Pink Saturday 4/10



Pink Saturday

DD and I broke away from the guys the other day for some mother/daughter time. I had some stuff to drop off at Goodwill so we went in and took a peek. I didn't find anything, however, DD found a must have purchase for herself. How could I say no?



DD is into Barbie. Just when I think she's turning into a tomboy on me, climbing trees and such, out come the Barbie's. A girl after my own heart.

I did find something for myself - a solid wood desk. I would have loved to brought it home and sanded it down followed by a coat of white paint. However, $149 was way too steep for me. Goodwill can be ridiculous on their prices sometimes. Or maybe it's just me???

Tomorrow is a big community garage sale at a town about 10 minutes from where we live. This will be the 8th year they've had it and so far every year it's been great with lots of nice finds. Hopefully, I'll some interesting finds to share tomorrow evening.

Until next time. . .

Hello, Annabelle,
I am sure your daughter will enjoy her Barbie mug. I loved playing with Barbie as a young girl. Enjoy your time at the city garage sale, and I hope you find some great buys! Happy Pink Saturday to you! Vicki

That a sweet Barbie mug for DD and of course it is pink! GW sure is hit or miss. Sometimes you find great deals and other times you shake your head and wonder what they were thinking!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Good luck on your yard sales. I love thrifting and have enjoyed loking through your blog to see all of your finds.

It's so much fun to go out and get something useful and pay hardly anything.

My GW buys Target's and Pottery Barn's clearance and I just got a great lamp for 3.99 and other things. I'll be showing those next week.

I'll be following you to see all of your great deals and projects - love it!
Thanks!
LL

Sometimes kids really know how to score - some of my girls favorite things are from GW...sometimes they find me the best things at GW (they are at a better perspective, I think)...

GW pricing is weird sometimes it is really good and sometimes it is outlandish - I don't get it.
