Freebie Friday: Straw Purse and Polka Dot Scarf

free scarf and purse

The thing about yard sales is that after sitting out in the hot sun (or miserable cold) all day, the sellers don’t want to haul their goods back into their houses. A couple of weeks ago I chanced to be walking through Parkdale at 3 o’clock on a Saturday afternoon during the annual Brockton Village community Yard Sale. I picked up this lovely straw bag to examine and the seller admonished me to “take it.” So I did.

A few steps later, I came across and admired this cute polka dot scarf. Again, it’s owner made me bring it home.

It might be my conversion to purging zealotry talking, but I get the feeling that folks in general have reached a sort of possession fatigue and are now aggressively forcing their things on others. But still, cute purse and scarf.
