Saturday Morning . . .
Woke up early (as usual)and called the Post Office to see what time they opened. I was told 8am. Great! I needed to get my "I am . . ." atc's in the mail for a swap today so they would make it to Florida no later than next Tuesday. Ohhhh, I really cut it close this time. Yikes!
Arrived at the Post Office at 7:50am, only to find out that they do not open until 9:00am on Saturdays (urrrrrrrrrgh). I sat in the parking lot and called them back to see if I misunderstood what I had been told. The same guy answered the phone and remembered me calling and replied with, "ohhhh, I didn't know you meant today". Aaaah yeeaaaah - duuuuhhh.
I wasn't going to go back home, so I decided to call my cell phone carrier - Verizon while I waited in the parking lot. Wanted to see if they had any better "deals" for me than the lousy "deal" I currently have. Turns out they did. So I spent most of the remaining hour talking to Verizon and confirming everything.
So now it's about 9:30am. A little late to get started with looking for garage sales, but I thought - hey, I could just drive around the neighborhood and see if anything was going on.
This is what I got at the first spot . . .
The hat is wildflower scented, the fan is organza scented, and the slippers are citrus/Floral scented. All are triple-milled soaps that are vegetable-based. Aren't they just the cutest?! Wanna know how much I paid???? ONE DOLLAR!
Then for 25 cents I got this 6 in 1 coffee table game. I bought it for the miniature domino pieces . . .
Didn't see anything else in Lake Forest on the way home, so I decided to go just a little bit further. Well, I'm glad I did. Look at these great finds!!
That shabby chic wall shelf with mirror and three hooks only set me back a mere $2.00!! And the lamp including the shade - $3.00. You know I can hardly WAIT to redo the shade and make this a permanent fixure on my dressing table!
AND, I met the lady of the house who is the owner - Audrey, of Gem Bebe. Audrey was "auditioning" her set-up for an upcoming show she is doing in L.A. to show and sell her candles, jewelry and aromatherapy products. Her soy candles were so fresh and clean smelling - just like a new born baby. Audrey's product line is in Spa Gregories in Newport Beach and Rancho Santa Margarita, Bella Carta in Rancho Santa Margarita, Hush Baby in Tustin and Aliso Viejo, and several other stores. If you don't live in the area, Gem Bebe products can also be purchased on-line at GEM Bebe
