First of all, a big thanks to all the nice weather we've been having because that means sales! Eric and I went to a couple in the general New Hyde Park/Garden City areas, ran into some of our own customers and shot the breeze, made some purchases, had a leisurely lunch. All that good stuff. I didn't score a ton, but I'm happy with my scores.
Check out my jewelry loot from the home of a 92-year-old woman in Garden City:
And this jacket I got from a company-run estate sale in New Hyde Park:
I used crappy flash because my lighting was total poo this morning. But it's quite lovely and has an older ILGWU tag. Nothing else of consequence.
On a totally unrelated note, it's hard finding the perfect trashcan. I've been looking for months. Two days ago I was in the HomeGoods in Port Wash and found this:
(I told you my lighting was poo.) Anyway. IT'S PINK! And tin. And narrow. And tall. And lightweight. These were all features I was looking for. Well, except for the pink. My kitchen is not pink. The most important part is that it was only $25. Every other trashcan I found in vaguely the right size was at least $60. I may spray paint it red or blue one day but I have to rock the crazy pink trashcan for at least a little while.
Eric took the news of the pink trashcan extremely well. Add this to the list of reasons I love him.
