I am a little late on this. Like a week late.
Last weekend, we enjoyed another sisters (and daughters) outing.
Des Moines. Three vehicles, and 144 garage sales.
Needless to say, we did not hit them all, but did go to alot and got some GREAT bargains.
A trip like this, definitely requires an overnight stay. I know, only an hour away, but if we can find an excuse to spend the night together, we will.
And it was Rise & Shine EARLY, the next morning to get the best deals, right?
First on the agenda? arriving in Des Moines , and getting something to EAT!!!
3 beds, a couch and many comfy chairs….and look how many are gathered in the KITCHEN, standing around? I was on the couch with Kim. 🙂
We were the only smart ones. Life it too short to spend any more time in a kitchen than you HAVE to huh?? 😉
Not sure what was going on here, and probably better off that I don’t know. LOL
WHAT a deal!!! a massage chair from Brookstone ($1,200) retail price,
Garage sale price? $100. SCORE!!!!
There were TOO many stops to keep track, but this was my last one. I was tired and my car was filled to capacity!! time to get something to eat, and call it another fun filled family weekend.
Now, remember, I am typically not a garage sale person. I don’t like to THEM, or even ATTEND them. I usually give my family an idea of what I am looking for, and they do the work for me. But I have to admit, it was a successful day. It is amazing to see all the interesting things, even if you are not making a purchase at all.
One thing about it, it is some good cheap fun, and THAT alone, captures my attention.
Enjoy your weekend.
