So, on Sunday I went on a little adventure (aka: got a tiny bit lost) and ended up at this cool monthly "estate sale" in a huge old building. You walk around and there are a ton of rooms filled with neat old stuff!

The only problem was that pretty much nothing had prices, so I only grabbed a couple things. When I finally ended up at the end checkout counter, I had this cool old bag, and a couple things for the hubby.

The checkout lady looked for a price, and when there wasn't one, she asked what room I had gotten it in. I couldn't remember! There were a ton of rooms! So I kind of guessed the bag's location, and she said regretfully, "I'm going to have to charge you four dollars for it..."

I want to know in what kind of world is four dollars too much for a super-awesome old U.S. bag??? Not in my world, and I live in a pretty cheap world where clothes are bought for $1.50 a pound at Goodwill Outlet!

It's always fun to find cool places like that off the beaten path :)

Have a great Tuesday!


PS: If anyone local is interested, the monthly "estate sale" is located at 1601 Overbrook Road, Richmond, VA one weekend a month. The next dates are May 8th 10:30-5:00 and 9th noon-4:00.

PPS: I saw The Runaways last night, and it was pretty good :)


  1. That is a very cool bag! Worth every U.S. penny you spent on it!!

  2. Hi Amanda...I absolutely ADORE estate sales. They even take precedence over yard sales because usually the merchandise is better quality. Love your bag! Sincerely, Susan

  3. Super sweet bag!! I will have to check out some estate sales this summer!

    P.S. Glad you saw the Runaways! I really thought Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning were amazing, did you?


I love your comments! You all are the best!
