Neighborhood Garage Sale

April 19, 2012


Even though I was terribly sick last week, I still forced myself to get up early on Saturday to visit my neighborhood’s annual garage sale. The things I do for cheap crap…

I was on a mission to find a sofa table and a cute lamp, so my friend Johanna and I drove around (the lazy person’s garage sale-hunting) until we found something good. Although I didn’t find what I was looking for, I still managed to buy some pretty awesome items for a whopping $8. (it was technically $9 total, but I didn’t have change so I borrowed $1 from Johanna – I still owe you by the way! :D)

Here were my finds:


{ManFiancé lovessss to fish, and even though he HATES sailboats, he loves knots. Weirdo. I had to get something to pacify him as I spent all of our money. :) $3}

{The perfect glass jar for the wine corks I save, but I also plan on it using for the candy bar at the engagement party. Also a great glass for vino, perfect after a long day at work. Not kidding. $1}

{Johanna found this gem – a tiki hut beverage dispenser – perfect for white-girl sangria, and totally using it for our engagement party. $5. Bonus: inside were plastic ice cubes, drink stirrers and coasters}

 {Creeptastic life-size golfer. I was sold on the mustache.}

 {I would’ve so bought this if I had kids… I was even thinking about getting it for myself. What of it.}
