Yard Sale Season Has Begun

So I am not a big yard sale-er, or thrift shopper, I go for the social aspect of getting together with friends, but have never been good a spotting things, or the seeing the potential in something. I am also shy and don't like to ask for prices if they aren't marked, because I hate when someone says "Make me an offer".

Well this weekend I feel the tides changed a bit, and I feel a little more like this could be a fun way to spend the weekend mornings (I already have to leave the house so Clifford can sleep..so really it's for him right?). I think it's kinda like when I went to the Casino the first time and didn't win - I was like Casino's are meh. Then I went to one with my grandma and won right away - and then I was like well this is better than I remember lol... just like that :)



This was my favourite find - $1 for all 3  - I felt like I was stealing from them
I have re-style plans for this
I am hoping I can paint this up and find a home upstairs for it
