When I was younger I was so embarrassed when my mom and grandma would go to garage sales. I would tell them that I would never be like them. 10 years later I get so excited for garage sales and I am eating my words. My mom would always leave the house yelling I am going JUNKIN, and now that word just thrills me!
I was home at my parents this last weekend for my sisters senior prom. There were a few garage sales so of course my mom and I stopped by. I found some really cool things! I got an old street sign from my hometown which is going somewhere in my backyard, a primitive newspaper basket stand, a couple of large frames and a couple of buckets. I was scouring Craigslist Wednesday and noticed a dresser for an awesome price. I emailed and it ended up being a girl that I had bought a hutch from almost a year ago. Her and I talk every so often, she also loves bringing new life to tired worn pieces. She is getting ready to have a baby and was getting rid of a few things that she didn't have time to finish. She also had these awesome chairs. Aren't they great?!?!? Thanks so much Heather! :) I am going to put a cute cushion on them and use them at my kitchen table.
