the first ones of the season.

so this post is totally just about me showing off some of the fun stuff i've found in my first few yardsailing weekends of the year:
 (roughly clockwise from bottom left)

2 board games: battle of the sexes and 80's scene it, a Monkees album on vinyl, a vase made from an old bottle, 4 lovely throw pillows that now live in the fireplace room, a giant ugly 80's frame that i painted yellow to use as a photobooth prop, a hardcover compilation of 3 Anne of Green Gables books, a set of as seen on tv vegetable containers, a strainer, a set of pretty plates that i will probably end up gifting to my MIL (shh dont tell!), a metal cuff bracelet, a pair of earrings, a little white dish, 4 bottles of clear nail polish, a yellow tupperware container, a brown-ish glass bowl,  6 place mats, a little wooden crate to corral things on Mark's dresser, and a wine glass (not pictured).
Total for the Day: $26.45

and that was just one day. last weekend i spent $2.10 and came home with an old glass bottle, a mason jar, a summery table runner, and an adorably tiny little rainbow vase that will probably only hold one little flower at a time. a couple weeks ago i spent $6 on two shirts and a pair of heels. and i already have an insider's tip about another community yard sale tomorrow.

i know its still early in the yardsale season, but this is the most i've yardsailed in the past few summers, and i am quickly remembering that i love it oh so much. and i'm also remembering that, like most things, it is more fun with a friend. so thanks to Nadine for loving yardsales as much as i do, if not more!

**UPDATE: things i forgot to mention - $3 for a purple bracelet given as a birthday present, and $2 for a brand new game of Sequence.

Linda is keeping a list this summer of things and prices of her garage sales finds. You should keep a photo record of yours as well. You are off to a great start.
