hey there, sunshine in my heart i know life is long but it goes so fast

just wanted to share some of the fun treasures i've found at estate sales recently. both of these batches were less than $2 for everything. i was telling j that i wish there was something like a yelp app for garage and estate sales. especially estate sales, since some people throw the word around way too liberally. it's such a bummer driving a half hour for what looks like a good one on craigslist, then showing up and it's either ridiculously expensive or a very sad yard sale.

but the good ones definitely make up for it. rooms full of vintage dishes, linens, books and papers. craft rooms full of supplies and decorations. a garage full of old tools and, if you're lucky, those gorgeous old wooden crates (we've found some for $3 each!).

my goal is to start photographing everything i get, since they're usually so pretty and, for some reason, match aesthetically (which i guess makes sense if the person who's house you're getting them from liked certain things). ooh, writing this is getting me excited for this weekend!

i can't wait to really dive into an honest to goodness estate sale. around here, it's usually just a sad garage sale. love the little blue flowers and the 1935 note pad.

Back in Michigan I used to buy at Estate Sales and Yard Sales in Detroit and sell online and in shops. I often fantasized about starting the "Yard Sale Police" (although thinking about it right now, "Sheriffs" would probably be better.) The "Yard Sale Police" would

1. Collect outdated yard sale signs to be delivered on offender's front step (along with dirty looks and possibly a lecture about the environment and the value of other people's time).

2. Publicly call out infringements on language. "Hey Everybody! This isn't an estate sale it's just a lady trying to sell her really nice cookie jars at book value or higher!

3. Enforce restrictions on yard sale sign verbage. "Kid's Clothes must be called out on every posted sign". "You may not call this sale a 'vintage' sale because you have one off shoulder sweatshirt from the 1980s." "Estate sales must be at least 70 percent of the home...not just the weird laquered junk in the living room that you don't want anymore..."

I could go on! I'm out of the business now, so I've relaxed.... a bit!

What a lookout! So totally out of my dreams.
Ever since we saw you at the book sale, I've felt like we haven't finished a conversation and it's just waiting to be finished... :) Hope we can catch up soon.
