Friday Garage Sale Finds! I am so excited!!!!

Would you believe  2 of them! Both were wearing a pinned on black bandana, sitting on the driveway, I almost missed them!!! I have an antique dress form but she's a little bulky (I'll say!) to take to a craft show and you can't sit her on a dresser, so I've always wanted one of these, not vintage, but sooo nice!
My sister has been wanting a dress form, but I knew she'd love one of these and so I got the two of them
$5.00 each wooooooopeeeeeeee!!
The couple had closed up a gift shop and were getting rid of their inventory. I'm going back tomorrow morning, they have one more a little bigger, I'll check it out!
Adorable little old chippy country will go to the sale I'm in, but those garden markers are going in my garden! So cute! linens this afternoon, but I got these which I'm very excited over getting......framed vintage petitpoint pictures! The 2 medium sized ones have damaged frames, but the others are perfect and so sweet! I'll be putting them on Ebay.....I just love 'em but can't keep 'em!

I didn't go this morning as planned, good thing......even when I left around 1.00 I kept seeing signs but they didn't start til 4:00 pm! Was getting frustrating til my first sale that was open brought me those half mannequins, or what ever they're called.

I'm a happy camper! Hoping I'm on a string of good luck! There are many times on a Saturday morning I can drive around for 2 hours and come home with 1 or 2 mediocre items that I didn't really want, but just had to satisfy the urge, ya know what I mean?

Wish me luck for tomorrow! I'll be out the door early!...and a 50th wedding anniversary come and go to attend in the afternoon too! (different end of town, maybe I can hit a couple of sales on the way?) Good luck to all of you this weekend! Love seeing and hearing about your finds!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway a couple posts down!

i can't wait to see what you got at the garage sale, but the pictures are not coming thru for me. there is just a box with a question mark. I have tried it on 2 different Internet sites? I will check back! It is probably just on my end!
