ROAD TRIP and MY SUPER YARD SALE FIND!

It's been awhile since I have been back to my home state OHIO for some serious junk huntin and time with family and friends! The past few visits have been super short with not enough time.....(there really is never enough time to get it all in.) SOOOO, I will be turnin the Buckeye state inside out to get a primo truckload of junk!! I'll be gone all week so don't think I forgot ya! The shop will be open while I am gone! Between my girl Kim and Mr. OTM the doors will be OPEN!!
Okay...so yesterday morning Mr. OTM gets up at 6 and wants to know if I wanted to hit the pav for some yard sales. Ugh...that moment of deciding to stay in bed for just a few more OR the thought of snagging something awesome can be torture! The junk thoughts usually win the war and thus we headed out bright and early!
Whoa Nelly did we find a dandy! Check out what I found as soon as we walked into this first sale.....
I spazzed OUT! Now, I realize that the two tall ones aren't old but I was NOT going to pass them up. The smaller one however is vintage. These will look awesome in the booth! It is so hard to find mannequins that don't cost an arm and a leg. (does anybody get that?? arm and leg...mannequins...??? hello? anybody? it's kinda funny right? ) Ahem...anyway it was amuzing watching Mr. OTM carry them out of the place.


So, I am leaving you with this FAB FIND and will be loadin up on pics while I am gone of what is hopefully going to be a fruitful , fun filled, junk buying frenzy!!
See ya when I get back!
