I did my first craft show this last weekend

I learned a lot from it, but the show had about 10 customers (that includes the kids that were with their parents.... And includes my cousins and their kids. Boy, was it slow!)

Here's my set up:

New Items

I made this set, the diaper cover/shorts are a made up pattern.

I really need to write it down so I don't forget it.

My husband is so impressed with me, he thinks I need to write patterns and sell them "or something" Its so empowering to hear when someone thinks your awesome. <3 him

We just had the most successful morning while visiting a few garage sales. 

I was looking on 'free stuff' on craigslist last night (because you never know when you might find something cool) and decided to head over to garage sales. I entered our zip code and found a few ones that seemed good.

The first garage sale
 was very.... 'kid-friendly' and we (by we, I mean Stone) scored BIG TIME. 

Specifically in the car department:

THIS IS FULL OF CARS, total for cars and case: $2.00 
You see, its FULL. (not pictured, a bag with more)
Boys shirts, some new with tags: $2.00

Like-new cleats and crocs: $1.00

Baby/Toddler educational DVDs = $0.50 (actually, free)
 TOTAL at 1st Garage sale: $5.00

The second Garage sale

I made a friend, she was a little sweet lady named Dorris and her daughter was Dotty. She said I was the only person who looked at the crochet books all day long, she was so happy that I was looking she said I could take any of the books for free.

A ton of crochet books -free ($0.00) and 7 doily's: $1.25 
Full Size bed frame: $0.50
 When we were leaving I saw a free item, I gave her all the change I had left.

Not pictured is an afghan that she gave me me when I came back to pick up the bed frame;

TOTAL for second garage sale: $1.75

The third garage sale

was the most expensive, but full of furniture and in the end a few free throw ins.

3/4 sanded side table: $15.00

Children desks from the 1800's (my Mom's buy, she needs them for home schooling, lol): $30.00
Vintage kid sized desk (my Mom's buy, another homeschool): $20.00

 TOTAL for the third garage sale: $65.00

With everything added, we could have furnished a on one of those old HGTV shows!
