Garage Sale Friday

The garage sales Friday were Ok, but not great.  I only made a few.  At the first one I got 2 books for my grandson.  I also got a thermal underwear top and bottom, new in the package, for my DH.  It's hard to think thermal when it's over 100 degrees.  But then you buy them as you find them.
At next garage sale I found a sweater and a shirt for me at $2.00 each.  Not pictured are 3 bags of buttons for 25 cents each.  I also got 10 hankies at 5 cents each.  I can see them as pockets on aprons.  My best find at this sale were the bedding samples.  I am thinking reversible aprons.  Each sample already has the co-ordinating fabric stitched together and trimmed with matching cording.  I think I can add a waistband , ties and a pocket and I will have a reversible apron.  The great part is that they were only 10 cents each.  She only had 9 of them, but I would have gladly taken more.
The last garage sale of the morning was at a local high school and was sponsored by one of the cheer groups.  It was packed out.  Lots and lots of clothes, but almost all were just piled on long tables and I didn't feel like fighting the crowd.  In the toy room, I did find the cute Playskool vacuum for my grandson.  It was only 25 cents and is so cute.  It talks and rolls its eyes when pushed.   My grandson  just turned 2 and is fascinated by brooms, mops, and anything to do with cleaning.  We tease him that his dream job when he grows up is to be a janitor.  I also found a new bottle of  Estee Lauder Youth Dew perfume for $1.00.  It is a little too heavy for me, so I think I will pass it on to someone else.
I will be out early tomorrow morning.  My husband, son, daughter-in-law, and grandson will be joining me.  More treasure await.

I will be adding this post to Today's Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality.  Drop by her blog and see what other "treasures" were found by other bloggers.
