Shoe Rack- My Garage Sale Find

I don't know how many of you gals do the "Garage Sale" thing, or the "Thrift Store" thing, but I love to do both!
It's a relaxing hobby for me.  I naturally wake early, so getting up early on a Saturday morning and driving around prime neighborhoods in hot pursuit of a fabulous find is something I consider a treat!  I actually have with drawls if I haven't been in a while.
Lately I've found some really great finds and I thought I would start to share some of them with you all.
Here's the find of the day from last Saturday morning.
No, not all the shoes......the shoe rack.  I bought 2 of them for $5.00 each!
Look at all the shoes they hold!!

The top shelf is perfect for boots too.
Here's the second one.
These shoe racks held so many shoes that I actually have some room leftover....hmm, what's a girl to do?  Buy more shoes!
They didn't hold all my boots, but I prefer to keep a lot of those in the boxes anyways.
So if you've never tried the "Garage Sale" thing because you think it's just a bunch of junk people are trying to get rid of, think again!
I can't tell you how many times I have gotten compliments on things that were Garage Sale or Thrift Store finds.
I'd love to hear all about your favorite finds.  Comment and tell me all about them!Pin It

  1. My latest find is my $1 flaired jeans that I turned into skinnys, and the $1 XL sweater that I turned into a cute little thing for me!

  2. I don't do a lot of garage sales, but am totally addicted to thrift shops and auctions! It's amazing what you can find for next to nothing out there. ~ Maureen

    1. I love thrift shops too! Yes, you can find fabulous things for practically nothing.
      Happy thrift shopping, Jules

  3. I stopped going to garage sales when baby clothes became the predominant "find." I can't stop thinking how kind it would be for the sellers to donate those to local shelters or Goodwill. Around here the best finds are in the alleys just before bulk-pickup week, where I got a great Morris chair.
