Family Reunion Garage Sailing 6.10.2016

Do you prefer to write "garage saling" or "garage sailing"?  I prefer the term "sailing".  It evokes an image of sailing delightfully through cool, uncrowded streets with wide smiles on our faces - while picking the most tantalizing vintage items. 

All to say, that we went garage sailing on Friday of our family reunion in Nebraska.  We broke away from the reunion, along with our son and daughter-in-law and headed to a small, nearby town that was having a citywide garage sale (a total of 10 or 12 sales).  So the term sailing fit the morning pretty well: hair blowing in the wind (because we just left the sliding van doors open), wide grins, uncrowded streets, interesting vintage purchases -- just with 96 degrees of a blasting Nebraska furnace instead of the cool breeze

Here my son is standing by "the one that got away" --
a perfectly chippy $30 kitchen cabinet, already sold.

But we did surprisingly well for attending that few sales.  I am just teasing you with a few quick treasure photos on this post, more to come.

This great wire basket came with the antlers,....

three duck decoys and....
these rubber turkey decoys which were worn as hats for
most of the reunion.
Overall it was quite a "Zingo Bangy" time.
Linking Up With:


  1. That water bag is fabulous. Never saw one like that.

  2. Don't you love the graphics? I've actually sold a couple of them before. It is going on ebay.

  3. What a great day--family, fun, and garage sailing! You really scored some great finds--love it all, especially the duck decoys. Would love to learn more about them myself. So glad you linked up your posts with us at Vintage Charm :)
