Great Garage Sale Day

I found a community garage sale not far from me last week.  I love these things because I get to hit more garage sales in one area at one time.  Here are some of the great things I found.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for books.  I see a lot of paperbacks at most garage sales, but at this particular sale, this lady had out some nice looking books.

I picked up the four classics for either myself or my daughter {my daughter took them}.

I bought the little red books for myself ~ Hans Christian Anderson Fairy Tales.  I love the bright red and their little size.

At this same house, I also found this blue key plaque {which I’ve already started painting}.  At another house, I found lots of linens and bought these two sets of napkins.

I bought this little guy at a house where I purchased a counter stool and a vanity stool.  I showed you the counter stool makeover here and I’m working on the vanity stool now.

I also got a little wood sled that is also in the midst of being painted and I hope to show that soon, too.  All in all, a fantastic garage sale day with beautiful weather {before the heat wave hit} and lots of great things to buy!

Great finds Kathy! Garage sales have been slow here because of the heat and rain - but I am hoping this weekend I will find some treasure since the weather has been beautiful the last few days here in Ontario!

What fun finds, Kathy! I always look for books, don't know how I'd style anything without them! :)

Great treasures. It has been way to hot to go to sales here. I love the linens and the books, gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

I don't blame you for picking up those red books I would have too. It looks like you got more lovely things from the yard sale too.

Happy Weekend!

Wow, you have had a great time at yard sales. I haven't been very lucky lately. I like those neighborhood sales, too, except for the traffic- it can be a nightmare navigating through the double parked cars!
