Pickin' Coastal Style...Seaside, Florida

While going out pickin', is there a better place to go than the beach? I can only think of one better place and that would be a wonderful midwest farm. A pickin' trip in the midwest area is on my bucket list..oh I sure hope it comes soon, while I'm still just a wee bit young (ha ha). This trip was all about COASTAL CHARM, so Mr.CC and I headed over to Seaside for their community yard sale. This was our first time to attend this large sale and I can say, we will be coming back again. We got there fairly early and it really paid off at one spot, I loaded up with just about every vintage item that she had. This lady was giving me wonderful deals on her stuff and she had some really "cool" items...oh happy day! When Mr.CC found me there (after parking the car) and saw my pile of goodies, that look on his face was PRICELESS!! Honey...did you forget that we didn't bring the trailer? Oh sweetie, I know you can work some magic and get all of this in my (small) SUV. Just let me say, this man is one awesome packer when it comes to making all my junk treasures fit in my car...a real keeper! Today, I'm sharing some pics of the sale and the town of Seaside, come on back on Monday to my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY PARTY, where I will share with ya some of my goodies.
                                   Thanks for coming and I
                                  hope to see ya at the party,
                        We have been having a wonderful mild
                       winter this year, but not today, cold and

                            Charming little town of Seaside, Florida.
                    Throw on your coat...scarf and boots and
                                    get to shopping!
                      There was a little bit of everything there.
                     The local shops had merchandise at deep
                                       discounted prices.
                              These Airstream trailers add a touch
                                    of VINTAGE CHARM!
                                   Cute little
                                       didn't buy this one.

                       You could find antiques at one table and
                        next one would have new ladies clothing.
                                     Seaside neighborhood.
                          There small school is so darn
                            the stained glass windows at the top.
