Steals of the Weekend

On Friday, my friend and her tiny one and I, hit the country roads of Battle Ground, Washington for some garage saleing! It was a perfect sunny day, and I was without children to chase. Hoorah!  We had such a good time and I came home with some serious good deals. 
I was more than giddy over this first purchase of the day.  Seriously, $1.00?
My birthday cake will look wonderful in it next month!

A rusty royal blue tool box. 
It was to go in my Etsy shop, but I've since fallen in love with its hue.

I felt the curviture of this frame was nice--but it will most likely undergo a paint job.

Deal.  I've been wanting a rustic/industrial cubby system in my craft room.
And I'm loving how it looks on my table! 

 I also picked up a few other items--a yard of Spiderman fabric, a couple Nike t-shirts and a dress for Brooklynn, to which she then informed me, she does not want to wear clothes from a garage sale.  She's five.  Yeah.  And an 18x20 light turquoise frame for $0.50.  All to the grand total of about $17.00. 

Hooray for garage sales!  I'm now addicted.

On my way home I also came across two boutiques.  One called Real Deals that my Sis hits up practically weekly, in Missoula, Montana, and another called La Ti Da. 
I can't wait to venture back for some home decor!
Did you do any garage saleing or thrifting this weekend?
Any good scores?

I love garage sales, too! I've only gone once this summer and didn't really find anything good. Maybe I'll check some out this weekend. :) I love your finds!

such steals! that cake stand is gorgeous and i may or may not have searched for months to find a tool box just like that one! don't you just love a good garage sale day?

Oh, I'm so jealous about the cake stand. It looks like you could turn it upside down and make it into a trifle bowl. Yeay! And that drawer for your crafts looks perfect! All I find at garage sales are VHS cassettes for the grandkids and um, well, that's about it right now. I do have several furniture restoration projects in process; when I'm done with those I'll have room in my garage for some more projects to take on. Fun! BTW, we missed you on Saturday!! But your influence was felt. Love ya!

Whoa- the cubby system and the blue tool box both have my heart thumping. Great finds. I know what I'm doing this coming Saturday!!! :))

Love the cubby system drawer thingy, lol...awesome finds!!!

No garage saleing for me this weekend but hopefully I'll be having my own coming up soon. We have so much to get rid of but i wonder how quickly I'll part with some things ;-)

Love the name of that 1 store 'La Ti Da'

Love your finds, Hon! That's funny about how Brooklynn feels about wearing clothes from garage sales. Hmmmm, wonder where she inherited that from?????? Love you!

I'm so glad to have inspired a few of you to get out and score some steals!

Mom-Did she get that from me?? lol. Well, today, she is sporting one of her new Nike tees. I'd only buy her a quality garage sale tee. She should trust me on that. :)

we garage sale as often as we can, but since we are in a young new community don't get these awesome steals you get, or probably just don't have the eye for things you do

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
