Yeah, I'll get the tires put on next week, just to get it out of the way.

My sis and I, when we do get together, drive around after yard sales, when items that didn't sell get put out on the curb. You would be surprised what nice items are abandoned for the landfill. On our last hunt, I found a bag filled with vintage crochet patterns, which I considered myself lucky to have found...one person's trash is another's treasure.

That kind of shopping I could get into. Walmart has more trash than what gets left at the curb after a yard sale. lol.

Looking in a walmart dumpster wouldn't be my next choice.

For a few years back during the nineteen nineties my mother and i use to own and operate a small antique store uptown (or is it downtown?) here where we live buying and selling just about anything old and i totally love going to and browsing through yard sales and flea markets and antique stores...

Nice table, but does it convert somehow...if you look on the side it appears odd, in that, it may be elongated.

That is the same kind of ancient cabinet I would see in my hunts and they usually wanted way too much money...in the lines of $135-150.

I am on the hunt for old leather-working tools, but no luck so far.

How can I describe my day. We collected winter coats and drove around town for 3 hours looking for troopers (what we call homeless here) and handed out winter coats. That was cool. They were so happy. We found five cold people.Then came back to deliver a burger to Whaler, back to the field and round up a brood mare. Took a 4 month old stud colt for a walk, halter training, who crashed up against me fighting the lead shank and kicked me in the knee tissueguy.gif Pretty emotional day.

It was an awesome day AS. I really can't think of a more satisfying way to spend my time than looking for cold and wet people to make warm and dry.

And it makes you cry to see how willing they are to accept the offer. Nothing but the offer of warmth and caring. And it didn't cost anything!
