I seem to always find the best stuff when I'm not looking. This particular morning I was not planning on garage sailing (not sure if that's a verb or not yet but I'm making it one). I was driving home from my parents house when I passed a few garage sale signs in front of a neighborhood (they shouldn't let me drive during garage sale season..I can't tell you how many time I've swerved into the turn lane last minute to turn into a neighborhood...)
The sign read "neighborhood garage sale." Music to my soul.
The only issue was that I didn't have much cash and my trunk was full of other nonsense. After a short 15 minutes I was cold out of cash and struggling to fit two chairs into the backseat of my tiny car. It took a good 10 minutes but I prevailed. When there's a will, there's a way.
antique lamp - $4
this is gong to in my "closet" room which will be decked out in white, gold, silver, and crystal by the time I'm done with it
This thing - free
Not sure what this is or what I will do with it. I was looking at it because I thought it was kinda cool and the lady said, "I'll throw that in if you buy the chair." I was already planning on buying the chair so I didn't complain. (She must have really wanted to get rid of stuff). A part of me thinks this is really ugly and part of methinks it's really cool. I may hang it in the basement...considered even spraying painting it all white to give it a little bit of an abstract appeal...What do you think? Or is it junk?
Little suitcase - $2
Love the inside. I think I will use it to store and organize some of my sewing tools.
A good haul, but I left disappointed because I had to surpass a few items I had my eye on because my car was filled to the brim and I had no cash.
TAKE NOTE- empty out your car and always carry cash.
Have a beautiful day,
