Left Behind at the Yard Sale


It was three weeks ago we visited several local yard sales, and in my last blog post I wrote how we did find a couple of interesting items. The only regret of the day was that Julie left one of her findings behind at one of the yard sales. She is now back in Ottawa and is kicking her butt for leaving these little novelties behind. This was a set of two syrup (or molasses) pitchers. It’s not that they are some valuable antiques, but just something that reminded us of when we were kids.    I believe they’re from the 1970s. Since this yard sale is in the nearby community of River bourgeois, I went back and found that the two pitchers were still there and set aside in case one of us would eventually go back to collect them. It was almost like finding a little treasure for a second time…
