We went to a garage sale that was a little further away than our usual haunts. The write-up was so interesting so we hoped to find some bargain treasures. We found treasures but they weren't quite bargains.
My first instinct was to grab all of these wonderful ephemera, Christmas and Disney items. I felt like a kid in a candy store. Then I asked the seller for a price and discovered that he had bought a lot of this stuff on eBay and was reselling them. The prices were high so I had to start putting many things back. I admit that I was pouting just like a kid.
I finally had just a handful of items and the seller was kind enough to give me a good deal on my selection even though it was still way more than I hoped to pay but much less than his original quote.
The last thing I bought were metal candle wax catchers (I think). They look like they slip under a candle to catch dripping wax and are shiny to reflect more light. I plan to use them in a project.
It was another pleasant, treasure-filled weekend.
