My favorite time of year is rolling back around... spring... which means YARD SALES!
Last year I scoured yardsales for wedding finds (Yard Sale Beauts). This year it's for our house!
Since we got the house in September (Home Sweet Home) there was one thing I've been dieing to have for our kitchen. Our house has a country feel to it and I thought that a cute little baker's rack would be perfect for the one wall. Unfortunately, prices are about $149 for them. (Not an option.) I was surfing Craigslist last weekend and there was a local yardsale (7 miles away) that said there was a baker's rack for sale. So, I was one of their first customers the next morning.... and guess how much.................
So, I moved it in, and filled it with what I had on hand. Above it I have strings with wedding pics held to them with mini clothes pins. Over Christmas it held our Christmas cards :)
Yesterday was a mega-yard sale day with my mom. :)
Here's my winnings:
Spiderman 3 Blu-ray, Prayer of Jabez Book, Make-up purse, Pampered Chef veggie steamer, LEGO TABLE, Black and Decker tool playset (for future children- $1)!!!, 2 crates for the front porch, shorts for my stepson, shirt for me, Nerf board, Home Sweet Home sign, and a hilarious game where you toss bulls and earn points for what position they land in. :)
Grand total........ $18!!!!
Life is good. I love sales. :)
