This might be my favorite yard sale find, ever. Saturday morning, while enjoying my usual routine of searching the classifieds on my iphone, in bed, I see a dresser that catches my eye. It's listed under 'antique yard sale'....to make a long story short, I was up in about 5 seconds wtih a low dose of adrenalin running through my blood. Antiques for heavens sakes, who knows what treasures I would find! I had to go, the only problem was that it started in five minutes and I was a good 30 minutes away, not to mention the time it would take to make myself presentable. I quickly called to see if the guy would hold the dresser for me, he said he would for 30 minutes. That bought me a little bit of time. Thank you Mr. Guy.
I went though everything spending over an hour. I did get that dresser! (Hopefully I'll have it done next week. This week I'm working on my table and 6 chairs, it's a doozy). So anyhoo, thank heavens I picked up my mom on the way, she kindly watched over my 'buy' pile to make sure no one took the items I had already claimed. On my way out I decided to look in the linens one last time, I guess I hadn't spotted this quilt previously, but there she stood in her heavy, hand-made glory. I asked Mr. Guy what size it was, he said a queen. Then I asked how much. $10 dollars, was his reply. Taken. Sold. Snagged. Claimed. What ever you want to call it, it was mine!
I brought it home, washed it on delicate and layed it out to dry, still thinking it was a queen. My curiousity got the best of me and I decided to see if it would fit on my Cal King. It did! And. I'm. In. Love.
'Boo' wanted in on the action.
I love yard sales, it's a thrill to find something that you'd spend hundreds for somewhere else, for 10 bucks. That's a meal and a half at Wendy's for crying outloud!!
