another treasure hunt weekend


It's all about the yard sales this weekend. Kyle has decided he wants a GPS to do some geocaching, so he's holding a yard sale today with a bit of help from his Dad to keep it running smoothly. I dug out some things last night to add to his sale. It's so hot this weekend that I think his big seller will be the bottled water he's selling for $1. There are literally hundreds of yard sales on the mountain this weekend. Mom will soon be on her way up and we are headed out to hit a few sales this morning with chocolate donuts in hand.

I stopped by a few sales yesterday and picked up those fabulous keys. I've been trying to find old keys forever. They have been elusive, but yesterday I spied these in a wine glass just as I was about to leave the sale. Definitely a diamond in the rough. When I pulled up it looked like a guy yard sale with lots of electronic type stuff and the guy manning the sale was a bit suspect. So glad I stopped anyway and went on with the hunt. I'm certain that my ancestors were hunter/gatherers.

Good luck on your garage sale! I love the keys. That is awesome! Definitely a well-hidden gem, hiding in the wine glass. And no.....I don't think your ancestors were hunter/gatherers. I think you are a descendent of a detective. You find the coolest stuff everywhere...things that people would normally skip over.
