I know it's going to be a good weekend when I get an email on Friday from Sam & Mary announcing they are having another estate sale!
Can you see why I look forward to seeing them?
Aren't they adorable?
Their sales bring me to some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the East Bay.
This weekend was no exception.
It was a rather small sale contained to just a few rooms but we managed to find a few treasures.
I love treasure hunting with my best friends...
Here are my Mom and Mary tallying up our treasures.
Back in Alameda, we cruised town looking for garage sales.
I stopped to take a photo of this memorial that is tucked into a rock wall in a center divide in one of Alameda's Gold Coast neighborhoods. My Mom who has lived here over 70 years had never noticed it before!
This pooch was patiently waiting for his owners to return with their garage sale scores. His owner built this unique vehicle which I see occasionally tooling around town.
I scored these vintage spit bamboo fishing rods from the 1920's.
The best find of the weekend though was this new eatery that just opened in town.
I think my husband's expression says it all!
It really is that good!!!!
We're going back today for the crispy hot dog!
