Don’t "Sleep" on Garage Sales

I think the cold weather has me dreaming of much warmer temperatures and the start of garage sale season.  I must fess up and admit, that as much as I LOVE a deal, it’s often hard for me to drag myself out of the bed before dawn to actually get up for a garage sale.  But when I do, I typically score unbelievable deals. 
 Here are a few of my favorite finds:

This snack set was $1.00/set!!!  I got 6 sets. 



Came home, immediately checked www.replacements.com and discovered the same set for $17.99!

I thought this $1 lantern, originally intended to be a picture photo holder, would be really cute on a hook.  I was right.


And this past spring I stumbled upon this French provincial lingerie chest of drawers.  




For obvious reasons, it caught my eye, but I wasn’t sure exactly what real potential it had until I did a quick internet search for “Painted French Provincial furniture”.  Here’s what I found.

Needless to say for $12 I snatched it up in a hurry.  After a quick trip to Lowe’s, to pick up some pink paint , Olympic's Muted Fushia to be exact, here was the result.




Of course, it’s January and there aren’t many garage sales these days.  Until then, I can stay nestled snug in the bed and dream of what awaits…
