Two weekends before Labor Day, while I was out and about running errands like a mad woman for two days, I surely made time to quickly stop at a few garage sales (about 3-4).
Boy did I find good prices and treasures!!!
It was surprising to find that on most of these sales just about everything was$1-$3...and it was on the first day of their sales!!! I think it was a way for the homeowners to quickly get rid of their stuff before summer is over.
So...let me show you my treasures which I have already found great places to be used in our home, and some for later use:
In the last year, I have been finding this type of miniature watercolor framed pictures. I simply find them fascinating and so pretty! ~ $1.00
Two small White Glass Hobnail vases...$1.00 each! I just couldn't believe it!!!
"YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE..." framed quote at a garage sale = $1.00. Excellent condition from Michaels.
A beautiful embroidered linen bread basket liner...not one stain!!!
Two very pretty heavy frames = $1.00 each.
A very well used and loved enameled coffee pot = $2.00!
Adorable old metal red gingham tray!
I finally found a wooden picture frame for this picture from last year.
I had been looking for this type of woven basket for the longest time. I did pay $3.00 for it, because I just had to have it! I thought it would be great to use it as my "cocktail bar tray"; but it was too wide for the counter where I wanted to place it.
A tissue box cover for the guest bedroom night stand = $1.00
Two trays of Christmas glass ornaments. I plan on decorating and donating them to our annual Christmas Church Bazaar.
For our Christmas tree.
Sheet music books for 25 cents each. I plan on using them for my altered art.
I couldn't pass this Beatrix Potter book for 25 cents. I plan on using it for an Easter vignette.
A "star" tablecloth for a table of 6 = $1.00. Oh so many uses!!!
A 3-tiered plate stand for $3.00. It came in very handy on Sunday's brunch get-together.
Brand new bag for a short weekend trip = $3.00, ...
and last but not least, this very pretty linen table runner in excellent condition = $1.00. Perfect for Easter season.
