Garage Sales + Good Friends = Good Times


This weekend was pure Bliss! Not only did I beat the heat at the longest garage sale but I had two sidekicks to share the fun! I'm sure you know Rhoda on the left and Layla on the right.I'm the short one in the middle.

We had to enforce a few rules along the way...no hair pulling,biting,nor name calling if you didn't get to it first. Luckily, we were true ladies the entire trip and had no need to use enforcements. Although Layla and I did rock,paper,scissors for this sign. Come to find out...it didn't work for either of us.


We came upon some very neat finds like this shutter shelf.

Not only did we see plenty of neat objects, we came across some cuties like "Cosmo" the wonder dog!

Now how can you pass up these cuties!

If this desk would have been about 250.00 cheaper I would have brought it home to stay...awwww..

Interesting people were along the way. This gentleman was teaching Miss Rhoda how to tell the weather. He also gave us each a lucky penny and a hand painted thumbtack. A girl just cant get luckier than that!

It was fun to watch these girls in action!

These wooden spools..oh my! Layla and I both brought some of these home. Sweet!

So after our adventure we headed back to Rhoda's house and fell fast asleep only to wake up early and jump back in the saddle. We hit an Estate sale in a beautiful subdivision and after that we found a few more treasure at a antique mall. Rhoda found an extra special treasure but I will let her tell you all about it! This is what you get when you mix bloggers and shopping..hehe!

Can you guess what I bought out of this picture?

This was my first trip to a HomeGoods store. Can you believe that! I didn't walk away empty handed..no sir E'
What a great time we shared! Nothing compares to friendships made along the way.

After you see "The End" hang around for a few more seconds if you wanna see another blooper ... Thanks Layla... I've never been a blooper before...hehe.

  8. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    You are adorable in the video! Looks like your girls had a great time, wish we all could have been there *smiles* Love your vintage typewriter and $12 is a great price. Mine was originally $28 and I got it for half price at a antique shop. I'll have to find the link for replacement ribbons and send it to you *smiles* Can't wait to see what you do with the spools!

  10. Hi! I'm sure you had a grand time at The World's Longest Yard Sale! My husband and I spent Friday at there (but in Ohio), and it was a perfect day in every way! We found some great finds as well!

    I scrolled through your blog and just love all your creative ideas! The ruler/hook shelf is awesome! I might have to give that one a try!

    I am going to add you to my blog list so that I don't lose you!

    Take care,

    Polly

  12. Wasn't that SO much fun?? This was one of the best weekends I've had in ages, I loved having you here. What a blast! Watching that video was fun reliving it all again. I'm stealing one of your pics too. I totally missed a pic of the black table that I loved so much.

    Have a good week, girlfriend!

  23. Okay, I'm back after seeing the video. As soon as I saw that last item, I knew it was a typewriter, before you got across the road!! My typing teacher told us, we were the typewriters, the "typewriter" was the typing machine!:-) Anyhoo....when I was in high school (back when dinosaurs really roamed the planet), we had a Smith-Corona Typewriter,like that one, in a lovely green! Brought back a memory.

    I also have to tell you, I love the signs!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aw, that looks like such a fun time! Not only is garage saling fun, but you were able to get out with some cute bloggers too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh it looks like you all had a great time. I loved the video!!

  29. Hi Susie,

    I just wanted to say I am so glad to have found your blog! I was over at The Letterd Cottage and when I saw the picture posted, I just screamed! You had my shirt on!!! I have never seen anyone else with that shirt and that shirt can only come from one place, one of my most favorite places to shop ever, The Queen Bee! I just love your blog and all your signs. I am always looking for someone to flea with. I am always on Range in Denham. I am sure you have been. It's so fun! We should meet up, girl!

    I just started my blog a few days ago, but would love for you to stop by and check it out.

    So glad to have found you!

    Love that typewritter you bought! I had one just like that in a box when I was in college. ( Dark ages when there were no computers!!)

  47. That cracked me up when you picked up the urinal. That’s why I have a hard time looking at stuff without my arsenal of hand sanitizer!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That video is so cute! I watched it over at Rhoda's...and I had to agree with Layla when you picked up that...that...thing! Get the hand sanitizer!!! :D So glad y'all got to be together and have fun. Have y'all decided for sure about Canton?

  50. You are SO lucky you were able to go. I have to admit, I'm jealous!

    I LOVE Homegoods. I was just there. That is the best store, but nothing beats a great garage sale...

    If you get a chance come by my Blog for a visit and say hi. I have put up quite a few new posts and will be putting more up this week from the San Francisco International Gift Fair where my Pillow Collection was featured and Romantic Homes who has featured my Pillows in their beautiful magazine.

    Have a great week,
    Aimee

  51. It sounds like you girls had such a fun time! I would love to go to a Home Goods; I've heard about them a lot in bloggyville but we don't have any in my area. Glad you girls had such a great time!

  52. How much fun! A few years ago my best friend and I attended the longest yard sale (the TN section!) and we had such a great time. Whenever I look at some of my treasures from that weekend I still smile and think about that girl-time we spent together...thanks for sharing your fun with all of us!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Three beautiful gals having so much fun! Love it!

  54. Girl! You were in my hood! The white piece of furniture that was $300? I live in the subdivision right behind that house! You were oh so close! I didn't find anything at the yard sale per se, BUT I did buy a sofa at Akins Furniture in Dogtown! they were having big sale under a tent, so I kinda got something at a yard sale!

    Glad you had fun!

  55. When Heathahlee said in her comment, "I watched it over at Rhoda's..." I thought, "Waaaaaaait a minute! When did she get together with Rhoda?" Then I realized she meant Rhoda's BLOG. I'm such a goofball. Just wanting to make sure I didn't miss out on any fun ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love seeing your finds! I missed those spools. Those are way cool.

  62. I read this post when you all first posted it and followed it on each of your blogs...it's one of my favorite blog memories! LOL I'm a geek! I would have loved to have been there! BTW, do you scrap book? Because your name and YOU look familiar to me from scrapping. But then again, I could be crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow this looks like so much fun. I so want to do this next year. I think I read someone else's blog, because some of the pictures look familiar. Great finding new bloggers that love the treasure hunt as much as I do.
