Garages Sales 5/8

Today we were up and out early trying to hit all the garage sales on a list I had made yesterday. There were over 20 on the list though and some we just had to skip. Here are some of today's highlights.



Our second stop this morning was at an estate sale. The prices were great, not high at all. I found an oil painting I fell in love with to find out it had already been sold for $10. Sniff. However, I did find this great antique looking bowl for $3 and this set of flower petal bowls for $5. The pink poodle bank came from another sale down the road and cost $2.



After we left the estate sale we went down the street where I found all this. I've been wanting something to hang from my bathroom wall cabinet that I shared in an earlier post. These cats and heart should do the job. They cost .50. I fell in love with these dragonfly glasses and this table runner will work great this next Christmas.




At another garage sale later I came across these Santa's with Mrs. Claus. The trio only cost $1.



I also came across these books and DVD's. Not pictured is Charlotte's Web 1 (it's presently in the car DVD player being enjoyed by DS & DD). The Southern Living cookbooks were .50 each. The HeeHaw DVD's were $1 each and never opened and the two Charlotte's Webs were $2 each and the other DVD was .75. They all came from various garage sales.




I found this nice jacket at one sale today for $5. A little more than I usually like to spend but I like having nice coats for church and figured this one was worth it.

I got a kick out of one gentleman at a sale being given by him and his wife today. He kept following me around trying to get me to buy something. His last effort was in trying to get me to buy some of her clothes she had for sale. I politely told him I definitely would have if I were only a size 2 which was all he had for sale. Unfortunately, I haven't seen a size 2 in my closet since my Junior High days. LOL.

Not shown is a stack of children's books given to DS & DD by two ladies hosting a garage sale together. They said they were ready to call it a day already at 9:30 a.m. and was willing to start giving stuff away free just to get rid of it. Also DS & DD at another garage sale picked up a diva door hanger and a puppy notebook with google eyes. DD also picked up the craziest hat at one sale and DH decided to give everyone in town something to laugh at by modeling it.

Overall it was a pretty good day with lots of great stories to tell and treasures to show off.

Until next time . . .

Gotta love free stuff. I don't always mind taking the kids with me b/c they up the cuteness factor and usually come home with something free. ;)

You found some great things. I love the poodle and the dish that is in that same picture. Really nice. Do you find when you go to yard sales with your kids, that people holding the sales give them things? My grandkids clean up while doing the yard sale things. People are so nice to the children. lol

I find that I get free stuff when the kids get out - they just have that cuteness factor about them LOL
