~Garage sale finds~

Garage sale finds ~ all from the same garage sale!!!
That red box at the top of the stack?  It is full of...
...buttons!!!  What seamstress could resist??
Here are just a few of the lovelies in the mix!
Olive Juice dress with tags still attached!  I plan to take this in a little on the side seams for Middle Sister to wear this fall.
Cute bag.  All three of the sisters wanted it.  It resides in the locker that holds all our bags and can be pulled out by whoever needs an overnight-to-grandma's-house bag!
Dot lamp shade.  Not sure where I'm gonna use it but I couldn't leave it there.
Fabric stack.  Again, what seamstress would have left it there??
Large old ledger book.  Couldn't leave it there either!
Fun frame, paper parasol, and old wooden square.  What seamstress...!!!
Cute little mirror.  If you look closely you can see my cool ceiling mirrored in it!
Old frame.  Glass was not broken when I picked it up and added it to my pile.  But that's what you get with garage sales and the tons of people who were there.  I was buying it for the frame anyway so Oh Well!!
Music stand, old chandi, outdoor stuff
That's what all I brought home when I went at 9 when they opened.
The sisters wanted to go so after lunch we went back and found a few more things!
Big Sister bought this bed for her American Girls dolls.  I see the day fast approaching when she will decide she is done with dolls but for now she still enjoys them. 

Middle Sister spotted this.  Can you believe I hadn't even noticed it in the morning?!
She has wanted one for so long and this was cheaper than buying a new one so we brought it home with us.  I told her now I don't need to get her a birthday present!  She wasn't sure that was such a great idea.

Big Sister talked me into buying her this stuff too.

I picked up these for one of the girls to wear in the fall.  Little sister also found a pair of Hanna Andersson flip flops but I didn't get a picture of them.

Had debated about this in the AM and since it was still there and only $2 I brought it home with me.

And a bundle of flowers for $1.
Great garage sale, i love this one!  They are always swamped and they move a ton of stuff!

Ooohh! Buttons! So many things you can make with buttons! Dresses and frames and stuffed monsters, oh my! ;-) but really... it's actually a golden find because it looks like a great collection with a big variety of button types and looks... which is really hard to find at craft stores.

Great job! :)

The lamp shade and little sconce caught my eye, because I have a lamp that they would love to pair up with. Would you consider re-saleing them? I ditto the question: where was this sale?
