Hi all! Well, I’m having a much more productive day today. Staying up late last night to get some odds and ends finished helped a ton, and the girls were able to entertain themselves a bit this morning so I could cross a few more things off the list.
Do you love garage sale season as much as I do? I love it so very much. I just love the idea of finding something exciting among the rubble. And lucky for me, my girls don’t mind (too much) when I drag them around with me. I usually promise them donuts for the car ride and a trip to the playground afterwards. They always bring a little mad money with them, too, and we scour the sales for decent toys, games, and puzzles.
Since it’s Tuesday, I had planned to show you how I transformed a $5 armchair I found at one such sale a couple of weeks ago. Alas, the project isn’t turning out as I had hoped. I just can’t get it right. Maybe next week…
For now, I’ll share a handful of other goodies I found last weekend:
- Pretty Pottery
- First Love
- Old School Instagram
- Hot for Hobnail
I got all of this loot for about 7 bucks! If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be posting a couple more pictures of items I’ve drummed up at sales for cheap. I’m not sure how I’m going to transform them yet, but I just couldn’t pass ’em up. You’ll see…
I’m also super-happy to say that the above photos of my finds were taken with an iPhone and a homemade light box. I’m slowly but surely learning how to take better blogging photos, and I hope to pass on what I’ve learned in the next couple of weeks.
What great things have you found at sales this summer?
