I actually got to hit some anyway

So today was going to be one of those days - so I thought. DH was off working which meant we weren't going into town garage saling. However, he did need me to go to the bank up the road so off I went just knowing I wouldn't find a garage sale out here since we live way out in the country. Surprised as I was, I found two.

The first garage sale I hit was one of those that kind of creeps me out a little. Instead of the woman being outside running it she was letting her husband run it for her. Sweet as he was, he was one of those guys that follows you around the whole time you're looking trying to talk you into buying stuff. For $3 I did purchase 3 things from this garage sale.



The next was right up the road in a vacant building. Two seperate families were holding this one so you had to go to one side of the building first and pay that family for what you got on that side - then go the other side and do the same. From the left side family we got all this plus a skateboard for DS for $8. Two of the pairs of shoes are brand new and lucky for me they were DD's size. So now that's one less pair of school shoes I have to buy. Here's DD showing off her buys.



From the right side family I was lucky enough to find these two Pyrex bowls for $1.25

Oh my, I totally understand the creepy yard sale! One of my finds was at the same kind, except there were 2 shirtless men running it!! :)

The red glassware was worth the creepiness though!

Thanks for visiting my blog and for playing with Rhoda :-)
I love the Pyrex bowl, so bright and cheerful. The hutch looks beautiful but they do become a catchall don't they?
Happy thrifting and I'm off to check out the rest of your treasures.
