Had a GREAT time this weekend!

Well I never got around to posting about the SALE OF THE CENTURY road trip Rachel and I took up to Oxnard but to put it in a nutshell there was alot of truth to that advertising! OMG there was so much stuff! I would have driven the 250 miles again for the discount day but darnit I didn't. Still we brought home a van full and I've been busy listing my finds on eBay and Etsy!

So about 2 months ago Rick and I made plans to go to Palm Desert with our good friends Kathy & Bill and their 11 year old daughter Jamie for the Memorial Day weekend. We were excited...the guys would play golf and the girls would thrift shop all day! The thrift shops in the area are fabulous and that Jamie is a real shopaholic!

Well on the Saturday morning we were to leave I got on and there was an incredible sale in Ontario! Supposedly the lady was a hat and clothing model in the 50's and 60's and she saved so much that the sale had to be moved to a warehouse! Just the kind of sale I dream of! Hmmm, I wondered if Kathy and Jamie would mind waking up at 5am on Sunday to make the 90 mile trip to Ontario. After I regained my senses I thought that might be pushing the envelope a bit so I never got there, darnit!

But not all was lost, there was a sale just across the street from our condo where I got some goodies!

And of course we totally scored at the thrift shops! Check out the linens I got!

It was a great weekend filled with great friends and I still managed to find some treasures!

PS I happily came home to find my new Etsy banner in my inbox. It was designed by Claudia of Green Nest with images from my collection. I absolutely LOVE it!
