Down the Garden Path

DOWN THE GARDEN PATH
(An occasional sale of unusual curiosities)
111 S. 22nd St., La Crosse, Wis.

Thursday, Oct. 3, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 4, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 5,  from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

It’s time to wander down the garden path again, but be careful you don’t stumble over a funnel planted with mums, a  laundry tub full of geraniums, or a  chicken feeder that’s spilling over with stonecrop. Vintage table cloths will be flapping in the breeze, and the jack-o’-lanterns will be getting up to all kinds of mischief. There will be angels, Santas,snowmen and boxes full of vintage glass ornaments. We’ve got enamelware, tables of every size and shape and even one that features a map of Europe. We’ve got glassware, kitchenalia, rusty primitives, a couple of trunks and lots of metal buckets. We’ve got jars of thread and buttons and other sewing paraphernalia. You can pack one of our bags with all your treasures because we’ve also got vintage suitcases. Find a dresser scarf, a bandana or an old-fashioned hanky. If you’ve imagined it, you’ll likely find it here.

And if you haven’t imagined it, we probably have that, too.

I am being strong and resisting one last auction today simply because the house, the garage and the yard are bursting at the seams and I’ve got to stop acquiring and start merchandising.

Oh, if I had house enough to keep it all, I would. But my modest abode is bursting at the seams so this stuff has to go. I’m hoping your houses are just a tad bit less crowded than mine and you can make room for some of these treasures.

How crowded is my house? I haven’t even pulled out my Halloween decorations yet because I have so much stuff I have to clear out. And I usually get my Halloween decorations up at the end of August.

.So stop raking leaves and hop in the car. We’re waiting for you on 22nd Street.
