Mrs. Peel rides again
Lots of furniture, household items, china, glassware and household items.
I found some DVDs of movies I haven't seen. Duane did even better, though. The lady who had lived in this house must have been on a perpetual diet. There were all sorts of magnets, pictures, etc., making jokes about pigging out and losing weight. Also, her clothing ran a range of several sizes and many items still had the tags on them. Duane found a smart-looking red dress that looks like it was never worn.
She also found a lovely blue wallet in
pristine condition and a Victorian style planter.
After this sale, we hit a garage sale on the way back to Duane's house. The man giving it was an artist and Duane scored a cool wood easel and several lovely hardcover art books. I bought a nice hardcover reference book on antiques with lots of photos for $1.
Then we headed to Starbucks for refreshment. Ah, nothing like an iced coffee and a vanilla bean scone to boost your system. We hit a fabric store (I'm planning to recover my dining room chairs as part of my project to 'de-formalize' the room) and then to Kaleidoscope, one of our favorite places to browse for furniture and decor. A fun day!
