might as well face it i'm addicted to sales

it's raining cats and dogs here (as rachel zoe would say, "lit-er-ally, raining cats and dogs ba-na-nas!"). but that didn't stop me from garage saling. is that how you spell saling? is that even a word? a little help?
anyways, i went to one sale by myself at 8 am. it was held by the cutest group of gals. we chatted and i shopped and i found a ton of stuff. then i went home. then i called amanda. then we went back. to the same sale. and i bought more stuff. i'm a mess. but seriously, i got some amazing stuff, all for under $50. and that price includes a bike. let me say that again...under $50, including a bike. maybe that doesn't sound impressive to you. but look at this list...
1 vintage suitcase
2 blouses (1 vintage, 1 handmade)
4 sweaters (1 vintage, 1 banana republic, 2 cardis)
1 black cocktail dress
1 handmade blazer
1 pair of tights
1 pair of thigh-high socks
2 pairs of leggings (1 gray and black polka dot, 1 fuchsia zebra print)
1 vintage amber swag lamp
3 necklaces
4 bracelets (1 is the awesome crocheted one like i featured in last week's love*birds post)
3 brooches/hair clips
5 rings
1 headband
1 scarf
1 bike
2 creepy dolls for nora (she has a collection of creepy/ugly dolls)
all of this for under $50. right? right? i am giddy!

tonight i'm having a kindergarten mom's happy hour at my i somehow need to get all my new stuff out da way and clean up...i don't need these ladies to know that i'm a secret hoarder!

i hope you're all having a great weekend!!

  1. WOW! I love your haul! Good job - and what an fun shopping experience. I love every piece you purchased - including those creepy dolls! They are tres' cool! Have a fun evening! Cheers! Sherry

  2. I wish they had yard sales like that where I live. I always manage to find the *worst* yard sales! I still love going though.

  3. That is such a great haul, especially with a bike thrown in!!

  4. Awesome! I saw a few signs up today but it was too rainy and yucky to stop. I've never been big into garage sales before, but I think I'm going to give it a shot this year! I imagine I can find some really great finds.

  5. woo HOO! good finds. i love garage saling too! <3

  6. I'm addicted, too. Good thing we both have a partner in crime! I love everything we found this weekend. Had fun with you even in the pouring rain and a cancelled flea market! xo

  7. what a great score! i love the 'swag lamp'! i have been keeping my eyes out for those because i think they are so fancy in a funky way.
    i have already been researching my garage sales for wednesday but i think memorial day might be keeping folks from having sales this week!
