You think it'll never happen, you think, "there's no way I'll ever stumble across a bunch of vintage dresses at a yard sale", and then you stumble upon a bunch of dresses at a yard sale and pretty much use all your power not to pee your pants. Happened yesterday, and it happened when I had zero plans of going to any yard sales, because I never really go to yard sales anymore. I was on my way back from an antiques market actually, which proved fruitless, and instead of ignoring the yard sale sign like I usually do, I stopped for some reason - divine intervention! There I found these dresses (some of them 1930s, one even late 1920s) and these necklaces and totally had to look around to see if I was on Candid Camera (does anyone else remember that show?). The dresses have an especially pungent musty odor which is pretty much their only flaw - what the what!?
What about the 1920s/30s brass necklaces though? I mean, I'm nuts for brass jewelry like this, what are the chances I find two at a yard sale? I only now realize as I write this post that the larger necklace is missing a cluster, but I can easily move all the clusters and leaves around to make it look right again. The two new additions are now happily mingling with some other brass necklaces on a wooden rack.
Long story short, never say never people, you just don't know what you can happen when you change your routine, it's certainly a message to me, who can get a bit myopic when it comes to work/life.
