First Weekend in June Sales

The Thrifty Groove

I'm also going to be joining Rhoda this week at Southern Hospitality

The first weekend of June and the garage sales were everywhere. Before I bought anything new this weekend I was determined to finish that nightstand I bought a few weeks ago for $10. Okay, maybe DH was a little more determined for me to finish it so he put me to work. :)

I took a screwdriver and pried all the leaves and vines off of the drawers then gave the whole thing a coat of Antique White. The handles also got a new look thanks to a can of black spray pain. I can't wait to find a new lamp to go with my new bedside table.

Saturday morning we had a long list of sales we wanted to visit. However, by 9:30 it had already gotten so hot outside many people were closing their garage sales down early. Thanks to the heat though I did manage to score some great buys. At one sale we were told everything is priced 25 cents. They were already starting to close their sale down and was trying to get rid of everything quickly. I managed to pick up three skirts at this sale.

I also found another sale with a large table full of ladies tops, most of them in my size, for only .50 each. I came away with a grocery bag full of new tops for summer, some with price tags still on them.

We only found one Estate Sale this morning and the house was packed full of stuff. My only purchase from this sale was this Cosco stool for $5. I have to say that I love Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. The top of this stool was brown and dingy and looked to have a few stains but after a little scrubbing with Mr. Clean it looks as good as new.

Some of my garage sale finds of the day . . .

I fell in love with this little purple piggy bank. It's missing it's stopper on the bottom but for .25 it makes a great decoration.

I thought the little reindeer on this were so cute. It has a battery compartment on the bottom and I can't wait to try it out and see what it does.

At two different sales I found this great purse and two DVD's - my total for all three - $3.

Hope you found some great buys this weekend.

Until next time . . .

Your Cosco stool is amazing. I love those things, but haven't found one in great shape yet.

Thanks for your visit. I have a similar stool that I painted a week or so ago on my previous post. Yours looks great. You had some really cute finds!
