Boy, was I disappointed when I didn't find a single thing to buy there! But I learned a good garage sale lesson, when sellers are charged $10 to set up a table, they tend to overprice their stuff! I won't be going to that sale again, lots of stuff but nothing to buy.
However, I did hit the jackpot going to individual sales from around the neighborhood. I got the best buys I've found all season and it definitely made up for the disappointing indoor sale.
First, I bought this mountain bike from a neighbor for just $10. It has some scrapes here and there, but since I know that I'll realistically only ride it a few times a year, it's perfect for $10.
At the next garage sale I found this cute chef basket for 50 cents. I think it can be used as a little bread basket, but instead I plan to use it as a place to drop my phone, sunglasses, and other miscellenouse things in the kitchen rather than messing up the kitchen counter.
At the same garage sale, I found a 8x10 version of a photo frame I already have. For 50 cents it was a great deal! She also had a box of free stuff where I picked up a pair of binoculars and a frisbee. All this stuff for just $1!
I also picked up 2 books at other garage sales, but my biggest find was at the last yard sale we went to. For just $4 I picked up this solid wood table. Yes, this very ugly old table. Why am I excited about it? Because it's just the size I need and I already have a plan in the works to transform this outdated table into something fresh and new. Stay tuned!
You did good! I know, I hate when I don't find stuff at big sales. That is quite an ugly table, but I know it has some potential, so can't wait to see it all done. Thanks for joining the party!
That table has a lot of potential and for only $4.00 it was a great buy. Look forward to seeing the transformation!
I CANNOT wait to see what you do with the table. I can totally see potential in it for SURE!!
Be sure to post pictures of the tabel when you are done.
It definitely has potential.
I love your finds - $41 bucks for a solid wood table is a steal , can hardly wait to see it all fresh and new !
I love your chef basket. ..
You did good! Can't wait to see the table transformed.
