I’m in the process of moving to Morgantown, home of West Virginia University and the Mountaineers for those unfamiliar with the area. Last night I was hanging out in my new apartment with my friend Ryan when I found out about the….
But, wait! Just what is this Blue & Gold Mine Sale? Well, according to the website:
“Students and community members donate good, usable items to sell to the public at large. Visit the sale for great bargains on wonderful treasures! All proceeds are donated to the United Way as part of WVU’s annual campaign.“
I couldn’t resist going and I’m glad I didn’t miss it! I went with Ryan and helped him decide on a mattress, and wandered around searching through books, clothes, kitchen items…you name it, it was there.
While there I bought
- Two Books: An Actor Prepares by Constantin Stanislavski and Why Do We Say It? The Stories Behind the Words, Expressions and Cliches We Use which doesn’t have an author listed
- A yellow bangle bracelet with elephants and deer/rabbit looking creatures on it
- A creamy white comfy cotton openish weave blanket
- And…a comfy pair of black moccasins
All together I paid a measly $4.25 for my treasures. I was pretty stoked! I have already worn the shoes today; they are so super comfy.
After the sale, I drove back to Fairmont and met up with Ava, one of my sisters, who kept me on task while packing up my apartment, which is always good because I’m am easily distracted…not to mention a pack rat (inherited from my mother, of course). So far the packing is going great, I can actually just load up boxes tomorrow and take some big furniture up to the new place.
