The "Sale before the Sale"

His wife thinks it's funny. His obsessive-compulsive behavior!?!?! This is Kenny.

Tammy, aka Skip to my Ewe's is his wife. They came over yesterday to pre-shop. First pickin's at the garage sale. Kenny has a booth at a flea market and Tammy told him he'd love some of my junk!! You see I have the same OCD that he does. We call it garage saling. Others call us junkers... Whatever you call us, it's addictive. Searching through someone elses junk to find just the right treasure. Kenny will tell you it's always the stuff at the bottom of the box in the back of the garage that's the best. You have to work for it. That's where alot of people miss "the good stuff". They're not willing to get their hands a little dirty.

You know when you have a husband with an obsession it's hard for them to say ANYTHING about our buying wool. That's my hubby
in the back of the pic. Holding Jimmie Dean. He's a bass fisherman. Talk about obsessed!!! I told him if he started looking at my wool stash, I'd start counting rubber worms and lures.

Here's a better shot of Kenny's treasures from last night. His truck won't hold another thing!

Renee' and her lovely daughter Haley came over last night too to pre-shop. They made a haul on crafting supplies. Haley's art teacher is letting them expand their creativity and do some altered art projects. She got some good stuff too! Renee' is one of my friends that I hook with at Simply Fibers. (She also works with Tammy) Sorry I did
n't get a picture of them.

I also thought I would share with you the "Secret Garden" that Mickey built for me on Mothers day. We filled it up with plants that we divided from our other gardens in the yard. This one is way, way out back.

See that dark black spot in the upper right of this picture? That's my new garden. Like I said way, way back. Our l
ot is real narrow and deep. Something like 400 feet deep!

I'd better get back to pricing things. I keep pulling out more junk. When will it end?

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend. And BE SAFE!

Boy, the way Kenny and Tammy hit your garage sale early was the way to go. Can't wait to see what treasures they brought home. And Rene and her daughter, I bet, scored pretty good. Too bad we live so far apart. I am sure that some of your goodies could help this place start to look more like home.

Hope everything thing else goes well. We have 60-to 70% chance of rain from tomorrow through next Tuesday. Bummer.

Just be sure Jimmy Dean doesn't end up in someone's big purse during the sale. He is so cute,you best keep an eye on him!

Good luck,

Good luck with your sale! I don't get to many of them. Looks like the pre-sale shoppers got a load of stuff.

From the looks of your loot --- I bet you had one terrific garage sale. I sure hope you didn't get any rain. Guard that baby, JD. He would fit into someone's purse! Shoot, he'd fit into their wallet. :-)
