Saturday Sales and Estate Sale in the Smallest House.

Well I told you about the goodies-I picked up on Friday, but I went out for a couple of hours on Saturday as well.  I had to be home by 1oam because my husband needed my truck for a surprise that he had planned.  More to come on that later.    So I left at 7:45 am and was back by 10:15.  Not a lot of time, but I did manage to find some great stuff and even hit an estate sale in the smallest house I have ever seen.  It was 4 rooms and a detached garage.  A living room, kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom.  The sale started at 9am and I got there about 8:40 to sign in on the list.  When I got there they had already opened the garage.  In there I found.

This great cabinet for $7.00.  It is about 6 feet tall.  I plan to use it in my upstairs bathroom.

Yes that’s right it was free.  I know hate me!  I am finally cool and comfy.  Hopefully I will feel the same way when the electric bill arrives Smile

Then on into the little house.
