Oh yes, it is now the season! The yard sale season!! We are huge yard sale junkies around this house. Even the teens will set their alarm to get up bright and early to get the good stuff. Every weekend the signs seem to multiply around town. I love Spring Time! Perfect weather for deal shopping.
This week, we had our eye on 2 specific ones. A few blocks over there were signs all over town for a “block sale”. The signs said HUGE BLOCK SALE – SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE! This how ever was a huge BUST! It was 2 houses and mostly baby stuff and itsy bitsy tiny over priced American Eagle sweatshirts. My mom did manage to find a vintage electric knife that her friend has been looking for for months. So I guess it wasn’t a total loss.
The second sale was held by a friend of ours. She had some awesome goods! Her clothes were also expensive name brand items. The big difference was her price was in the .50 cents – $2 range! What?? To bad her daughters are also teeny tiny itsy bitsy little teens. I did manage to snag a pair of Nike gym shorts for Dan for 50 cents! My kinda deal right?
Here is the rest of our haul.
The angels are a little out dated, but I plan to give them a face lift with a coat of paint and fresh accessories. For .25 cents each, I can manage to do something with them. Even if they just fill in space on the shelf for now.
This cute little wooden sign was also just .25 cents! How could I pass it up? It fits perfectly with my country decor!
Do you remember Chia pets? Loved them!! I have already planted these herbs, lets see if I can manage to keep them alive for a little while. Nothing like fresh herbs in your fantastic recipes and for just 50 cents, I just saved a ton of money!
This adorable $2 wall clock was one of my favorite finds. The black frame and rust colored center match perfectly in my kitchen. I was due for an update and it’s so much bigger than the one I had before.
My favorite purchase of the day is this sweet Chanel bag and Wallet! $2 for both – Cha Ching! I am always looking for a great bargain on a nice bag. And with a matching wallet and small price tag, how could I pass it up?
Are you a yard sale junkie too? I’d love to hear your great finds and can’t pass up bargains. What is the best thing you have ever found at a yard sale or garage sale?
