Farm garage sale windfall with a surprise… or 2

read

I will admit to one thing. Being involved in a local market kicks you into action! So I went shopping on the weekend again. But with a little surprise in store. On Saturday, I wanted to run to the local store for soup.  Just soup! So off I went. Landing a nice homemade mushroom variety, I […]

So, on the weekend, I went to an antique auction! It’s been YEARS since I sat in the sidelines, white knuckling my number as my favourite page came up in the roster. I’m not sure if I adore the process or not, but I hung in there, because some things just needed to come home […]
