Garage Sale Hunt

I live just a couple streets past Heritage Hill’s boundaries, which is one of the largest urban historic neighborhoods in the country. The houses date back to the early to mid 1800’s, most of them being split up into apartments now. The houses are seriously beautiful. Every year the Heritage Hill Association sets up a neighborhood garage sale, which Bryan and I check out this past weekend. We made out pretty good!

Naturally I had to get these to drool over the skill the maker had. Bryan says we have too many things that remind him of an old lady in our house. I can’t help it.

I also managed to get some fabric at the same house, all for $1.00 each!

Bryan found some typewriter paper that came in a few different colors at the same house, as well.

As we were ending our hunt and calling it a day Bryan spotted what he thought was a dragon head…but ended up being this:

It was only $5.00 so Bryan had to get it. It is acting as a bookend in the meantime of figuring out how to hang it, or what to do with it.

We also got a hiking backpack for $5.00, a clip on flashlight for camping, and Blade Runner on VHS. We each ended up spending only $11.00!

ps. Today is the last day to sign up for the newsletter before the first one goes out tomorrow!
