Garage Sailing

Yesterday when the boys and I met Joshua for lunch we noticed a HUGE yard sale being set up across the street from Josh's office.  We decided to get up early and check it out.   I found a jackpot of vintage fabric scraps and filled an old dry cleaning bag I found on the ground as full as I could before Josh had to declare it time up as he had to go to work.  I was so inspired by our deals that I dropped by a multi-family garage sale on the way home. 

Not pictured are a couple of kiddo books and some cookie cutters since my Carver likes his food cut into cute shapes.  The dresser was free (FREE!!) and the rocker just needs a little wood glue and it will be fantastic.  Its really quite comfortable and I don't think will even need a cushion (although it might be fun to make one anyway)

The best find of the day was the box of vintage scraps.  Some were pretty small but I still just loved the fabrics so much I had to pile them in the bag.  I figure they can still be usable somehow.  They are fantastic!  
Happy Garage Sailing!


  1. Ooooooh, such wonderful finds! I'm especially jealous of your fabric scraps and food cutters. I used to love going to garage sales with my mom when I was growing up. I seemed to run out of luck with finding cool stuff a few years back, so I haven't been in a while. Maybe it's time to check them out again! :)

  2. That's a fantastic dresser you found! Hopefully it came with the top drawer.
