Sandy Hill garage sale

The morning started out sunny and warm but by 11 am it was drizzling
and getting cooler. Plenty of time though to get some much needed stuff like
this bag of old jewelry. Joanne an ASH volunteer, who's sporting classic
plastic sunglasses and a jaunty straw hat from Value Village has been manning the costume jewelry table now for years!
