Camelot is a neighborhood where many of the homes in that community join in with the other neighbors and have a big yard sale at each of their residence. It's like going trick or treating in the spring but the bummer is, when you've hit the last house, you kind of wish the fun didn't have to end.
And like Halloween, it only happens once a year.
And everyone that comes to the big Camelot sale usually are smart enough to bring their wagons.
Wagons of all shapes and sizes or their big shopping bags, their strollers, their carts, backpacks or whatever they can find to hold their treasures! I even seen some with luggage with wheels.
And then there are the ones I call the lazy peole that drive and stop and drive and stop. The walking is the fun part, you get your exercise while you are having fun!
At the big camelot sale, the cars are parked everywhere and highway 2 is usually lined with them too. There are a few porta potties scattered about but not enough, if you know what I mean. Sometimes there are long lines, aghhhh!
Camelot neighborhood puts on this big sale annually and usually falls after Easter and before Mother's Day.
They usually have signs up for exact dates and sometimes it's posted on Craig's list.
This year, there were 6 of us from our First Baptist Church in Deer Park, that went. We met at Frank's diner for breakfast and then after our bellies were full, we hit the sales. I think Jackie was first out the door. There was no stopping her!
And the weather couldn't have been better. It was a little chilly at first. We were trying to stay out of the shade and get into the sun. But before long, it warmed up nicely.
I think it will go nicely in the guest room.
My favorite are the handles that are so ornate! Can't wait to refurbish this beauty.
I found this old lunchbox that reminded me of my Dad when he was a truck driver. I remember visiting my parent's and my Dad coming home from work and putting his lunch pail, like this one, on the counter. I can still smell the dinner cooking on the stove and my Dad smelling like a truck driver.
As a seamstress, I love to find the bargains for my sewing projects too.
And I found a great bargain in this tote full of buttons and embroidery floss.
There are some beautiful buttons in here and for $10 for the whole lot, I think I did very well!
Not only did we enjoy the sales but we enjoyed some of the beautiful yards! This one still had their Easter decor up of the 3 wooden crosses. Loved it!
that really make you appreciate the beauty of colors.
Some people sure do know how to landscape. And some know how to use landscaping as an art
like taking an old boot and using it as a planter. Gonna do this one for sure!
not realizing that behind them was my favorite type of truck....
the old Ford pickup! (gotta get me one of these someday)
We had fun laughing, finding great bargains and left with some great deals.
Of course we worked up an appetite so naturally had to stop and eat some dinner.
Hope to see you next year at the big Camelot sale!
And don't forget your wagon!
