1st garage sale adventure of the season!

My good friend Lisa and I hit up a HUGE neighborhood wide garage sale this morning.  This was my first outing of the season, super excited since I have been jonesing for deals and treasures all winter long!

I spent under $15 which was AWESOME and while I did not make any amazing finds I did find some great fabrics, buttons, ruffle trim and a new iron!  Seriously..I think I have gone over the deep end with this whole sewing thing but I am loving it!  Plus who can beat 50 cents for 2-3 yds of fabric?!?!  With all this sewing, I have busted out my iron and ironing board more in that past month then I have in the past 10 years so when I found a super nice iron for only 50 cents I grabbed it & ran!  I was proud of myself for walking away from an antique china cabinet that was FREE!!! I still cannot believe it and I should have had my friend take a picture of me with it for proof because Dave doesn't believe it either! :)  It was in rough shape but still I am shocked I was not shoving it in the back of my SUV!

Here is to many more garage sale treasures to come this Spring and Summer!!!!!!!

  1. I'll bet Dave is thanking me right about now :) I'm pretty sure that cabinet would have fallen apart if we had tried to move it!
    Major hills + garage sales = very tired, sore legs!!! I've got to get in better shape!!
