City-wide garage sale

We had more than 150 garage sales in town last Saturday ~ along with the heaviest downpour of rain in years all morning! This was one of those soaking rains that even an umbrella won't help!!

Anyway, I braved the rains and cold and ventured out of the car to a few of them, finding the following:
1. lots of wicker and woven baskets for reasonable prices (for gift baskets)
2. great buys at the local farmer's market (opening day). Good buys on flats of marigolds, tomato plants. Also found one of the varieties of bushes I had on my landscaping list, and was delighted to find it was actually two smaller specimens planted in the same bucket. Good find, and great price there!

I haven't been to garage sales in years although I think I need to get a little more focused on them.
