Garage Sale Haul: Baker’s Delight and More the Weekend of June 18

Granted, I’m months away from my new kitchen and I’m not quite sure what I have packed away in Garage sale haulterms of kitchen supplies, but I could not resist this bit of baker’s delight. I bought four gently used mini-muffin pans, four round cake pans, paper liners for cupcake tins (two sets regular and two sets mini),  a cast iron corn muffin pan, and because apparently good things come in fours, four packs of number 2 pencils, which always come in handy with school-age kids around.

Total: $5.00

I later found a small wooden chest of drawers, which I’m eager and put to use in my office as an alternative to the many plastic storage containers I currently have scattered about.old set of drawers Though it does look rather Smurfy in its current form, I plan to sand and paint it.  $3

I also found a pair of tap shoes, which I bought for $1. Seriously, I’ve wanted tap shoes all my life. They sound fabulous on the hard cement (concrete?) floor of our empty basement, even if I don’t *really* know how to tap dance. One measly dollar to fulfill a lifelong dream. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Except for the “weed wacker” I got for $5. It works well enough for the price. We will get our money’s worth and likely buy something new later in the season.

I purchased a few other odds and ends, but when I bought this, I knew I had jumped the shark and had to cut myself off from further sales for the duration of the weekend. I mean, it’s pretty when the mid-day light shines in through the window, but we are months away from decorating.

Yes, glass block in the living room. Guess how much I paid for the vase?

    Oh, I love that you share your garage sale haul photos too! What a sweet little chest of drawers (love the Smurfy description). And how great is it that $1 fulfills a lifelong dream. THAT’S the beauty of yard sales. That and you can outfit your entire home for next to nothing.
