I used to go to garage sales all the time when the boys were young. What a great place to buy kids clothes. Once they got older, I stopped going. I still enjoy them but haven’t had the time to go in recent years.
A friend of ours from church posted on Facebook (what a great marketing deal that is!) that she was having one and had primitive type antique furniture and little girl clothes.
I’m always up for checking out the furniture even though I really don’t need anything and after talking with my daughter-in-law and hearing my granddaughter needed clothes for this winter, I thought I’d would stop by. She lives about 40 miles from me but I was going to be in her area anyway plus she was kind enough to let me stop early so I didn’t have to wait around for it to start.
This is what I all ended up with…
Quite the haul for winter little girl clothes, some of it new with tags on. I love those little green boots. I wish they came in my size. However, I doubt they would look as cute in a women's size 12! After having three boys, it sure is fun to buy for a girl.
Twelve Christmas plates still in the boxes. Very classic..white with a silver rim and a silver snowflake in the middle. According to the box they came from Target so I’m hoping Target carries the same pattern this year so I can get a few more pieces that match.
A set of two hi-top deck chairs. Love these! Now, we just need to get the sealer on the deck so we can use them. For now they’re on the front porch.
A church pew! Finally! I have wanted a church pew since I don’t know when. This was a nice small (4 foot) one in really good shape. I’m not real sure where I’m going to put it yet but love it just the same and the price was right! But now I’m thinking of painting it black, then antiquing it to make it look worn. What do you think? Leave it alone or paint it black?
and last but not least this great little table and chair set. I’ve wanted something for in the guest room for folks to sit at to write or use a computer and this fits the bill perfectly. Honestly, this is probably my favorite purchase from the day. I just love this little table.
The worst part was with the garage sale being a good drive away, I had, of course, driven the car because I really didn’t think I’d be coming home with anything that wouldn’t fit in the car.
DH was nice enough to go along back with the truck to help me load everything.
