Austin and the City Wide Garage Sale

I love a good sale, who doesn't?

So Sweetie and I thought we would check out what was happening at this City Wide Garage Sale they do monthly here in Austin.

We got our cash together and our market bag and headed out to the Palmer Event Center.

Oh me, oh my!
Such wonder everywhere.

There was furniture and art and jewelry and junk and treats and clothes and toys and so many other fun things to look at!

The first thing I see that I want so badly I can not stand it is this piece of furniture:

Love love love love.
Unfortunately not in the budget at this time.
I hope its still there next time!

After much walking around and oohing and aahing I found the boots.

Every good Texan girl needs a pair of boots!
And they come in red and blue and green and brown and black and oh my!
(Jessica at Blueberry Deluxe Boutique - I thought of you when I saw all of these!)

I can not wait to go back and spend more time rummaging and looking and dreaming.

On the way back to the car we passed by a florist.
I thought the name was funny and a little unfortunate.The picture is kind of dark so I will read it for you:
McPhail's Florist
(fail)
But its so cute!

A great old greenhouse is attached to the shop.
Love it!

On the way home we drove down South Congress.
A very cool neighborhood with great stores.

Cream
Crofts Original
My favorite restaurant Woodland

Lucy in Disguise

Uncommon Objects

Austin Art Glass
New Bohemia

Big Top Candy
Off The Wall

Many other stores too but the camera is not that fast!
Or maybe Sweetie just drives too fast...not sure.

That was a fun morning out and about.
And I am sure there are many more to come.

Everyone enjoy your weekends!

xoxo
