I have been looking forward to today for at least a month. It was a neighboring town's city-wide garage sale. My friend and I have been going to it for a few years, so we have a standing date to do it every year.
When I was outside waiting for her, I saw the iris's are starting to pop open:
Bargain Hunter, she mentioned in her post yesterday a friend of hers rents vintage plates for wedding receptions. I think that would be pretty cool. My friend and I decided it would be fun to but old/worn out furniture and add dictionary pages or other things to easily brighten them up and then re sell them. There was a pair of end tables she really wanted to buy, spray with paint and give new life.
So, here's what I bought:
the scissors were free, the two necklaces are rocks each $1, and the velvet green bag was free.
Some other things on my list this year are:
buttons, mostly vintage but I'd go for new too
