Since that area is basically "antique row" the majority who flock to the show are mostly out-of-towners. But it drums up business for everyone in our rural area which is terrific! It gives us locals an opportunity to have garage/barn/yard sales. Heck there are sales all over the county this weekend!!
Normally, my sweet hubs and I partake in the fun by having a barn sale. This year I decided not to and boy am I glad I didn't!!
As I headed into town to do my grocery shopping, a little voice said "Stop at that sale ahead."
So I parked Betsy and as I walked down the driveway I'm pretty sure I heard angels singing. ((giggle))
There she was in all her glory! A beautiful lone comb back Windsor arm chair!! Lord knows I have been searching and searching for one to use as my desk chair. But they are impossible to find, especially a single one.
Needless to say I jumped on it like a monkey on a cupcake. Actually, I ran and sat in it. There was no way I was leaving without it. Man I was hoping it wasn't sold so it would be mine and the police wouldn't need to be called. ((giggle))
After I paid the woman, I wrestled her into ol' Betsy and headed home. Ummm... Not the woman, the chair.
Forget grocery shopping now!! Who needs food when there's bargains galore!!
As I pulled up to the ol' Countryfolk homestead, the "Six Million Dollar Boston Terrier" was waiting for me.

Happy Friday, all!!
