Garage Sales in Grass Lake (and other finds)

Hooray for garage sales (or yard, or tag, or estate, or um, any sale really)!

Here's some of my latest finds:

Found this spinning craft caddy at St. Vincent de Paul for $5.  I have one just like it below, and was looking for another one.  I did a happy dance when I saw it.

I have an OCD type obession with Distress Inks.  And labeling.

Aren't all those ribbons visually pleasing?
Here's some mistinted paint from Sherwin Williams.  2 qts for $4 total (The guy said these would have cost $40 off the shelf)

A whole bunch of stuff! A spice rack for $2 and 3 glass canisters for .50 each (I plan on painting them and filling them with crafty crap), some styrofoam balls for $1, a free 12 cup coffee pot that was hardly used (thanks mom and dad), a bottle of Chanel Chance eau tendre perfume for $5 from my friend Nicki's garage sale (thanks Nicki), a bottle of some old Avon perfume in carnival glass for .25 (to be smashed and used in a future mosaic), and some Martha Stewart ribbon for .10.

A whole crapload of envelopes in various shapes and sizes from a Craigslist ad for $15

3 trays, 1 sewing pattern, and 14 stamps for $20 at a garage sale

So grand total = $53.85

Have you found any good deals lately?


  1. Awesome finds! You really scored! I need to go thrift shopping very soon! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Wow, that is a great haul. Although, you better slow down or you'll have more to move ;-)

    Thanks Lindsay, I hope you find some FAB deals out there! It's kind of rainy here, so I'm not sure the weekend is gonna cooperate with me!

  4. @- Brittany

    Good point Brittany! I'll try to find small things };-) We'll see if I have the time (or $) to go out this weekend!

  5. Awesome finds! I never see nice stuff like this (for such a small $ amount) - I need to shop with you!

  6. @Junky Vagabond

    I wish we could go shopping! Hey there's a bunch of antique and junk shops down here if you're in the mood for a visit ;-)


I love to hear your comments! I read and appreciate every single one!
