How to have a Yard Sale like a PRO!

Hello sweet Friends! If you've followed my blog for long, you know how much I LOVE yard sales. But I have also had over 25 yard sales of my own! I've learned a few things along the way and thought I would share what has worked for me to get  the most out of all that hard work. Let's face it, shopping yard sales is way more fun than having them, but if you gotta do it, you may as well do it RIGHT, am I right? Doing it right does NOT mean that you start digging through your attic the night … [Read more...]

Repurposed Picture Frames

Hey there Sweet Friends! Well I am glad to say that I survived another annual neighborhood yard sale! Yard sales sure are a lot of work, but if you prepare well, the payoff is worth it.

Today is not just any ordinary Tuesday, it's … [Read more...]
