I mentioned that I went to Connecticut last weekend to visit my family. I have yard-saled with my mom for years; it’s one of our favorite things to do together!
I thought I’d show you some of my fun finds. :)
This one girl was like me in another body. I loved everything she had – it was a toile extravaganza! If she weren’t several inches taller than me, I would have bought a lot more of her clothes – most from Target and totally cute. It was one of the most fun times I’ve ever had a sale – if I had more money I would have bought about $50 more worth of her stuff!
My mom and Chris said they were surprised I liked her stuff – my mom said she thought my style was more modern than country. I told my mom the curtains aren’t country, they’re traditional, which is definitely what my style is. These are my first toile purchases and I am loving them! The Nester would be so proud. ;)
4 Waverly curtain panels - $1 each
Coral and cream valence - $1
Crocs in my size - $1 (my first real pair and I don’t care how ugly they because ohmyword they are heavenly!)
Toile bag – she threw it in for free since I bought some more items that I can’t show you b/c they are part of Lindsay’s present. :)
The next girl also had some fun items – and for super cheap!
Large mirror with ledge on the bottom - $1
Glass pumpkin jar – $.50 (I have been looking for one of these to put fall candy in! My mom and I argued about who would get it in the driveway but I saw it first. ;)
2 Veggie Tales dvds, Elmo potty dvd, Baby Einstein Lullabies cd, instrumental Celtic music cd, and Vienna Boys Choir Christmas cd - $3 total
A few practical items from the next two sales (combined):
Seafoam bathmat for my beachy bathroom - $1
”Tupperware” container (I have two like this already and they’re great) – $.10
Large canning pot (so I can start making more than jam!) - $2
Last but not least, some free items!
Cool topper thing – I haven’t decided if I should keep it gold or paint it white
Cloth bag – actually from my mom :)
Magazine holder – you can’t ever have too much organization!
It was SO much fun – we went with my aunt, too, and we laughed a LOT. :)
