I went out to the yard sales on Saturday, it was a complete waste of time and gas, I had a list of about fourteen sales, a few I stopped at, some I just slowed down and looked, some of them, I didn't even slow down - you know how you can just tell if you need to get out! Well, most of them were that way - needless, to say, I bought nothing.
Sunday we took a drive over to the flea market - or as they call it "flee market" - I had in my mind to get the other Scotch brand Christmas tape that I left behind the last time I was there - success, no one bought it, it was still waiting for me.. and because the price wasn't marked, today it was only 25 cents!! So, now I have three of these, I guess that's an official collection, isn't it??
It's funny, when my husband and I look in a showcase, we see different things, he pointed these little figures out.. They're so ugly they're cute - hillybilly hedgehogs! They were made in Korea, so we took them, two for $5, after researching them on line, I think we got a pretty nice deal. There are a lot of these figures made by Peter Figuren. What do you think?
And, that's all I bought. But, of course, I have been thinking about something I saw, its been there the last few times I was at the flea market, but after posting it on Instagram, I think I was silly not to try and get it, if it's still there next time, I will offer less than $25, maybe they will sell it to me. It's a beautiful pail and it's big, the graphics are just so vibrant on it!!
I don't usually do a post of all Instagram pictures, but I am today, some of you have seen these already, you can follow me here, if you'd like!
