Garage Sale Finds/Treasures

Welcome to our home! Friday morning dawned bright and early and the very first garage sale we hit had this lovely wicker chair for sale. I have always loved wicker furniture, especially on the front porch, so I quickly grabbed this up....doesn't it look quite nice with the plant next to it?
Hubby thinks it is a tad too small but I think it looks very welcoming!
This was advertised on a local Craig's List and it fits our patio area perfectly. We had looked at new sets but instead opted for this plus we did need to get new cushions for it...we are now set for dinner on the patio.

So you all know how much I love birds and bird houses~well one of my neighbors was changing out some of her decorations so I grabbed this plus one other to add to the top of our kitchen cabinets....I love how cute it is.
Let me tell you that by Saturday noon this chick was done with going to more garage sales and it will be several weeks before we check out another one. Having a whole town participate for two days is quite exhausting and I wasn't even one of the homes selling things.
Have a lovely week dear friends and thanks for checking out all my finds!
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Your wicker chair and the patio set are both just gorgeous. I love the birdhouses too. Great finds. Hugs, Marty

  2. LOVE the wicker by the front door. Very welcoming indeed! I love wicker too. My set is actually made of a weather resistant material. Garage sales are fun. I am now looking for a patio table from Craig's List. I want an iron one though. The hunt is on.

  3. Love your beautiful finds! Enjoy them my friend. Love and hugs.

    Praying for you...

  4. Noreen,

    Praising God that you found all that you were searching for. Yeah you got your patio table and chairs. God is great isn't He?

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  5. Noreen, that birdhouse is just adorable in your kitchen!

    Thanks for dropping in to see me today!


  6. Great bargains there Nor! Love the wicker chair.

  7. I love those neighborhood ones
    but you can only get to so many before the good stuff is gone (o:
    I got some games even though I told myself no kid stuff.
    I got taken away from them by my daughter who wanted me to go with her to take her daughter to dance up South. Probably saved me a bunch of money.

  8. Hi Noreen,
    Love your wicker chair, I think it looks perfect on your porch and very warm and inviting. I love wicker too.
    Nice patio set too. Make sure you show us once you get your cushions.

    Like your bird house too. I love birdhouses too,
    I have quite a few, mostly given to me by different friends and family.

    thanks for stopping in today, and thanks for praying for Aly and her Mom. They need all the help they can get.
    Have a great week,
    Blessings, Nellie

  9. Love the wicker chair! It looks so happy hanging out on your porch.
    I know you will enjoy your new table. We use ours ALL THE TIME!


  10. Great finds Noreen! Enjoy.

  11. What lovely bargains! A whole town particiapate in a garage sale? Wow! I would like to have been able to go to that!


  12. Woohooo Noreen. Wonderful garage sale finds! I think if I'd have been there you may have had a bit of competition in your purchases **wink** they're wonderful!

  13. Wow what great finds. I sold ALL the furnishings in my home when I moved from the West coast back to the East coast on Craigs list. I love Craigs list. A garage sale for the entire town sounds like so much fun.

  14. Your wicker is just great. My parents found a whole set of wicker once and now I have it. Really fun stuff.


  15. Love your finds, Nor...and of course especially the birdhouse!! I am always having to smack my hand when I see them!! My whole house can't be full of them, you know? LOL!!
    Love you!

  16. Looks like you got some wonderful deals. We need a new outside table set so bad. Ours only seats 4 and my family is 6 now...probably will get bigger!
