It’s Been A While

27 Apr

It’s been a while since I participated in Six Word Saturday and it’s been a while since I went

off to a table top sale

English: Car boot sale, Rosudgeon social club....

Car boot sale, Rosudgeon social club. Note St Piran’s flags for sale, under the table bottom left. A good sale for plants. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’m going to walk up to church with my dogs and spend money I don’t really have on stuff I don’t really need.  A pleasant way to spend  Saturday.

But first, I’m going to take a shower: it’s been a while.

    It’s been awhile since I have been to a market and yet my peninsula world is surrounded with regular markets! Good one!

    As good a way to spend Saturday as any. Maybe you’ll find something nice and invaluable there

    Have fun – that sounds like a nice way to spend a Saturday – I mean the table top sale, not the shower! 😉 Although a shower is pleasurable too. 🙂

    oooo I love to go to sales like that. I’m sure you’ll find a treasure or two. Please tell us what you find!!

    Have fun! One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!

    Here, we call them Tag Sales or Yard Sales (even if the items are not tagged, or the sale happens in a parking lot. Also: Rummage sales.

    Happy treasure hunting, TB!

    Is a table top sale similar to our garage sale or yard sale? Or do they only sell table tops?

    Hope it isn’t as cold as it is in Northumberland for those poor sellers! Sally

    I love UK Bar Coot Sales with a passion. We have nothing nearly as good. I have found that by visiting a few every weekend I could find targeted items – like brushcutter, camera, mountain bike, and winter-type clothes.

    The dogs must be excited to be going for a walk with their Mum.:) I hope you find something fun to bring home!


  14. hilary April 27, 2013 at 13:54 #

    enjoy – sounds like so much fun!


  15. Janie Jones April 27, 2013 at 14:18 #

    Great minds think alike. We’re off to the giant “white elephant” sale in our community arena today. Happy treasure hunting!


  16. Al April 27, 2013 at 14:21 #

    I always call these “crap sales.” (6 words)


  17. judyt54 April 27, 2013 at 14:36 #

    Great way to describe it, Tilly. I love yard sales no matter what you call ’em, which is why I never go. The temptations are right up there with unguarded cookies and the last piece of pie. Enjoy your treasures.

      In 16 years I have learned to be cautious, but I still succumb to the occasional piece of tat 🙂

    So as you go to the Sale, what remains your intention? To strike bargains or friendships?

    A lovely Saturday semi-adventure…have a good time and a wonderful weekend.


  20. sspjlife56 April 27, 2013 at 16:05 #

    I love to go to these types of sales!!!! Have a lot of fun!


  21. Rorybore April 27, 2013 at 16:56 #

    Table top sales is so much better than what we call them: garage sales. very weird since we are Not in fact selling our garage — just likely everything crammed inside it that we no longer need or use. oh…..ok, I get it now. 🙂
    But it is rather fun way to spend a Saturday.


  22. Kathe W. April 27, 2013 at 18:33 #

    very fun way to spend the day! Me? I am planting some more herb starts- parsley,oregano,peppermint and rosemary. It’s gorgeous and sunny so I’ll play in the dirt and then take a sower! Cheers


    • The Laughing Housewife April 27, 2013 at 22:50 #

      There are so many rude responses on the tip of my tongue about that sower, I think I’ll just say ‘Thank you for your comment’ and leave it at that 😉


  23. Xiomara | Equis Place April 27, 2013 at 20:06 #

    I hope you at least enjoy the stuff you don’t really need! And that the walk is fun for you and the dogs 😀


  24. restlessjo April 27, 2013 at 20:17 #

    You buy things so you can donate them back and then buy them again, Tilly? Something like that! 🙂


  25. Linda April 27, 2013 at 20:50 #

    Have fun at your “Table Sale”. We call them Garage Sales here in Kansas…and like you, we all buy stuff we don’t need at them! Ha! When hubby and I were in England we went to a “Boot Sale”…and it was fun. 🙂


  26. Grannymar April 27, 2013 at 21:36 #

    Hope you found treasure at the sale!


  27. benzeknees April 27, 2013 at 23:07 #

    I used to love yard sales because you always find such interesting things. I went to one at the beach a few years ago & found a beautiful table with a brass top. Paid $5. I still have it!


    • The Laughing Housewife April 28, 2013 at 09:27 #


      My boys sold all of their toys when we came back to the UK. They spent the money they made at car boot sales and tripled their investment 🙂


  28. April 28, 2013 at 02:46 #

    Garage Sales, yard sales, sidewalk sales, Estate sales. Love em all !


  29. mlissabeth April 28, 2013 at 03:26 #

    Yes, I feel the same, but I go anyway! I hope it was a good one and you found something fun.


  30. viveka April 28, 2013 at 14:21 #

    shower before shopping and walking the dogs … is that really necessary???? Be careful it can become a habit. *laughing.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
