It's Garage Sale Time!

Hi Friends! The weather is finally warming up, people are doing their Spring Cleaning and de-cluttering, so that can only mean one thing. It's Garage Sale Time!
I just thought I'd share a few of the gems I've found recently to remind you to take a little time and go exploring yard sales on the weekends. You never know what you might find.
Remember the Seaside Summer Memories Vignette I showed you this week? Well, I picked up the vintage green bottle at our semi-annual neighborhood garage sale.
That same day, I found this awesome old wicker basket and these embroidery hoops. I think I paid $6.00 total. I am still looking for the perfect spot for the basket and I have an idea brewing for the hoops.
How about the Vintage Metal Cart Makeover I did recently? This beauty was at a large garage sale to raise money for several families to go to El Salvador on a mission trip.
At the same garage sale, I found these 3 pair of shoes (2 are from The Gap) for $2.00/pair and this sweet curly coral scarf. I'm so excited to have some fun new-to-me accessories!

I love finding treasures that have outworn their welcome in other people's lives. A couple of years ago, I spied an old leather camera case at a yard sale. I knew my photographer nephew was collecting vintage cameras and I thought the case would be cool. Little did I know that there was a camera in there too. Turns out it was a Zeiss Ikon Contax probably from the 1940's and was one of the premiere cameras of the day. I paid literally pennies on the dollar of what this thing is worth. I gave it to my nephew for his graduation present, thinking it was just a really neat decorative item. He has since used it several times and it takes great pictures.

So, I encourage you in the coming weekends to grab a buddy and/or a to-go cup of coffee, go out there and do some treasure seeking! Some of my favorite items in our home were once love by someone else. What's your favorite gem you've found at a yard sale?
I'm linking up at some of these great parties and


  1. I participated in a community yard sale this weekend so I didn't get to go to any of the other sales and see what they had :( I did get rid of a bunch of things and put a little money in my pocket so that much was good.

  2. I love me some garage and yard sales! You've found some awesome stuff! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof
