    Default First garage sale of the season-- for here at least

    We haven't really gotten into the swing of sales yet, so I was thrilled to see the library book sale and another garage sale today.

    I got:

    5 board books for kids
    5 Golden books for kids
    TWG 3- in hardback
    1 older Simplicity sewing pattern for stuffed toys
    1 Abercrombie shirt
    1 Ralph Lauren shirt
    1 skillet
    1 8x8" baking pan

    Total spent : $3.30

    Hubby and I were talking about this just the other day and we can't wait either. We have seen a few advertised in the paper, but I have found the best deals at sales I have found just driving around. We just pick a nice sunny Saturday and make a day of it. We just bought a used Ford Bronco w/4-wheel drive and hubby claims it's to haul the boat for fishing, but I have claimed it for yard selling. I like to restore old furniture and you never know when you will find that one piece at a price to good to pass up. Since I got rid of my big Pick up truck, I need something to haul with.

    Wow Denise, you did good GF! I could use another 8 x 8 baking pan myself. I always head straight to the bakeware, cookware, utensils, and dishes unless I see a piece of furniture that catches my eye first. I look at what-nots next and clothes last. Hubby heads straight to the tools and anything rusty. Around here though, you can see everything from live chickens to rusty nails, so it's all good for everyone. LOL
