Weekend Recap: Cincinnati Yard Sale

Wasn't the weather this weekend absolutely gorgeous?? All I wanted to do was go outside and plant flowers or something. Too bad I have neither a yard, or flowers to plant...BUT that did not dampen my excitement for sunshine and nature. My allergies may disagree, but it was still a fantastic weekend. 
Eric was out of town for most of it unfortunately, he was in a golf tournament, so I was flying solo this time. I may have been a little too excited to have a few days to myself (don't tell Eric) but by Sunday I was definitely missing the hubs. 
So what did I do this weekend just filled with "Beth" time? I went shopping of course!!!! 
This weekend was the 103.5 WGRR Cincinnati Yard Sale out at the new Beach Waterpark. Anyone who wanted to sell items paid for a table (that money went to charity) and then they could sell anything they wanted. There were also food trucks, music, and Newtown Farm Market selling fresh produce and flowers. 

It was a hoot! So many random items to look through, I was so excited. "One man's junk is another man's treasure" was the motto of the day and boy were both junk and treasure represented. 

I also spotted Queen Janeen! I listen to her and her husband Chris every morning. This is my sly "I'm a complete stalker taking a pic with my phone" moment. 

 Bellow are my spoils from the day. Being the dish addict that I am, I was beyond pumped when I found this beautiful white tray for only $8! And that round mirror was only $5, I think I'm going to spray paint it yellow. 

 Another fun little outing I went on this weekend was to the park with some girls from my gym. We climbed all over the monkey bars and may have gotten some funny looks, but it was so worth it :) 


So do you like yard sales as much as I do? The idea of turning an old piece of nothing into something special is fascinating to me. 
There is so much fun in the hunt, I just love it!
