JUNK IN THE TRUNK!!



YAY!! FINALLY! I got my "Garage Sale Fix"!! I had Saturday morning ALL TO MYSELF, (Little Missy had choir workshop and Hubby had to work) soooo.....as soon as I dropped her off, I headed for the garage sales! I had mapquested all of my locations and hit the ground running with tons of excitement!! After several sales with claims like: "Multi-Family", "Barn Sale" and "Everything Must Go"....I had NOTHING!! I was soooo bummed! I admitted defeat and decided to stop by the fabric store to move on to another project. Then I realized it was still before 9 am! ha! No one is open on Saturday morning before 9 am!! So, as I sat at the parking lot exit.....contemplating my next move, a sign caught my eye....You guessed it..."GARAGE SALE"!! I thought about passing it up when I realized they were apartments. (I mean, how much stuff could they possibly have in apartments??) That would have been a big mistake!! Check out my full trunk after just one garage sale!!! Nothing makes momma happier than to have JUNK IN THE TRUNK! YAY!

I thought you might enjoy a closer view of some of the things I found.
