I had a very frustrating garage sale weekend. I don’t know if it was my mood, the garage sales I picked or just the weather, but I just couldn’t get a groove going.
Everything was overpriced. $30.00 for a silver plated champagne bucket? $120.00 for a wicker planter box? Are you serious? Is this an antique store or a garage sale?
So no wooden folding chairs,
no vintage fans
and no Coke cases for me this week.
Now, my redeeming thing is that I went to the Volunteers of America store and found a few items.
I have found conflicting research online that either states it was made for Sears, Roebuck or was given away as premiums at grocery stores and movie theaters. It is a very pretty design either way.
And what is with Volunteers of America’s pricing? Why $1.91? Why not just say $1.99 or $2.00? And no it doesn’t come out an even number with tax added – it would be $2.04 with tax.
So, if fleurs is not the plural of fluer I can just erase the s. I took Spanish in High School, so not sure how the French words work. Who am I kidding, I have no idea how the Spanish words work either.
