Since I've gotten down here, my mom and I have dubbed Fridays our garage saleing day. She gets so excited and gets the paper right away in the morning to check where they all are, then she maps out our route. We have coffee then head out at 9:00.
This morning The Ladies Club is having their annual garage sale and she said there was some "good stuff" there last year. lol She's so cute.....
I love garage sales and its so funny when other people think what they have is junk and to me it's a total treasure. In fact, I've decorated and set up my little cottage here solely on garage sale and junk store finds and everyone that comes in calls it a "doll house". :)
And one thing I've learned from my hubby is the art of negotiation....well lol if you don't ask you don't get a lower price! lol
Here is some of my ultimate garage sale finds over the years:
A mens solid gold coin ring surrounded by diamonds - $1.00 (the ring was worth about $500)
A 30 gallon fish tank with stand, heater, filter and all the goodies - $5.00
4 large windows of pink and white long sheers - $1.00
Antique carnival glass candy dish - $1.00 (I collect carnival glass, turned out the candy dish was actually worth $480)
Antique dressing table - $5.00
Antique secretary desk - $30.00 (these are worth hundreds!)
Write me a comment and tell me about some of your ultimate finds. I love this stuff!!!
