It’s that time of year . . . rummage sales and garage sales galore! I’m not a big rummage sale / yard sale goer – but there is one I go to every year without fail. My grade school/old church have the biggest and BEST rummage sale every year that I’ve ever seen. Every year I walk out with amazing things. I always go on the morning of the first day. They charge a cover. Yup. So much good stuff they charge you to get in in those first hours. And I gladly pay it (along with hundreds of others).
I went straight to the athletic/outdoor section. (It’s pretty scary that I still remember where they put everything.) Was looking for a bike trailer for Gwyn to sit in while Connor and I bike around the lake. They had several jogging strollers, one kangaroo seat for a bike, but no trailers. But Connor did find one thing he was looking for. . . . A SKATEBOARD.
He was so excited! I was too because I found these amazing chairs!
They need a bit of work. It looks like whoever owned them last had a small dog or cat. The bottom of a couple legs are scratched up a bit, but no matter. I can fix that. Also with some new fabric for the seats and I’ll have some nice “new” chairs for the kitchen.
Gwyneth came away with two big treasures – a kitchen (which looked brand new)
It was immediately used making lunch for us.
She also got a gorgeous, huge wooden dollhouse.
I love how it opens!
Even the little door!
I didn’t even look at a tenth of what was at the sale, but even still I had to make two trips with the minivan to get it all home. What are your recent rummage sale or yard sale finds?
I just recently spent $12 at a garage sale (friday) and got a brand new bike for my 11 year old, two pairs of Keen sandles (They were worn once, maybe), 4 Zu-Zu’s complete with ‘combat gear’ and 6 books, including two of my son’s very favorite…. I Spy! It was such a huge score that I felt I needed to go home, but I stopped by ONE more on my way and found an antique rocking chair for $5!! I just KNEW my luck was out for the day so I went home and took a nap after that… and woke up to wash and place all our wonderful ‘new’ stuff. 🙂
my mom and i always loved going to a flee market as they are called over here. i still do with my own kids and they always seem to find the most precious things knowing i am looking for them! that dollhouse looks wonderfull, would it be possible if you send me some messurements from it? my girl wants a dollhouse like that one for ages and after seeing the picture keeps asking for that one….greetings from the Netherlands
