An older woman’s yard sale

Old women have the most interesting yard sales. The moment I saw these two older women sitting in the front yard, I said, “jack pot” ( to myself of course).

I’ve been looking for a vintage wedding dress to use for some photo shoots for a while now. I was so excited when I saw this old dress, the possibilities!

I then saw some old photo albums and hoped there were some photos in them. To my great fortune there were of someone’s shot gun wedding from the 70’s. When one of the women was adding up my total she said, “Oh she left some photos in here, should I take them out?.” I then said, “Oh I like old photos, I kinda wanna buy them.” The other woman said, “Oh just sale it for a dollar.” I then felt a little guilty that I was taking someone’s memories but it was her fault for leaving them in album. Don’t judge me.  The deal was too good to pass up.

Another item I had been in search for was an old black bible with red edges. These bibles are family heirlooms and hard to find.

Their were too many tea sets to pick from. I wanted to buy them all but I picked two that caught my eye.

The last item was too cool to resist, even though I’m not in to playing cards. The illustrations won me over.

Yard sales are way cheaper than the thrift stores. I hope I don’t become a hoarder.

I enjoy making videos and taking photos. I’m married and have a little girl. I love being creative, it helps me process life and my thoughts. I make YouTube videos about my record collection and music. Thanks for visiting my site and hope to hear from you.

One thought on “An older woman’s yard sale”

  1. You always make the simplest of things look worthy and desirable… Ordinarily I would never think a deck of card’s illustrations nor someone’s photo album as something of value but it really challenges me to see the beauty and creativity even in the littlest things.
