$31

Yes, it's time for garage sale posts again!

And yes, I realize it's Wednesday and I went garage sale-ing on Saturday... we're moving slow in the Myers' house these days... :)

It was definitely a successful trip for our first Saturday of the season! I was pretty geeked!

Here's the rundown of what I snagged:


$8.00 - Bumbo seat with tray - I'd just told Ry the night before that we should get a Bumbo seat for Hazel. What a treat to find one for eight bucks with a tray!!

$2.00 - itzbeen baby care timer - Brand new in the box! I've seen these before and wondered if it would be useful, so I figured I'd give it a try. I've used it for a couple of days now and I really like it! Very handy to keep track of how long it's been since I fed or changed Hazel or how long she's been sleeping. Works out well when my sleep-deprived Mommy brain can't even think clearly enough to put the orange juice in the fridge and not the pantry.

$4.00 - A-dorable Ralph Lauren top and jean skirt - it's for size 18 months, but I'm happy to wait. We'll have one cute toddler come next summer! :)
$1.00 - 3 pair of leggings


$1.00 - 5 pairs of pretty socks - man, girl socks and leggings are SO much cuter than boy socks!
And my very favorite purchase of the day...

$15.00 - a nearly new Kate Spade diaper bag!! - Isn't it pretty? I love green - and the best part is that Ry's willing to carry this one! :)

(complete with matching changing pad!)


So, have y'all started your garage sale seasons yet? Are you interested in linking up your posts on here again so we can share the joy through the summer? If there's interest, I'm in!

Happy spring!

Oh, and Happy 4 weeks to that little girl I adore.
(Is it just me or is she just wonderful?)

Kim said...

I'll admit it...I've been reading your blog for awhile now and never commented :) But I couldn't resist telling you I LOOOVE the Kate Spade bag!! And for $15?? Man, I need to go yard sale-ing more! I'm a Kate Spade junkie and I've been drooling over KS diaper bags for a few years now...we don't even have kids yet!

Liz said...

you seem to have awesome stuff at garage sales in your area, not broken old junk! lucky!

amanda said...

Total awesomness. :)

Our northern MN garage sale season is a tad on the short side.. but we're having a phenomenal insanely beautiful snow-free early spring. So I'm gearing up to have a sale with my mom & sisters! Can't wait to get out & find some goods.

My husband & I took a load of scrap metal to the recycle center yesterday. (We cleaned up unusable scrap material from his contracting business... AND we made $81 in doing so.) Anyway, while there, he was totally rolling his eyes at me, while I waited for our trailer of heavy metal to be unloaded I was in awe scanning the scrap yard & all it's contents. There were some treasures in there, I just know it!

Your Hazel is beautiful. :)

Susan Graham said...

yea for bargins! I'm totally bummed that I am scheduled to be in the hospital for the 4 days my entire town has a giant garage sale. Oh well, it will just a bit more of a search this year.

It's not just you :)

I am so jealous that garage sales have started near you already. *sigh* And I LOVE your new banner photo. I've been anticipating the addition of two more feet up there. It's just perfect. Happy 4 weeks to Hazel. She's darling.

A Lil Story said...

We just had a big yard sale of our own, got rid of a lot, most of it still in great condition...

You got some awesome stuff!! That outfit is adorable- Hazel will look so cute in that! I need to go this weekend... there has been a million around here because of the amazing weather... I'm inspired now! =)

Charlene Austin said...

ooooh she is tooooo cute! Your blog banner is the cutest picture ever. So funny.

I am soooooo glad you are back to garage saleing again!! I usually only find junk but I can't wait till the the GS season starts here. I love seeing your amazing finds!!

Chelsa said...

oh how i love yard sales! you had some great finds! i've went to a couple these past few weeks... since we sold our house and are building i'm sort of limited on what i can get right now, but i got the boys some great, hardly worn, clothes (i buy bigger sizes ahead of time too) :)

miss hazel is changing so quickly! happy 4 weeks- she is gorgeous!

jennking said...

I have been following your blog for a couple months now! LOVE it!! Congrats on your adorable baby girl! I can't believe she is already 4 weeks old!!! I LOVE the itzbeen timer!!! Unfortunately I paid FULL price for mine!!! I use it when anyone is taking medicine....it's great when the whole house is sick and I can't keep track of what time we each took something!!!!!!! LOVE it!!! You got a ton of great stuff!!! We are actually having a garage sale this weekend! YEA!!!! Our neighborhood holds one, once a year!

SarahBfromMN said...

Yay! I have been eagerly waiting your garage sale posts! And what a way to kick off the season!! Hope you are doing well. :) Beautiful pic of Miss Hazel.

Erin said...

whats the best way to find garage sales? Do you just go and look around?

Abby said...

Yay! Good for you, girl! And, yes, I'd looooove to participate in garage sale posts! I'm a thrift-storer too - can we include those finds??? (PS. I would totally agree that pretty much girl EVERYTHING is waaaay cuter than boys stuff - praying our next one will be a girl - ha!)

melanie said...

I am so impressed with your finds! Fabulous--especially the diaper bag (so chic!)

And yes, Hazel is marvelous!

Mama Llama said...

okay-- really. where do you live? where i live, all of those things would have been sold at a consignment store. people don't sell stuff like that at yardsales here. I am having a yard sale soon and am selling nothing like that. all of my good stuff I am trying to sell at consignment stores or craigslist.

You've got some swanky yard sales.

Amy's Blah, Blah, Blogging said...

Wow! Those are some great finds. Around here you are not so much finding more than a bike with a rusty tire and some dust collectors. Very fun!

Oh, and how that little one is already four weeks old is beyond me. Time flys!

Lindsayb-mo said...

I LOVE garage sales. They are so much fun and my favorite thing to do on Friday and Saturday mornings! I can't believe you found that bumbo seat for only $8. That is amazing. I looked forever for one on ebay and they are very high. Great find!!!!

Christine said...

So....can we garage sale again when I visit? You know, on Southwest, I'm allowed 2 checked bags for free. :)

And yes, if you have a linky, I'll link. I found a lampshade for 50 cents last week, and I'm going to a multi-family sale this weekend. It's a slower start up here, but we're definitely reveling in spring. (It's going to be 85 here today!!)

Love you! Love that little baby girl. Isn't it fun to buy girl stuff now? It's in such nice condition!! I found a beautiful Gap plaid shirt dress for C at a consignment store last week that I swear was never worn. And then I turn around and all the toddler boys' stuff has scuffs and grass stains.

love, Stinky

ps: "Ambrati." It sounds like Italiano.

Tracy said...

totally jealous of the kate spade diaper bag! Its on my wish list. :)

Brittanie said...

Wow, you SCORED! That's awesome.

Anna said...

I love your finds. I agree that little girl socks are cuter than little boy socks! (I have a 2-month-old son.) And your Hazel is precious and adorable.

Mr. Nordmann said...

I think I am going to send you money to garage sale for me in your area. The ones I find, even in nice neighborhoods, have broken and overpriced items. I am so jealous.

M.O.T.B said...

She really is beautiful. And a Kate Spade diaper bag...two reasons to be jealous!

simplebeauty said...

Oh this gives me such inspiration to actually start "junking" again!

Happy hunting!!
