Awesome Garage Sale Finds

Yesterday, Kristin and I went to the annual neighborhood garage sale in the neighborhood that we grew up in.  For one day only, 100+ homes in the area have a garage sale and I try my very best to never miss it. I have loved garage sales since I was a little kid. I’d drag home such random items. I remember buying a wobbly end-table for .10 (that my grandparents kept for at least fifteen years) and a wig box full of wigs (who could pass that deal up?). I still have the wig box fyi. Don’t ask me why.  Nonetheless, I LOVE buying gently used items at a fraction of the cost; it is eco-friendly and cost-effective!

Here are some of my favorite finds from the weekend:

I’ve wanted to make bread for a long time, so I’m looking forward to testing out some recipes!

Ice cream maker

An ice cream – frozen yogurt – and sorbet maker. This was my most expensive purchase, but it has only been used twice and Kris has the same one and swears by it. I can’t wait to try it out!

085

Organic lavender!

076

An encyclopedia of essential oils – AWESOME! And those little bottles (to-be used for my essential oil concoctions) are brand new and were in the free bin!

My grand total for these items was: $12.75, but the ice cream maker was $10 alone. I felt it was a lot to spend on something at a garage sale, but Kris said it was worth it. I’ll find out soon enough!

What is your best garage sale find and how much did it cost?!

Take care, Stephanie

    I am a garage sale Junkie! It is very hard for me to pay full price on any item when I can buy someone elses for so much cheaper! Great deals by the way!

    I love garage sales too! But considering I really need to hold one of my own, I’m on a ban for now. LOL

    I have found a kitchen table to $10.00. A good solid Formica table that will withstand my kids doing crafts on.

    You found some awesome stuff! We desperately need to have a garage sale but haven’t found the time to drag everything out of the attic and price it.
