I got out on Thursday for my dentist appointment. I ended up driving past a garage sale. I was at a point that I couldn’t stop or I’d be late for the dentist so I noted where the sale was and went on to the dentist.
After the appointment I debated about going back…What’s protocol for a woman who just lost her husband? Do you go garage saling???
That’s when I remembered who MY husband was and he’d likely be yelling from heaven, “STOP….it’s a good one. Go to the garage sale.” So I did.
I’m happy I did….I ended up finding some more homespun and other things.
There were eight fat quarters here…$5. It’s more expensive than the thrift store but it’s still a great deal.
I got this small game board that I’ll use for decorating once I get the living room done. It was $2 but much cheaper than if I got it at Hobby Lobby.
My favorite find was this….
You can’t tell from the bad pictures but it’s an old carpenter’s tool box. The patina on it is great.
It has some fun features like this…
See the little hook closure?
Then there is this little divot for me to put my finger in to open it.
It isn’t very deep. That’s okay. Right now I’m thinking it will stay in the living room and I’ll keep my current cross stitch project in it but we’ll see.
If I don’t end up using it or finding a spot for it, I’ll sell it. I know there’s a guy at the antique mall that has a booth that this would be perfect in.
That was my garage sale adventure. It was a good one!!
