Happy Monday and Memorial Day. I hope everyone is remembering the spirit of today and honoring our service men and woman. I had a really wonderful conversation with a veteran this morning at the grocery store that made my whole day. I hope everyone gets a moment to take a chance to show their appreciation today.
I'm lucky that I'm on the North Coast because each Memorial Day weekend means the "Longest Garage Sale" in the Long Beach area in Washington. This is just a scary car ride over the Megler Bridge in Astoria. I hate heights and bridges, but make an exception each year to cross over the Columbia River because these sales are so fun.
Friday afternoon I was going crazy because I usually spend the whole day hitting sales, but I had to work, there was no way around it. Finally at about 2 pm I couldn't stand it any longer. There had been an estate sale advertised in Astoria that started that morning. I figured that it would be totally picked over, but I just had to go and check it out. I'm so happy I did.
I know Erica and I have both mentioned Instagram lately and how much we enjoy it. We recently started a joint account so we could start selling some of our goodies on Instagram. It is a lot of work but so much fun! I'm not going to share everything I got at sales this weekend, because a lot of it was for my Instagram sale today, but I wanted to share some of my favorite finds.
Well, I'm off to get ready for my Instagram sale and enjoy the quiet day off. The hubby is working, so its just the dog, kitties, and me enjoying the record player, lots of coffee, and playing with vintage things. Its the best.
