It's a Hot One in Atlanta... Parking Lot Sale today at Vintage Village was a huge success ~ Selling on the asphalt always brings special buys...

It's a Hot One in Atlanta
Complete with a Parking Lot Sale on the asphalt today which always brings
out the bargain hunter in us all. I love junkin... we've opened up our sales to public participation when there is space and had 3 additional sellers today that had some cool stuff.
Homemade Brownies, Gingerbread, Pumpkin Bread too. Miss Willie had been baking so she
sold by the slice...YUM! It's a bit dangerous when she comes to our sales, I'm sure we don't want to talk about calories or fat grams but oh, well...
I shopped and worked a little inside... just an overall fun busy day and I left early. Bonus!
This Hag purchased a charming vintage small mantel (it's plain and lovely with all that old character) ~ a vintage pocket watch case, a rhinestone letter A pin, a lovely rose floral vintage curtain panel, some great quality silk roses tied up with lovely old lace, some trailer trash string lights that work of course... (probably my favorite thing, I have an idea... can you tell) I'll take pictures once I use them and share.

Yes, of course I forgot my camera... so these are some past sale pictures just to give you an idea of what our asphalt parking lot sales end up looking like... a junkers paradise for sure.

While sweating in the heat of the sun today my thoughts turned often to
of our Son, Clayton. He is currently stationed at an out of state Army Base
in Officer Candidate School. I'm certain that he is drenched multiple times daily by the sweat from all those runs and PT that I'm sure fill his days and nights. Further, I'm sure his Mom would have gained no sympathy from him merely shopping in the heat of the day. I'm so proud of him and all our service men & women, their service to our country equals freedom.

Friday, June 18 "Flea for all Friday's" (12-5 p.m.) and
"Ahoy Mates, Treasure Shopping with Vintage Village" begins.

Looking forward to another busy week in this our business of bliss.
Until then...
