Garage Sale Season Has Returned

My favorite church sale (the Men's Spring Sale) organized, set up and run by the men of the parish was Saturday. They always open the outer doors at 8:45 so no one has to wait outside in the rain and open the gym doors at 9:00 am sharp. Rows of tables are set up in a similar way each time.

Used my white light box, tripod, camera set at 1600 ISO and a few of my finds. A bit early in the month to share but here are some favorites.

Edited all the photos in PicMonkey.

This is a keeper, a turned oak collection plate. I added keys and a lock from my own collectibles.

Added a short tripod to my collection.

The Dogwood in BC's flower and this one is made of sea shells painted and framed. The totem is a vintage Japan import with one wing long gone.

Always looking for vintage kitchenware, sometimes get to hear the stories behind the pieces. Fav is the green handled Chip cutter.

DH found the doll house at another gs, I had a bit of fun playing. Going to a new home soon.

An update on the Dahlia project - they are now planted. Here is the tag for Sunset Assorted.

See you again Thursday, 7:00 a.m.
Thanks for visiting.


  1. Garage Sale season is way better than Christmas. It's my favorite time of year. I'm going home to Texas to my favorite garage sale towns and I'm already planning my fun.

  2. Hello Joy,

    You found some goodies, and I found bits of blue in your post! Thanks for sharing today.

  6. I love garage and special sales to hunt and find. You found many wonderful treasures at one place. Glad you shared you finds. Have a great week and happy hunting!


  7. Oh my Joy! ... you have found some real treasures and your photos in the new light box are really good. Love the oak collection plate. If you decide it is not a 'keeper', please let me know.
