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 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's a win-win.

Discovery and Painting

I'm painting again. Went on a yard sale hunt last weekend with success. Got some new items that I'm dying to re-create! Going to northern Massachusetts next month to visit my first born for Parent's weekend. When he's seen enough of me, I plan to yard sale up there. Last time I was there I bought an incredible wicker side table. However, since I'm flying this time, I have to limit myself to items that will fit in a suitcase...that's going to be tough.
