The Good, the Bad, and the Bargain

Feeling a bit like a vulture on the prowl, I visited a local estate sale in search of...who knows what.  Just looking. That's what I told myself. This particular sale was held in a shabby woebegone barn located waaaaay up a twisty dirt road in the depths of Forestville. 

After parking the car, I ambled toward the poor old barn's entrance thinking, as I spied baskets and boxes galore of junk yard items, that I was wasting my time. However, that was not the case as I found my way through the introductory trash maze and entered into a wonderland of forgotten once-loved  treasures with bargain price tags .

I left the sale with a few choice collectibles, my favorite being a cheery tomato salt and pepper pair that called my name pleading, "Take me with you." And so I did. The vulture guilt faded, especially when I arrived home and placed my fabulous find on the kitchen counter where they lit up the room like Christmas tree lights. They make me smile.


  1. those are really cool salt n pepper vulture guilt at all...smiles.

  2. OMG! Those are beautiful! Nothing entices me like a tomato. LOVE those things. :)

  3. They are so bright and shiny. It will be like having a little bit of summer on your table this winter.
    We go antiquing a lot & I know that feeling when something is calling your name and pleading to go home. It's very hard to resist : )
