incoming this week......


a beautiful piece of terracotta....from an old building....

lots of old molds and pans from a bakery

little stained glass windows and cheap

lots of small open cabinets from the carpenters...

piles of jewelry.... mostly in the 1$ box but some in the case

A NICE PAIR OF 8 FT DOORS,with big windows

recycled ~~~ aka junk birdhouses

pile of linens with some nice 1950s table cloths

old decals

more books, sets, curwood, kids

art deco sled and a newer set of water skis

2 more typewriters

rotary phones

SO IT WAS A VERY GOOD WEEK........we bought from our chicago buddy, jon went yardsaling....and my best supplier had me a nice big fat pile!!!

with a store you have to think several months ahead ....Also ive been ordering madly for the fall and christmaas.... ....im trying to figure out what everybody will be in the mood for this year....i got some cute and cheap and some big and fabulous...this is something dh and jon dont help me on at all....its just over their heads..... so its mostly carol and lana and ruth and i looking thru the catalogs and trying remember what was popular last year and what was left over....and whats neat and new for this year...

the yardsale is so close..AUGUST 9..we got the postcards...dh designs them and we print here...im working on lining up the workers for the big day....its takes lots to set it up and at least 10 on the sale day.........and as usual it seems impossible to get it all done and priced...but we always do ....with a lot of hard work......and my yardsale building is really packed this year .... ..

one of my favorite parts of the sale is seeing the rough room out in the sun.... you can see its full potential then....it gets so piled up in there!!! and there are always hidden gems even we havent seen for a while...

Oh...I love your "just in" postings!!! I could spend hours in your store (i know, i know - i've said that before!)! LOL

Can you loan me your $1.00 jewelry bin? I promise, I'll send it back after I pull the sparkles out... LOLOL

Hope you are having a wonderful week!!!
