Yard Sale Finds #4

I had a really lucky weekend! Yard sales were great. My couponing trips were great. Father's Day was great. I am happy!

We started out Friday, and there were only a couple. I got three brand new lamp shades (still wrapped) for $1 each, two decorative pumpkins for the fall for $1, a booster seat for $4, and a waffle maker for $3.

Saturday began slowly, but I made a great find at the end, which is when it counts!
I got the dress for $3 with the intentions of possibly using it for a wedding. The shirt was $1, and the tie was $0.10.
Brand new Sperry flip flops for $5! Awesome find!!
I picked up an old cheese grater for $0.25. I'll be repurposing it; I just don't know how yet!
I was just talking at work about finding silverware for the kitchen. What do you know, I was able to pick this handful up for $0.50. It doesn't matter that it's mismatched, because what they already have is, too.
And here's the best find...an umbrella for our back patio! I've been looking for two years, and I'm glad I waited. I think the brand is Brown Jordan, but it's raining right now, so I can't double check. Ryan and I looked it up online and they ranged in price from $1,000 to $5,000!! I paid $30 for it. It's beautiful, and sitting underneath it yesterday afternoon was just so wonderful. 
Sometimes it's annoying waiting to find the things you want, but it really does pay off to be patient.

    1. I have to do show and tell on here, because Ryan doesn't always act interested! It's more fun to share with people who are really excited about it. Although he did like the umbrella!

    1. I'm so glad I could re-inspire you! It took me two years to find this one. I found a stand last summer at a yard sale, and it just sat empty on our patio. I'm so glad I waited!

  8. We call them garage sales where I am... they are FUN! I went to a couple today. Found a pair of American Eagle flip flops for 25 cents and an Old Navy t-shirt for 50 cents. Might be a fun idea to write a post like you did on my garage sale finds. :)

    1. Those are awesome finds! My family always has "show and tell" after we go to yard sales or thrift stores, so this is my virtual version! Thanks for stopping by.
