Yard Sale Finds...

So, I know this doesn't really have much to do with crafts but I was excited about a few things I found at a yard sale and I wanted to share them. I have apparently been told that I'm a yard sale freak.. Almost every Saturday morning I browse around looking for bright colored paper attached to road signs. With donut in one hand, drink in the other, and my foot on the steering wheel, haha.
Sometimes I come home empty handed and sometimes I come home with a car full of things. Right now I mainly look for things for my 'future house.' Yard Sales are so great b/c alot of people are just looking to get rid of their stuff. Every now and then you'll find a house that tries to sell their used items for regular price you'd find in the store, but the majority of them just want it off of their property. So, I have learned not to be afraid to bargain with people b/c half the time they'll agree to go a few dollars cheaper.

Anyway~ Here are the things I found this Saturday.

First find :

I got this baby for $22 bucks.This to me was the best find of the day. I've been wanting one of these for a long time but I couldn't find one under a hundred dollars.. Well, until yesterday. The only thing wrong with it was there's a crack in one of the mirrors (which isn't hard to replace at all). The color isn't bad but if anything I can always paint it again and it would look as good as new!

2nd find:

I got this baby for $3 bucks. I've been needing a scanner for downloading pictures of drawings or just pictures in general. So, how lucky was I to find this brand new in the box and for how cheap it was.

Find 3:

I saw an idea in a home living magazine a while back and on a small portion of the wall they had a collage of white mirrors. I've always wanted to do that, it looked so pretty. So.. I already have 3 small white mirrors, this just adds to the collection. I got this baby for a measly dollar.

I also found a really neat gift for a friend of mine. I saw it and it just seems perfect for her. I'll post pics of that AFTER I have given it to her. Anyway~ Let me know what u guys think! Have a fantabulous day!
