Sentimental Saturday

20 Oct

Day two and final day of the big garage sale. It was pretty chilly in the morning. Thank goodness I had a bin load of knit caps and gloves at my disposal. Miss Sherry saved the day again by coming to help work and remaining till the end for pack-up and clean-up. She is the energizer bunny on steroids. We kept discovering bags and boxes that had been hidden in the chaos, only to find more treasures that couldn’t be parted with. There was a bag of stuffed animals, toys and memorabilia in the mix that found its way back to my car. My mom had sewn a hand-made cabbage patch doll for Joe when he was a baby. Then, there were the Simpsons, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Speedy Gonzales. Keepers!

Another bag revealed the hand-stitched baby quilt that Mom made for my baby shower over thirty-two years ago. Back in the car. But, my baby cradle found a very good home with a new grandma, saving me a trip back to my vehicle at the end of the day.

The point of the garage sale wasn’t just to make a little cash from the many treasures accumulated over thirty-eight years, but also to find a good home and a happy place. Our friend, Tom Michero, otherwise known as Bagger Vance (today only), was pleased to walk away with a complete set of woman’s golf clubs for his lovely wife, Silky, and a few extra clubs and bag for his own collection. Yes, a good, happy home!

Now, put my feet up with a nice cup of hot tea after another long day. The end.
