The fella and I stopped off at the first sale, a multi-family garage sale that mostly contained childrens items, kids clothing, and some other usuals. I didn't really find anything of interest, and Dustin just picked up a game controller, as well as a cordless drill in preperation for when we get ourselves a house.
The second garage sale we had almost missed, we were driving by and I just noticed it. We turned around and stopped off at the old nunnery at which they had plenty of old dishware. I was in heaven, though I was a little unsure since hardly any of it was priced out. So I picked our a small stack of dishes that caught my eye as well as this amazingly shabby chic wooden serving tray (which will fit nicely in my future blue kitchen!). At a grand total of $1.10 I should have picked up that extra stack of minty green glass dainty plates.
In the garden department, my pumpkins had been started indoors about a week ago. If you have pumpkins then you know how quickly they can sprout, mine were no exception. I didn't have enough small pots, so I searched the garage to come across a crazy collection of those slushee cups with the points on them that my Dad has been saving for some time now. I cut the tops off (where the points are) and poked a hole in the bottom of each one. I used these to start my pumpkins. How earth friendly am I?
In conclusion, the local paper shows a few more garage sales tomorrow so, perhaps more finds to come soon? We shall see.
