Lucky Seven!

Not to sound negative, but this wasn’t the most exciting garaging weekend I’ve ever had. It’s hard to get too worked up over a fifty cent vegie scrub brush scrubberor a kitchen towel from a free box (even though I like them both).

Picked up a couple of nice wine glasses as back ups for the next time we break one (an all-too-frequent event, usually in the dishwasher and not because we got drunk on the wine).

These came from the sale of a guy who was seriously into wine and clowns. I believe he had worked as a clown or something. Perhaps a drunken clown, who knows. (Now there’s a creepy image!) Judy spotted a couple of probably-vintage plant stands on his driveway so we each scored one of those for a buck.

But…it WAS an exciting weekend for me, because it was my 7th blogiversary! (Sheesh, what a word. I can’t believe I used it.) Yup, seven years reporting on what I bought and who I met. Over 430,000 page views, which seems pretty good to me. After all, this is kind of a niche market! The only way I got myself to start blogging was by promising I could stop if it wasn’t fun. But it was, and is! Who know, maybe I’ve got another seven years in me. Hope you’ll still be along for the ride too!

  2. I love reading your blog and seeing the treasures you acquire. Wish you were near me, we could do serious damage together at sales. Lucky Judy!

    1. Hmmm, that sounds exponential - 7 years and 7 more, 8 years and 8 more...

  5. I'm in the UK where we don't have yard sales (no idea why, they're an awesome concept), and I really love reading about the amazing things you find on your weekend thrifting excursions (and seeing the photos of some of the lovely pets you meet along the way too). Happy bogiversary and I look forward to reading many more of your posts in the future.

    1. I guess your car boot sales are along the same lines? Maybe you should start a new tradition of yard sales in the UK!
