Although for many bargain hunters garage sale season opened some time ago, last weekend was my first outing of the Summer. I had read about a multi-family sale being hosted by a group of MN bloggers. It was to be held beginning at 8am at the Highland Park Pavilion. I got there right at the top of the hour, and was immediately disappointed at the lack of organization. It was clear that many of the sellers had gotten a late start on organizing their wares. Instead of having a separate table for each vendor, everything was mixed together in a hodge podge with poorly defined bounderies.
That being said the deals were worth the fishing around that I had to do in order to find them. Below is a great little lamp that I managed to grab for $1. I had been looking for a lamp to put on the homework counter in the kitchen and this just fit the bill.
The sweater below was a steal at .50 cents. As you can see it goes perfect over a white tank. I’ve already worn it two times.
In addition to the items above I picked up a book by Lorna Landvik, MN author and comedian. The book is titled The Pine Tree Polka. Set in MN it is the perfect summer read. Not a bad haul for a $2 and 20 minutes. I am very much looking forward to what the rest of the season will bring me. Anyone out there have a favorite garage sale find?
