Garage Sale Finds
Well I went to garage sales by myself today. There was only 2 in town so I hit them up and headed out of town. I wont post all of my finds because that could take all night! My car is so loaded down when I am done that sometimes I dont get it all unloaded until the next day. Well I went to a couple of estate sales today and at the first one it was 50% off cause it had been running for a couple of days. I found this little primitive basket thats made out of cloth in the garage for a dollar. Well I dont know about how it is were you live but if things are not really important to the person running the estate sale they always put that stuff in the garage. I added some wooden spools into it and it looks very cute! I have another fabric bowl like this but it is huge and I have my little Boyds Bears stashed away in it. The large basket I got 2 weeks ago for a dollar as well. I stopped at the Goodwill on my travels and found this huge brand new Valentines teddy bear for 8.00. I also found this brand new Large heart pillow for 3.00 and this funny large black monkey with kisses on him for 1.99. I planned on putting these into my booth but my daughter snagged the pillow and let me have the stuffed animals to put into the booth, ty Katy! I went to yet another estate sale and purchased this vintage doll or baby dress for 5 bucks. I have a doll in mind to put this on. What caught my eye about this dress is you can tell it was never worn and still had the paper in the sleeves and under the dress, its also tagged Neiman Marcus! Last of all I found this Chenille Bunny Rabbit at a sale early at the wee hours this morning for 5 bucks. I plan on putting it into my booth as well but I see it has a spot on her dress, dont know what it is but I will try to get it out the best I can. This rabbit is very tall measuring in at least 5 feet tall so I had to throw its feet up by the thing for pictures. The detailing is so nice on this rabbit. Its whiskers is some type of frayed rope. You can see the spot on the dress in the close up photos. Oh yea speaking of photos I am so sorry I cannot figure out how to put these in order while im writing about these items but maybe I will get it soon so bear with me. See you tomorrow for a post on what my aunt gave me for Christmas! Goodnight!
