Crumpton fun

Well, I finally made it to the Crumpton auction...fields and fields of possibilities! Crumpton is a well-known outdoor auction on the Eastern shore of Maryland that is open every Wednesday, rain or shine. You can find some cool stuff and a lot of junk. It's really fun, but takes some getting used to -- you have to be a savvy shopper and bidder. It's the second time I've ever been there and this time I wasn't quite so overwhelmed.
I ended up with a sweet, little vanity that needs A LOT of work. I also bought a cute table, that needs a good cleaning, from my friend Cassie. So, much to do...so little time!!! I have made arrangements to get my stuff out of the garage and into a friend's warehouse. It's a barter deal. I'm there to answer the phone and receive deliveries once a week and I get to store and paint my stuff...it's a win-win.

Thanks for posting about Crumpton -- I've always been curious about going.

Anytime you want to venture out there, I'm game! It's a little crazy the first time you go, but if you go with someone who knows the ropes, it's better (not that I'm an expert "Crumptonite" or anything).
