Yes, I am addicted to garage sales. I check the classifieds online and make a map of the sales I want to hit EVERY week. It may be the THRILL of finding unique items or getting a GREAT deal on something I just have to have!!
I have been COLLECTING things for many years now and I want to share this "addiction".
"It's not the things you buy that you regret. It's the things you don't buy."
These last 2 weeks have been BUSY!
This is what I bought in the last 2 weekends of garage sales (since we have returned from the 127 sale).
I kept all of this in my car and just kept adding to it until I was able to pull it out and sort it all. And today was the lucky day!
School clothes. Puzzles. Snow cone machine $3.
White bench $7 that I want to paint and use for my dining room table!
Pink snow pants $1. wooden Pepsi crate $5.
Michigan license plate 50¢. Gumball machine $1.
White tablecloth $1. Red polka dot rain boots $1.
Close to My Heart stamp sets $1 each. Brand New - Pottery Barn red bean bag cover $10.
3 adorable Halloween plates. Snowman cookie jar $1.
2 Brand New -Pottery Barn pillow shams $5 each. 2 comforters $6 total.
Bella Dancerella Cheerleader DVD and mat 75¢. Magnet fun game $1.
DVD movies $1 each. 2 different houses were selling their DVD collections for $1 each.
I bought all 3 Pirates of the Caribbean DVDs for $3 total. The retail sticker showed $24.95 each.
Cars. Shrek 1 and 2. Finding Nemo. No Strings Attached. (I think that was just released this year)
All of this was in my SUV!
All of THIS + PLUS this bike!
This Trek bicycle was $30. The sweet girl who used to love this beautiful pink ride was so excited to have that $30 in her hands. She told me "it even comes with the bell". So cute!
I have to hide this in the basement and save this for my daughter's birthday.
I have never seen this vintage game before. NUMBLE
It's like Scrabble but the tiles have numbers instead of letters!
They were selling 2 sets of this game. One set has never been opened!
I love these Pottery Barn school picture frames!
There is an opening for each school year. Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Perfect timing. I have one 1st grader and one in preschool.
These frames were $8 each.
Whew...now my car is cleared out and I can start all over this weekend!
