I have not typically been a huge yard sale-r. It takes a few things that I don’t have – the desire to get up early, directional skills and the time to spend going to garage sales. However, I may have changed my tune.
The last two Saturdays, I got up and went to yard sales on Saturday morning. One weekend, I went with friends. Another weekend, I went solo.
And, while I certainly didn’t find tons of things, I did find a few gems.
I think some of you may be jealous of my favorite find.
It’s a fun, aqua, vintage fan. For $2. It was my first find of the day last Saturday.
It’s perfect in the kitchen, which tends to be the hottest room in the house. It works like a dream, and really goes with the new wall color and the table runner. It has a few spots on the base, but otherwise looks like new. I adore it.
I’ve also picked up:
- an IKEA Lack Shelf (which matches the two I already have in the office) for $2.
- a pair of brand new black sling-backs in my size for $3. (This was just crazy-perfect because they were literally the EXACT pair of shoes I already had and loved, but mine had a busted heel. And, they were discontinued so I couldn’t order another pair. What are the odds?)
- Several cases of nearly-new, quart canning jars (for my canning adventures) for $6.
- A fully-decorated 36-inch Christmas wreath for $7.
