Great garage sales “finds.” One in particular.

I found some great garage sale finds this weekend. One, in particular.

First, I found these plastic tablecloths. No, they are not meant for the table. I try to keep plastic tablecloths around for all kinds of painting projects. They are not as slippery as plastic. I bought two of them for seventy-five cents each. Score! I love me some cheap shoppin’.

Here are some tips for garage sale shopping.

I am a good garage sale shopper. If you want someone who can bargain, I’m your gal. However, I never take advantage. But I know the value of things, and more importantly, I know what it’s worth to me. I’ve walked away from many purchases because I know what I want and how much I’m willing to pay for it.

Next, I found this bulb planter for a dollar (on the far left). I had just bought bulbs over the weekend and so this was a God-thing in my opinion. Otherwise, I would’ve used a spoon. The books were fifty cents apiece. Another score.

But then there is this!My best garage sale find.

I’m probably the only person I know who gets this excited about “old”. But this clipboard is just that. It was a dollar as well. Another score. I mean look at all that “oldness”. Just want to hug it.

I have no idea what I will do with it, but I love the size. I’m thinking I may not paint it which is my first inclination for everything. I’m thinking I will either add an original piece of art or just some cool printable. What do you suggest?

You will find a lot of Monday morning posts from me about some great garage sale finds I’m excited about and I expect to find many of them of the summer.

I’m a garage-sale aficionado.

That’s it for today. I hope you all have a blessed one.
