Garage Sale Finds


Posted on Aug 7, 2007

I haven’t been going to garage sales as much as I’ve wanted to this year.  On Saturday, I was out running errands and saw a sign for a block garage sale.  I stopped by since it promised to have many sales in one area.  Overall, it was pretty disappointing.  I love to get books at garage sales and nobody had any.  Don’t people read anymore?  My luck changed when I got both Anne of Green...

The only thing I bought when I went to garage sales with my family on Saturday was this perpetual calendar.  I bought it for a quarter.  I have no idea when this was made, but it’s the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time.  It’s in perfect working condition.  By turning the top towards yourself the day changes.    At the end of 31 days, it prompts you to change the month down...

Yes, another craft book.  I’m trying to not buy everyone that I see.  This crewel book is amazing.  I found it at Goodwill for a couple of bucks.  Some of the patterns are a bit dated, but I think they could be easily updated.  Some patterns have come back into fashion.  The coolest thing about this book is written at the bottom of the cover.  It has iron-on transfers for every pattern. ...
