Garage Salen Days Drifting Away!

Well folks, I can tell that summer is just about over with because the garage sales are dwindling and so am I.  I love garage saleing, but I have not wanted to get up early nor have I wanted to deal with the heat. I went to two garage sales this weekend and I went to Goodwill's 50% off sale. I could have went to more garage sales but Goodwill was air conditioned.  Here are a few of the finds from this weekend.

This cabinet was the only thing I bought at the garage sales.  It was $25.00 and is very well made.  It is a lot heavier than it looks. I have a little craft area set up in our basement and I am planning on using this cabinet to store all of my supplies.  I am not sure if I am going to paint it or leave it as is. I kind of like the sage green color!

All of this other stuff came from Goodwill! The glasses were 12 cents a piece. You just can't beat those prices.  I have seen these types of state glasses all over the place in blogland and in magazines.  I only have 48 more states left to collect.

The sundae dishes are perfect for my little nieces and nephews.  They are going to love visiting their Aunt Melissa!

One for the money, two for show and three to get ready! Can you name that tune?  I just thought these glasses were too cool for words!

I got this wood tray for $2.00. I think it will look pretty with some fall decorations sitting on it!

Cute little sleigh for a $1.00! It says it was made by Hallmark cards...I think it might get a coat or two of spray paint.

And finally a little bucket that I picked up for $1.00. This is definitely getting spray painted!

I hope you are all having a good week! I am looking forward to the 3 day weekend with my family.  I can't believe summer is coming to an end.
