Weekend of Wonderful

I have officially discovered the joys of Garage Sale-ing. This is another in a growing list of parties to which I am late. But Saturday was perfect for three hours of driving and walking through a neighborhood full of garage sales with Ben and Emily in tow.

For the bargain price of $2.50 I got...

 Four articles of vintage clothing with gorgeous, harvestable fabrics and trimmings
Look at this lace.

And those buttons.

 And the overall yumminess that is 1993!

Further down the road, the dude all but jumped out of his skin when he saw me eying a pile of lovelies at the outer edge of his sale items. He literally ran to his wife and back to me asking $7.00 for

18 Wedding Magazines
$7.00. That is the price of this magazine alone.

If I take the average price of these babies and add them all up, I saved $100.82.  Just think of all the inspiration and wedding tips hiding between those pages just waiting for me to share them with you!

Oh, but that's not all. For the bargain price of $10.00 I got

Wait for it.

Scroll a little bit more.


My very own sewing table.

Don't worry, it has legs. Hopefully I can get them back on this puppy have my machine happily humming from it's new mount by tomorrow,  And did you see the hardware?!

I'm no expert, but I don't really think you can find tables like this at your neighborhood craft store. $19.50 worth of happiness says April is off to a great start. I may have found another new addiction.

Tell me, what was your greatest garage sale, flea market, antique store find?
