What Didn’t Sell at the Garage Sale

 Google, Kindle, Pinterest…are books a thing of the past?

Apparently so because it seems to be the one thing I didn’t sell at the garage sale!

Several years ago we bought a house “as is” and full of all kinds of stuff and books, too many for me to keep.  I decided to add them to all the trinkets and have a garage sale.  I sold all the stuff I thought would never sell,  but not the books.   And if you ask me, a missed opportunity for garage sale buyers to have books to use in their decor 😉

Books are great to use in groupings and to add color. Combine and layer them with items of different sizes

I am loving old books tied together...I've also tied them together with old belts. I love books...


So next time you go to a garage sale grab a few great books to group by theme or color, and make them part of your next level decor. It makes a house feel like home.
