The Easter Bunny Needs To Wear Boots With Traction Before Going Antique Picking

Antique Dealers with Frostbite

The problem with a cold and long winter is that the Antique shops and Multi-Dealer stores in colder climates are picked over for longer than usual. Dealers in these shops are known to rely on goods from outdoor sales and markets. You just can't set up a tag sale or garage sale on icy patches and left over snow on your driveway.

Out Antiquing: Looking For Some Good Egg Deals 

Antique pickers are not the only ones I am concerned about. For example,  I hope that the Easter bunny wears boots with traction when out there looking for some good egg deals because it is going to be a mightly slippery holiday.

Weeds Are Freezing Their Buds Off 

Usually by this time of the year, my mailbox is stuffed with companies trying to sell me crab grass control packages. Not this year.....the weeds are staying underground...they are freezing their buds off.

Stay Warm On I Antique

There are however a couple of enjoyable activities compulsive junkers can do during this long winter. You can head over to my social network called I Antique and enjoy the company of others. After that... say hello to the great people who are regulars on  our Facebook page .  Be sure to "LIKE" our warms my heart on these cold days!
