For the second Saturday in a row I had to make myself scarce so my landlord could crawl up into my ceiling and do something with wires and electricity. His crawl-into-the-ceiling ladder blocks access to my bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, so I decided leaving the apartment was the best course of action. Normally, something like this would be grounds for a session of day-long grumpiness on my part, but today there was an asiago bagel from The Ultimate Bagel, six estate sales, a visit to the liquor store, and a trip to Target to buy invitations for Mom's upcoming 60th Birthday Party Bash Extravaganza! And at the end of the day (so now, basically), I'm in a pretty good mood. I found some awesome stuff at the estate sales, and I ate the heck out of that bagel.
Oh and one more thing. Remember last week when I mentioned the best Spokane thrift store, which no longer exists because its roof collapsed in 2008? Well, I found its new location today! It's in the shady part of the valley (Spokane Valley), and when I say shady, of course I mean skeezy. Lots of gentleman's clubs, lots of bars next to manufacturing companies, stuff like that. But still, it's there! I was very excited. I sent Catherine a text.
Usually, I'd have posted a couple estate sale pictures by now, but I'm not sure if there's anything I can post yet. I think much of it will end up on the gift pile or on the gift accoutrements pile. That's why, for now, I have to keep it secret, keep it safe. Monika knows what I'm talking about.
I feel like a jerk with all text and no pictures.
So, here are some estate sale finds from this summer.
