Summer yardsales

I have only been yardsale shopping 4 or 5 times this Summer, but have found some great stuff. These gems were from a church yardsale a local friend had texted me about the day before. A new version of Alice In Wonderland for our collection, and this family of bunnies was split up and all mixed up in a huge pile of plush. Once I found one I thought I should dig a bit more. I’m happy I did because it meant all three came home to live with me.

locals…

Two exciting places are open locally, and are pretty new to me! My friend Molly discovered French Macarons sold locally! Before I knew about this place, the nearest spot for macarons was just outside of DC.
Also our Borders bookshop closed down and we figured the building would remain empty and sad for a long time, but were excited to discover a new bookshop has opened in it’s place. Beside’s books they sell records, cds, movies, and its all a mix of new & used (so you can sell your stuff to them as well) They also carry some Kidrobot toys (my keychains too) and other little designer toys. As much as I love Amazon and Wonderbook (which is our big local used bookstore) I’m really happy to see another bookshop pop up in the area.
