Shifting the Junque

GR&DF our sale on Saturday went much better without the rain, but there was tons of fog. Now on Friday it was bright and sunny and then again yesterday bright and sunny..... the day we need it to be B&S it was foggy and craptastique!!! By the middle of the afternoon the fog had drifted on and it was nice but that was after about 6 hours of it not being so nice!! Like I told Rico and Dale it will be a good long while before I am on the sales end of a sidewalk sale. Overall it was a really good sale IMHO as we moved just about all our junque into other folks hands/car/trucks and made a tidy little bit of cash. The residue of the sale we packed into our car and Dales Jeep and took it all to the Salvation Army for them to deal with.

Yesterday was a nice day so we went on over to Eddies for breakfast and then on to the little Farmers market - picking up some nice vegetables. We also stopped a Bakers of Paris both again and got some bakery things for later in the day. Here is a snap of some of the goodies they had -


After getting home I did 6 loads of laundry - and vacuumed and shampooed the carpets - Such an exciting day. Finishing up all that excitement I sat an watched 6 parts of the 31 part "The Duchess of Duke Street" - 1976 - starring Gemma Jones. This is one of my favorite series to come from the BBC. I first saw it on Masterpiece Theatre. There is a Series one and a Series two both excellent and if you have never seen it I would highly recommend it. I also watched and flicker from Netfilx called "South Sea Woman" - 1953 - starring Burt Lancaster, Virginia Mayo and Chuck Connors. A WWII action comedy that was pretty entertaining - a silly premise but worth a look.

I didn't pick up a needle all weekend - just didn't feel it so no stitching.

Do remember to throw in your name for the birthday drawing HERE.
Thank you for stopping by!

Take care,
edgar

Nice bakery goods Edgar! Yum! I am glad you got rid of the 'junque' and even made some money. I only did one yard sale and absolutely hated it! I would rather donate my things...

Hugs.

I was having a really crappy day, sick, sore throat, too tired to even see my needle but LOL - I can now say that I am craptastique! Love the oh so French spelling!
Seem to remember my mum being addicted to the Duchess when I was in high school - must check it out. Thanks :)

Didn't realize I could feel this hungry at 5am! I can feel those pastries going to my hips by just looking at them.

Congrats on the sale. Bummer the day wasn't as nice as you hoped but sounds like it was better than the week before when you had to cancel.
And the picture from the farmer's market...YUM!
