Y’all, I am sooooo far behind on life!! Seriously. I think it all started piling up about a week ago, just before we kicked off the Summer Junk Market. That week prior to market is all about survival! Ha ha!! And doing only what has to be done to make the market go off without a hitch! That…. I accomplished. Everything else… not so much!!
So, about the Junk Market blog post… yeah… I’ll get to it, I promise! In fact, I started working on it tonight when I realized that I have oh-about-400 pictures to sift through. Eeeek. That’s just a little too overwhelming for this gal. So, I decided why not tell y’all about my little getaway to the 301 Endless Yard Sale this morning instead?! ‘Cuz when you’re behind on life, why not hit some yard sales, right??
I knew we wouldn’t have long… we had to get back so the hubs could get to work. But we managed to hit a few really great stops. We started near Benson, NC and travelled north along 301 to the Micro area. It was blazing hot, but luckily lots of the vendors had bottled water for sale… GENIUS!!
While we found lots of really great treasures for the shop, there were a few things I just couldn’t pass up keeping for myself. One thing for sure is this old set of drawers… with all the springs still inside!!
And then this antique farmhouse light!! Yeah, I really want to keep it too! The shades on the lights are tin! Some days I have no problem slappin’ a price tag on things and stickin’ it in the shop, but others I want to keep everything I find!! Ha ha!!
And last but not least, the tub will make it to the shop! I’ve got quite the collection at my house. But that spool?? Yeah, it’s the perfect height for a side table in my living room. Soooooo…. wellllll….. you know.
All in all, it was an awesome day roundin’ up junk at the 301 Endless Yard Sale!! Did I catch up on life? No. Did I get the Junk Market blog post written? No. Did I get the Fall application finished and sent out to all of you who have asked for it? No. But did I take a much needed break and go junk huntin’? Absolutely!! And sometimes that’s the little breath of fresh air I need to jump back on the horse and tackle the ever growing to-do list!!!
