I had big plans to take part in a neighbourhood yard sale today. But it is pouring rain. So I slept in and am just gearing up for a day of work (and watching the US Open men's final) instead. I haven't taken photos yet of the things in the big box by the door, but I will for another post. Today I'll post some of the stuff I got rid of when Big Brothers Big Sisters phoned to ask if I had any household items to donate. I managed to put together a green garbage bag full. My husband and I were a bit slow in getting to our clothes closet, but the day before the pickup I found a big box of free kids clothes — in excellent condition — at the end of someone's driveway, so I pilfered the best togs and put them in my own bag for BB. It feels great when a pile of stuff goes out at once.

Gave this away today to someone who will use it. Brand new purse, bought at a yard sale not quite a year ago. Plastic still on the handles. I’m much more fond of my leather bags.
This leather has seen a lot of moola

St. Michael’s University School annual garage sale. I’ve only made it there twice; keep finding out about it after the date has passed. That’s what you get for reading community newspapers a few days after they arrive. This wallet cost me $1. I used it for almost 7 years. Then I found a gorgeous old light brown leather wallet, soft as butter. The one I use now and caress fondly. I was going to keep this as backup, but I’m sure if I ever need a new wallet, the Sally Ann will be there with a bin full of choices.
None the worse for wear

This is a teeny tiny purse. It’s about six inches long and four inches high. Did I think I was going to carry lipstick and a twenty in it? It barely holds my car keys. Snazzy orange lining though.
