I have been a fan of garage sales since I was a kid and realized I got lots more toys when my parents found them at garage sales and they didn't have to pay full price for them. Today my own son wanted to go to some garage sales. I have been avoiding garage sales this summer for two reasons.
Reason 1 I have been broke and even though garage sales are cheap I have been trying really hard not to spend.
Reason 2 My house is busting at the seams I need to clear out not add on.
But I promised my son, so we drove around our area looking for some signs (I did not look anything up on craigslist sometimes I like to be surprised). I found two great vintage garage sales and spend a grand total of $16. Not out that much money. But well more stuff. Oh well you can't win them all.
Ceramic Art Vases
Hand Embroidered and Cross Stitched Dresser Scarves, Vintage Gloves, Vintage Scarves
Alaska metal souvenir tray and small round table cloth.
Rhinestone Dress clips and confetti Lucite earrings with shells and a pin.
And finally this cute clear umbrella with pink and white polka dots.
There are also 2 sets of Asian figurines that I didn't get a close up picture of but they were a steal for $2 a set.
Best score of the day for me was the dress clips. I have have been really wanting a nice pair and these are lovely and well you can't beat the price 50 cents.
Do you garage sale? What was your best score.
