This past weekend seemed to go on forever. Probably because I took Friday off. My mom came down and we hung out and and ate pizza. It's ok because it was the weekend... that's a good excuse to eat horribly right? I got to show her my craft table and she was highly impressed.
Saturday morning, Dustin and I woke up early to get our garage sale hopping started! I always scope out the best ones in the newspaper first.... I've even gone as far as making maps on Google with all of the points of interest pinned. Sure saves time driving around looking for some ;). This time though, we just headed over to the one that immediately caught my eye... the ad said it had "craft supplies", need I say more?
When we got there, there were two happening beside each other. The first place had some pretty nice furniture and this amazing antique looking floor lamp. It caught my eye but I was sure they were going to want at least $20 for it. That's when I saw the jaw-dropping $2 price tag attached to it. WHAT?! Mine!
Then, we headed next door. I saw a table full of unused fabrics and am pretty sure I squealed with excitement. I started picking through it all, putting aside the ones I wanted. The woman hosting the sale brought me a box and I offered her $5 for whatever I could stuff into it. I knew in my mind I was totally lowballing her because these were definitely worth more than $5, but she looked at me like I was crazy and said "Oh no dear... One dollar." !!!!!! I was like "What? are you sure?!" and she was... but I felt bad so I gave her $3 instead haha. She then told me to take it all. ALL OF IT?! I was shocked once again. I told her that I didn't need all of it and that I was going to look at her other items too.
As we were getting ready to leave, she came up to me again and started piling fabric on me! "This one looks nice. Oh yes, this is a good one too..." I was laughing as this lady was unloading the entire table on me. She literally gave me the WHOLE thing and wouldn't take no for an answer! Finally we were able to leave, a huge box of fabric in D's hands, and me, with a pile of fabrics so high in my hands that I couldn't see where I was going.
We drove the opposite direction to hit up our last garage sale of the day. Normally this would have lasted a couple hours, but we were so tired from waking up early. I had been looking for a small table with a shelf on the bottom for quite some time... and at this sale I just happened to find one! Only $5!
So overall this garage sale trip was a success. I spent only $10 and got some awesome things! Is it weird that I feel a sense of accomplishment over silly things like this??
On Sunday I finished that piece of furniture that I asked for your help with! I decided on a colour thanks to you guys, and will post about it soon! (probably tomorrow).
What is your greatest garage sale find??
