A quick redo.

My new blogger friend, Kim was having a yard sale today. She lives about 40 miles north of me and I wanted to go to her sale. John and I took off this morning on a much needed wandering day and found some great yard sales. Kim's was by far the best for "finds" I left with two ladders, several plates and bowls, ice skates, a half moon plaque, a sifter and two train cases. A great haul! We stopped at three Goodwills, and probably close to 10 yard sales....these were my finds.
At one sale I was walking out and I heard the lady say that all the neckties were now marked down to ten cents. I did an about face and bought all 32 of them. I think that I am going to send them to Haiti with my pastor when he goes there next month. All of the pastors there wear white shirts and dress pants and neckties. How men here complain about dressing like that and yet for those men it has to be a symbol of respect for them.

The next to the last stop was at Finders Keepers in Brookville, Pa. That was the first time that I have ever been there and it is really a fun place. The owners are friendly, the prices not too high and they have a great place that they call the "dungeon' and I found this chair in there. Several weeks ago we had made our plans for today to be at an auction that was less than 1/2 mile from our house. They had an old wicker chair there and I have been looking for another one for the front porch for some time now. After checking the auction sheet online again at the beginning of this week, the chair was no longer listed. I have no idea why that happens other than pre-sales. Personally, I think that once it is advertised, it should not be removed...but enough of my griping. I am sure that I probably got a better deal at this place.



And voila! It is done! I had to do it right away! Finally I have a comfortable chair for me on the porch now.

You don't waste any time do you?? That chair looks great. I just bought a couple of wicker chairs (the resin plastic(?) kind) from Garden Ridge to put on my screened porch. Much more comfortable that those wooden rockers I had!! Looks like you had a super day!!

Hi Kathy!
What great finds.
I feel sad that I have not had time to go to any garage sales or flea markets this summer but hopefully will make it up this fall.
Thanks for sharing with us!
Take care!

That chair is incredible! LOVE IT! I so want to recover my out door cushions, I don't sew, so...won't happen. How do you know how to do so many things? I can't wait to see what you do with all your finds:) Have a great week.
