This Weeks Garage Sale Finds

Garaging was great this weekend! Take a look...I picked up this beautiful Bombay Company table at the estate sale. We priced it at $65.00 and it didn't sell, at 11:00am we reduced everything by 25% and it still didn't sell. At 12:00pm we reduced everything by 50%- When I saw this sweet table still sitting there, I snatched it up. A steal for $32.50. A gallon of wood spools for $6An apothecary jar full of faux fruit for $5, vintage dice for $1.00, and an iron urn for $3.
Iron Bookends $2, vintage recipe book 1.00, craft book 1.00.

New candy jar $1.00Iron urn $1.00
4 quarts of vintage buttons $5.00

This king size pottery barn bedding set was another estate sale find at 50% off. I paid $37.50. I love the beaded pillow. The benefit of organizing an estate sale is the privilege to pre-shop. Here's a few items I picked up at full price.
Metal tiles $20
This hook shelf has a great chippy look- it was $15.
This apothecary jar- now filled with the vintage buttons bought, was $5. We had so much fun at the estate sale, I'll give you an update on Wednesday: Trash to Cash. Hope you had a great weekend. Love, Kelly


  1. Great items. You really did good. Hugs, Marty

  2. You are so lucky!! I can't even imagine buying tall the stuff in the dollars you spent on!! I wish we had the garage sale and car boot sale in India!!

  3. I love the book ends, I would have definitely bought those! And so cheap!!

  4. Thanks for the heads up on the estate sale. You are great at what you do. And I must admit that I benefited greatly from that sale. That ottoman has sparked an entire living room rearrange! Which isn't easy to do when you have a piano like mine!
    Wish I could find buttons like that--I collect them and never have luck finding any.
    Glad you posted this. I was wondering if you'd done any pre-sale shopping!

  7. Love the table and the buttons!

  8. Wow! Four quarts of buttons! Just picture a bug-eyed reader. I really love the bookshelf and metal tiles and have to agree with you on that side table. We always love visiting the Bombay Company. What a steal!
