It's been awhile since I did a post that wasn't Wednesday Hodgepodge, mostly because I've been a little busy lately. We closed the library on August 17th and started to move the next day. As of last Sunday we had the whole collection moved, that's a quarter of a million items in about a week. Now, we have two weeks of training before we open on September 14th. I have been at the bookstore since August 11th. This last week, I worked about 50 hours between the bookstore and the library, I was a bit tired yesterday when I got done. On August 16th I went to the state fair with a friend, that was pretty fun.
My first set of pictures are from a sale I went to on my way home from the library last Friday. There's a church across the street that has a rummage sale every year. Here's what I got:
I know I'm not supposed to be buying more art stuff, but I can't help it. When it's this cheap and I believe I'll use it, I buy it. I should make something completely out of my garage sale finds.
Last Saturday, there was a neighborhood sale that I went to, unfortunately it started out with rain for the day. I still went and found some great finds:
Next week starts training at the library and my last week at the bookstore.
