Hi Everyone! My sincerest apologies for the lack of blog updates. Things have been very busy in Matt and Michelle land. I just got a new teaching job, which will start in a few weeks!!! Add in working on my thesis show and graduating, and we have been very distracted!

Matt and I have taken a bit of a break from estate sales in the South Bay because of a bad experience we had a few weeks ago. First we went to an amazing sale, but ONE woman came in and bought all of the mid century furniture to resell. And at another I was pushed by an elderly man who was trying to get to some maps. I feel like San Jose estate sales are all about reselling and making money, and not about treasure hunting. We're both tired of the rude behavior.

We have, however, enjoyed going to estate sales on the Peninsula because the crowd is a bit...higher class...and the items are as well (aka no baby stuff). Since I'll be working in that area now, it will be easier to visit these sales.

Since my last post we got two "80s does 50s" lawn chairs, a 60s lounge lawn chair, a late 60s armchair, and some fun records!

And, last but not least...

Because of my new job, I'll need to switch my wardrobe from Cindy Brady to Carol Brady. I'm selling a bunch of silly dresses on Etsy and Ebay in the next few weeks!

E-Bay Link!

And super last but not least...

I adopted the neighbors' cat when they moved!!! Hurray for Ashes!!!

Until next time...
