Alright, so I knew not to expect much from Easter weekend garage sales, but since we had eager-to-hit-the-sales family in town, I figured we'd give it a whirl.
At least this week the weather was warm (70+ degrees when I got up at 6:45) and it wasn't raining!
I only bought four things but I had a blast tromping around Franklin with my Aunt & Uncle and cousin, so it was well worth the trip. Here's the run-down of my haul:
$0.50 - purple Crocs for Haze - they're size 6/7, so it will be a while still, but they were in fantastic shape, so I was glad to spend fifty cents now in favor of not spending $20-$30 later when I wanted them.
$5.00 - 2 white, rectangular lamp shades - for my bedroom. I love me some right angles!
Free - unopened box of sidewalk chalk from Target. The lady with the lamp shades threw it in with my $5.00 purchase. Guess what Oliver and Hazel got in their Easter basket! :)
$1.00 - pair of Banana Republic jeans - they'll never fit me, but the denim was so soft and they were 'wide leg', so I couldn't resist picking them up in the name of fabric. I've been looking for some good fabric to make these pants for Hazel and you just can't beat $1 for a yard's worth of good denim!
No tuck-and-run item this week. You can't force it. And, it's going to be pretty tough to beat $2 for a video monitor set (which we are LOVING!).
The good news is that next weekend is my subdivision's neighborhood-wide sale (yay!) and another one of my favorite neighborhoods for yard sales is having a big sale too. It's going to be good, y'all! I can just feel it!
