Garage sales in the Fall Yes Yes Please

It’s my favorite time of year for a garage sales. When you can jump out of your car and not melt from the  heat. And two weeks ago a neighboring town held its annual town wide garage sale. Do you read your town’s local paper?  Maybe not to many people do now in this internet age.  I’ve tweeted and reposted this great post about the app GARAGE SALE FINDER.  So that will definitely give you internet savvy people a heads up to what sales are going on.  I  had heard about the sale in my local town paper.  I guess I am just still a little old fashioned , I love the info that you can get from the local town paper.  It’s actually how I have found all the apts I have lived in.

To say it was garage sale heaven is an understatement. lol It’s was awesome weather wise. A glorious day to shop…

Here’s some of the treasures I picked up…IMG_6658

I loved this frame the moment I saw it and when the lady said $5 I had the money in her hands before she could blink.

You already saw below planter’s in my post on Monday.  I got these two because the next item you will see I actually made my friend stop the car for…IMG_6756

This lantern  totally made me jump out of the car.  And I was feeling a little bold and offered the seller $5 for the lantern when she said yes right away I took the planters as I had a $10 bill and you would have thought I won the lottery.  I was on cloud 9 for the rest of day.  Oh yeah happy dance!!IMG_6759

I got these for $3 each and thought they will look cute in my craft room for holding my thrifty finds.IMG_6763 IMG_6763

The last of my finds…IMG_6764

Another peek of my stunning frame.  It’s huge I love it.  I look forward to using it in a family photo shoot as soon as I am done re-vamping it.  Get ready JCostaphotography.IMG_6765

    Lovely finds. I’ve never really been lucky when it comes to garage sales. Maybe I’m just not that creative. Congrats, and I look forward to their updated looks 😉
