Since I have a lot more local readers than I did many moons ago when I started these yard sale reports (and thanks to CBC Hamilton it's not exactly a secret that I live in The Hammer so my "blogger anonymity", if I ever had any, is totally shot) I've decided it would be fun to add some more local references to these posts. So, non-local readers, I love you, too - you just might not always know what I'm talking about, but you might get to know a lot more about the city I live in :)
I started off the morning at a sale on Aberdeen. I didn't buy anything there, but working my way towards Locke Street I encountered this little fellow on the porch:
I then headed slightly northeast to check out a sale on Herkimer, and scored this beauty:
This particular yard sale was located right in my old stomping grounds. I lived near Queen & Herkimer for several years, in this place:
I headed further north and backtracked a bit west to get to a sale on Dundurn north, where I didn't buy anything. Making my way further northeast, I happened to spy this:
Here was the scene at York and Bay just after 9 a.m. this morning:
From York and Bay I wove my way towards the James North area. I stopped to check a sale on Bay North, and while I enjoyed a stimulating conversation with the proprietor, I didn't buy anything. My next stop was a sale on MacNab North, where I found these:
I then made a stop on Mulberry Street, where I found the coolest thing I DIDN'T buy this morning:
A selection of retro frames!
By then the day was really starting to heat up and I was starting to run out of steam, but I pressed onwards to check out one more sale on James North before taking the Waterfront Trail back to Westdale.
The view from Burlington and Bay this morning:
After making it back to my own neck of the woods, I stopped at one final sale where, miraculously, I didn't buy any books even though they had a ton of them.
That pretty much sums up this morning's adventures!
Grand total for the day: $4.30 for 4 items, or an average of $1.08 an item.
Did you find anything great this weekend?
