~ Trinkets~Treasures~and Trash ~

Oh, today has been busy and I'm ready to just sit back and relax. Bright and early this morning we set up for a little garage sale. There were........ trinkets, treasures and some what I would call trash-(junk)....but at one time I loved it all. Some little chippy roosters.....
Isn't this a sweet little English figurine? It would make a nice treat for someone special...
Some hand bags and lots of little coin purses. People are so funny...one little lady wanted to buy a purse and her hubby told her you have enough and the only way you are going to buy one is if you find a $10 bill inside.......then along came a nice lady who was so excited to find the Dooney and Burke bag she had the matching wallet.
Christmas pretties and I'm so glad the Rockwell plate has found it's way to a happy home. We even had......
boy treasures. Carl sold 6 fishing poles, several rod cases and I think a reel. All in all it was fun...but lots of work and I'm really glad it's over. Hugs, Linda

Yard sales are a great way to meet interesting people and I like it when someone finds a treasure they really adore!

I enjoy browsing yard sales but hate to have them myself. Instead, I just donate my stuff. I'm happy for you that it was a sucessful day.

Garage sales are a lot of work!! Hope you did great with yours!! I love shopping them but not too much into having them.
I got your check and if i didn't thank you for my wonderful birthday treats I am sorry. I have had problems with my email account. I LOVE that tape measure!! And that notebook is perfect!!
I think I recovered from our party, it was a lot of work but fun, I got the photos posted.
Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday!!
Hugs,

Well done on your garage sale Linda! Cute little treasures, glad they found good homes,both me and my parents could do with having a sale, although its mainly boot sales here, in large fields! I'd love to have a garage sale tho...

It is great to be able to earn some money from our old and unused stuff. I really have been lucky selling our stuff online and have earned enough to have paid for our new couches. I am not working towards paying off our dining room chairs too.

Thanks for stopping to say hi at my new blog! I cannot believe it was already time for another SAL ornament.

Relax and perhaps stitch after working your garage sale.

Hugs ~

Looks like you had a fun yard sale. I have only ever had one, and that was enough. I helped my cousin with one though. Interesting people, hummmmmmmm.
Hope yours ended up earning you some money.
