Garage Sale Finds Friday

Welcome back to another week of garage sale finds Friday.
Where I show you, my favorite garage sale finds from the week.
I wasn't planning on buying this coffee and tea service set,
but I did a quick google search on my phone while I was in this guy's driveway and  made garage sale mistake number one.
I didn't get all of my information, and thought that this tea service was actually all silver, not just silver plated.
My google search had me thinking that I had at least $600 on my hands at a cost of only $35.
I snatched the Chippendale set up with the intention of selling it, but once I got home, I realized that the set is actually silver plated and worth far {far far} less than what I initially thought.
Oh well.  Even the garage sale pro's make mistakes!

I made up for it by making a major score at another garage sale.
I have been on the hunt for old Reader's Digest books.
I happened upon a sale that had box fulls.
For free!

The books with their covers on look like any ordinary book,
but once you peel that cover back, each book has an amazing design that is drool worthy!

Aren't they amazing?!

Let's just take a second and check out these book covers because seriously, 
these prints are so ahead of their time.

Reader's Digest, you are amazing.

This same garage sale, also had free sheet music.
And not just any sheet music, vintage sheet music.
I use sheet music for crafts all of the time so I couldn't pass this stack up.

Plus, some of the sheet music covers are works of art in and of themselves.

Check out those awesome worn pages!

So while I didn't strike gold with my silver {ha!}
I did score some pretty awesome free finds.
What did you get this week?

I have a whole wall of reader's digest books that I collected for visitors to take, read and enjoy. I did the sinful act of removing ALL the covers so I, too, can enjoy the stunning prints. I wish I could display all of them sideways!!!
