So you can imagine my disappointment when this past Saturday turned up a big fat nothing.
Sure, there were signs and sales out, but nothing that I just HAD to have.
But you know what? Sometimes that happens! It actually makes the days that I DO find something exciting all that more special.
I had pretty much already conceded to that fact that this weekend was going to be a bust, but randomly, a SUNDAY moving sale ad on craigslist caught my eye. I figured I might as well go check it out since Chris was working this weekend and (since we had the house appraised last Friday for refinancing and our chateau was SPOTLESS) I didn't have any cleaning to do! I'm always down for a little driving around!
However, on my way, I was distracted by
Good thing I did because I actually found a couple cool things.
One was this 18"x12" old motorcycle sign.
I also found this little guy for Chris.

I also got this heavy iron Texas cut out for $3.
Another rustic piece that caught my eye was this wood and cast iron crate.
After leaving that sale on a high, I saw another sale going on (no sign, just stuff out on a lawn) and really liked this large solid wood frame.
Still trying to head to my original craigslist moving sale, the garage sale Gods must have been looking down on me since I saw random garage sale sign #3.
AND took a shining to this little lady...
Finally, about an hour+ after leaving home, I make it to my original destination... ... ... ... and everything was already picked over.
The only thing left was this guy.
For $100, I wasn't too interested, but after talking to the family and learning that it was a solid mahogany AND Chris and I sorta have been in the market for a new buffet, I took him home for $75. Chris isn't too smitten with it, so I may just resell it... BUT if I REALLY want to go crazy with it, I may put on new legs along with some new pulls... we'll see how it goes.
So, to sum up the weekend, Saturday was a stinker and Sunday was a savior.... Who knew that Sunday could be the new go-to day for yard sales?!
Did you guys get any scores or deals this weekend? Has anyone else had random luck on Sundays? I would love to hear from you!
