Garage Sale Scores

My husband and I LOVE to hit garage sales. Since we don't have the same days off, I have had to go solo lately. But since I have found all these cool DIY and how to decorate your house on a dime blogs....I've been finding all kinds of cool things to use around the house. Here are my 'scores' for this trip:

I actually got these at Goodwill. $3 for all 4!!! Less than a dollar a piece! SCORE! They are glass and have felt on the bottoms....I have plans for hurricane glasses with these!

I have plans for the little frame - spray paint and ribbon. The bigger one is brand new and that is cork around the edges. 10 cents each! SCORE!

The aligator clips are going to be used to make hair bows, the sign will get spray paint - I just liked it! and the spackle is for my husband.

Aligator clips - 25 cents, sign - 25 cents, spackle - 50 cents
These are for my grandson - 50 cents each!!

The DVD is brand new...still has plastic on it!
Everyone needs an Elmer Fud hat - and this one is Columbia brand.$1.50!!!
2 Tupperware containers - look brand new - retail $15 each
I paid $1 each!! SCORE!!
I love mosaic glass! The one on the right even has a light in it!
$1.50, $1 , $2
I didn't realize until I got home that the clear one is Partylite!! SCORE!

I plan to spray paint these and add to a tall vase. They were on clearance

7 cents each! 38 cents with tax!
This was it for today...
