I'm usually pretty lucky at finding bargains at garage sales, but Friday was the best day yet! I was at the last sale of the morning before heading home. It was already 9:30 so I figured everything good was already taken. There was this wicker set - love seat, chair and table, at the entrance of this man's garage. There was no price on it but I asked, "how much for this set?" He said $10.00!! I said for all of it??? Yes!!! I threw my money at him and said I'll back my Durango up in the garage. He even loaded it for me! I figure that nobody knew it was for sale, with no price tag on it. It looked like it was just their place to sit outside the garage. Why else had no one bought it before 9:30?
Then on to INSIDE my house. I'm having a garage sale next week. We don't have a garage. Just a carport. So I'm stacking everything I'm going to sell in the house. I don't know if we can live like this for a whole week. But at this point we have no choice! And WHY was I shopping at sales on Friday when I'm trying to get rid of my own junk?
This is our dining room---
Our living room, by the front door...
And I'm finally giving up all of my crafting stuff I don't use. I have LOTS of stuff in unopened packages. Polymer clay stuff, soap making stuff, paper mache, wooden boxes to paint. Something like 30 decorating and crafting books. Six 18 gallon plastic tubs full of fabric!!!! I'm only keeping rug hooking stuff. I'm sure alot of people will be thrilled to buy it and I will be thrilled to get it out of my house. It's to the point that my brain is cluttered. I don't want ANY stuff in my house anymore!!!
All of you Springfield girls, the sale starts next Thursday at 7:00 a.m. I'll tell you my address Tuesday night at Simply Fibers.
Wish me luck!
