March 12, 2011Kitsch-tastic Estate Sale In Adorable Time Capsule
So, I really haven’t gotten to know all you new readers. I mean, I see all of you lurking in the darkness, so I know you’re there. But I mean really, really get to know you. Really. Let’s spend some time together. Have a meaningful conversation. Let’s share an experience.
Let’s go shopping!
Well, I mean, there is that whole location annoyance to deal with. I live in Michigan. You live in Texas. Or Nashville. Or Hollywood. Or wherever you are from (I told you I didn’t know you that well!) so we are going to have to do some cyber-shopping.
Since we are all bargain hunters, let’s go to an estate sale! How about this estate sale by Jamie’s Attic Estate Sales in Detroit? It is close to me and…well…I am lazy. So you are going to have to do all the driving.
Oh my goodness. Okay, well, we are going to have to lay down some ground rules. First off, we will take turns picking things and we have to promise not to snatch things from each other’s hands. (Like that little reindeer on the corner of the table. That’s mine.)
You can have this little rabbit-guy, even though I like his…umm…cornucopia.
And this pile of garland. You can have that too.
But these ornaments are mine.
And this cowboy light. Mine. (Ummm…can you say “Squee!”?)
This sculpture? Also mine.
But just look at all the rest of this stuff you have to choose from!
But not these. These are mine.
And that necklace at the bottom is mine, too.
Don’t you just love this table???
Wait, don’t touch that cookbook. That’s mine. And that orange beverage set. And that turquoise tray in the background.
Did you see these cabinets??? They are awesome!
I’m sorry, did you say something?
Oh, no. That relish set on the fridge is mine. I called it ages ago.
See, plenty of stuff in here. Look at all those magazines!
Which are also mine.
Here, hold out your arms. I am getting both of these lamps. And can you hook your leg around that dress form?
I am getting that ice bucket. And that fondue pot.
Can you see that pink tray in the background? Tuck that under your arm for me. It’s mine.
I’m getting this light, too. It is so mine. Put the rest of this stuff I am holding in your purse then let me climb up on your shoulders so I can disconnect it.
Oh, we won’t get electrocuted. I do this all the time.
Do you think they would mind if I pried that divider out of the wall? Really? Well, can you make some noise or something and distract them? Then they won’t even know.
Fine. I’ll leave it, but I am taking that automatic iron. It even has the matching chair!
Whew, wow. I am glad we took all this time to get to know each other! We have to do this again soon! Now, help me load all of this stuff in my car, will you??
This amazing estate sale is going on THIS WEEKEND in Detroit!!! If you have half a brain and live anywhere near here, you will get your butt out there and buy stuff! More info and TONS of pics are at Jamie’s Attic Estate Sale’s website!
