Yard Sale Fever

I think I'm gonna head out to the yard sales this morning.  With all four boys in tow.  My husband teaches motorcycle safety classes on some weekends, and this is one of them.

Even the thought of corralling four boys in the midst of cast-off toys, games, and books galore isn't deterring me. The sales are calling my name.

Last week I scored.  Big time.

We were given a patio set last summer.  It's nothing fancy.  And, I actually would like to eventually replace the cushions that came with them.  But, I was excited nonetheless.  (It was free, hello!)  It did not have an umbrella though.  And, our deck gets a lot of sun.

So, imagine my excitement last week when I came across a yard sale that had an umbrella and it's base for sale for $10.  It's in great shape too!  When I priced umbrellas on line they ranged anywhere from $80 to $200 and that was without a base.


I'm excited to see what is out there waiting for me this morning.  Wish me luck!  (I'll be sure to post some pictures.)


  1. Waiting with bated breath to hear of your adventure and your finds.

  2. Wow...great deal on the umbrella! We bought an umbrella last weekend...$100 no base. It about killed me to buy it, but we also get a lot of sun on our patio and now we will be able to enjoy eating outside a little more.

    How did it go with 4 kiddos along? You are soooooo BRAVE!! You left them in the van, right?! :)
