This weekend was the city wide garage sale in Savannah, MO so I thought I’d share my finds! We weren’t going for a huge haul this year and managed to spend less than $5 the whole day, but I’m still really excited about my finds.

At one of the first garage sales we went to, I found this cute plate for only a quarter.


I realized we had a lot of walking to do on this street still and I was going to have to carry the plate with me so I looked around for a little bag.


This bright blue bag caught my eye right away but it was marked $4. I wondered why it was so high until I realized it was a never been used picnic pack!


Complete with tablecloth, napkins, wine glasses, plates, flatware, and corkscrew! The pack and wine bottle holder are insulated so I think it will be really handy for us. Suddenly, $4 seemed like a bargain… but I still haggled and got them to sell me the pack and the plate for $3.75. Not bad!

We didn’t find much of anything else we wanted until the very last sale where I found these really pretty and colorful Matryoshka dolls.


I used to have a set of matryoshka dolls that I played with when I was a little girl so I was more than happy to pay the $1 (after bargaining) for a new set!

I just love garage sale season, don’t you?
