Yellow Springs

What a quaint town in Ohio! Lots of little shops sit along both sides of US 68, attracting young urban professionals. Even the trash cans are pleasantly decorated.

  
We went there for an estate sale. This kind of estate sale was a new experience for me. The agent listed the items online then had an open house today. Items were priced and on display in their natural surroundings so interested patrons could make purchases.  But tomorrow the items that didn’t sell will be discounted 30%. Then on Sunday and remaining items will be discounted further to 50% off. It becomes a game to find how much you are willing to pay to get the item. 

We didn’t stay too long because we didn’t fall in love with prices on the beautiful oriental pieces. We headed to the downtown area. There I found a great cup of coffee and a Tiffany style desk lamp decorated with dragonflies. It reminded me of our recent paintings that you can view in the picture from my  last post. I haven’t bought the lamp, but the weekend isn’t over.
