Look what I found!

Cheryl-Anne Millsap

Sue Morris of Spokane isn’t a garage sale regular, but, occasionally, when she’s looking for something in particular, she will make the rounds.

So, when she needed something tall and sturdy to serve as a trellis in her garden, Morris stopped at a sale. And, as luck would have it, she found exactly what she needed.

A $2 wooden ladder, retired from active duty, fit the bill. Morris brought it home and planted beans at the base.

Now, the bargain trellis supports a lush bean plant and, at the same time, ornaments her garden.

Another yard sale bargain, a faux bamboo headboard, supports a morning glory vine in another corner of her garden.

“If I need something, and I see a good sale, I’ll stop,” Morris said. “It’s more fun when you find something that way.”
