Garage Sale Jackpot!

Last night I was lamenting people's unrealistic Craiglist pricing for old dressers. Imagine my absolute JOY when we drove by a garage sale and saw this:


I practically jumped out of the car to go find out how much they were asking for it. She thought about it for a minute before telling me $30. THIRTY DOLLARS! Then she proceeded to tell me that it included the nightstand and mirror. Holy canasta. I told her it was exactly what I had been looking for for months and could she pretty please hold it for me while we went to the ATM. She told me she should've asked for $50 based on my reaction, but yes, she'd hold it!


We came back to load it in our handy dandy minivan, and I even gave her $40 because 30 was just unfair. And now I just have to choose my paint color and get to work!

And that was after we had found two perfect stools for our pub-height kitchen table for $15 (for the set!) at another garage sale. I'd been wanting to find extra seating for our kitchen table for when we have company, but I was having a hard time coming up with an affordable solution that would be easy to store (full-sized chairs were out of the question). Once these babies get a fresh coat of paint, they will be perfect.


Good things come to those who are so cheap that they hold out for months wait. Or so they say.
