"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!
