Saturday, October 30, 2010 Classifieds! Tips and Treats!

I was e-mailing Mrs. V and Co. com about finding great deals on I gave her a few pointers shocked that she didn't know(All) the ropes!! Also my darling friend Callie asked for a few inside tips too! So here we are. Open another window to then click on classifieds!

1. Search by zip code! If you aren't willing to drive all over the state see what your neighborhood has to offer. Check often!! The early bird gets the worm!

2. Search your sisters, moms, and best friends zip codes! They might be willing to pop over and get a scream'n deal for your in their zip code for a little treat as reward!

3. Search by key word! I often search: IKEA, Pottery Barn, Shabby Chic, ect. Hours and Hours of fun will be had by this way of looking for goods!

4. After choosing a section. I often click on (in the upper right hand corner) sort by..and then click on "lowest to highest". I want to by pass all the million dollar ads and get the to CHEAP stuff QUICK!

5. I love the FREE section tons! Sometimes people need the space more then they need the goods and they want it gone quick! If you see something in the free section be ready to MOVE FAST!! Call the minute you see it and be willing to jump in the car quick. Often on KSL items will not be held (for you) by the seller.

6. Always ask for a better deal!! Just like a yard sale...what is the worst that can happen when you offer less?

***** THIS JUST IN!!! When typing in your zip code (to look in your area) right next to it is a little box that says miles from. Add 5-or 10 and you get your whole area not just your zip code!! Love this!!

Hope you get loadsa treats and no tricks!!

I love Spray paint!

and I LOVE old clocks

 Don't you wonder what little school children this clock watched over?

 I tried to reach outside my color realm and paint this baby something different! It was a brown resin banged up color. I'm not sure it will stay this greenie color but I'm sure it's staying!!

Just a dog!

My sister has a darling dog that she loves more then just like a child! She got Lulu's puppy prints from a fun company called "A Child's Touch Boutique". So silly and so cute!  Find them on FaceBook!

I believe!

I strongly believe that the drivers licence division should have a stylist on hand at all times! I went and "renewed" today and looked like "hell" in my tiny grainy photo!!

‎"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Pottery Barn "Junk"!

Today I went to a few very over priced yard sales! Went to my friend Callie's new house...held her baby who cried her guts out. I felt the love! Then I went here:

Down East Home and Clothing Clearance Center
3505 West 3500 South
West Valley City,
UT 84120 (801) 968-1872
I love Pottery Barn stuff!! I love Pottery Barn stuff for cheap better!!

I'm not afraid of a monogram that isn't mine.

There were many to chose from!

I love a crazy sturdy polka dot bag for 5 BUCKS!

I loved this scalloped edge lamp!! SO darling over a little round kitchen table!

Later I held the sweetest tiny-est newest (2 days old) little baby who I wanted to steal...(her mom kept a close eye on her). To make up for lack of stolen baby...I did a little more shopping. I was SHOCKED to see they had a parking place RESERVED for me. It freaked me out a little but I parked there anyway!!

I am so pooped I could fall over! Good Night and Happy Fall!
