Garage Sale Goodness

When hubby is away, wife may say...this would be a great garage sale day!

Hubby is gone fishing with the guys this weekend so I took the opportunity to hit a few garage sales this morning.
After leaving a note for my teenagers,who were still in bed... 

we headed out to pick up a friend and her daughter.

The first garage sale we went too was in an old shed on a beautiful property...
of course I don't have any pictures because I wasn't really thinking about making a blog post yet...:(
anyway; it was picture perfect, garage sale idealism......imagination required....:)

checking out another one...an observation I've made over the years is that some of the best garage sales are the nondescript ones...

then we checked out a big community one...They were raising money for cancer research...I thought this gorgeous quilt on the side of a truck was worthy of a shot....

"this is so much fun,' says Sommer on the gliding exercise machine.....

                         this one was all hanging baskets...WoW...
                   but I have enough I tell myself resolutely.....

                              back home...with a few sweet treasures...

sometimes the best finds are plain and utilitarian.......hence the cheer that I did when I saw this filter for my vacuum cleaner.....( these things are fifty dollars when new) I lost my spare one last summer after setting it out to dry....(thinking it blew away)

                                              a new egg basket and such....
                                             a handsome addition to my kitchen...

             Well that is all for today...but you know what they say....
            there's nothing like the thrill of the hunt..........to be continued....

How about you, are garage sales your thing?
 or are you a thanks but no thanks type.......?


  1. Looks like you did well! I would have been excited about the filter, too! Saving money is always a good thing.

    I go to garage sales but not very frequently. Maybe because we live in the country and they are a bit harder to find?

    Thanks so much for joining in this week.


  2. Looks like you did well and both of you had fun as well! ;)
    I see a fan there...my hubby found a couple the last time he went alone while I worked. They are coming in handy now!
    So happy you found some treasures!
    I'm off this weekend, but didn't go this time. I had to go to the groomers with one of our five doggies ;) They are all groomed now! Yeah (shout of joy!) Lol
    Getting ready for church this evening...and bringing a little sweetie with me who loves to raise her hand up in praise during worship time. (she's 3 yrs old) So cute! ...bless you my friend!

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxo

  3. I am loving that chicken. Would love to have one like that in my kitchen. Glad you found it among the other goodies.



  4. I used to like garage sale-ing more than I do now. Now I rarely have the time for it, our weekend schedules are so full. And I am trying to get rid of things, not accumulate them. However. I did pick up a nice little serving tray at a garage sale the other day. // I love that rooster!! Nice find. xo, ab


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
