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 room....like on one of those old HGTV shows!
