i love a good garage sale. it's pretty much my weekend hobby. today i thought i'd share with you some things i always look for at garage sales because it's good to have some idea of what you're after before you drive round...though you can always find things that are surprisingly amazing...and because i happen to have found lots of them recently!
1. nice picture frames.
you can never have too many :) and they can be painted and turned into some fantastic craft projects.
2 outdoor furniture.
i dont know why but outdoor furniture is just always so expensive- so though it's rare, if you find a nice piece of outdoor furniture at a garage sale, grab it or i guarantee someone else will!
3. old games
i'm a big fan of board game nights and it's where i've got my favourite games from. also old scrabble boards can be turned into some pretty things.
4. retro/vintage tins.
great storage, so many uses- and just so very pretty! i know i shared these last week but they're my favourite find of recent days.
5. this last one is mainly because i'm a teacher of twenty 5 year olds but i am always looking for good fun toys. things like lego are super scarce at garage sales so you're lucky if you find it. the one i'm currently searching for though is some wooden blocks...one day! i'd share some pictures of some great car mats i found the other week but they're already at school getting much use.
