Today is a perfect September day in mid-Michigan. The sun is shining, the sky is bright blue and the air is pleasantly cool. I started out my day with a job interview- good, but not exactly fun. The drive home was lovely though, because I found a couple of nice yardsales, with low prices and old stuff!
I got all this great stuff for less than $10. The first sale was just the kind I like best. Everything had just been hauled out of the barn, and it all had to go... nothing was more than a dollar! I found the six foot length of picket fence at the second sale for $2. It was fun fitting that into my little car!
Yes, the old cooler is very grubby, but I'm not afraid of dirt and it is still functional... as long as I don't plant flowers in it! The old insulators were a mere nickle each. I especially like the flower pot mosaiced with rocks.
I was really tickled to find the post hole digger and the pruners. I needed both, and at $1 each, what a bargain!!
I'm not sure how I'll use the old cider jug yet, but for a dime, I couldn't pass it up. Who doesn't want pumpkins in September? The lady I bought them from has a large pumpkin patch and these were just some of the few she had for sale. I'll go back in a couple of weeks to check out what has ripened. She gave me a good tip, to make your pumpkins last longer. Give them a nice soapy bath, rinse well, then dip them in a weak water and bleach solution and allow them to thoroughly air dry. She had the most beautiful white pumpkin for $7. Out of my price range, but so cool, and it would practically glow all by itself at night. I may have to save my pennies and get one later in the Month. Maybe if that job comes through...
