It's Saturdays like this that I love! A garage sale on every corner...and good ones at that! I found myself wanting to ask...WHY on earth are you selling that?" ...but of course I did not. I bargained a bit..but I didn't do much of that because everything was beyond reasonable. How can one ask someone to go lower when the prices are...amazing!
NOT to mention the fact that it was 70 degree's outside...clear blue skies with the mountains clear and crisp and gorgeous! A perfect November Fall day here in Southern California!
Here is a sort of overall view of what I bought..with a few things missing.
One of the missing items is this little clay bunny dish that caught my eye. At first I was sort of iffy about it...but on closer look...he came home with me. I think it was...the red ribbon.
There were two of these rooster plates. Like I need more roosters...but they are indeed my weakness!
I bought them with the hangers. The pale yellow with the touches of red ..well..you know...
I bought both for $3.00! Hangers included! Now I ask you.... :)
Who knows...I just love blue and white and it was only $1.00!! So in the trunk it went.
This was big and sturdy and holds a lot. I have some but not as large as this and I am running out of room.
$1.00! :) Yep, the tools were included! I didn't need them...but remember, I have lots of Grands that are just beginning to start their lives AND I love to give them things..
When they come to visit...they can load up their cars. :)
These nice sturdy glasses matched others that I have bought...and..they are half the size. PERFECT!
You see, Sugar Pie Honey is always asking for half a glass of iced tea and a full one of these is HALF of what the usual ones hold...so...there you have it!
25 cents each!
Four neat little sauce dishes...I can always use these when I am cooking... GREAT for measured ingredients.
25 cents each!
A not so unusual salad bowl... .50 cents.
....and the little bowls added...which I didn't know were like the salad bowl..
25 cents for each dish... Total for the set was $3.00! NOT bad! (I mean $2.50! :)
I love mixing bowls..and this one was so neat to mix scrambled eggs in...
Did I need it...no...but for 25 cents I decided I could use it.
Not exactly Fitz and Floyd but this little lidded pumpkin cute..for 25 cents...it came with me also...I mean it IS still Fall...
I took my pictures with the flash as it was night time when I decided to do this post. Excuse the glare.
It really is pretty greenery but it sort of faded in the bright light. $1.00 for this ..and it's nice to have things like this when you want them.
I thought this was nice and it was only $1.00 also. Same sweet seller!
So...that was my Saturday. Oh...yes...I also bought three tops to wear under my shirts...one is a soft melon color, the second is a pretty yellow and the last one is black and the cutest style. I LOVE black. I also bought a nice white shirt and everything fit perfectly and was like brand new. High end department store items...and I am pleased.
Each T was a dollar..and the white long sleeve shirt was just 25 cents.
I call that a really good "garage sale" Saturday...
And of course there was breakfast after, with hot coffee, hash browns, wheat toast and over easy eggs!
Oh...not to forget the fresh orange juice...and a nap when I got home!
Love and hugs,
...so...tell me...was there one on every block where you live? :)
I nearly forgot! This lovely Beatrix Potter book...So large and lovely...
JUST 25 cents!
