Trash or Treasure

They say one man's trash is another man's treasure.

With warm weather brings garage sales and I love garage sales. You never know what you'll find. Granted, there is a lot of worthless junk out there, but if you keep looking and digging you just might find that diamond in the rough.

I've found things I couldn't find at any store. For instance, we like the insulated mugs that are wide on bottom and narrow on top. I looked high and low and couldn't find one at any store. I even looked on the internet to no avail. I found one at a garage sale today for a dime. That's right one thin dime.

I looked on Ebay for a new bath powder container to match my remodeled bathroom. They wanted $37 before shipping cost. I found one today for $2. It's turquoise glass and matches the wall paint.

I lost weight a year a go and my red twin sweater set is now too big. I found a replacement for $4.

I found some old children's books and other miscelaneous items as well. Not bad for a days worth of digging. :o)

Pam...I love garage/yard sales also...I love to find furniture and refinish it or remake it into something else...There's a show on HGTV called Junk Brothers...they drive around and look for stuff that people leave outside for the trash trucks to pick up...they take the items back to their shop and they create things that are entirely different...they took an old oven range and turned it into an outdoor grill...it was great...needless to say Jeff prefers me to stay at home...I want to buy everything...grin...a girl has to have her hobbies...hugs
