The days are longer, the sun is out earlier, and the garage sales are better than ever.
Enter this past weekend.
Chris and I had talked about getting more seating for the patio (like the AWESOME couch we found at a garage sale two weeks ago for $60) so we added two of the new chairs to see if it would go.
our rocking chairs and little Pottery Barn chair/table set, it looks a bit... ummm... well, I guess just a bit to eclectic for our taste.
The next little item I found was at my last stop for the morning; an estate sale.
Estate Sale tip: As the sale progresses, most tend to run discounts per each day... ie Thursday (full price as marked), Friday (30% off), Saturday (half off!!)
Such was the case when I found this cedar chest/trunk.
However, I only had $39 on me so put on my best pouty face and promised it would be going to a good home. Sold.
Chris has been asking for something for the foot of the bed for a while (he doesnt like having to sit on the floor to put on his shoes... ... psh, so needy...) so I figured the trunk would work there (especially for $39!)
Don't get me wrong, its a very pretty piece...
|Totally big enough to hid |
All in all, not a bad weekend. Not everything found at garage sales will work 100% of the time, but the hunt (and the price) totally makes it worth it.
Did anyone else garage sale hunt this weekend? Has anyone else bought something they were super psyched about then got it home and it just didnt work? What do you guys think of the chairs/trunk? Yes? No?
I would love your feedback!!
