Being Dutch and all did not prepare me for my first ever garage sale here in the Pacific North West. Nonetheless I was pleasantly surprised by said shopping experience, in the comfort of somebody else's bargain hunters infested home, when my friend Gale invited me to tag along.
What I found there seemed at first like a useless bunch of porcelain trinkets, unreadable books, wobbly tables, broken christmas ornaments, hair rollers from the seventies and clothes that will never come back into fashion. But after I got past the overwhelming level of crap it turned into a a magic treasure hunt of epic proportions. Making sure not to miss anything, I think we spent over an hour in an area not bigger than most people's living room.
Below you can check out a chunk of my loot, which includes red frame sunglasses, a silver and gemstone cuff bracelet, an engraved glass jewelry box, a hand embroidered cotton hand towel, an English porcelain plate and a sixties copper necklace. Thanks Gale, that was awesome!
