NOT The Bins!
Believe it or not, I DO junk somewhere besides The Bins from time to time! I made two estate sale stops this weekend. One was a hoarder house, but not everything that gets hoarded should be. At one point I was down in the basement, trying to find something worth hauling out when another shopper said she was "stuck". I commented that if someone tipped over in a corner down there they might never be found.
Most things were un-priced, which I hate. It is so awkward if they name some ridiculous price and you have to say no thank you. Well I gathered up an armload of tins and headed over to the man in the lawn chair to ask how much. "Oh, those old things, you can just have them." DOH. I told him I insisted on paying something so he said 10 cents each.
I found 5 pieces of old restaurant china at the same sale and added them to my pile. When I was ready to leave I asked the price for the pile. $1.00. Well, okay sir, how about I give you $2. O probably should have given him $5 but who am I to argue.
The bottles and chippy metal plant stands are from a different sale and they were NOT 10 cents. As they say, one man's junk....
The wire dress form has snaps up the front. I tried to put it on but it hurt too much - LOL!
