Garage Sale!

Mr. Sparkles and I participated in a 5 family garage sale today out in the ‘burbs. Let me tell you, it’s a whole other world out there. I think I’ll stay in the city, at least I know what brand of crazy I’m gettin’! We managed to make $147 from stuff we were happy to give away for a lot less, so it was a definite win. While we were there I did some insider trading and walked away with this beautiful carafe and glassware set for only $5 (so really my profit was only $142–still pleased!)

Would you believe as soon as I took this picture and went to start washing it all up, I broke one of the glasses? Yeah, believe it, that’s how I roll. Obviously Life thought $5 dollars should only have bought the carafe and five glasses. Fine.
I also managed to score some sewing bits and bobs, but more on that tomorrow for Sunday Stash!

    Well done on the profit and the gorgeously coloured set. Now just make sure you don't have to invite three good fairies and one not-so-good one to dine with you and Mr Sparkles.. We all know how that kind of thing turned out for Sleeping Beauty and her parents.

    I broke my favourite large cup yesterday which is, sorry was, just perfect for anything from muesli to stew. It had survived 11 years and 8 different moves, two in the past six months, and I managed to brush it off the table with my elbow whilst taking laundry out of the washer. Still hurting.

  2. I love that carafe!! I'd pay $5 just for that alone.

    So fabulous! A shame about the glass that broke though. I took some fabric to my guild meeting today (we had a sale day) and managed to sell most of it – now I can buy more fabric!!
