June is a busy month. So much to do and so little time. For our little family of dysfunction it means the end of school, the end of work (I know, I know, it’s not fair, blah, blah, blah), multiple birthdays, anniversaries, projects, planning of said projects, vacations, BBQs, unpacking the summer clothes that your winter weight won’t quite let you fit into anymore, etc.
Along with my change in flowers I’ve found I now lean toward old, loved objects as well. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older that I seek out these treasures. Every year in June, Portlanders stage multiple neighborhood garage sales. Some are in historic, wealthy areas while others are in newer, ritzy developments. If you’re like me and seek the thrill of the hunt you won’t want to miss this opportunity. This year I went to the Laurelhurst area. Unbelievable!!! If you have the same right brain thinking and imagination that I do, prepare to be jealous.
Apron from the 30’s = $2.00
Playing with all my new treasures = priceless.
So…what’s your best garage sale find??? Sorry Kristabel, you can’t count the spanking bench.
