The night before, we planned our conquest. We searched Craig's List and mapped out about 10-15 garage sales we were going to hit. We woke up the next morning around 6am, hit the nearest Starbucks, and took our wads of cash to see what we could find.
And from then on, I was hooked.
Imagine my excitement when I noticed that our neighbors put up signs for their garage sale this morning. My first garage sale of the season!(I know, I live a wild, exciting life.) Here were my finds:
Grand total: $14
Is it weird that I'm totally planning on making clothes out of the shower curtain and table cloth? No? Ok good. I know the Scrabble tiles might seem a little random, but I'm going to use those to make Scrabble tile pendants. It's not often you find bags of Scrabble tiles without having to buy the game. As for the frames, those are going to be dressing up a bare wall in our dining room.
I probably could have gotten everything even cheaper, but I suck at bartering. They give me a price and I give in and just pay it. Something to work on before this summer's garage sale adventures.
