I've had an extremely buzy week... but that should, hopefully, translate into cash with the next Paycheck.

I was supposed to go into the Flea Market today, to straighten out my booth and see how sales were going. But I was just too tired to bother. They'll have to get along without me today. It's one of those stores where you set it up, and their employees take care of the money and sales tax and all that, the write me a check once a week.

Did finally venture out of the house take care of some errands, and ended up stopping at a whole bunch of yard sales on the way back... managed to find a few good buys. The disadvantage to getting out there late is that a lot of the stuff has been picked over. The advantage is that after about 11, those people are starting to get tired and they don't want to repack all that stuff up... they're willing to deal!

So, I came home with a few pieces of vintage jewelry, some snuffboxes, some tools, cowboy hats, cowboy boots and a set of margarita glasses, all of which I should be able to resell after I've done a little cleaning and such... Not bad.

My niece is moving back to Texas this weekend with her fiance', flying in tomorrow. Coming by plane because she sold everything. She said she had no interest in dragging all that crap halfway across the country, except for a few things which she packed up in a box to ship. Smart kid.

No pics today.


  1. What a good day finding all those good the way that flea market kinda way to do things! Hope your neice will like living there...sounds like you are happy she is coming! YEAH!!!

  2. Of course I'll be happy to see her, but there are some other family issues happening right now, which I'm certainly not going to go into now.. let's just say she might be jumping from a frying pan into the fire. But then, I may be worrying too much.

    Guess we'll have to wait and see...
