I have a friend in Franklin who posts here about her yard sale finds. She is an inspiration to me often finding new items in excellent condition. It might be the demographic of the neighborhoods she hits up. My neighborhood is a little different here in St. Louis, but I am still able to find some great stuff.
Anyways, I honestly couldn't believe my luck this week and had to share it with all of you. This morning, I originally set out for one purpose only: find a lamp! There is no overhead lighting in our living room, and it's been quite the challenge lighting the place without sacrificing style for cost. Through craigslist, I found out about a vintage sidewalk sale a few miles from my house. I walked away with this lamp for $5.
On the way home, I stopped at two other places, spent only $3.80 and got all of this:
Wooden puzzles for Eli
Tea Kettle. We almost bought one new but I am SO glad we didn't. This one was $0.25!
A Scrabble beach towel
Books for Eli including 3 Arch Way books!
Brand new in the box electric train set for $1.00! Eli will love this! It's a great toy for a rainy day.
Picture frames are one of those things you want, but cannot justify spending $7.99 for just one when you KNOW you can get them for $0.25 each!
While I'm at it, I want to share my greatest deal from last week. It is a men's Banana Republic down ski coat that I got for Dan. It was only $5 and practically brand new!
