New thrifting place in Beaverton!

I discovered a new thrift shopping place in Beaverton!  The Garage Sale Warehouse on Walker Road, just east of Cedar Hills Blvd.  Most recently it housed a JoAnn Fabric store; and if you’ve been around as long as I have, you’ll remember that it was a Thriftway grocery store a long time ago.

This must be a ‘chain store’ or franchise because I’ve seen a few of them around, just never had time to stop in.  It’s set up with individual booths like an antique or craft mall.  There is another one on Western Ave in what used to be the Dollar Shoppe.  I had stopped in that one ONCE, and was unimpressed.  Nice enough stuff and decent prices even; but too pricey for ME to re-sell.

The one on Walker though had LOTS of great stuff at ‘my kind of prices’!  A lot of  the typical ‘garage sale crap’, lots of funky collectibles, some very nice antiques at very reasonable prices, and some great CHEAP CRAP just right for me!!!

6.14.14 projects etsy 077This one was called a ‘project table’ on the price tag.  Gotta LOVE finding pieces that have already been sanded like this.  The legs need a bit more sanding.  I might keep this one for a bedside table on the other side of my bed.

6.14.14 projects etsy 016Haven’t decided if I can part with them yet or not.  Might be handy to store crafting supplies that I need ‘at hand’ in the living room when I am watching TV.

So, that was my haul from the Walker Road Garage Sale Warehouse.  There were several more items I ‘could have’ bought,  (right price and style for what I do) but my project shed is getting pretty FULL.  I need to get to WORK on that stuff instead of buying MORE!
