I'm starting to get the hang of this thing. Every year, during the first weekend of June, Bordentown holds a city wide yard sale. Joe and I take our bikes out and peruse the streets for bargains and fun things. There isn't always that much, but then again, they say that one man's trash is another man's treasure, right? First thing I set my eyes on were childrens books. Now this doesn't quite break my rule of "no baby stuff before baby" because I'm a teacher, and I've got lots of childrens books! Besides, how can I turn down some really GREAT books including a vintage Raggedy Anne and Andy book in addition to a Harold and the Purple Crayon book along with EIGHT other great hardback kids books for 2 bucks! Yes! a quarter a piece!
Now, living in an old house, it takes some time to realize what antiques you are drawn to. I find myself drawn to bottles, boxes, and linens..I was in luck today! I managed to score several old Wheaton, NJ bottles and a neat wooden box for near pennies! A good day it was!
Tonight, we're off to see Page at the TLA with some dear old friends. It should be a good time, if it isn't too hot and all!! I can't believe Summer is upon us already!
