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."
I cannot go a weekend without going to garage sales!
If I didn't go I would miss out on all this STUFF!!!
I was just wishing for a book display like this!! Then I found this one for $5. I can't wait to set it up in my daughter's room. For her 6th birthday in August we are redoing her room. So I am hiding this book organizer until then. I realized I can actually unscrew the dowels and remove the fabric and wash it!
8 Qt pot was $10 but offered $5 - YES
books $.50 each
Parcheesi, QuadOminos and 2 Scrabble games = $1 each
silver candle stick $.50
expandable ruler $.50
Disney picture frame $2
Captain figure $3 (This is a gift for someone who this reminds me of)
LRC (Left/Right/Center) dice game $2 My girls really like this game!
This was a great day. So happy with all the clothes and goodies!
This large frame is ADORABLE! It fits a photo size 24 x 16.
I love it! I can't decide where to put it. Maybe in my daughter's bedroom for her birthday
in the playroom with a photo of BOTH girls.
The circle frame $5 was from the same sale - a photographer selling her business. She said she usually sells that large frame for $300 to her clients!
My iPhone car charger just broke and I needed a new one. This new one was $5
Flip Video Ultra series camera (new/never used) and HP Photosmart A516 photo printer were marked $10 each but I got both for $15 total.
The photo printer is going to my dad for Father's Day. The Flip Video is going to my daughter for her birthday.
All the clothes were $.50 - $2 each.
I found the pink Pottery Barn lamp at Salvation Army. It was marked $6.99 and lamps were 25% off that day. Total = $5.25 We tested it before we bought it. It works! This is going in my daughter's birthday bedroom makeover.
We found this Loft Bed on Craigslist for her bedroom!
I can't wait for August to set it up!!
I hope to find more goodies this summer for her bedroom!
