A Garage Sale??? On A Wednesday???

Today on the way home from work, on my usual route, I saw a sign for a garage sale. There was no date on the sign just an address and an arrow. I wasn't sure if it was leftover from the weekend, I didn't remember seeing it yesterday....but.....

I decided to turn right....

There was a card table set up in the driveway with just a few things displayed. Right away something caught my eye.....

A little embroidered baby bib

The next thing I saw was a darling little dessert plate

A little faded, but the Southern Bell outfit...too sweet!

And then I found my Scottie! At least I think it's a's not the one I was looking for in Atlanta, but still a Scottie!! A little planter I think.

Not too bad for a Wednesday garage sale...and the price was right up my alley.....$5.00 covered it!

So glad I saw the garage sale sign today!!



  1. Great finds, I love the plate!!
    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful night!


  2. I really love the little embroidered bib! Sooo cute!

  3. We have tons of Wednesday garage sales here in MN. People started doing it a few years ago. Your new treasures are so cute! The bib is darling, and I'm so glad you found a scottie! :)

  7. I love the planter, Chris! What a wonderful treat to find a garage sale on a Wednesday -- good for you!

    Bummer about the tin scottie..but now you have this darling blue one!
    Looks like we ALL love your planter!

  9. That Scottie vase is TO DIE FOR~ Even more fun than the outdoor display piece if you ask me!

  10. Cute stuff Chris! How odd though for a midweek garage sale. I must pay better attention when driving through town!

  11. Wow, you hit the jackpot! On a Wednesday? Your lucky day! I LOVE the scottie vase.


  12. I love the blue bowl! How cute it that!

    I've begun to notice garage sales on Sunday! I think that is so odd....

  13. You got some real goodies, Chris! Cute bib and plate, but the blue Scottie planter is really special! Love that shade of blue.
    Follow those signs!

  14. Chris, I absolutely loved your post with all the baby images. What a sweet book! I can't believe the size of your thrift stores, holy cow! Such cute finds at this yard sale. Hope your week is wonderful! Elizabeth
