Friday's Garage Sales

On Friday, the boys and I went out to garage sales with Amanda. The only thing Ethan wanted to find was Battleship. Amanda found it for him and it cost a whopping .25! It is missing one boat, but I am figuring that we will either play without it or try emailing the company about getting a replacement. The picture I had planned for the frame doesn't quite fit like I had hoped. I will have to find another picture!
A fun checked tablecloth for our picnic table sports some ric rac. "I Spy" puzzle for the boys $1. A book for me. A vintage linen and a cool pair of glittons or miloves. He he.

A lady at work mentioned on Thursday that she would like one of those backpacks with wheels. Done for $2 on Friday. Teaching Tiles for $1. A like new Buzz shirt for .50. A t shirt that I had planned for a gift .25 (although I have now found a little hole...poo!). Americana dishtowels for .10 each (2 never used). The owner was just "so happy to get rid of them". Farm dishtowel for 50 cents. Very cool bathroom picture for $2. I plan to paint the frame black to make the picture pop. There were 2 other similar pictures and now I wish I had picked them up. Also, a Doug and Melissa block puzzle that makes sounds when you match the right two pictures. This will be a Christmas gift for Leeland. It was $3.



Lots of sales this weekend. This month is full of community sales around here!

Good buys. We went to 1 church sale, it was the last hour so everything was half off. I got 3 books, Ryan got 2 toys and we got baked goods all for 2 bucks!!

Love the sexy ladies in the frame! It just hurts my neck to look at them for too long!

I was so bummed that we didn't see you on Saturday! I wonder if it was one of those things where we were walking in circles around eachother. Thought I saw you come out of the Methodist church once to put something in your van, so I yelled but you didn't hear me. Then, like a stalker, I followed you into the church and realized there was a meeting going on which I was too embarrassed to interrupt. Looks like we both had good shopping days though!

You might be able to resize the picture at one of the kiosks like at Walgreens.
