Garage Sale Treasures

Okay, I'm going to change this up a little. Maybe if I call it Garage Sale Treasures I can get somebody to link up with me. Am I the only one garage saling right now? Ahhh...come on...I'm begging here...anybody? :o) Okay, I'll stop with the pressure, but if you would like to share what you got at Garage Sales, or thrift stores, this week--LINK UP! Today started out kind of dull. We chased a lot of dead end signs. That happens sometimes. But when we did finally find a live one, it was a great one! This is one of the items we had on our list--A new trike for Laffy Taffy. They sell these Radio Flyer foldable trikes at Walmart for 39.95. We got it for $7.00. I can't believe somebody didn't snatch it up before us! He loves it!

I can't even believe this find. It was the only book like it at the sale. Initially I thought I would resell it, but I think I'll do a blog giveaway with it instead. Four of my children have learned to read using this book! It's wonderful!

I found this lovely blue scarf for $1.00 too. I found some beautiful green silk pillows at another garage sale, each $1.00. I didn't find any clothes today, but I did find some fun jewelry. I NEVER buy jewelry, but one lady was done with her jewelry selling business and was selling her stuff really cheap. I bought a lovely pair of earrings for .50 (new) and a fun bracelet.
My son, Banana Taffy, found a Jesus Freaks Book. He is currently reading Vol. 2 and he found another Vol. 2 at a garage sale today, so he is hosting a giveaway on his blog. He would love for you to check it out! :o)
Happy Hunting!
Mrs. Taffy

  1. Cool finds! Maybe I'll see some garage sales tomorrow! I tried to "link up" with my thrift store finds but it was too hard for me. They wanted two url's. duh, I didn't know what to do! I am so helpless.

  4. I need to get garage sailing or "yard sales" as we call them down here.... Even though most are in garages...LOL

    I really need to go. Maybe next time I go and if I buy anything I'll link up.

    BTW... I wanted to mention on my blog, how I really like your gardens. I really do! You are so talented. Seriously thinking of doing a garden right now in my life seems so overwhelming. Well lots of things feel this way. Maybe I need to "chat" about it on my blog. LOL

    I am glad you have been enjoying listening to me ramble and my life story....

    WE'll talk soon...

    Love ya!

    I soooooo want to enter for that book! I let a new to schooling homeschool mom borrow my book and I never got it back - I think she lost it...grrrr! Anyway, I have been wanting to replace that book...so I can't wait to enter to win!

    Great post...cool finds...good job!

  7. I love garage sales, but they don't have them in the UK. So, I'll be posting mostly about charity (thrift) shop finds, which are just about as good. The post I just linked up here is actually about a church rummage sale I went to--it was even better than charity shops. Anyway, I can't wait to get back to the US this summer so I can go to yard/garage sales again! Oh, by the way, I've also used that same book to teach 2 of mine to read--my daughter just finished it--great find!
