I’ve fallen so behind on my posts but I keep shopping so one day I hope to catch up. Until then, I couldn’t miss writing about yesterday’s finds. Because it was a big one.
Amazing, right? When I saw this set, the first thing I thought about was Laura’s grad party in June. Wouldn’t it be great to have all this additional outdoor seating. I was talking to my mom about garage sales when I saw it so I just sat on one of the loveseats and I thought, boy this is really comfortable.
The original set had a firepit/table which was 3′ square. It had been used and wasn’t in good shape. Plus, who needs a firepit in Hawaii?
The owner quoted me $125 for the set. Bill and I weren’t interested in the firepit/table. So Bill suggested asking for the set without the table and paying $100. I politely asked the owner if he would be interested in breaking up the set because I wasn’t interested in the table. Then I asked for a new price and he said “How about $75?” S-O-L-D!
He and his very large son loaded the CRV for me. It told me two trips from mid Mauka to home to get all 4 metal pieces home plus the cushions. I just love the cushions!
I think $75 is the most I’ve ever spent at a garage sale. But wasn’t it worth it?
I still had more shopping to do. For some reason, there were tons of sales today. I suspect it was because last week was Mother’s Day weekend and everybody was too busy. So it seemed like this weekend, there were double sales.
So overall, a successful day!
