For four years I have been talking about going on a zip line. My amazing sister COMPLETELY surprised me with a VERY early birthday present. Along with an elaborately woven tale by my husband, I took the two hour drive with absolutely no clue what was ahead. To say it was worth it is a GREAT understatement. The best part of it was being so surprised and that I completely faced my fears. I really thought I would have trouble stepping of the first time and I just did it and it felt great! By the last run, which is super long and super fast, I was doing turns and woo hooing my way down.
Amazing day, but I am so behind schedule. I have a client presentation on Wednesday that I have to be ready for. So I will get back to projects and working on all the great treasures stored up in my garage after that is complete.

This was one of the rooms inside. There was some really nice stuff in here, just too expensive.

All of these signs outside were an amazing collection. He was "going out of business". However what I heard from locals was that he goes "out of business" every year at this time. I wonder if he would sell any of his signs?
We hit another place. Fun, WAY too expensive! These tubes are actually from an old textile mill and they had great labels on them. Again, very expensive.
These were out front, there was probably 8 of them. They were actually only $65 which was not too bad for the size. They were numbered bins from a textile mill as well. However, they were so big, I am not sure where I would fit one.

Here are a few of my favorites.
These chairs are amazing. They are actually leather with gold trim printed on the leather. Great carved details as well. Originally they had it marked that they wanted $100 for the four chairs. In the end, I walked away with all of this (with the exception of the ladder) for $100. Plus I got about 10 boxes of vintage ornaments.
Schedules for the weekend lead me to think that I will not be able to hit any more sales till next week. But I am sure I will find a way to sneak one in!
