Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

My youngest will be entering High School as a Senior which means no more standing at the bus stop in the rain…he drives, and no more back to school shopping…he wouldn’t be caught dead shopping with his mother…besides he has his own Debit Card.

His last year in High School is bittersweet but it doesn’t mean I can’t go “Back to School Shopping” and take advantage of the end of the season sales.

I may not be doing this…

But I can do this…

Leaving TJ Maxx I saw Barbie, a true fashionista, whose skirt and top were purchased at Nzinga’s Boutique.  A perfect outfit to wear out and about running errands or shopping (s/o to Steve aka Ken – lol)

Next year we will be paying College tuition so there will be no more Back to School Shopping for me, also bittersweet!

Have you done any Back to School shopping or taken advantage of the end of season sales?

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

Here we are again, the 1st Saturday of the month so you know where to find me – set up at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown.  I am still trying to purge household items, clothing, books, shoes anything I don’t need in order to make a few extra dollars and leave less to pack or donate when we decide to downsize.

Flea Market in Middletown

community-yard-sale-300x214

As in most states you’ll find community yard sales, but did you know that the longest yard sale starts in North Addison, Michigan and goes through to Gadsen, Alabama?   It is 690 miles long and people stake out their front yards along Hwy 127 for 4 days to sell new and used items!

According to the 127sale.com website, the yard sale officially starts the first Thursday in August and runs through to the following Sunday but this year it started on the 1st.  People travel from the North, South, East and West some make it an annual event renting RV’s and camping out year after year.  “An exchange of cultures with a common goal; to look, buy and sale!”

Can you imagine taking a week’s vacation to go to a Yard Sale?  Oh well, I’ll just stick with my little space in the parking lot on the first Saturday of the month from April to November!

Flea Markets are fun because you never know what you’ll find!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For me Thursday is the best day of the week, we’ve made it through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and start to look forward to the weekend. Thursday is a heads-down day at work, tying up loose ends, finishing up the weekly to-do list in anticipation of an easy breezy Friday.

Thursday is also a day of reflection some even define it as Thankful Thursday. As we rush through the week from one event to another, it’s nice to take a few minutes to think about and then speak aloud for which we are grateful. Speaking positivity into the atmosphere is a good way to keep life’s trials and tribulations in check.

“Count your blessing so that you can lose count of your problems”
