That's where I was this weekend.
For one thing, there were so many GOOD ones! And such deals!
I mean, of course there are always a few duds. Like the lady who was selling her rubber stamps for $5, $3, and the little ones for $1. Um, lady, this is a yard sale, not Michael's. I don't care how much you originally over-paid for them. You're crazy!
Oh, and I almost got into fisticuffs with a woman who left her toddler grandchild out in the hot car, and then shrill-ly screamed at him to get back in his seat when he started to cry. From the garage. And then went back to her browsing. I think flames started to shoot out of my eyeballs, and I said as assertively as I could (which is not very much), "you know, it gets really hot inside a car in this kind of weather, especially for little ones." To which she replied, "Oh no you DIDN'T just go there!" To which my husband replied, "Oh yes she did!" LOL! I thought she was going to pound me into the ground. I am NOT THE TYPE to say things like that to strangers. I'm really not. But I just wanted to rescue that poor kid from that car and take him home with me, I felt so sad.
Well, you didn't come here to hear about my escapades. You came to view the loot, right???
I have to say, DH is the one who gets the quantity award. Here's his stuff from the day:
I won't bother with pictures of all of it...I got a blacklight and "urine out" spray, brand new, for $2. If you read my last post, you know why I need this! I got a bunch of great books to read to the kids...quality books like A Wrinkle in Time, James and the Giant Peach, etc...for .10 each. Two electric blankets for $1 each.
And then there were these:
Here's a cute little thing that called my name...
Here's a mirror for my son's room, $2...
And now, for the absolute best yard sale find, ever....
$5, can you get over that??? I cannot wait to get started on this one!
So that was our day. One of the best things about summer!!!
Linking to this great party, dedicated to all things thrifty!
