I'm so excited because I'm headed down to NY this weekend to visit my folks and just saw on Decorno's post from yesterday that the the mother of all yard sales is tomorrow. The Domino Tastemakers Tag Sale should be a fun mob scene, even if I leave empty handed it should make for good people watching. Yay, finally in the right place at the right time.
