1) My mom called-- she has something like 50 handmade dresses from the 1960s for me!!!! She's been helping my aunt have an estate sale for her mother-in-law (no one died- she just downsized and moved). Up until yesterday, she hadn't found anything worthwhile, but then she discovered a "barrel" full of old dresses. My aunt says I can have them, and my mom's going to plan a road trip to bring them to me!
2) There's a nearby estate sale on Friday, and this one actually promises to have vintage clothes, hats and jewelry. And I have cash. This isn't always the case! Usually I just go to sales and hope that they'll have some clothes hanging around, but I've never found anything. And sometimes, when I want to go to sales that actually have stuff, I don't have money. I refuse to spend money I don't have, and I'll only buy vintage with the money I make from my Etsy shop, so it doesn't always work out. This week looks like a winner!
Anyway, today I hope to catch up on adding some things to the shop! I've been pretty lazy. I'm also catching up on reading blogs. I'm so behind that I actually got nauseous trying to read them all this morning (felt sort of carsick- like when I was a kid and I would attempt to read my sister's Encyclopedia Brown books on a road trip.. yuck!)
Happy Wednesday and Happy April!!
