So the craziest thing happened today...

I was scanning through the classifieds of the paper this morning planning out my yard sale/garage sale route, and I found one that said "crafts." I was hesitant because "crafts" usually mean just crap and I didn't want to drive 15+ mins. to come away empty handed. Well, I pulled up to this cute house and started perusing the goods. I saw the table filled with amazing craft stuff and was so happy that I had decided to come out to this sale. The owner and I were chatting and she mentioned that she sells ribbons, trims, vintage stuff and the like online. As I was picking out more goodies she ran into the house. When she came out she handed me her business card and you should have seen me squeal! It was Heather of Speckled Egg!!!

I had no idea that she lived in MA, much less only 15 minutes from my house. She must have thought I was a total kook. But we got on the topic of Silver Bella and she gave me a great deal on her stuff. I came home (and mounted all my fab ArtChix stamps) and decided that I needed more of her craft supplies. I drove all the way back out to her house (and brought a MooCard this time) to snag what I could. She had nothing but amazing things to say about Silver Bella and now I am even more hyped up for Nov. than I was before. Oh, if only she could come along too! :(
Here are some pics of my great deals at Heather's:


A box of over 50 dress forms!!! These may come in handy for my Silver Bella swap.


Cutest little monkeys on parade atop giraffes!


So pretty!


Hmm... Silver. Makes me excited for Nov. these days just hearing the word silver.

Well, today was so incredible and I hope to be getting together with Heather in the future.

I actually dream about finding great sales. One dream was a particularly unusual - I dreamed that we drove up to a yard sale under a big canopy of trees that had lots of nice furniture pieces, but none of them were marked. I looked over to find the owner so I could ask the prices and saw that it was Ted Nugent (remember Cat Scratch Fever?) Anyway, I hollered, "Hey, Ted! How much for the dresser"? Why would I dream that Ted Nugent was having a yard sale?!!
