1st Sale of the Year
A friend of mine from church is an avid G-sale-er and I have been bound and determined to go with her sometime. Well, earlier in the week I realized that I would be home this weekend and could actually go. I sent her a quick text to see if she was available and sure enough she was. We set a time and I excitedly waited for the day.
I scored at the first one we went to. Purchasing these two items that I really loved.
I think the snail is just too cute and I loved this tray that I think will go on my coffee table.
We hit an estate sale and I really didn't think I'd find anything that was "reasonable". I found this little number for $5. It goes perfect on this wash stand or whatever it's called. However, it still looks a bit drab...any ideas.
We had a few "misses" and drove in a few circles only to find ourselves back where we started. We happened upon a house whose lawn was that artificial stuff you put on porches...no joke...oh did we get a chuckle out of that one. Another house looked like they had spray painted "Garage Sale" on their garage but it was really a long piece of white butcher paper that matched the garage.
I found this cute bird house or whatever it is and because I was inspired by on some blogs (that I can't remember which ones at the moment). But I plan to paint it (either black or white) and put it somewhere in my house.
At another estate sale I found a really cute chalkboard mounted on a wrought iron stand that would be so cute for writing menus or placed outside a front entrance, but the price was very steep and the people weren't willing to budge.
For my first time out this year I'd say it was pretty successful. I even remembered to not feel like I had to buy something at every place I stopped and that it was okay to not buy something even though I kinda liked it. There will be many more sales down the road for me. I'm going to make my wish list.
With Joy UNquenchable,
