Garage Sale Treasure Button_thumb

The other week, I posted about some treasures that my mom and I had found while out hitting up some yard sales.  I linked up to Carissa’s meme, and confessed that the whole yard sale thing really isn’t my deal (anymore). 

Yesterday morning, I was sitting in the living room enjoying the quiet that rarely occupies my house, drinking a cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer, and absorbing myself in a good book.  Then, my mom dropped by – she was out walking – and wanted to let me know that the neighbor up the street was having a yard sale and had boys’ 5-6 clothes for sale.  She left, and I went back to my reading.  I mean, after all, I was in my pj’s and hadn’t yet washed my hair.

About 15 minutes later, my mom was back.  She said something like “I’ll sit here while you go to that yard sale.”  LOL  So, I figured I didn’t have much choice – I threw on some clothes, and tried to tame my hair a bit (after all, this yard sale was right beside my hairdressers’ shop!)

I spent $11 and came home with some clothes to put back for Ian for winter and next summer:

yard sales 001
3 pairs of size 6 jeans – 1 Levi’s and 2 Children’s Place
(all in GREAT shape, though it doesn’t matter because Ian has this habit of wearing holes in the knees of ALL of his jeans!)

yard sales 002
Size 6 shorts – Children’s Place
(these look huge to me – if not next summer, the year after!)

yard sales 003
2 long sleeved shirts

yard sales 004
2 short sleeved shirts

yard sales 005 

and 1 shirt for now – because it was 50c and I thought it was cute!

Not bad for $11 and a walk up the street, right?

Have you gotten any good garage or yard sale treasures this week?  If so, why not post about them and link up.  Just click the button at the top of this post.

Yay for your mom! :) My son blows holes in all his jeans too, that's why I stock up at garage sales. I think I have about a dozen so far, I buy every pair I can find in his size for the fall!

Yay!! I'm glad you went and found some great stuff. The jeans were a great deal, and the plaid shorts are so cute!

Great finds! I used to go to garage sales all. the. time. and buy up those boys clothes. Mine still blows holes in the knees at 12. It is so hard to find garage sale finds in a 12 slim, though. I'm stuck with retail prices!
