Yesterday we had a fun day spent with friends - yardsale-ing!
Apparently it is a local tradition with two towns that the road in between them is filled with yard sales and vendors come the weekend of Oktoberfest every fall.
(I think I'm going to like this tradition very much...)
It was so big that there was no way in the world we could see it all in one day. Jordan said we probably saw about a third of it - and we put in a pretty long day! We would park and walk up a ways and back down then drive up a little ways more...
It wasn't long before we began accumulating a little stash of purchases. I had a list of small things, craft items, baby things, and such that I was looking for. Found quite a few of them! Jordan had a list of tools and items for the house.
Too much stuff to see!
Yes, a baby bump picture. Really starting to show - all of the sudden seems like!
Also been feeling baby kick and move this past week for the first time!
When we got home we spread the 'loot' out on the bed.
I came away with
-a few pieces of maternity clothes
-2 lengths of fabric
-3 pieces of clothing to refashion into baby items and pillows
- a copy of 'Wild at Heart'
-5 little newborn outfits (we aren't going to find out if baby is a boy or girl, so don't draw any conclusions!)
-an antique style stone 'tooth powder' jar
I was tickled to pay scarcely more than a dollar for any of the items!
- a vintage Stanley thermos
- an auger
-a potato masher and a strainer
- a wooden adze handle
and we both decided to get some apples and pumpkins from some of the produce vendors. :) I've got some soup and some pies planned from those good-lookin' pumpkins!
I am already rather looking forward to doing it again next year!
