Yardsale season is in full swing in southern Alabama. I was out at 6:00 a.m. this morning headed to my first stop of the day, a church yardsale. I am a yardsale junkie! It was still dark outside when I left home.
OH MY GOODNESS! It could not have been a prettier day! The Azaleas are in full bloom! It is so beautiful with the big bursts of color everywhere. The downside is they will only bloom about a week longer and then they are gone until next year.
I found several things--some to sell and some things to keep and even somethings for family. I saw two unique vases at different sales. When I saw the second one I was like.....Ok....what's going on? When I asked how much the vase was the woman running the sale asked her mom "Mom, how much for this Gladiola vase?" Mystery solved. It has a unique fan shape. It kind of resembles a seashell. I know you'd like to see a picture of it. Too bad--it's still in my car. Since it was $2.00 so I decided to take a chance on it. I'm glad I did. When I researched it when I got home I saw several in the $60 range. Mine is unmarked so it may not be as valuable but I figure IF I get ready to part with it, I'll be able to make a little profit. I also discovered that the flower is also called Gladiolus. I love learning new stuff!
The good news is that I've already listed on eBay a lot of what I bought this morning. If you'd like to see my eBay auctions you can go here: MsJackiesJunque's auctions.
