Hi. My name is Lydia and I'm a garage sale addict.

I love garage sales. I love the thrill of the hunt as I scout out the sales in my town; one eye open for movement in side streets, the other scouting for hand-lettered signs in neon colors. I'm fortunate that I haven't been in a wreck or been rear-ended making a sudden turn! The only accident so far has been the art glass swan that lost its head as I slammed on the brakes to avoid someone backing out of their driveway. (Fortunately I was paying attention that time or it would have been off to the repair shop for me!)
What I love even more than scouting for garage sales is the vintage/antique glass and silver I find at them. I thought I was alone in this interest (obsession really) until the day I stumbled onto Cass's blog at That Old House and discovered that I wasn't as alone as I had imagined. She and a host of others collect the same things I do and like me they are looking for bargains! I was in hog heaven and thus this blog is born. Please hang with me as I learn the intricacies of blogging and uploading pictures of my finds. Eventually I too will be participating in tablescapes so I can show off my finds.
