Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.
I mentioned in a couple of 2nd Time Around posts how much fun it was to travel along Highway 11/80 to the Antique Alley sales in May. But a couple of weeks before that I had a great time in Chunky, Ms. with a flea market friend attending about 30 community sales in a small area! I love it when communities and neighborhoods have these sales especially when I can go with a fun friend!
Often I get carried away and forget everything I bought. That happened with this birdhouse in the pictures below. I unloaded it and pretty much forgot about it until today! It was handmade with wood from an old barn by a man who had recently passed away. We stopped at his wife’s home, and she reluctantly sold it to me. She said she had lots more that he had made, and was not ready to sell them all yet. I didn’t know him of course, but his wife was so sweet and seemed to enjoy our visit when we stopped at her sale. I would like to think that it makes him happy to know that his bird house has a new home, and will be enjoyed for years!
It might not look like much to the average person, but I love it! It makes me smile when I remember how much fun it was to explore this small community by attending their yard sales!
I love birdhouses and don’t plan on putting this one in one of my booths!
Do you have something that you’ve bought that brings memories to you? Tell me about it!
Thanks for the visit!
