the phone conversation went something like this:
me: i haven't watched the actual tv show, but did you know you can watch episodes of that Canadian Pickers show online?
sister #2: i haven't had a chance to catch it on tv yet.
me: i just watched the episode they filmed 'at home'. there's a new shop that we HAVE to go to. just have to figure out where it is. now everyone is going to know about our secret antique spots.
sister #2: that big yard sale is this saturday.
me: what big yard sale?
sister #2: you know, one of those 50 mile yard sales.
sister #2: right-by -OUR- antique shops
me: i never knew there was one out there. uggh. why did you tell me that?
sister #2: well, if i had told you next week when you come home, you'd be mad that i didn't tell you this week before you came.
me: yeah, i guess (resigned sigh).
and so that was how i found myself yard sale-ing along a favorite country road with my sister headed towards OUR antique shops a week earlier than my original scheduled departure.
photo is of one of my favorite finds a 3 -1/2" twee trophy dated 1926, found at the "new" place.
