Yard sale-ing out in the countryside of Oregon is a much different experience for me than in the more urban areas of Northern California where I used to live. There are fewer shoppers in general and definitely fewer vintage shoppers -- prices seem lower to me too.
I'm still a little shocked & thrilled when someone wants only a dime or a quarter for something or says "Just take it."

Some of you asked about my recent yard sale endeavors and due to the excessive amount of loot acquired in the past seven days (some of it purchased to re-stock my neglected 'things-I-find' etsy shop, PeppermintBark, now patiently waiting to have pictures taken...), I'll just hit the highlights here.

Also, in order to photograph said loot, I move it from the Loot Holding Area (downstairs) to the Loot Photography Area of Better Daylight (upstairs) and then return it to the LHA (downstairs).
Loot + Stairs = Lazy.
Vintage Christmas picks, corsages and spun heads. Dee-lightful.

More vintage Christmas stuff. Missing from this photo are the rolls and rolls of vintage wrapping paper.

Your garden variety spun head Santas wearing what looks a lot like some sort of fur-trimmed holiday lingerie. Standing next to an avalanche of vintage chenille.
And some Bluebirds of Happiness. I think they're happy because they like vintage tablecloths.
My unbridled enthusiasm for vintage Christmas collecting/hoarding is beginning to stack up in the LHA so later this month I'm renting a case in an antique mall so I can unleash some of the madness. I'll fill you in on the details once I get moved in.
No idea. Maybe you know?
Have a wonderful evening!
