Yard Sale!!


I'm so excited!! Jason had to run his motorcycle to the shop this morning to get a new tire and on our way home I saw this moving sale. So we stopped in and took a peek. I've NEVER bought anything at a yard sale before, so it makes me a little nervous. The idea of buying someone's old clothes and stuff usually grosses me out. I don't really know why. Anyway, there were these two great, old dressers that I saw and I just kept thinking about how much fun it would be to repaint them and find some new hardware. They were in AWESOME condition and Payson has been outgrowing her toddler bed and sharing a tiny dresser with Jack so getting her furniture she can grow into has been on my mind lately. So we did it!! I bought my very first yard sale items!! I got both dressers (one even came with a great framed mirror) for $35! And then, they even drove them up to our house for us for an extra $5! So after a little TLC Payson will have some great new bedroom furniture!! Anyone know a great place for bedding??

I love Ross and TJ Max for bedding/houseware stuff because you can find some really great stuff for cheaper than you can find it anywhere else. For example, just a few months ago I found 820 thread count, white, king size sheets for only like $30 or something.

Awesome! I tend to avoid yard-sales, unless, from the street, I see something we have been wanting/needing. I bet kohls has some cute bedding...

That's fun! I know exactly what you mean by yard sale clothes...I hate to sound like a snob, but it makes me nervous that my MIL likes to buy Brooklyn toys from yard sales...gross.

I don’t know if you like to ebay, but there is a store that posts TONS of cute and different bedroom sets, and they are way cheep! Some of the sets remind me of Pottery Barn Stuff. I bought Micah’s bedroom set from them. Here is a link to one of the sets on ebay… Just click on the “back to list of items” so look at the rest of the stuff they have listed.
