Garage Sale Fun with Kendra

Friday and Saturday was my town garage sale, there were over 250 sales and I feel like I went to all of them! Friday Kendra came out and we shopped for 5 hours and covered about 3/4 of the town. We had so much fun chatting and laughing and shopping! She is an awesome friend, so down to earth, sweet and fun! Then Saturday me and Nico (dog) decided to go to some that I missed as I wanted to find some outside toy bargains for the baby I take care of. After about 2 1/2 hours: 2 lil tikes things for her and a lil green carpet cleaner for me I was shopped out! On the way home my bestest friend & (Nico's other mother) June called and wanted to go, so I picked her up, dropped Nico off and away we went. I kept driving past them, saying that one doesn't look good ... because I was so sick of shopping! Anyway, at one of the sales June called me over to see a bench she found and I got it for the bargain price of $15. It's like new and the coolest thing about it is that it has 3 interchangeable seasonal plaques that fit in the back. I got an Easter, 4th of July and General Prim. I was going to use it in the yard, but it's way to nice, so In my house it went to add more clutter, cuteness! It was an awesome garage sailing weekend and I have had my fill plus some! Here's the bench:

My favorite finds were some small Boyds Bears, 2 pretty Amish pictures, the bench and a Pfaltzgraff Folk art bowl.
Hope you had a fun filled weekend too!

What a perfect bench. I am glad you dragged yourself around for one last time. You are a good friend. I love to garage sale. It's been so cold here that no one is having them yet. I can't wait though. -Steph-

Awesome bench! How I wish I had someone like you to go garage sale-ing with Michelle! I bet I would have a ball with you. I go alone all the time. Nobody else likes it like I do. I did have a friend that did at one time but she moved to Georgia. Sounded like you had a great day, isn't it the best? Have a great rest of the day! XO
