glorious garage sales
craig and i went garage-sale-ing for our date saturday. we had so much fun that craig insists we go every single weekend for the rest of our lives. (i think it's just because he got the awesomest deal) i totally fell in love with this wooden box, and the tin on top. i'll think of something to use them for. :)
craig informed me that this bed cover was the most hideous piece of fabric he had ever seen and that if i bought it he would vomit each time he walked into the house and saw it.
i told him i could probably make a bean bag out of it, and sell it, and he was just fine with that.
some hand-crocheted pieces. the square i'm thinking of cutting in half diagonally and putting over a skirt, front and back. the thin piano cover below i'm going to dye, and then back with some kind of wonderful fabric, and wear as a scarf.
but the best deal indeed was craig's. He got all this loot for $20. he threw away between 20 and 30 pens, but still had enough to cover the table. He even made a couple of gift bags for some artist buddies of his, and had tons and tons left over. the man was in heaven, he was so happy.
he felt bad for the seller, for a bit, thinking the guy must be kicking himself for letting it all go so cheap. but he got over it.
