Paul and I are heading off to a mega yard sale today, hoping to snag some good deals on furniture and toys. I love treasure hunting at yard sales, but hate driving around hunting for sales. The community sale we're going to today is huge and every other house or so usually participates. It's in a wealthy neighborhood (Disney's Celebration) so the stuff is usually pretty nice...I'm so excited! Nothing says "Fall" here in Central Florida like the Celebration Yard Sale!
I will try to get back here and post our "finds" this evening! Last year I got $400 Pottery Barn curtains, brand-new in the bag, for $30, a beautiful large gilt frame (antique) for $2 which I still intend to turn into a felt storyboard for the kids, and a bag full of designer, brand name clothes for our son for $1.
Some of you are planning to go yard saling this weekend, too. Stop by and share your treasure finds with us and tell us how you will use or repurpose what you find!
Edited at 5:30pm - We were a bit disappointed with our haul this time around, but still found some interesting treasures:
