Today, Beth and I went to Rise Photography‘s backyard vintage sale (which is still going on if you are reading this before 5pm on October ninth!). They’ve had these vintage sales before, but they always happen to be on days when I’m working, so I was happy to go shop and hang out with cool folks like Mandy and Diane and Hannah. Beth and I also checked out the bicycle tire taxidermy exhibit inside the gallery. All kinds of great stuff is happening there today!
When we first showed up, Mandy was trying on a gorgeous dress that fit her perfectly. I neglected to take a picture, but I did tell her that if she didn’t buy it, I would THROW UP.
I tried on some glasses:
Beth has a friend who collects Jesusy items, so after we tried on clothes, she went to the register to ask if the lights still worked on Jesus. A woman went with Beth to look at Light-Up Jesus, and he was GONE! Horrors! Beth turned around and saw a guy holding Light-Up Jesus– her Light-Up Jesus!
“Oh, no! Are you buying that?” Beth asked, in a totally normal, not rude way.
“Uh, I was planning on it,” sneered the Jesus thief. I realize that we never should have left such a find unattended, but we were at the register for literally thirty seconds, and nobody had even looked at Light-Up Jesus all morning! Anyway, maybe the Jesus thief didn’t mean to be rude, and was just trying to hold on to a coveted item, but he and his girlfriend clutched Light-Up Jesus protectively as Beth mourned the loss of sacred vintage decor.
Beth also tried on a cat coat:
Then I tried on a lovely outfit, and took a lousy picture of it:
The green shoes were only twelve bucks and they were my size, and I DIDN’T BUY THEM because there was stuff there I wanted EVEN MORE than stylish, comfortable shoes in my favorite color. That’s how cool it was.
There was even an adorable, well-behaved cat on a leash!
