They say that ‘one mans trash is another mans treasure’ and no where do these words ring more true than at summertime yard sales. Friday through Sunday our area is loaded with yard sales and many of us like to go early to find the best treasures. Here are a few of our favorite finds.
[media-credit id=4 align=”alignleft” width=”225″][/media-credit]I once spotted a man carving with a chainsaw in his front yard. I told him if he would carve a fairy that I would buy it. He did, and so did I.
favorite finds was this handheld mirror which I only suppose could have been by a real bonded messenger used to send signals. It could have been part of an
advertising promotion; who knows?… But I love it! I bought it for a nickel at
what you might now call an estate sale. I have been prone to collecting oil lanterns and other gadgets of old. Some of my most prized possessions were gathered in the early Saturday morning hours, “yard sailing” with my sister. Great memories and great finds I wish you all, on your yard sale adventures.
