It wasn't long before I pulled up and found this cute little vintage tea cup calling my name. For $3.00 I knew I could give it a nice new home. Sold!
I asked about the sweet vintage hankie but it was $3.00. Not a bad price really, but to much for a Garage Sale find so I put it down.
When I got home I noticed the lady had picked it up and placed it in my bag as a little thank you gift. How nice! Guess she knew I really liked the dainty pink flowers on there.
The other set of 4 pink depression glass plates were almost not seen by me. But just as I was getting ready to pay, I turned around and spotted them. Teach me not to leave before I check out every little hidden space.
As another little gift, the lady threw in this cute little vintage box of greeting cards. I think she knew I would love her and treasure her items.
I could have spent an arm and leg at her garage sale. She had so much great stuff.
I had so much fun out there today. It's been ages since I've hit up any Garage Sales. You just never know what you are going to find that you didn't even know you "Just had to have!".
The saying "One mans trash is another mans treasures" sure is a true.
But even though I found all these great items, I think the most fun I had was talking to everyone. Some people are quick to say "Hi" or "Good morning" as soon as you walk up. While others almost seem to have a look of being embarrassment on their face that you are looking at some of their belongings.
Yet once you start to talk to them, it seems like everyone has a story to tell you. It may be the reason they are selling their items or where they are moving to. I happen to love when they tell a bit about the history of the item I'm buying. Where it came from, who it belonged to or just why they want to get rid of it.
No matter where you go or what you buy, you are always in for a surprise when you go searching for Garage Sales.
