Community Sales Have Begun!

Yes, yes, YES! cried the Brocanters….along with a complaint (from Jabber) that there seemed to be three community sales all the same day.  This meant, of course, we would be unable to get to all of them.  So we settled on one near Thumper’s house because Thumper had offered coffee and treats later.  We never turn down treats.  Or coffee.

Off we went!

Thumper takes a look at some items for sale.

We saw some beautiful tulips in bloom–had to get some shots of them….

As always, we were surprised at some things we saw along the way:

  The jumper house was in someone’s backyard–maybe for a party later?

Another innovative seller had put up a huge stand advertising the shirts, lemonade. water and other items they were selling.  Their sale’s proceeds were for an adoption.

  Another big sale….

After several hours of searching for treasures, it was time to take a rest at Thumper’s house.  And have coffee.  And treats!

Raisin Bran muffins which Sosew provided for us along with some raspberry cookies and coffee from Thumper.

  Girlfriend sampled first and declared them delish! although she also asked Jabber, “What are you doing taking my picture?” in a challenging voice.  Jabber moved on to photograph….

Vanna patiently waited, refined lady that she really is, all alone, at the table–the kitchen table…..

She had to sit at the kitchen table because, as Thumper explained, the dining room table belonged to Scout.

Scout’s table.

Scout is a cat.

Scout is the only cat I’ve ever known who has his own table.  I wonder if he requires wait service?  I expect he does.

How very civilized!

Moving along in our visit, Sosew showed us her latest sewing creations!  How beautiful!

  But wait, there is more!!!

A beautiful purse to match!

  Very professionally done, too, I must add!  It was lovely…..

Then it was time for a brief pause for a commercial.

Provided by Thumper.

Who always has such personal and interesting commercials.

 This was all about her brand new Bissell floor cleaner!

Thumper missed her calling as a television advertising personality.  I am sure of it.  I mean, wouldn’t you buy a Bissell floor cleaner from her?  Look at that expression on her face!

‘Twas time to leave and take our treasures home.  We’d had a good time visiting, ‘scored’ some treasures for ourselves, enjoyed delicious treats and coffee, and of course, a wonderful commercial, too.

For a Saturday morning, it doesn’t get much better than this!
