We are enjoying a looonnnngg summer here in Spokane which means more great yard sales! David & I headed out in the car early Friday morning to find treasure and shortly thereafter were wishing we had brought the truck! The sales I had researched on Craig’s List turned out to be a bust but they lead us to others that garnered a sweet lime green Frank Moreno pot (I just love his drip glaze stuff! and will have to display this one next to my other before resaling!), a Regal red aluminum pitcher (you all remember these from your childhood right?), a 3 globe tension lamp with Currier & Ives glass domes (from the sweetest old lady I ever met!), a set of 3 amazing French prints artfully framed in blue mats and anti-glare glass (these babies need to be researched before selling – anyone know anything about Duclos?), and a gorgeous Arabesque clock from the ’70’s with the original sales tag on it. And for myself? A pair of designer Michael Kors jeans and a cashmere sweater for three bucks!
OK, so what did I miss out on? A pair of Schwinn Le Tour III bikes that David & I couldn’t decide if they were worth anything for resale. Turns out they are! Note taken. Also found a vintage Singer Featherweight sewing machine – super hot sellers on Ebay. Unfortunately the gal wanted $400 dollars! Oh please!
