The Kolden Report: Yard sale #1 and weekly review, June 7, 2012

Hi, kids!
 
It is official.  Yard sale # 1 is taking place tomorrow from 2-6 pm at the Homestead storage unit, east end.  The storage is located south of the Homestead Inn on highway 2 in Wolf Point.  This will be ongoing for who knows how long!  I have a lifetime accumulation to whittle down and there is sure to be something for everyone.  Many of the items have the original yard sale tags from when I bought them so some of you may recognize your own stuff! (No inflation in my yard sale world.)   I'm also going to keep a "wish list".  If any of you collect ANYTHING, you can  request that I watch for your beloved treasure and when I come across it, I'll notify you.  After all,  my motto used to be:  "I collect everything but dolls.....and sometimes dolls"!  
 
Next weekend, I am planning a Saturday sale, all day. 
 
I have passed along your comments and compliments to Teddy, on his snake tale and have asked if he'd like to collaborate on a book.  Am awaiting his reply. 
 
And now, on to a short report!  (This treasure sorting is cutting into my photography time but, such is life!)
