Garage sale finds

Last week I get a phone call from mys sister that she is at a terrific garage sale. She said everything was only FIFTY CENTS! That's right... fifty cents for each item there. I figure since it is less than a mile from my house I would go check it out. I'm sure glad I did!

The blue button up shirt is a size 2 and still had the price tag on it. It was $30! Not for me...just $.50. It will be perfect for our grandson. The Christmas dress looks new and will go to a coworker for her granddaughter who is due to arrive in October. There are 2 new in the package valances that will be turned into quilts. The soft book with the bear on it seems new also. Another gift for our grandson.

This piece of fabric is one of those dresses with the gathered top. I loved the fabric and want to find another fabric to go with it for a quilt.

There were also 2 crib bumpers. I've already taken them apart and turned the blue one into a quilt. I'll show pics of that later.

This is a newborn boy gift bag. It has the kit to put your babies hand/feet in plaster. There is also a bear and 2 boxes, one for the first tooth and one for a lock of hair. My son's friend is having a boy in October so he will get this as part of his gift.

I also picked up this size 18 wedding dress for FIFTY CENTS! My sister and I think the lady was crazy, but I have been looking for a nice wedding dress to hack apart at a good price. You can't beat $.50. I want to use the fabric to make ring bearer pillows.

I also grabbed 5 packs of iron on transfer paper for the ink jet printer, and one of those back massagers that you place on a chair for hubby.

It was definitely worth getting out of the house for a few minutes.

Wow, am I ever impressed! Love that little Christmas dress. And I never thought of taking a crib bumper apart, I see them all the time.

You are so clever....can't wait to see what you do with the wedding dress. Love your wedding dress quilt below too.
