So I quietly crawled out of bed so as to not awake Skyler and went out to the living room. I knew it would be a beautiful day and thought I'd do some garage sale-ing! I searched craigslist for some listings, jotted down the addresses and times and numbered the order of where to go first. I left by 7:30 - the sun was fully awake now and it was GLORIOUS outside! Spent a BEAUTIFUL morning wandering sales. Some were good and some I drove by and decided "nah". I went to my first estate sale!! Wow. Crazy. It started at 9 and I arrived at 8:50...and there were already 15 others there. By 9, there were THIRTY of us out there, waiting to go in! (I know, because I counted as each arrived...hehe). The doors were opened and we all filed in...all 30 of us. Into a tiny house barely bigger than my two bedroom apartment...which has had a max of 17 people in it at one time. I did find a few goodies, but mostly was disappointed with what seemed like overpriced items. Oh, and maybe because this person had collected wall decor masks, glass figurines, ugly Christmas decor and random other stuff that didn't even get a second glance....
But, overall I was pleased with my day! These are some of my goodies:
Birdcage from Estate Sale - $2
Outside light $4 (got an idea for this one...)
Lamp & Shade $6 (shade will get a make over soon)
3 Wreath Forms $1.50
I started working on some of these re-do's on Sat afternoon. Can't wait to finish working on them. :)
I love garage sales.
