This weeks Garaging Finds

Memorial weekend usually kicks off the slow garage sale season here in Arizona, however, we really hit the jackpot. I think I say this every weekend, but I really found some great trash. Take a look at my new piece of furniture. This will need to be painted black and distressed, but It's a keeper. It will provide great storage and display area and it was just $50. This sweet antique desk was $5.00 and the monopoly game (complete with all 8 pieces) was $1.00.
The score of the weekend was my new pottery barn pillows. These are also keepers! I paid $20.00 for the set of 5. Two are silk and all have down pillow inserts- I can't imagine what these sold for new!
This set of 3 framed prints were $2.50 each, the black spindle was $1.00, the pumpkin and berry garland was 1.00, The framed stichery quote was $2.00, the candlestick $2.00 and the easel was $1.00.
Even though Mr. Right is definitely my knight in shinning armour- I think of this as a "mini me" I'm not exactly sure where this will go, or what I will do with him, but for $5 I just couldn't leave him behind. If I were still teaching drama it would be the greatest prop! The "Rodeo Tonight" sign will be repurposed. It was also $5.
I picked up some get crafting/scrapbook supplies. I don't scrapbook, but my kids love the stickers. For just a couple bucks I got hundreds for them. I also got an exacto knife set for $2, a stamper that lets you spell out words for $2, new measuring cups and spoons for 1.00, and a secret message pen with black light for the kids.
It was a great weekend- and now we will enjoy another day off by the BBQ and Pool. Have a fantastic Memorial Day, take the time to remember those who have fought for our freedoms. Love, Kelly.

  1. What a deal you got on those PB pillows and that's one awesome sign!


  2. Really great finds on those pillows! Good shopping.

  3. Wow, you found some really great things. Love all of them. I havn't seen any good sales in a while. Maybe I need to try a different neighborhood. Hugs, Marty

  4. Nice finds, you have some good "junk" in your neck of the woods!

  5. I LOVE that knight, that is so cool. I feel ya on the prop thing. Everything I look at I think about what kind of prop it would make.

    The pillows are awesome! Another great weekend of finds for sure.

  6. Love the "cubby shelf." I have a thing for cube storage. In fact, all your finds are wonderful, I want to go shopping where you do! The knight cracks me up...he'd go perfectly with my husband's sword display.

  7. Great stuff!! I would NOT repurpose that rodeo sign!! I would ebay or Etsy that baby!! My son would love to have that in his fraternity house!! (I hear there is a rodeo there every night!!lol)

  8. wow!!! You got some really good stuff!!! I'm your newest follower too! I love people who have the same passion like me to buy and resell things! I have had no luck this year buying much though! Everything has pretty much been for me! =) Congrats on your baby girl!!!
    Take care!

  9. I love the cubby storage unit. I would keep that as well if I found it, along with the PB pillows. I had a yard sale this weekend so I didn't get a chance to find goodies. :(

  10. Yikes! Please don't paint over the rodeo sign -- it's just great as is!

  11. Would love to see what you do with these. The crafting possibilities are endless. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)
