Yesterday as Mrs. Hillbilly and I were headed to the Anderson Island Historical Farm when we came upon a garage sale. It didn’t look like much of a sale from the road, but we parked the car and took a look around anyway.
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that garage sales rule!
Pretty much every garage sale I’ve been to has a boatload of pots and pans and other mismatched kitchen and household goods. This one was no exception.
There were even rusty old paint cans.
Mrs. Hillbilly went away with a chess board, a mini beaded gourd and some sort of science kit.
She bought the science kit for her kids so they could use it next fall for a science fair project. They are going to place Mrs. HB’s baby teeth in the tubes and see what will make them rot the fastest. Diet Coke, Lemon Juice, Alcohol, Sugar and who knows what else. Weird, but cool.
Oh and check this out. This is that lady who was hosting the garage/front porch sale. She was a total nut. I bought a tambourine for a buck and she chanted some sort of folk song for me.
I think maybe she had something in that cup of hers other than tea. Hmm.
I ended up leaving with an old wooden bowl, 2 wooden butter spoons, a vintage potato masher and a tambourine for $5. The Handsome Husband took one look at my purchases and deemed them all trash.
I say they are treasures.
What do you think?
