I love going garage saling with friends or family. Not only is it fun to walk around and enjoy their company, but I love seeing what everyone scored. It’s almost like you got it, except you don’t have to pay for it or find a spot for it. I still feel the thrill of the hunt and am almost as excited as if I found it.
I also love reading blog posts of other people’s treasures. So I’m sharing my finds with you today! If there’s one garage sale that I have to get to every year, it’s this one.
My first score of the day was this Joovy Caboose Ultralight, $40. Sometimes you have to be patient with garage saling, I’ve been looking for this same stroller for two years! Finally found it. Super happy.
In order to get the goods, you gotta get garage saling early. I found the stroller around 7:30 am. Our favorite garage sale opened up at 8:00, so I headed out there to wait.
Good thing I did, I was able to snag five Pottery Barn seagrass rugs and a dresser that were sitting in the driveway, priced. I was seconds away from getting a 8×10 PB rug for our family room, but alas, it was not meant to be.
$30 times 5 = $150 worth of rugs, and I paid $12 :)
Here’s my pile. Part of this is my mother-in-law, and two SIL’s, and no, I didn’t get those AWESOME seagrass baskets and mirror. The mirror was $25, the baskets were $10 each, and I didn’t have a place for them. But aren’t they so nice?! But I’m happy she got em. :) I did get the dresser!
I did get these frames, you can see them leaning against the dresser. Pottery Barn, $8 for two of them, $10 for the other. If you would have told me I’d spend that much on frames at a garage sale, I probably would have laughed in your face. I guess you kinda go in “I need that” mode when you’re at the PB house…
But they’re BIG, and they’ll hold the Instagram pictures I’ve been wanting to frame.
Wanna see the house we call the “Pottery Barn House” ? Gorgeous.
My favorite find was this docking station for our iPhones, $10. Doug was going to get me the same exact one for Mother’s Day. I was going to buy one for him for Father’s Day. Great minds!
Either way, I love it. It’s amazing how much better of a mood I’m in when listening to music, same goes with the kids. “The Bare Necessities Radio” on Pandora is what’s up.
I bought these pillow covers for $2 each, the other pillows for $1 each. I took my green pillow covers off, and popped on these covers. Love the colors!
There is a gray tone in the pillow, and I also bought a gray queen sized throw.
I got this wool vintage throw pillow, $4. I love it.
These old tiles for either my kitchen or dining room. Talked her down to $4.
Here are some other things we got.
What’d ya think of my finds?
