Garage Sale Find

I don't go to many garage sales, but I want to.  Does that count.  I haven't seen very many exciting ones around here.  There was a sale at a nursing home, so I stopped.  I had hoped that there were some old quilts. 
A few little old ladies were sitting in their wheelchairs oblivous to what was going on and one of their caretakers running the sale. 
Trust me nothing exciting.  I saw a little box for 75 cents that had the blue frames and bud vase.  The guy said if I saw anything he would make me a deal.  SO  I saw this and gave him a dollar and told him to keep the change.  He looked at me funny, hah.  So that's how I do garage sales........I'm quite the bargainer, right. 
Anyway, I really liked these when I unpacked them .  The flag will be replaced and pictures will go in the frames.  Cute,aren't they.
I am feeling much better, yeah.  My grandbabies won't be arriving from Colorado today.  Hubby home from work as he had originally took the day off to pick them up at the airport.  It will be okay.  We will see them soon.

What a haul for a dollar! I love garage sales but the good thrift stores are still my favorite. I go to way too many of both and so I will be opening an etsy shop soon to weed things out. Maybe you and hubby should do something special with each other today with the bonus day off. Have a great one.

I'm hoping to get to more garage sales myself this summer. Enjoy your sweetie--you'll see your grandbabies soon enough when everyone's healthy. Take care of yourself :)

I don't go to many garage sales - I hate getting up early on the weekend! You did good - very pretty stuff!

I'm like Manuela, I don't go to many. I'm up pretty early, but want to savor my coffee!
