A few weeks ago I wrote about some of the clothes that I found at a recent garage sale. If you missed it, you can find that post here. I wanted to share some more fun stuff that I have come across in recent weeks.
Jim and I really like old glass like depression and milk glass. I am actually starting to run out of spots to put it all so I think I need to slow down, but I have really found some pretty stuff for really good prices.
The pink bowl/plate was 5 dollars and the green plate, which is apparently the sandwich glass, was 2 dollars.
These are some different cocktail glasses that I have found. Since we started doing Fun Fridays, we realized that we really needed some new drink glasses. This is something I always find at sales so this was a fun challenge for me.
The brandy snifters are really pretty and I think I got six of them and paid two dollars a glass. They are Mikasa and in a store these would retail for about $20 each. They are really pretty and quite heavy. The martini glasses were a quarter each. They are very nice, but not anything real special. Probably like something you would find at Crate and Barrel. The shaker was also a quarter and it’s pretty solid and works really well. The utensils don’t really go with this picture but I happened to buy them on the same day. Since I send hot meals in with the girls about once a week to school I always seem to be missing spoons. I found these Pfaltzgraff spoons and knives for a dime a piece.
The cosmo or martini glasses were a great find. They are really heavy and the glass has pretty little bubbles in it. I bought the whole set for 5 dollars and there were eight of these.
This next piece is milk glass and I use it as a fruit bowl (which I guess is really what it is supposed to be.) I love this bowl and it sits on my countertop all of the time with bananas or apples in it. It looks really nice with some red apples:-). I paid 10 dollars for this.
These are my pool bags that I have used this summer. I paid a dollar for each bag and believe me, I have gotten my two dollars worth with these.
Vera Bradley bags. The brown bag I paid 13 dollars for, but it’s a nice big duffle that was hardly used. I love this brown and teal pattern. My daughter has a lunch bag in the same pattern. The backpack and the little purse I think I paid 3 and 1 dollar for respectively. My daughters really like Vera Bradley purses because they are so colorful. They probably have about 4 or 5 bags like these that we have picked up at sales.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did! I think one of the keys to getting the most out of garage sales is to find good quality items that are in good condition (and at a good price.) I am pretty picky about the sales that I go to and the items that I buy. I have gotten some amazing items at sales and I will do some more posts in the upcoming weeks with more of my finds. I am saving my favorite items for a post that I will have in a week or two. When I do, you will be amazed at some of the things that I have come home with and the prices I have paid. Just wait:-)….are you as excited as I am??????
