....make a shelf out of it with some old boards to put in the kitchen to hold dish towels
3 crocks just made my day until I saw the firkin and I was head over heels in love
Now I know some of you...ehmmm....Mom (not to mention any names) are thinking she paid good money for all that junk but trust me when I say It's GREAT Junk! I was just so totally thrilled that I rushed home to tell Mark what a wonderful day that I had. I must have looked like a kid at Christmas because I was jumping up and down, rambling more than normal and just so excited and he could certainly tell. He said later that he hadn't seen me this excited about anything in so long that it was good to hear my ramblings. Did I mention that he's really a good guy? One of the ladies casually told me that someone would be at the house Sunday morning for a few hours trying to wrap things up and I guess I told Mark that when I got home. Sunday morning I was puttering about and he told me to throw my clothes on because we were going back to that sale. It's 1 1/2 hours from home but I sure scooted around and was ready to leave in record time. I was tellinghim about that house all the way there and what goodies I hoped were still available.....then we pulled up to the house and there was only 1 truck there with a large trailer so my heart sank. I had driven all the way back over and the sale was done. They had sold everything left to this guy but he agreed to let me walk around to see if I wanted anything. I made about 10 trips back and forth....Mark came in to look around....and I started my pile in the corner. I gathered up about $150 worth of stuff and I asked him if he'd take $50 for it all. He studied what all I had laid out and commented that some of the things that I picked up were really of good value so my heart sunk. Then he and Mark started talking about "guy stuff" and the next thing I know he said yep $50 is good with him. I wanted to hug him but instead just beamed while they packed my treasures in a box for me. Here's day 2:
Lovin this bunny for spring!
I love gingerbread and I got them for 10 cents each so I bought all 15 that she had made
I have always wanted one of these cats and I got him for 50 cents
Now I'm off to play with all my new treasures and will post pics later this week once I have a special home for all of them. Yea!
