Garage saleing . . .

Our neighborhood has a garage sale that we've never been to - until this past Saturday. We went with my mother-in-law and her two sisters, and I have to say, my boys scored big time. Gran bought them eight - EIGHT! - Godzilla videos, assorted toys, a book, etc. I left with some cute Halloween candle holders (4 for $2) and this hose hanger ($1):
Later the same day my husband went to Lowe's and found the same hanger for $24.97 - score!

We had a lovely breakfast and on the way home we stopped at another garage sale down the street. This was just one family, but they had a great punch bowl set, which I brought home with me for $5. We don't have one and since we host holiday gatherings, I figured it would be so nice for serving hot apple cider or some other festive drink:

Then we came home and my oldest watched about 9 hours straight of Godzilla movies :D

Great finds! I like your punch bowl set. I know my girls would steal it for tea parties. And, maybe it's been like this forever, but I love your site design.

That's so cool! I never go to garage sales and I'm missing out! I love the punch bowl set.

Have a great day.
