This was the first weekend of the fall GBMC Nearly New Sale. Next week it opens up to the public. I highly recommend checking it out! Not only do they have amazing items at super low prices, but all purchases help support a local hospital.
I didn’t really need anything, but I always keep an eye out for seasonal decor. I love decorating my house for the holidays, but hate spending a ton of money on stuff that is only used 30 days out of the year. So sales like this are perfect for holiday items.
I found nine feet of beaded garland that I plan to wrap around my Christmas tree. I got three for a $1 each. Can’t beat that. I also picked up some Christmas ornaments for $5.
I found a beautiful Christmas tablecloth that I’m going to repurpose as a Christmas tree skirt. I’ve been looking for one that I like for awhile, and have been surprised how expensive they are. This was only $3.50. Sold.
I picked up some decorative pinecones and berries to put in the fireplace garland I purchased at Pier One. Only $.50 each.
I purchased three pumpkins for $2 a pop, a thanksgiving runner, and my favorite bargain of the day a large ceramic turkey from Williams and Sonoma. No clue where I’m going to put it yet, but I had to have it.
I also purchased some books, kitchen supplies, and gardening tools. They sell a little bit of everything. Plus, the volunteers are super nice and helpful. Last year, I purchased some construction materials for my house. The volunteer that runs the materials section always remembers me, and asks how my house is coming along.
So be sure to check it out next week. If you don’t get a chance to shop at the sale, remember you can always donate items throughout the year!
