A few Garage sale finds...

Well it's coming to a close of Garage Sale season and this will be the last week for Thrifty Treasures over at Rhodas blog Southern Hospitality. Soooo very sad!!! I will miss it and can't wait for it next year! Go stop over and see everyone's Wonderful finds here.


My Gramma called this morning and told us of a HUGE garage sale, so we dropped everything and got in the car and went, ok not really but we eventually made our way there. It was definitely HUGE. It was sad though, the husbands wife had just passed away and they were selling just about everything so he could get a smaller place. There was soooooo many family members there, I felt so weird walking through the house and picking things out. She passed away not even a week ago and the old man wanted it gone. They were all sooo nice. The woman liked to craft, and she saved everything and had a little of everything. The prices were good too, I made hubby ask if they would take less on something and they did, and We/I've neverrrrrrr done that. They are having it again in 2 weeks and I want to go back. There was tons of stuff in every room.



This cute little fall centerpiece was $2, I think it will look Great with one of my pumpkin candles!




and this...




A large bag of these for $1, these will be fun to use for something or just fill up a cute jar with them.




A 5ft Christmas tree for the yard, I got this for my gramps, He always decorates the front for Christmas. They had TONS of Christmas decorations.




I got this light for our hallway. $1




A few of these frames at .50 a piece.




I don't know what it is, but this is one of my fave finds. It was .50. I love it as is. It's bright yellow, I know but I am getting to where I paint EVERYTHING white or black and need pops of different colors throughout the house, right?




This little carrier for $1. I will definitely paint this. Yea white or black, lol. See what I mean?




Loved this little candle holder, super cute for winter decor!




And a wreath to make pretty...




And these were also a fave, Carbon Monoxide detectors, they are new and these are SO HIGH and we needed them. And these were only $1.00 each, still have the little baggies with all the screws attached!




And last but not least my fave find for sure!! They had this marked $15 but they took $10. I normally wouldn't want a piece like this but it's perfecttttttt in my office and fits my candles small or big perfectly!! I am super excited about this and have already got a coat of black paint drying, lol.



That's not it, theres more but I am going to show you the rest in another post! I got some Great things from FreeCycle.org. My free coffee table is finished, but the pictures I took were horrible so I promise I will get it posted soon...

You shouldn't worry about bargaining for something, it's done all the time! I think if you ask respectfully the response is usually good, and if they don't want to come down on a price they can just say no. I think I'd leave the green carrier that color, it's very cool.

Sweet things, Nicole! Thanks for faithfully joining the party this year. Don't be sad, we will all have plenty to keep us busy the rest of the year & then we can look forward to Spring & starting all over again. :)

Love the shelf & the clothes pins. I have a red tea pot just like the yellow one you got. But I use mine for decorative purposes only as it is rusted inside.
