Garage Sale Finds

My SpoilsI heard $3 billion is spent at garage sales in the US each year. That's a lot of quarters!

Garage Sale #1
Weight Watchers scale (guesstimating ebayable's weight is for lamers!) .75 cents
Funky hand thrown vase .75 cents
Glass pitcher with insert, still with new stickers .75 cents
12 Napkin rings .50 cents (Cuteness trumps practicality yet again!)
2 White porcelain candle stick holders $1
Pewter candlelabra $1

Looking at this makes my inner fangirl giggleGarage Sale #2
This was a funny sale. The guy had just married and was outside selling all the stuff his wife didn't like! Luckily his pre-marriage tastes match mine :D
Silver kitchen clock $1
2 New black oven mitts $1
New black pizza cutter .50 (not pictured)

Garage Sale #3
Harry Potter Erised vanity mirror $2 - More than I would normally pay for such a silly item (I'm going to be 31 this year!) but it was gaudily cute with latin inscribed - plus every room should have an unexpected element right? ;)

Garage Sale #4
That white bulb covvery thing that I'm going to replace on my ceiling fan .25 cents
Sundry Christmas decorations (boxxed and stored before I pictured) $1.75

I think I like the mirror the best, of all your finds! You're right, it's unexpected, and that makes it cool!

Honestly, as a 36 yr old HP fan, I think the mirror is cool. And 2 bucks wasn't bad either!

Sue said...

Anny, You cracked me up calling the light fixture a "bulb covery thingy!" You paid so little for a lot. I especially like your whimsical mirror and the clock!
