I realized the other day I hadn't posted my finds from last weekend (July 25th), but since it was already Thursday at that point, I figured I'd just do one long post after this weekend's garage sales. So, here you go:
I took a lot of pictures of cute little houses on my walk on July 25th.
The first sale I basically only went to because I wanted to hit all the sales on my list, it was way out of the way of the other sales, but I also needed to get some more walking in, it gave me another mile to add to my total, so it worked.
The second one I found a few items to buy:
The next sale wasn't on my list, but I was walking right past it and it said artwork.
The next sale wasn't on my list, but I try to go to everything I see signs for.
This next sale had a ton of Beanie Babies, but I'm trying not to acquire more stuffed animals.
This fence is very cool, it looks like it's twisted and every time I walk by it, I always wonder how they constructed it.
This week, I ventured out to a few on Friday. I used to do that and plan to get back into doing it, but I've been lazy the past few weeks and haven't gone out on Fridays. I didn't walk that much, but I was so tired that afternoon at work, I felt like I was really dragging.
Saturday, I had a whole list of sales, and found quite a few things.
a box of ceramic butterfly coasters, a turtle hot pad, a glass elephant and some cute pins.
This sale was not on my list, but like I said, I try to stop by if the addresses are in my area. I didn't find anything for me, but my friend has been wanting one of these picnic basket things for awhile.
Another sale not on my list:
I was thinking how much I love walking to sales. I know some people couldn't do it with how their towns are set up, but I love that I can do it. I try to go different routes so I can see new things, I try to push my limits as far as I can. Sometimes that doesn't always work, generally I have to work on Saturdays, so I have to make sure I leave by 8AM and get back by 11 (hopefully earlier).
I used to just go to sales that had things in their descriptions that sounded interesting to me, but this year, I thought I'd just try to get to all the ones in my area. Sometimes I strike out, like the baby sale I went to this week thinking there might be some minion toys and found out it was all clothes. But I also might find something totally cool that they didn't put in the ad, or is in the free box.
Find anything cool at sales this weekend?
