There are a lot of reasons I love this time of year, but one reason is – I love garage sales! We can only shop garage sales from June till about September. The rest of the time it’s just too cold and rainy. So I love to take advantage of the good weather to get out and see what treasures I can find.
I really had fun at the sale pictured below.
To begin with – what a cute house! The yard and the wrap around porch was packed with things to look at and it was such a beautiful day. I had such fun – wish I could find more sales like this. I ended up going back to purchase an item I passed up the first time and was happy to find out it was still there waiting for me.
And look at this cute potting shed! There were two more similar houses on the property. The owner told me that her husband had built them out of old wood.
The first thing I spotted was this darling cup and saucer. I had to have it so grabbed it right away. I also bought a couple of bread plates. The one behind the cup and saucer and the matching one pictured below.
Then I picked up this cup and saucer and several more small dishes. I was so glad I decided to stop at this sale.
At another sale, I found this cute clock, flowers, book and plastic tablecloth that will be perfect for our summer picnics.
Another view of the clock.
And here is where it ended up. In one of my fireplace bookcases along with some flowers purchased at another garage sale. I love the quality of older silk flowers and plants so I like to pick them up whenever I find them.
Got this at the same sale as the clock. Such a cute picture of old time school children and it looks perfect next to my antique hoosier. I would have taken a picture, but we are in the process of painting our master bedroom and the hoosier is piled high with things from the bedroom so that will be for another post.
Here’s a closeup. So cute!
I always look forward to this time of year. I’m lucky – because Mr. CSD loves garage sales as much as I do so it gives us a chance to drive around, look at houses, find a treasure or two and just enjoy spending some relaxing time together. Hopefully this is the first of many great sales this year.
