This wasn't a garage sale, but Craigslist. We just bought a new sofa/sleeper loveseat from La-Z-Boy. It looked horrible with the cheap Target end tables and coffee table. They were parawood (rubber) and looked so yellow in contrast. Plus, the furniture has dark legs.
I found two awesome cherry end tables on CL for $100. I offered $80, and he accepted. But then I couldn't get them home in the car (not even one at a time) so they offered to deliver them. So I paid the $100.
They are so perfect for the sunroom. They are very modern looking (he had one of those modern coffee tables that lift up to match it, but DH didn't want a coffee table out there) and in great condition. They are a whole lot better than what I replaced.

This is a thread that shouldn't have died. So I will post.
I needed a lamp for the guest room. I got a fantastic one with a shade that looks brand-new for $15. I think from the style that it was part of a 3-piece set that I sometimes see at places like Lowe's.
Anyway, it is awesome.
And speaking of that sunroom . . . I forgot to post that I found two $15 cream ottomans with brown piping that look awesome with that very expensive LB sofa.

Tomorrow I'm going to look through a house with my SIL. The owner died about a year ago and her son is just now getting rid of everything. I think he's giving some of it away, but not sure. I'll let you know what I get.
Two nights ago DH found a butcher block kitchen island by the side of the road in our neighborhood. He got a neighbor to help him get it home. I cleaned it up and it's beautiful! Score!
