treasure hunting | the both and | shorts and longs | julie rybarczykYou never know where you’re gonna find the good stuff.

Like tonight. There I was just finishing up dinner with R-kids, and this amazing conversation started. It took me a minute to realize we were having it, and then I just held on and enjoyed the ride. Even better, the same conversation came back again as I was tucking R-boy into bed. Next thing I knew, we were all three snuggled together on R-boy’s bed and talking, for like a whole 20 minutes. Maybe even 30. About really cool and important stuff.

Now that’s a treasure, and we stumbled upon it—being in the right place at the right time and all.

Like I said, you never know where you’re gonna find the good stuff.

But wait. Actually…sometimes you do.

Like this weekend—in Buffalo, Minnesota—at our favorite occasional sales—like Secondhand Rose and Patina General. That’s where you can be sure you’ll find the good stuff.

And that’s where you’ll find me.

Wanna come?!

No, really. You. Yes, you!!

The girls and I are going, and we’re rounding up a crowd. It’s Secondhand Rose’s second-to-last month (moment of silence, please) and the second-to-last month of the year and it is hunting season and all (so I’ve heard), and… Oh who needs a reason. Seriously. The more the merrier!!

Let’s go find some really great junk!

Here’s the plan: Meet us at Starbucks at Hwy 55 and Northwest Blvd in Plymouth (Minnesota, that is) at noon on Saturday. We’ll all grab our beverage of choice, and caravan out from there.

Hunting weekend it is. Who’s in?
