That Garage Sale High

Last weekend while I was in Denver, I spent one morning hitting all the garage sales with my mother and sister-in-law. Garage sales are usually hit or miss (estate sales are my ish). But that day was my day. We pulled up to a house that I didn't really want to go up to and while I was perusing I looked down to see a bag full of these amazing tribal(y) pillows, each marked for a DOLLAR. I mean, I don't know what this woman was thinking selling them for a dollar a piece. I would have paid a lot more. I promptly said, "Okay, well can I have all of them?" because duh! 

They did have that overly pungent grandma's house/mothball smell. But never fret, the internet is here. I looked up the best way to get rid of it and read that leaving them outside in the sun does the trick. Sure enough, it worked like magic and they smell like they've never even set foot in an old woman's home. Welcome home, treasures!

  5. Those are so awesome. Can't believe someone was selling them, let alone for a $1! It's funny how that is.

  7. those are beautiful! i feel like garage sales in utah are so gross because everyone like passes their stuff down from generation to generation and by the time it hits a garage sale there is like nothing good left. also i feel like estate sales are so rare. i think all the good ones are outside utah. or maybe i just suck at thrifting. ah.
