After sleeping late on Saturday morning I got up and announced to CG that I wasn't going to leave the house all day. I grabbed a cuppa and my iPad and leisurely started browsing the internet. At 9:20, to my complete and utter horror, I learned that there was an auction, starting at 10:30 a.m., in a neighboring state. The contents of a closed sign business were being sold. AAAAAAAAAAAAwwwwwwwwwwwww - why didn't I know about that? I ran for the shower and was dressed and out the door by 9:40.
I walked into the building just before 11:00 and a quick scan showed boxes and boxes of sign letters, not as old as I'd hoped, but lots of them. By now I'm sure you all know how I feel about letters.
There were also some great old signs, but since I no longer have my van, I really have to consider every purchase that I make, and whether I can easily get it home. I particularly loved this one:
So did you figure out what's missing in the photo?
Urban Farmgirl. I've followed her blog for ages, but don't ever remember officially meeting. It was great to get acquainted a bit.
All in all, I'm glad that my Saturday took an unplanned turn, but wish that I'd done my homework so I'd known what was cominig up! Has this ever happened to you?
