Offered to me while shopping at a Church Rummage Sale
Lemon Meringue to be exact....Mmmmm...leftover from the Church's Teacher Luncheon...
Lesson of the Day...Never turn down a slice of Pie...'"D I had to eat it there on the spot...

Here's what I found at the sale...

 This beautiful Sewing Machine Case/Table that I will refinish or paint and use as a bedside table

this Adorable Vintage Ring Toss Game...

Set of 12 white dinner plates; (country living box) actually vintage J &G Meakin Studio - England

Then, because that just wasn't enough, ...
I even got a chance to do some Garage Sales around my area's annual Whole Condo-Sub Sale...

some lovely Children's' Books and some wooly yarn

This is what I call...A Beautiful Mess..."D

What is the most you have fit in your vehicle on a Rummage or Garage Sale Trip?

Years ago, my mom, her sister-in-law, my sister-in-law and I crammed into my old Toyota station wagon. Remember those small things? We bought a vintage trunk, which we couldn't open unfortunately because it could have held some of the other stuff we bought! After yard-sales all day, we couldn't have crammed a tooth pick into that car and the only woman not holding boxes and bags of stuff was me because I was driving. What a fantastic day. And yours looks pretty wonderful too! By the way, each time I leave the house to go to sales, my husband always said, "Please don't buy anything big!"
