This past Saturday was a hot one.
So hot that candles left in the sun for mere moments melted before your eyes. So hot that people who set up for garage sales wanted to give up before the shoppers, who were walking, in the sun, from sale to sale.
So hot that prices were being slashed to get rid of it.
I did not get an early start to my treasure hunting.
I was disappointed in the sales I was seeing, it just was not fun.
Did I mention it was HOT?
Then I came across a very nice woman tucked in an alley. Her items were quality and her prices were slashed. Nothing over fifty cents.
I noticed a plastic bag.
She said, no one else had even been curious. I could have it for a quarter.
Already distressed with nice patina. It also has a lovely blue detail.
As I jumped at that, another flash of blue caught my eye.
A trianglular crystal bowl, very heavy.
Filled with catseye stones and a gel candle in a triangle container.
I picked up a few other ten cent treasures and walked away with change from my buck.

I am also linking this to The Tablescaper’s Summer Sun meme.
I am sure you will also find me over at Bloggeritaville on Thrifty Thursday with another post as well.
I have just learned about Midweek Blues at The Dusty Cellar.
