Addicted to Garage Sales

Hi my name is Melissa and I am addicted to Garage Sales. I am so excited to share my  great deals with all of you. I was fortunate to go to 3 neighborhood garage sales and a barn sale. 

This is what my little, 1999 Saturn looked like after I hit the garage sales. It was tricky getting that wicker chair in the front seat but by golly I did it. Notice the chair leg sticking out of the window. I had to roll the window down and leave it down in order to get this puppy to fit. At least it didn't rain until the last 5 minutes of my drive home.

Here are some group pictures of all the treasures that I found. I am loving this wicker chair and table. I have already spray painted it and will post about it when I get a chair pad for it.
Here are some close up pictures. I love those ice skates, they are going to be used at Christmas time for decoration. The 2 little tea light lanterns are going to be so cute on my patio.  I have always liked globes but I did not want a big one, found this little guy and it looks perfect on my foyer table.
 I also found 2 jean skirts. I bought them both because I couldn't decide between the two of them.  One is from Old Navy and the other is Silver.  Also, found this black Coach purse for $10.00. I am not sure if it is a real Coach or not but it was still a cute purse.

Here is a better picture of the wicker table.


Total Costs:
Wicker Chair = $10.00
Wicker Table = $10.00
Coach Purse = $10.00
(2) Tea Light Lanterns = $2.00
Ice Skates = $3.00
(2) Denim Skirts = $3.00
Mini Globe = $.25
Total = $38.25

  7. Okay I have to laugh. You should have seen my car on Saturday. It is small but fortunately 4 doors and let's just say that it is a good thing I am small because a lot of my treasures sometimes are in the driver's seat with me. Honestly, I need a truck, or maybe make that a U-haul. Thanks for sharing. I love the wicker.

I laughed, I had a Saturn and the fact that you crammed that stuff in there....you must have looked like Sanford and Son driving down the street lol! Love all your finds...the skates...I saw someone at X-mas time hang them on a sled and put near their front door...it was so cute. Thanks again...are you painting the wicker table?:)
