One of the best 'hunting grounds' for affordable
and unique treasures is at community sales.
Every August the nice residents of Wolfsville, MD, gather for a picnic which features Blue Grass music, homemade goodies and a sale to raise money for the campground maintenance.

The elderly gentleman sitting beside the empty lawn chair is Bob's cousin, Don Kuhn.  He's a 94 year old veteran of WWII who still farms and keeps a garden.

After greeting family and childhood friends Bob headed to the tent where they sold homemade ice cream and real from-scratch deep fried potato chips.
I headed to the community yard sale!

And just look at my box of treasures:

It's a veritable vintage treasure trove:
Original oil painting  

Adorable 1950s Napco Spaghetti poodle figurine

An old Ball mason jar 

A vintage syrup pitcher 

An awesome industrial metal desk lamp
(that works!) 

A beautiful hand tatted doily

A Fire King Bonnie Blue cup and saucer

An old silk tapestry/rug (look how big it is beside the Fire King
cup and saucer.)  Definitely not my taste so it's going on eBay. 

A promotional calendar, address book and pen from 1966

Guess how much I paid for all of these collectibles.
Come on, guess.

$6.00!!!!  Actually, I gave them a $10 bill and told them
to keep the change.  (I felt guilty for paying so little.) 

 My handsome man carried the box to the car!

 It was a wonderful afternoon filled with friendship, delicious food, delightful music, and incredible bargains.  What more could you ask?
