Garage Sale Finds


I went to a few garage sales yesterday and only hit paydirt at one of them. 
I love this print of a young girl trying to reach the door knocker on the door. Looks like she is carrying a basket of goodies.  It's framed in a really nice gold frame and the subdued colors of the print are beautiful.  It is a 24 X 14 size and cost me a dollar.



Colorful flower pots for 50 cents each that I will fill with Easter eggs and grass and set on our Easter dinner table. 


This pretty plate and plate holder cost me a whopping one dollar. I'll put this item in my booth at Love's Brair Patch.  So I spent $3.00 total.  The other sales I went to were a bust.  One was a high dollar garage sale and my bet is they didn't make that much money.  They had lovely things and I saw a lot of things I would have liked but couldn't afford.

The only thing about my garage sale outing was I wasn't with my sister.  When we are together it is much more fun.

Oh, love the picture! You scored! And, yes, it is more fun with a sister. Next time you come to see me, we'll do garage sales in Guthrie.

Great finds and amazing prices for what you bought. Love the little girl picture. Very sweet.

I agree with you about the high $$ garage sellers. I too wonder why they bother to set out their unwanted and overpriced stuff then hang around all day watching people browse. Silly folks....
