A true "Picker" NEVER leaves the house unprepared. You can have all the fancy cars. I never leave the house in anything but my pickup. You never know when you may need to steer yourself right into a yardsale, flea market, or even something sitting out for the garbage. I have been disappointed a few times seeing a "treasure" that needed a home, and no way to haul it. Believe me, someone else will grab it if you don't! So forget the little sport car, and truck around. You will be glad you did! :-)
A beautiful find at a newly opened local Thrift Store. A vintage Germany Cake Stand. Numbered and Signed. I purchased this beauty and sold it within 3 days! Always dig...that is when you will find the perfect Treasure to snatch up! I never make "quick" visits. I have to feel, touch, inspect and usually I find the perfect buy tucked away where it is not readily visible to other shoppers who simply don't take their time. Never rush...make it a mission!!!!!
One of my favorite of all time finds was this Panama Jack Cruiser Bicycle...all decked out with wood grain trim!! I found the little basket on the handle bars at a yard sale...The bicycle was found at a Pawn Shop in Florida. Total price for this set of wheels...$50.00! No rust, new tires and the wood grain is to die for..As soon as Spring returns...this girl is CRUISIN' !!
