Garage Sale Finds

   One minute away from my house there is a place with a Garage Sale sign. I'd never found it open until yesterday. I almost crash my car when I saw these cute little eyes sitting on a table outside. I had to go see everything they had.

Garage Sale Finds

   I know this one is not particularly in mint condition but it is exactly the kind of figurines I've been looking for and was SUPER cheap. It was marked as antique. I hope a good bath does the trick though. I also found this cute little chest, there were others but this one really caught my attention. I don't know, it could be the flowers, the dark wood, the lock or the metallic trim with decorative nails. I don't know.

   I was playing with my new Ipod and downloaded an application that reads QR Codes. It was a lot of fun, so I searched a little bit about those codes and found out that I could make my own. I made one using this blog url. If you scan this image with that application your device will redirect you to the mobile version of this blog. Isn't that awesome?

  2. @ Miss Lou: En serio es muy cute! La persona que corre el garage sale me dio su numero y me dijo que su casa es un garage sale y que la llame cuando quiera ir a ver. So, let me know si quieres ir a ver too.

  4. wow, you are incredibly resourceful to figure out how to create a scan code! I don't even have a device to read these, but I think it's pretty cool, and agree that you should add it to your blog! p.s. I love the little treasure box, and your English is excellent.

  5. @ Phillaine: The code thing is REALLY cool. Making them is super easy with a generator. Thanks for the compliment on my English.

  6. I agree with Miss Lou! Maybe your country has better notifications for yard sales, but here in the US, it's hard to find yard sales without driving really far. -Hollychihuahua from Swap-Bot

  7. @ Lola: In fact it is VERY hard to find one, people here normally don't believe in such things as buying stuff that had been used but are not vintage yet. I guess I was lucky

    I remember many years ago I went to Massachusetts during the summer and we would walk around and stumble upon them very often. You just have to keep your eyes open and not let those awesome Garage Sales slip.

  9. I just love your little vintage elephant...looks like it is from the 40's. What a great find. I would have thrown my brakes on for a find like that too!
