Garage Sale Goodness

Today was such a nice day I went garage sale-ing! YAY! I headed out pretty late, so I wasn't sure what all would be left but I think I found some gems!

The most exciting one was finding this stool! I love it! It's so cute with it's little bean-shape! The legs are actually wood, and they're pretty tight too. It's so retro and great, but I do plan to re-do the whole thing. It was so unique I couldn't pass it up!

Here's what the top looks like close up. Pretty neat, but it's vinyl-y (not cracked however) but I think I'd like to re-cover it.

The next thing I found was this great old violin music. I figured i'd use it for scrapbooking, cards, inchies, etc. It was such a good deal, couldn't pass it up!

And yes, I did have to show it off on the cute little stool!

Lastly, I picked up this little tray to paint!

Here's the grand total of stuff that I bought!

The best part? IT WAS SO CHEAP. And for me to say stuff was cheap, it's dirt cheap. I'm probably the cheapest person out there.

I spent a grand total of .... are you ready???

$2.50!!!!! No jokes!

Stool: $2
Music: $0.25 (I almost bought more, but restrained myself!)
Cork: $0.25
Tray: FREE! (again, they had 4 of these, I wanted to take them all, but I find that karma really is at work in the universe, and when receiving free gifts, it's really best to take only what you need)

So there you have it! Stay tuned to see what I make of my findings!

  7. Hi Jill, Awesome finds, I recently have been doing some thrift shopping and have found some awesome things. Love the violin music, wish I could find some but I haven't had any luck finding any music sheets so I've had to resort to printing my own.
