This weekend myself, Mr Joyful Thrifter, my brother and his wife, and my parents drove down to the Yearly Leona valley garage sales. It was so exciting because you stop at the local market and pick up a garage sale map. We followed the map to all the garage sales, and we found lots of wonderful treasures. Here are the lovely things I brought home.
To commemorate our move I took all of my pictures on a stack of moving boxes, and now I can't wait to move this Friday so I can pull out all of my lovely treasures again.
My first clear bottom Pyrex. It is in horrible shape, but was only $0.25 so I wanted to save it.
Another Bing crosby christmas albums. This one has such fun colors on the cover. I got this record for $1.00.
I found these wonderful wooden Merry Christmas blocks for $2.00 at a barn sale. This was the first barn sale I have ever gone to, and it is just as awesome as the other blogs make it out to be.
I also found the scale for $3.00 at the same barn sale.
I fell in love with this old invoice book. I only paid $0.25 for it. If I was planning a wedding I would use this as my guest book. Its so cute
Vintage ornament, which was given to me by the lady holding the garage sale.
Dominoes for $1.00. I want to make a birthday card with these.
When I dragged this bag to the truck Mr Joyful Thrifter looked so confused. I explained to him that this was the perfect new book bag. He couldn't get past the fact that it was a bag for tennis rackets. I saw the beauty in this old dusty gross bag, and I cleaned her all up.
The bag was so gross, but some armorall wipes helped get her all cleaned up. I must admit though that I did commission Mr Joyful thrifter to help me clean up the bag. He is great and making things look pretty again.
Oh I paid $2.00 for this wonderful bag.
Yes I already have a toaster, but it is not as awesome as this vintage green one. Plus it was only $1.00. I just could not resist.
It's so sweet
Lastly this is my strangest find. I found the first mouse cage at a garage sale, and then a few sales later I found the larger cage. How strange is that? Then a few more garage sales later I found a plastic one, but I did not buy that one. My question for you all is, what would you do with those cages? I have some ideas but I am curious to know your thoughts. My next question is would you have bought these cages? I paid $0.25 for the little cage and $4.00 for the bigger one.
I hope you all had a thrifty weekend, and found lots of treasures.
