S was perusing Craigslist yesterday and told me that today, after their church service, a local church was giving away everything that didn't sell at their annual yard sale. There were specific instructions: what street to enter on, what door to go in, an invitation to join the service b/c no one would be opening the door a moment earlier than the 11:00 start time. 11:00 start time, right up my alley! Thank goodness S just bought a junker of a truck for situations such as these and HD runs.
I will catalogue it in future posts, but check out the piles we got, all for free. We spent 40 minutes there, and were the third in line to get in. The church was thrilled to get rid of all these things so they don't have to schlep them to Goodwill. No wonder some of these things didn't sell, they were priced way too high.
That's one bag, 4 boxes, piles of frames, wallpaper...
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Did i say fa-ree! This will be my crafting desk, so i can spread all out and go to town!
S assures me he will cut a piece to fit where the sewing machine was. I asked the church people (what else to call them?) if they do this every year, and this is their THIRD year!! The guy said they've listed it on CL for the last two years, so HOW DID WE MISS THIS?? We stalk Craigslist like the paparazzi stalk Brangelina, so i can't believe we've never seen this. Maybe since i wasn't blogging then i didn't care or want other people's crap to remake? You can be sure that this time next year, the stalking will be amped up. There is no way i am going to miss this!
Oh, yeah, and these 2 directors chairs.
I have to say, that's some mega haul. I didn't mind the many trips we made to the truck, or the many trips to bring it inside. In fact, i gleefully skipped. No seriously. Full of glee. And skipping. And clapping. And kissed the junker truck in all his peeling paint glory for his timely arrival into our lives.
