I am back baby - from Vegas and Southern California

I haven't purposely been blog-lazy - but I will partly blame it on vacation. I just returned to Maryland this morning from Southern California with my entourage. We were gone a week and a half and part of that was spent in Las Vegas.

I got to see my boyfriend Drew Lachey again in Las Vegas. And had fun partying with the folks from Storage Wars - Dave Hester, Nabila Haniss, and auctioneers Dan and Laura. And a trip wouldn't be complete unless of course I popped into the Now and Then Thrift Store to do some shopping. While there, I got to met Jarrod.

more later,

Just a quick note to let you know that is in the July 2 issue of Woman's World magazine (usually seen at supermarket checkouts) - page 23.

Easy way to haggle (for those who hate haggling) and Bret Michaels tease

There weren't many yardsales in my area yesterday so instead I went to the county fairgrounds - which turns into a Saturday-only flea market. My fav find of the day was the above lighter (for .75). That's another great thing about yardsales, you see stuff you never knew existed. The flame comes out of the tip of the middle finger. I could tell you what the inscription on the ring says, but I like to keep this blog family friendly ;)

Anyhow as I was walking around browsing the various vendors, twice I had a seller lower the price on something, without me saying a word. I would pick something up that I wanted - asked the price - and then after hearing the price I set it back down. Two different sellers were quick to offer a lower price than the price they just told me. I'm going to start doing that at every yardsale (where stuff doesn't have a price already marked) and see how I do. Of course I wouldn't do that when another customer is nearby hovering - just waiting for me to set something back down - but it may be something to try at uncrowded yardsales.

In case you didn't recognize me with Bret Michaels in my previous post, here's a pic that will make it easy for you to spot me amongst the commoners.

I will post some more pics of Bret, but until then, here's just a few (stay tuned for more)
