So I know a lot of you have wondered did we make it to the garage sales or did the rain get us? Thankfully, the rain has held off long enough that we did get to make it out this morning. There were not many sales though due to the threat of impending bad weather.
The first sale we stopped at this morning had tables full of baby clothes. Since I have no babies anymore on down the road we went. On the outskirts of the city there were a couple garage sales. The first one I stopped at didn't have much on the outside but I decided to get out and give it a glance anyway. When I got out of the car a little black poodle ran at me carrying on quite a commotion. I wasn't sure if it was going to bite me but when I realized that it was all bark and no bite I got quite a laugh at it's boldness. At this sale I did find one thing.
This purse cost me $1.
At the next garage sale there were two adorable little Shih-tzu puppies. Growing up we owned a Shih-tzu named Fifi and seeing this lady's two babies brought back a lot of memories. From this garage sale I purchased two things.
I took a chance on this purple tablecloth. It was wrapped in plastic and you couldn't really size it up or see it too good. For $1 I figured it was worth taking the chance.
Also I found this little side table for $5. I'm going to give it a good coat of white paint and also DH is going to trim the bottom (about 1/2 inch) of the legs off a little due to some bad damage.
Next we went into the city to a few garage sales. Unfortunately, it was mostly a lot of baby stuff. I did, however, find this pair of shoes at one garage sales. Unfortunately, I need to start trying shoes on before purchase. They were marked 9 but when I got home and tried them on they felt more like a size 8. Oh well, for $1.50 I wasn't out much money and I'm sure I can find someone in the family they'll fit. They were brand new, never worn.
Until next time . . .
