It had all the makings of a spectacular yard sale day; beautifully balmy sunny day, little princess on an overnight at her grandmother's, loads of listings in the paper, up and out before 8AM.
But we were coming up empty. The high point of my husband's day was the Hulk Hands he found and then sprayed orange for the upcoming Flyers' playoff hockey series. Sad to say, this was my high point too. Unless you count the bag of Yu-Gi-Oh cards I bought for Nick. Which I don't.
I was getting depressed. And hungry. And tired. We had been out for three hours and I had nothing to show for it. And then...it happened. Yard Sale Karma, coming back to me.
Five minutes from home, I see a MASSIVE yard sale with boxes and boxes on the lawn. An unadvertised special. And boy, was it ever. Special. Very, very, special. And also unadvertised, which is why all this stuff was still there when I got there at 11AM. I got all this vintage Christmas --
...and this Almond Joy box in excellent condition (Oh, have you ever had Almond Joy ice cream? Sooo good! Now I'm distracted.), which was holding...
... and these Japanese paper lanterns...
Whew. That's it. Can you believe I got all that at one spot AND I got it all for (wait for it)... $20!!! Yard sale karma coming back to me after the annoying guy incident, I guess! Woo hoo!
