A good one. Needed that.

By complete accident I stumbled on one of the year's best adventures. I was actually halfheartedly looking for a yard sale that had a sign posted by my house. I didn't see it after two lights and  was turning around to go home when I saw a sign boasting "Antiques & Misc. Decker Prairie Community Center"..... anything that warrants the use of a community center is worthy of scopin out. Even if Decker Prairie is a meth lab hotspot with a mullet to regular hair ratio of 3/2..... Despite the shady location the prices were unreal! Most everything I bought was $1.

 Needs a couple knobs, but what a beautiful radio. $5 !
 This telephone chair/gossip seat was only $10. It's a light pink that you can't really see here. Probably my favorite thing I found today :) 
 I got this for my mom and only paid $5 for it! It possibly doesn't work and most likely will never get repaired but it's such a lovely piece of history.

 You wouldn't believe how much stuff they had still with original packaging. And for $1 each! Okay, okay. I'll stop telling every price. That kinda erks me, so I won't be a hypocrite.
 Box full of paper clothes, too. I don't ever see things in such great condition. I was totally impressed by these sellers. I asked a man if they used to own an antiques shop and he replied, "Nah. We're just expert junk collectors." I think I felt my heart skip a beat! It was definitely a moment ;)
 All this baking stuff is for my mom's Christmas. Don't worry, we're safe. No one gives a crap about my blog.

 Suuuuuper happy with the dolls.....biting my tongue from telling prices......
Hey Delena, this doll has my hair.




 This guy is MINT condition. 






 Soooo, that's it. I really wanna move into my own house like an adult. Until then I'll just pose like one.
