Garage Sale Saturday

So DH excitedly got me up this morning and said "Let's hit 'em." I wasn't quite awake enough to get excited yet. So we hit a couple of sales where the prices were so high I'm really wondering if they wanted to sell their stuff. We also hit some great deals also. We hit an estate sale where a lady had went into a retirement home and her kids were selling her stuff. She had two storage locker full and me and DH got burnt out from digging through all the boxes. The stuff was marked high but one man said he was willing to make deals. So I talked him down on everything.

Pictured here

- Bench $8
- Birdcage $2
- Two lampshades and two white S&P shakers were a deal for $4
- Depression glass and bag with white S&P shakers - .50 cents
- Shredder $2
- Pretty box - $1
- Candle holders $2
- Basket $2
- Anchor Hocking Mixing bowl $1
- Chrome basket - .25

I almost paid $40 for a bench like that at Goodwill! I was going to recover it to use in my bedroom and also wanted to use it for photography. I went back to buy it and it was gone! You got a great deal! Thanks for stopping by!
