Current status: a samurai who is vibrating with joy!



I drive a 1993 Volvo 940 Wagon. This car has an enormous "trunk". Currently said trunk is absolutely packed, filled, stuffed with vintage clothing (and a wasps nest, but that's not important right now). This morning I got up and drove to an estate sale of my dreams - when I arrived NO ONE was there. I went upstairs to find 3 closets of clothing without not one person around me, no one to worry about, no competition, nada. The woman who owned the clothing was somewhat like me, she seemed to have a collection of 1950s dresses, but then also natural, crochet/cotton type clothing just like what I am wearing in this post. Not only that, but there were bags, gloves and hats. AND, the woman running the sale was NICE! Yes, NICE! So many times the person running the estate is grumpy and sort of hates you for even coming, or so it seems. This woman was so so nice and took my card and I took hers and I am sure I will see her again and hopefully fill up my car as I did today. It is going to take me age to get all thesse garments processed and in the store, but it is going to be so fun later today to go through all the things and meet them all over again! So see, see why I am just vibrating with utter joy? Oh and I kind of look like a samurai today too...

The skirt you are wearing is stunning! And hooray on the awesome estate sale! You're right, most of the time the people are jerks. This must have been quite refreshing :)
