October is always a big month for garage sales here in Arizona. I had to really shop hard this weekend as next weekend I'll be organizing a huge rummage sale for my daughter's elementary school. I'll be posting more details about that sale later this week, so if you're local, mark your calendar. Here's a peek at some of my finds...Let's take a closer look...
This wooden die will look great in our toy room, it was $1.00. Those bars are homemade lye soap for .50- I've heard it's great for removing stains on clothing- and it also looks cool.
All of the pillows were purchased for just $2.00. These are feather pillows with great quality fabric.
The journals were purchased as part of a big stack of books for a few dollars and the "Guests" sign was $3.00.
I LOVE! these vintage brushes- they have such great texture and were only $2.00 each. The cast iron bird dish was $2.00, the frame 1.00 and the french clock was $4.00 (It will look great sprayed black)
This hanging lantern will get a little Pottery Barn make-over for the holidays- It was $5.00
Here's another one of those feather pillows- $2.00
This brand new black and white bedding set ($10.00) will be the jumping off point for a 13 year olds bedroom make-over. The feather trimmed pillows were $2.00 each
I can a lot of jam for the holidays so it's a treat to find cases of cute jars for $2.00 each. I love the shapes of the self seal jars on the left. The seller used to do candles and is now getting out of it.
I'm still working on collecting letters for an upcoming project- The gold "B" was $1.00 and the word B.A.T.H. was $2.00.
This Thomasville coffee table was part of a set of 3
Here's the two side tables. The seller said she paid $1200.00 for the set. She sold the set to me for $25.00- This will not be my next paint project- I will flip them, as is, on craigslist for- Hum... Maybe $150- what do you think?
Here's another set I purchased. Birdhouse bench, adirondack chair and hat rack- all for $40.00. I just wanted the bench so I'll probably sell the other 2 pieces. They are pretty rickity, but have a great style. Not pictured is over 40 items of clothing (many from Anthropologie) that I purchased fro .50 to 1.00 each. I also picked up some Belle Notte pillowcases- a great ebay seller- So I'll keep you posted on my profits from those. Hope you had a great garaging weekend. Love, Kelly.
