I have been reading blogs for about a year now and have been amazed at some of the treasures people find at garage sales and thrift stores. I have found quite a few in great deals in times past but it has been a while since I made a great find. Friday morning, everything changed. My husband called me to tell me about a moving sale not far from our house that I should stop at. So on my way to church to see the closing of VBS I stopped and this is what I found.
8 pillows, in great shape, $2 a piece (the one hiding behind the others is green toile on one side and chenille on the other)
Hooked rug, in need of cleaning, (I already cleaned it) $5
Footstool, never used $10
Two hinged wooden boxes $1 each (it will be fun decorating these)
Lamp and shade, great condition $5
Shabby chic terrarium box $4
storage box/table $2
We already had the dog
I will have to do a little repair work on the outside of top
five yellow and one green bowl $3
The footstool found a new home immediately, I will probably trade it with the one in the bedroom when I do my living room redo.
I will try to post pictures of these items in their new homes, if they stay here in our home. We bought a few garden tools and a ladder that I didn't take pictures of. The total cost of the things I showed you was $47. That was a fun moving sale!
