So the title should clue you in that this week was a normal week around here – I went yard sale shopping and found frames, jewelry, and more! Story of my life recently. But I love my finds and I did find a few more things this week too.
I stopped at a yard sale on Friday and picked up all of this jewelry for $2.50. Really loving the silver rhinestone bracelet!
Then it was on to my parking lot yard sale which was PACKED! Took my almost an hour just to walk around and browse all the sales along with making a trip back to the car to unload!
Picked up this large, ornate frame for $1.00! Steal of a deal as this frame is probably 18x 24 or larger! Would love to put a mirror in it but not sure how much a piece of mirror costs? If not, I am sure I can find another use for it. Would you think it is plastic? It is but you can’t tell until you pick it up!
Then I visited my favorite jewelry man’s sale. Found a few more pieces for $1.00 each.
Then here are some other random things I found:
- Lantern – $3
- 4 shutters – $1.00 for all 4
- Patriotic apron with tags still on – 50¢
Then I picked up this series of 4 frames for $4.00. She was asking $5 for the set but I offered $4.00. What do you think of the prints? They have that sort of botanical print look that is popular right now. BUT honestly I just wanted the frames, especially since they are 4 matching frames. Will be nice to hang all in a line or series and have matching frames once they are spray painted. (On the back is a stamp – they were custom prints from Sears at some point.)
Then I stopped in Value Village and found some games. $2.82 for both games. I am hoping the Jumble Plus is a fun game to play – looks like it might be! But I really wanted the Taboo game.
Can I tell you a secret? I have been picking up these group/party type games when I find them and they are in good shape/have all the pieces/etc. to use as wedding gifts! We work with the college age young adults at our church which means many of them will be getting married in the near future. I know when we got married we had NO games! And games are expensive – definitely wasn’t top of our “to-buy” list either especially after that first trip to the grocery store. So I am hoping to supply them with quite a few games to start their game closet…
What did you find this week? Did you shop any yard sales or stop in at your local thrift store?
What is your favorite group or party type game to play? Have you ever given a secondhand wedding gift?
