For those of you who know me, I never go to garage sales - never have and never will. I have enough stuff of my own - I don't need more stuff. But today I made an exception. Cheryle was having a garage sale and she has good stuff so I thought I would pay her a visit. So at about 8:45 am I headed out - allowing for travel time I would arrive at exactly 9am. I was one of the first people there. The first table had all her "milk glass" stuff - I don't know if it is real milk glass but it sure is nice. I picked out 3 items - 2 candy dishes and one vase. My eyes then focused on a pair of x-country skiis, poles and boots. I used to have a pair but never really got into it. I thought now is the time. I asked Cheryle what size the boots were and she said 7s - I take a 6 - have been wearing 6 1/2 running shoes so I thought, with sox, I should fit nicely into the size 7 boot. I asked her how much and she said a couple of bucks. I asked how many couple of bucks and she said - wait for it - $2.00!!!!!!! For the skiis, boots and poles!!!! I asked if she was kidding and she said no. I said sold!!!! I picked up a couple of Martha Stewart magazines and paid for all my purchases - it came to a grand total of $3.35 - I gave her $4.00 and told her to keep the change. I got my stuff home and polished up my skiis, poles and boots and googled Skiloms. They are made in Norway - not China. I think I did quite well today. I can't wait for winter now.
See Ya By
