Confessions of an Eco-Shopper: Garage Sale Tables.

I love me a good garage sale.

I just can’t pass ’em up. What treasures may be awaiting me in the motley sidewalk clusters??

Last Sunday, while walking to get a Fayes iced coffee (the best), I bumped into my friend Mary who was having a garage sale. Not only did I score a glass of cold rosé champagne and a plastic “30!” crown that I plan on busting out when I turn thirty in March, I discovered the perfect mid-century modern three-piece stacking  table set. It is just the thing to live next to our little red love-couch in our library.

For only $20.

    Ain't nothing better than taking an old product and putting new use to it!

  3. Photograph reading your entire comments here this ‘s what Image researching for. I am currently taking Prometrium as well as the Vivelle patch and the unwanted side effects are more severe versus menopausal flashes. Also i have tried natural hormone compound lotions and it did not work.

    You got so many deals every time you go to garage sales and I'm quite impressed at your great buys! My garage door repair in Perth hasn't fixed yet so I decided to have a garage sale too, you might wanna visit!
