A lucky start at the Yard Sale

Well it didn't take me long to get my 2nd and 3rd FREE items today!! Yea for me!! Are you wondering how I'm so darn lucky? I'm going to tell you my secret. I just go up to the vendor and ask how much they want for the item....they just tell me it's " free". It's as easy as that. I don't know why Sue has such a hard time getting free items. Maybe she doesn't smile enough..or use charm..or maybe she didn't use her deodorant... Who knows?

Funny signs we saw today.....

It got sooooo hot we found ourselves suddenly Inside of some sort of ice cream shoppe where we were forced to sample some ice cream for them. It passed our standards.

We were just standing around treasure hunting when all of a sudden, we look up and lo and behold, there right before our eyes is a news crew interviewing important people about the yard sale. Of course he came right over to us and started up a conversation - he asked us questions about the yard sale and then filmed us right then and there. Wow! Can you believe that!!
We didn't believe we would really be on t.v. But it was fun anyways.
Later on during the day, some people came up and said they recognized us from t.v. - they said we were on the 5:00 news!
That's right everyone! We are famous! There were many others who also recognized us. We were having a hard time just walking around without getting bombarded by all of our many fans.

At the end of the day, it finally happened! Sue got her 1st free item ever at the yard sale!! Yea for her!! Let's all give her a great big hand!!

This was a great end to our yard sale / treasure hunt 2010. We found great items. My favorite thing was finding the glasses that match my green plates (although the glasses happen to be clear).
Sues favorites thing is the Fenton ruffled edge jelly set with a glass spoon. (sorry no pictures).

We loved coming this year it was fun. We made friends and saw many people from last year that remembered us. As for 2011.....
