Treasure Hunting Early

Bright and early start this morning.  I usually get up early anyway.  The day seems to last longer when I'm up early and getting started on my to do list.  This morning I wanted to get in line early for the rummage sale in Crystal Lake.  It was fun to stand around and talk to my rummage sale friends.  It's such a nice way to start the day.

The sale was quite large and I did find some nice treasures.  I found a giant pottery seashell ($5), vintage jewelry (mostly pins for 25-50 cents each) and a few vintage tablecloths for $1 each.  I even stopped at some garage sales and found the boys some video games.  Since they are coming home tomorrow, I wanted to add some things to their pile of treasures that I have found for them.

There is a church rummage sale in Barrington tomorrow on Church St.  I haven't been to this one before so it should be a nice surprise.  There are some garage sales listed in the paper that I hope to get to. 

There is a flea market every Sunday during the summer at Wilmot Mountain in Wilmot Wisconsin.  I haven't been there in a while but my friends say that they have found some treasures and that it is quite large at times.  I should probably get there to check it out.

Happy treasure hunting!
