Last Thursday, a friend and I hit a tag sale that started at two o’clock in the afternoon. This start time gave me little time to shop but I planned it just right. I gave myself thirty minutes to shop before heading to the school to pick up my boys. It all worked out and I was super excited with my twenty dollars worth of finds. The sale started in the garage where I headed straight for the table of Christmas.
The first thing I grabbed was this ceramic Santa planter. It is by far the biggest I own. He stands at 1 foot tall.
Oh my! These ornaments were my next grab from the holiday table. A fun variety of different types of old fragile ornaments. There were more boxes of ornaments but I picked out my favorite and headed into the house.
Once inside I picked up this piece of Hull pottery for my mother’s collection. And although it was filthy I was very pleased with its $3.00 price tag!
After a quick and soft scrubbing with a magic eraser it looked like new!
Next I found a beautiful older large round mirror for $2.00! This mirror is already hanging above my sink in our quest bathroom.
The last thing I found at the tag sale was this antique football group photograph. It is big measuring 10″ by 15″ and is dated 1912. Not a bad find for $3.00.
After this tag sale I was good with not finding anything else the rest of the weekend, but why not give it a try? My sister and I headed to a citywide garage sale Saturday morning where the majority of our finds were toys for our kids. Ugh! But I did find this one amazing 1949 advertising calendar. It is now hanging in my bedroom and at just over 3 feet long it makes me smile every time I see it. It was the perfect $5.00 find! You never know what you might find if you just get out there and look!
