What could be in this interesting box?
Garage Sales are famously ebb and flow. After kissing the equivalent of 40-50 frogs, this particular day produced a handsome prince. Always one wanting to know the back story of an object that catches my eye, I learned that this particular set had been a gift from visiting Italian relatives. The recipients never used it and decided that now was the time to see if it could find a new home. I volunteered–for only $10.00!
I have enough experience with garage sales to know that the journey has to be the fun part of the morning. Fabulous finds are far and few between. Enjoy learning a new neighborhood and talking to people. An hour or two of morning relaxation before starting the rest of the day’s activities. Sometimes you even get lucky.
