The Tao of treasure hunting

Treasure hunting requires a certain skill, first it takes an adventurous spirit, as one needs to hunt down treasure spots.  Second, one needs to be able to decipher junk from treasure, now this is an individual perspective to be sure but one becomes trained to edit out 'junk' from potential goodies after much practice.  Third, you need to be able to haggle.  The beauty of these places is the bargaining, there are no price tags and the more you buy the better the deal.  It probably helps to be a girl and have blond hair too....Fourth, you need stamina.  Fifth, a truck for hauling all the treasure.  Today I had the Vovlo and I couldn't buy the settee that was so sweet....
Sixth, cold hard cash.  Seventh, A good GPS.  Eighth, a sweet hook up for where to go.  Nineth, a place to put all your treasure.  And tenth, the crazy passion it takes to run around and dig through mounds and mounds of 'stuff'. But this hip chick can think of nothing better, it's hilariously my calling and I am thrilled to be able to do it for my 'job'......what a crack up! Thank you Sharon for the amazing cupcakes and for being my partner in crime on our escapade of many junk little time...
