Garage Sale Find



I have realized I love fall garage sales.

Most garage sales are in the spring/summer. But there are some major benefits to fall garage sales.

1. The weather is cool

I went to a couple of garage sales the other day. The leaves have changed color, it was a cool 70 degrees and it was beautiful!

2. You can finally sell your holiday decorations

You know at most garage sales people are trying to sell their Christmas and Halloween decorations. When you are sweating in 90 degree weather in July...Christmas and Halloween seem so far away. But with a later garage sale, you can buy these decor items and know you are going to use them soon.

I bought these ornaments (6 of them) for $1. Honestly, if it was June or July I might have just passed over them. But my mind is already planning ahead for the holidays! I decorate our tree with lots of snowflakes.

can be seen at Coastal Charm and Apron Thrift Girl
