Last Garage Sale of the Summer

339725578
I normally do not stop at garage/yard sales. But this one happened to be right next door. Really. I scooted over and what do my eyes behold? A quilt rack. A nice, sturdy quilt rack. For $25.00. It followed me home and now lives in my bedroom. Since the home office redo I had an empty spot in the bedroom that the wing chair had occupied. The chair was never used for anything except clothes. Meh.

I like this much better than the chair.

  7. Excellent buy! I once passed a garage sale where they were selling 3 quilt racks, $10 apiece, and so I bought them all (gave two away to friends). Isn't it great to have one?
