Garage sale

Over the years we have found all kinds of things at garage sales. We don't go often anymore, just when they are in our neighbourhood and we can walk to them. This morning we went to one and found some goodies.
I have been wanting some more cast iron pans and have not been wanting to pay the price that I have seen them for at our thrift stores; my patience paid off and I found two - the exact sizes that I wanted - today for 25 cents each. Now I will scrub them up and season them and they will be better than new because they are the old, thick heavy kind.I got 6 of these big jars at 25 cents each - some for me and some for a friend. They are great for storing dried fruits, making sun tea and storing flour or oats. And I got a washboard for $1 to replace the one I broke the glass out of years ago.W got a heavy metal toolbox for himself for $1 and E got a bag of Lego (with mini figures) for 25 cents. This is the kind of garage sale that we love and what a nice way to start our weekend.

I like to have a good old rummage at these types of sales. It always makes my day to think I have got something for next to nothing. x
