Looks like beautful finds Karla~~~
I went to Heather Bullard's garage sale this weekend..and now I am having a hard time deciding what to re-sale and what to keep!

Hope your bird song event was wonderful wish I lived closer:)

Those finds are gorgeous! You hit the jackpot even if it was the tail end of the sale. Love the white lace gown.

Good grief, this is amazing. That lace -- seriously to die for, but then those hats... oh, however did you keep your composure?

Laura @ 52 FLEA

Who has a sale like that? I would have never have been able to part with such treasures. Lucky for you! :)

Judy Adams

Carla, I am sure you will look great in the lace jacket and find many uses for the rest of the lace that you cut off the bottom. You go girl.


Such beautiful finds! That's some garage sale - a winner, for sure!

Judy B.

OMG!! You hit the mother lode!! Good for you!! Sigh!


Laughing because I lost a day this week to and missed some sales.Hmmm...Wonder if anyone else lost a whole day and can't find it? Warm Blessings!~Amy

Pinkie DeNIse

Wow you scored big time Karla! So happy for you!


Can I go shopping with you?????lol

Elaine L.

I am always so ENVIOUS! You just don't find those kind of things in CA.



Great haul!! Jenn and I drove around for about an hour while waiting for our turn at the beauty shop and didn't see anything good! They just had junk out yesterday. Glad that you scored better. Looking forward to Bird Song!!

Kris Pare

Oh, OH! Beautiful goods..you need to take me around my town :)

Terri Gordon

Oh Karla, What beautiful finds you found, thanks for sharing all the beautiful things. I hope your weather is getting warmer. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Diana Connell

Well hey!! The mother of all garage sales!! You tried to tell me garage sales were a good thing. Now I believe you.
Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a good eye, and to be clever enough to think how you will cut that lace for a jacket. Hope Sugar Wings loved looking at the eyeballs. Hope you all had a blast krafting this weekend!!


Haul is right! I saw a few garage sale signs myself this past Friday but didn't have time to stop at any! Sugarwing's dress is just beautiful!

The Cranky Queen

Lucky Ducky...Beautiful Vintage clothing and hats...my gal pal would be so envious, she loves the vintage clothing. tiff


Wow, I want to go garage saling with you! Love all those hats. I adore vintage hats with flower and have been collecting a few. Wishing you a beautiful week.


I can't imagine this being the dregs. Holy cow Batman! You scored Miss Karla. I'd love you to enter my Romantic Prairie Style photo challenge...


Sea witch

mercedes scott

I have never hit a jackpot like this one! Wow! You did good, girl! Now don't hoard it all... lol :)

Zita - Mlle Magpie

That is quite the amazing haul, Karla. But you seem to always hit the motherlode! Love the hats but that gown is to-die-for gorgeous!


Wowsa and double Wowsa! The garage sale angels were shining on you that day!
That dress is adorable!


u have better garage sales in your neck of the woods than we do.

LUV that lace dress. Yes it would be beautiful as a jacket.

Katsui Jewelry

OMG, Karla, This is a major haul and I cannot believe it was the second day! I don't think garage sale season will start in Minneapolis until next month. Still a little snow on the ground. It is time for some good estate sales, though. I am always game for those!

Those flowers are some of the prettiest I have seen. I am SO GLAD that you are going to put Sugarwings in that dress! It is meant to be worn!!!



sheesh. There are not any estate sales that good in West Texas, let alone garage sales! I see that I will just have to make another trip up to your neck of the woods... :)

Bella's Rose Cottage

Hi Karla,
Oh lucky you!! I keep looking for sales but it is too wet here still. The hats and the gown... serious gorgeous goodies:-)


Is it still St Patrick's Day? You certainly have the luck of the Irish!

Love it all!


Thespoena McLaughlin

Oh my gosh! I can't believe you got those gorgeous hats for only $5 each! And that lacey dress/overcoat is going to look fabulous with jeans. I so need to go yard saling with YOU! Great finds!
