Garage Sale Find!

Earlier this week I posted about the Garage Sales Tracker, a great resource for bargain hunters and sellers. So, of course, when a big Garage Sale opened on our street this week, I had to walk down and see if there was anything.

IMG_5109 I was so excited at my find! This patio swing, that seats 2 and has a built in shelf with cup holders was only $10! I have always wanted a swing, but they sell for at least $100 new, so it wasn’t realistic for us to buy one. This one has a little wear, but once it is cleaned, and maybe a fresh coat of paint, it will look like new.

  • Thanks, Thrifty Mama! Wow, a Champion Juicer for $18! That is an amazing find! I love our juicer, but it was a hand-me-down, so I’m always watching for good deals since I don’t know how much longer it will last! :)

  • Thanks, Queen! We’ve already beening sitting out on the swing since it is out by the pool. The weather has been nice this weekend and great to be outside. Very peaceful!

  • Wow! I’ve been wanting a swing for my backyard, but also thought they were too expensive new. Nice find! I also was thinking about stopping at garage sales this weekend, but haven’t done it yet. Maybe I’ll have to check a few out very soon.

  • My best deal this week was a combo deal. I got 8 shirts for my son and 3 shorts for myself (all name brand), a rug for the kitchen, a giraffe costume for the baby, and a makeup bag for $5! I’m also a thrift store junkie and got a pair of real Crocs for $2 this week as well! LOVE the site! Grabbing your button and taking it to my page!

  • Melissa,
    You rule! that was a great find! I am jealous! LOL
    I love, love, love garage sale-ing!! Last weekend I got some great finds. this week I didn’t get a chance to stop at any of the 100’s of sales I past (whimper).
    I think my best all time garage sale find was a “end of the bed bench”. The woman who had it at her garage sale had just bought it earlier that week from JCP’s. It was beautiful! However, one of her kids had decided to use it as his lauch pad from jumping on her bed and broke one of the wooden slats under the seat. She was so angry that she was just going to throw it in the trash but, put it into her yard sale instead. I bought it for $2.00 and hubby removed the damaged slat and replaced it. It is perfect now!
