I had big plans for the weekend. I always over plan. Always. I plan to clean the house, clean out the garage, do the laundry, make products to sell, go to flea markets and yard sales, clean, sand, & paint furniture, paint the shop building, buy stamps, write/address/mail Christmas cards, work on facebook page, work on blog, catch up on my sleep, watch television, read books, glue broken things together, and clean out the flower beds. Usually by Saturday morning I am running a bit behind.
Nostalgia At McRae Market Place
So, we head out on the highway, looking for adventure! When we passed a small Goodwill store my husband asked if I wanted to stop. No, last time we went there I didn't find anything. (Yes, I know that is so incredibly stupid.) But, in my defense I was reading the new issue of Cottage Living Magazine. Seconds later I reconsidered and we went back! First thing right inside the store was a big wide wooden picture frame double matted and a pretty water color inside. $19.99! In the same bin was an unused gold frame for an 8 X 10 picture. $3.99! Next up, an unused twin size white sheet, 2 yards of blue linen, a carved letter sign, a little white vase with blue flowers on it, a blue & white toile tin tea canister, and a "Main Stays Home" white curtain panel with crochet valance! Husband told me there was a sign in the window, 25% off for Veterans. Sweet! He's a veteran. The total was $24. 38! Turns out the big frame was 50% off! Score!

So, once again, I'm ridin' around in our automobile. My baby beside me at the wheel. WAIT! What's that? STOP!
We Love Angel's Wings Mini Mall
Okay, Mini Mall is a stretch. It's a small building pretty much as full as it can get. Outside were 2 high back upholstered dining chairs. One is a little loose but I pretty much expect that with used chairs. Fabric is a little dirty but I expect that too. Inside I found a heavy little wood and wrought iron sleigh. I ask if she wanted to keep the glittered leaves that were in it. Someone else might want them. She had a lot of fabric but only one that I wanted, an off white with dark blue or black stripes. Total $60.00!
2 High back Chairs
Wood and Wrought Iron Sleigh
4 Yards Fabric $5.00
On the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again....
