Well it was a great day at the yard sale yesterday.
Mom and I got there early and were the second group of people to set up.
People were setting up from 7.00am until 9.30 am.
There were inside tables and outside tables. Of course the inside tables were sold first and then the outside spaces were on a first come first pick basis.
We got a space directly at the door entrance. There were a bunch of people selling all kinds of house hold items and kids cloths and kids books and kids toys.
I realized that I was the only person with any crafting supplies.So immediately, I think that I am going to make a killing... NOT!!
Well, at around 2.00pm, I started to walk around. I had been sitting for over three hours and while people were coming around, no one was really buying.
I was content with the day. I got to spend it with my Mom just hanging out. As I was making my way back from the ladies room, out of the corner of my eye I saw this thing. It was calling me by my first name.
I have never seen one like this before. It is perfect in every way.
Well she wanted $30.00 for it. At that point, I had only made $14.25. I had promised my husband that I would not spend any money that I had not made at the yard sale. So I knew that I could not walk into my house with this thing and be in debt over it.
So she said that she could not go back home with it because she was moving to Ireland and was leaving in less than 3 weeks. Bottom line it could not go back to her house.
Oh, I knew that I was meant to be there. it was mine I had coveted and that was that.
So as the next 90 minutes pass, my Mom is looking out the corner of her eye every time someone walks out. My Mom could not take it any more, she finally gets up and goes inside and says what all Mom's say and it starts something like this "MY DAUGHTER is a Mixed Media Artist and she has been in..."
Mom then opens the door and shouts to me "She will give it to for 15.00 BUCKS. Come on and get it."
Well off I go with my 15.00 BUCKS and now I am the proud owner of the dress form!
It actually comes apart into pieces and can be cleaned up and made to look great!
It is a bit dusty and needs so good ole' fashion love. But trust me once I am done lovin' on this thing it is going to be the bomb!
So all in all I actually made about 2.75 and came home with MOJO flowing. Now to get my craft room cleaned and start.
until we meet again,
