Garage Sale Finds

My hubby woke me up early this morning to go to some garage sales with him. Initially I made him go alone b/c It's friggin Saturday and I wanted to sleep (and normally he does too), but he came home and woke me up again to go. I'm so glad we went b/c we got some great deals.

3 dressers for $50






3 albums for $7: Diana Ross (never opened), Grease, and Madonna. I'm going to frame the Diana Ross one and give it to my Mom. Now watch her FINALLY read my blog and the suprise be ruined.






I bought this knick knack for $1. I think it will be cute as a makeup brush holder.



What do you think? Did we do good? I'm hoping to use the armoire for my nail polish and makeup, and the other dressers are going in our rooms. Now we just need to refurbish them :)

Guess what else I found???? More like a who. Virginia from Like Mom Made spotted me at the garage sale...that was so cool!

you did get some great finds. I just posted pictures of my bench I found today. I still do not know where I will put it but it was super cute

It's about 5 inches tall. I think it's a pencil holder, maybe. I'm not sure...the people who were having the sale were selling a lot of the grandfather's stuff and he had some pretty weird but cool knick knacks.

It was super great running in to you!! At first I wasn't sure if I would be asking some random person if they were "sailor wifey" and having them look at me like I was nuts! But it worked out well!

Oh and I LOVE the "make up brush" holder idea... That is so great and retro. Fantastic!!!! Very 60s/70s... Do you know how you want to refurbish your dressers? I love redoing furniture. It is a hobby of mine!

SailorWifey said...

Can you imagine if I wasn't who you thought I was...I'd be giving you the side eye like "What you talkin bout Willis" LOL

I have absolutely no clue how to refurbish furniture so if you'd like to help I'd really appreciate it :)

Enamel Girl said...

you lucked up! those are some amazing albums and probably worth some $$$

that furniture was a good deal too. i'm never that lucky. i guess i need to visit garage sale more often!

maybe me and the girls can do this over the summer :)
