Because it’s officially GARAGE SALE season!
Kevin didn’t work Friday so he willingly came after I asked him in the sweetest manner
I twisted his arm/begged and pleaded.
But he really was fun to have around.
I just had to keep my “browsing for browsing sake” to a minimum.
The first sale wasn’t even open when we arrived–oops!
But she was totally fine with us browsing through boxes and such.
For a total of SIX dollars (yes, $6.00!) I came away with:
- one adorable shimmery teal wallet.
- one Martha Stewart cookbook (looks like new!)
- two “gifts in a jar” recipe books (this will be uber useful–what a great way to branch out from the plain old cookie in a jar.)
- one pair of blingin’ (for me) sunglasses.
- and three adorable dresses
One of the dresses fits me perfectly and is super funky and looks adorable with my leggings.
The other two were just right for one of our teens.
I saw them and knew I had to have them for “our girls.”
AJ loved both of them.
They were just right for her.
And she couldn’t believe I had bought her two dresses “just because.”
Best. feeling. in. the world.
And because I’m in LOVE with my new monogram tote from Swagger.
A couple weeks ago I won a fabulous giveaway over at Kevin & Amanda’s.
A $50 gift card to shop at Swagger.
It took multiple “shopping trips” filled with browsing to narrow down my favorites.
Kevin helped me decide on the final choice and he was definitely right on!
The tote I picked out is adorable.
And enormous. yet has little pockets for cell and such.
And the monogram in “hot pink” on the front?
I may have a slight obsession with monograms.
And I thought the “hot pink” just added that feminine touch I was looking for.
Don’t you love it?
And along the way as I made my final Swagger purchase, I had a lengthy email conversation with the owner.
Mandy is wonderful.
She gives the best customer service I have ever encountered.
She replied quickly.
Corrected glitches with class.
And made me feel like I was her only customer.
Which, I’m pretty certain, is not true.
You should definitely consider Swagger for your next gift purchase.
It’s got great ideas for wedding party gifts,
Mother’s Day, Father’s Day,
New Baby Day,
