Garage sale


I've been away a few days to help my parents with a massive garage sale, the second in a series to help downsize my mom's flea market collection.

On day three we got to the point of selling lovely vintage glassware for a buck.


Have you been to or had a good garage sale lately?

    Pretty photos! The dog figurines reminds me of a ceramic "weather poodle" that came from my grandmother's house. It's supposed to change color (no joke) when the weather changes.

    1. You are so sharp-eyed my dear. I borrowed my dad's Canon T3 with my zoom lens. It does a lot better in low light than my old 20D.

      I have Canon EOS Rebel T3 but it's not as good as your Dads. I think it's because I'm using it with the lens it cam with. Do you mind me asking what lens you used for these pics?

      Oh, and btw, when I asked you about selling on Etsy I meant vintage glassware. I've seen some Etsy shops that do that.

    3. Maya, it's a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6. I got it for $100 during some sale on Amazon. Usually it's $200 or a little less. It does pretty good. Not great for low low light situations but you can get a nice fuzzy background (short depth of field) with it.

      If I lived near my mom we'd definately do an Etsy shop. At the moment, we are just trying to do a mass movement out the door. She has a whole barn full of glassware.

      Wow! I wish I lived close to your Mom too! LOL I would have loved to take a pick inside her barn full of vintage! Have a great week, dear.
