Garage Sale Extravaganza

Decided to check out random garage sales this weekend and give the thrift stores a break. Sunday was a flop, but Saturday was my day.
All I have to say is garage sales are so random!!
The 2 that I thought would be really good were full of garbage dumpster leftovers, and the ones that I almost didn't go to were incredible!
Found a beautiful vintage long wool winter coat, with fur trim. The woman I bought it from collected 1950s clothing, and had bought it in England. Luckily for me she was moving to Costa Rica, and getting rid of all her warm clothes.
I also got 3 gorgeous (of course) 50s dresses.
One pink long lacey floor length gown, one yellow knee length cocktail dress, and one cute day dress almost exactly like the photo shown.
I can't wait to wear them.
My best friends wedding is coming up....I think I may wear one of the cocktail dresses, and then go all the way and get my hair done in 50s fashion as well! Somebody s gotta keep syle alive!

Remodeling Garage When built according to garage building plans, a steel garage can cost you up to 40% less than conventional garages. With a steel garage, you can add a roof of your choice, install the doors and windows right where you want them, and of course, you can pick materials you can afford.
