Garage Sale Finds

Beautiful fake plant. Is that an oxymoron?

These are the awesome bases of the slide out drawers that come from the Container Store.

I later have purchased 3 other ones, again at $5 each.

Considering the Container store has them for a TON more, not to shabby.

Thread holder $2

$3. I had walked away b/c she wouldn't come down on price. I liked it, but I didn't have to have it. When she went down to $3. I had to have it.

Foliage $4

More foliage; this one cascades. $4

This came from Goodwill $2.50

My crystal collection:

Goodwill $1.75

This one was from Goodwill. $1.50


Bowls. These were hard to find. Most people want to much for them. I believe I got this one for

This piece was so heavy and cute.
I will flip it over and use it as a candle holder.
Best part $.50 cents.

I got two of these lamps at a garage sale. $5 each.
The wine holder I got for free.

My husband convinced me that this would replace the all expensive bind it all. I'm not so sure yet, but we'll see. She wanted $20. However, it was the end of he garage sale and so she practically begged us to take it at $5.

I don't necessarily love this print. I do love the frame. $2.

This was free. I added the tea lights. It is a fountain as well so I need to find a power cord for it.

Nice black lamp. $5.

A couple of items in this picture are garage sale finds.
The lamp which as a beautiful base. $3.
The plant in a basket. $5.
The table TV trays with the rack that holds them all. $7.

$3 for this really cool piece. I also got a TON of decorating books at this sale that were hardcover and $2 each. I regret not spending more time at this sale. It was mostly girl stuff so hubby was ready to get other sales.

I love wrought iron pieces. I had a wooden one but love this one so much better.
I splurged on this one.

Ice Tea Maker. Completely brand new in box. This was a steal at $2. I had wanted one of these for a while, but never made the plunge. Now that I don't drink Diet Soda anymore, I need to find other ideas for what to drink. It was so funny because Dave said, "Oh, do you really need that"...LOL Well guess who is the biggest fan of this revolutionary ice tea system... that's right - Dave... :)

I got two of black decorative shelves. They remind of large scallop edges. And, as we know scallops are hot right now.. These were $3 each.
