Vacation Day - Part Two

I also worked at my other booth Friday. I planned an Easter vignette around the gorgeous Last Supper framed print that I found at America's Thrift Store for $9.88.

Cute heirloom pink dress that was new WITH TAGS when I found it at the thrift.

Scrumptious blue chenille pillows:

My $5.00 aqua cart:

Flamingo pink Pyrex:

Until next time,
Happy Junking!

Vacation Day

I took a vacation day today to do "booth work.". It was a long day that started at IHOP and ended here:

At Stage Coach restaurant in Stockton, Alabama. Stockton is about an hour from where we live. We'd heard very good things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint! There was an elderly woman very tastefully playing a piano keyboard. She was wonderful! For the duration of our meal we played the ultimate game of name that tune. She would go from Yellow Rose of Texas to Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue without missing a beat!

My booth at the Queen's Attic had been badly neglected. But I remedied that today! The rest of my post is going to be image heavy without much narration.

I wasn't particularly happy with how this shelf turned out. I had collected several lighthouse things that I needed to get rid of.

That is one groovy lava lamp!

Do you remember the Fisher Price Happy Apple?

I also worked at Cotton City. I'll try to post those tomorrow.

Until next time,
Happy Junking!

My Dream Yard Sale Vehicle

I had to put my car in the shop earlier this week. When I pulled up at the shop I saw this van.

Seriously, is this not the cutest van ever?

So I'm thinking that this would make an excellent yard sale vehicle. Minus the McConaghy logo and maybe add Ms. Jackie's Junque in its place?

Until next time,
Happy Junking!

Location:Out and About in Saraland, AL

Happy Days Are Here Again

Yard sale season is back in full swing here in Southern Alabama and I love it! It didn't seem to me that there were as many yard sales this winter. We have a very mild winter so sales in even the dead of winter are not out of the question. That just wasn't the case this year.

My first big all day yard sale trip was last Saturday. I was not disappointed. My very first find was a vintage aqua metal rolling kitchen cart for .....drumroll $5.00. Yes please! I want to keep it but off to one of the booths it shall go.

Look at this cute bunny that I found at my fav thrift....America's Thrift Store.

Am I the only one that thinks that this bunny looks like MC Hammer?

Stop! Hammertime! Look at all this fabric:

Moving on... I tested my 8 cup Fire King mixing pitcher and made broccoli cornbread. It was perfect for the job.

I'm planning a BIG redo for each booth on Friday. I'll be posting pictures after that. I'm busy as a bee trying to get everything ready. Have I ever told ya'll how much I hate removing price stickers? Ugh!

Until then,
Happy Junking!
