Last weekend there was a neighborhood garage sale nearby. It was raining that Saturday but I went out anyway. It had been so long since I've been to a good sale!
I had a few good finds. Several name brand tops for $0.50 - $3 a piece. Aero, Arizona Jean Company, American Eagle, etc. A few cute long sleeved henley style shirts. A turtleneck sweater. One nice hooded sweater and one mini sweater (the kind that just hugs your shoulders). Also, I picked up 2 pair of jeans for a few dollars each. After trying them on at home I can tell they don't fit well enough to be good going out jeans. However, they'll be ready for scooping poop and gardening, if nothing else.
Another great find was a riding helmet. I really needed one since I've been riding on my own more this year and can't always borrow one from a friend. It is not a good idea to buy a used helmet in case it has been damaged. I feel okay about it in this situation because I'm pretty sure the girl just lost interest in riding. It was only $5. I'll have to try it for a whole ride to see if it's comfortable. If not, for $5, I can donate it to 4-H.
What started as a blog about the happenings here on our Centennial Farm has now evolved in to a little more personal account of things from my point of view as a new farm(er's) wife. Stick around for awhile and hopefully you'll learn a little about everything from industrial and sustainable farming to raising livestock to being green and maybe even catch a good recipe or two. Enjoy!
We're on our way out of debt and on to greener pastures...
