First, this triptych was only $5.
The hat box was $1
Close-up of the duvet:
The frames were $1 each, and each sprig of leaves was $1 also.
Close-up of the frames:
We all three (me, mom, sister) got some shutters. I have big plans for the yellow one, and I'm sure the brown one will find a nice home also. These were $3 & $2.
Another rusty stool for our eventual basement bar - $10
Set of tables - $10
Wire basket was $5, the Pottery Barn tray was $.50 and the picture $1.
Some holiday decor - Santa was $2 and the ceramic snowman $5
Wood bowl - $.50, white/blue wood box - $2, wood birchy looking box - $.50
Nest - $.50, frame - $1, and the basket - let me tell you what the lady selling it told me. She said she watched a lady in the Bahamas gather the materials off of the beach and weave that basket right in front of her. So I expected her to tell me the price was higher than I'd want to pay because of the memory attached to it. Nope, she wanted $.50.
Copper pot - $1 or $2, can't remember
Metallic vases - $1 each
IKEA drawer dividers - $1 for all
Really cute SMALL purse for amusement parks or other little day trips (which I've actually been looking for lately) - $2. White watch was $1 and the tiny frame also $1.
We needed a new ironing board as our old one fit over a door and that doesn't work in this house. This one just needs a new cover so $3 was a great price for me! Those two rolls of wallpaper were free!
Two pairs of shoes for Charley - TOMS and Merrell's - $7 for them both
And finally, remember how badly Charley's wanted a bike lately? Found this one with the training wheels for just $3. She is THRILLED with it.
There were also a few books for Charley and a couple of cute toys for her too that I didn't take a picture of. I spent over $80 today which is insane for garage sales but I couldn't stop myself! Someone needs to report me to A&E or TLC or something. I don't know if I belong on My Strange Addiction or Hoarders or what.
Add that to all the stuff my mom and my sister got and it was one FULL car this morning. I am a little ashamed to show you this picture as some of you really might seek out help for us.
But the stuff was just too good to pass up! Honest! We made sure Charley had a little hole to breathe out of. She was totally fine. ;)
One more thing: I haven't really done anything with our master bedroom and the only notion of idea I had for the room was a general color scheme of coastal blues or greens. Hadn't narrowed it down at all. But after today's finds I'm ready to start on that room. So many of the things I got I'm using in the master bedroom - and the crazy part is each thing was found at a different garage sale. I couldn't believe how everything I found came together so well. Can't wait to start playing around with it all.
Are you a garage saler? Have I convinced anyone to give them a try yet or do you all value Saturday morning sleep too much?
