Lately the Garage Sale Luck has been with me. Normally I strike out at garage sales because there is too much new stuff there and it’s not what I’m seeking. But yesterday I hit a sale less than a mile up the street. I did pretty good, and for a total of $6, I scooped up all kinds of goodies.
That thing with the hoops is a towel holder for a guest bath. There’s no space in this guest bath for it, but maybe in our someday home. Otherwise I’ll find a way to re purpose it. There was a lot of jewelry to hunt through, and I got these ultra sparkly chandelier earrings (I love anything sparkly) and these more understated ones. Plus I got my husband a brand new watch, still in the packaging, and found this 1950 triangle watch. (It will be listed in the etsy shop!)
The napkin set under the earrings is a nice country print for entertaining and tablescapes.
I picked up a book, and assumed it was 50 cents, but the woman wanted me to fill a bag for 50 cents, so I did just that! I just love anything Country Living, and the Stretching Book will benefit my dance and teaching. There are several magazines in there, and also a mid-century design book by Betty Pepis.
The last book on top is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which will also end up in the shop!
Lastly, I got this painting. It’s an actual oil painting, and the frame alone is worth a lot more, but I just love these older oil paintings in pastel colors. She had $15 on every other painting and when I asked about this one they said $5, but would go $4. When I bundled all the other items, it ended up being even less. I’m so glad I asked!
Finally we had a Florida Visitor at the sale too:
This big fella (or lady)? came sauntering up through the yard. We were telling him (her?) to find the water, because at 8:45 am it was already in the 90’s here.
I was hoping I wouldn’t have to make a rescue!
Our friend went on its way… off to take a dip in the lake.
You can do everything else online? Why not get help designing an event… ammiright? A small spark of this started years back in my head. Cue the wavy dream sequence filter… It was 2008-ish when I started Peachy Keen Party Queen, a children’s event planning business. I loved putting together creative parties, and planning […]
I know, I know. Fashionably late. I have a good excuse though and that’s because I rolled out a new service… which I’ll talk about in next week’s posting. You’ll notice that I’m moving away from the blog a bit and moving towards more services I can offer to make a difference in people’s lives. […]
