I went yard saling!

"MULTI FAMILY YARD SALE" the ad on kijiji read. Multi Family Yard Sale? It was calling to me!

The address was a ways away. I live in a small town in Ontario, and there are lots of rural communities nearby. I didn't anticipate how far away I would have to drive.

I got into my blue elantra, minus one husband and one baby, and headed out at 7:30. I drove, and I drove, and I drove some more. I nearly turned around at one point, but decided to go just a bit further. I am glad I did!

I rounded a corner and saw all the cars lined on the side of the highway. Sign number 1 that this was going to be a good one. Then I noticed the tables and tables of stuff all set up in somebody's massive front yard. I was excited!

I found this lamp at the yard sale:

It was only $5 and I think it will go great in the spare bedroom.

I also picked up this gem:

It is in need of lots of TLC but I think a bit of paint will spruce it right up. It was only $3.

I love the detail on the bottom:

I think it will find a new purpose as a bedside table in our bedroom.

And my favourite find of the day was this beauty:

I think I am IN LOVE with it. And can you believe it was only $3?! I do like the blue colour it is now, but it needs a bit of help still. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet. Maybe it will act as a side table in the spare bedroom? Stay tuned to find out!

It is in fantastic shape. I still can't believe it was only $3.

Yay for yard sales!


  1. the little blue cabinet is so cute, what a deal for $3!

  2. GREAT finds! Worth the trip indeed.

  3. Multi-family sales sometimes yield the best finds!

  4. Great finds, especially the little smoking stand.
