I had another good week last week hunting down some yard sales. I think it has helped that we haven’t hit many 90 degree days yet here in GA which is rare for June. So yard sales are EVERYWHERE!
I have actually been finding some of the best stuff on Friday instead of Saturday. Do you shop Friday yard sales? They are a big thing here – I even see a good many Thursday sales (people will have a Thurs. – Fri sale or a Thurs. – Sat. sale). I know when I have actually had my own yard sale, I have done much better on Friday than Saturday.
Picked up this pretty jewelry for $3 total. Loved the red/white necklace combo. Think that I will be finding a time to wear it over 4th of July next week.
A game tin for $1.00. We actually didn’t have this game so this will go in our game closet.
Another really nice white pillow for $1.50. Man, as soon as I became intent on finding pillows, I started finding them everywhere! Wish I could find some colored and patterned ones. But loving all these white ones for my bedroom redo I have planned.
Been forever since I have found or bought a purse at a yard sale. But I couldn’t pass this one up. $3 for a fun Chaps purse (which sells for $60-80 at Kohl’s). It was in brand new condition – I honestly don’t think it was ever even used. And it has a bonus makeup/change purse attached.
I have been not finding much at my parking lot yard sale recently except for jewelry. Well that changed this week!
Picked up these really nice baskets for $2 each. They are like the Ikea baskets that fit in the Expedit shelves and super sturdy. They will be great for storing items in closets.
Also loved this 2 tiered fruit stand. The lady had a bunch of fake fruit piled in it and a price of $8 on it. I didn’t want the fruit at all and really wanted a lower price so I asked her what she would take for just the stand, if I left the fruit. When she said $3, I snatched it up quick! It is the perfect oil rubbed bronze color already and just really nice. Not sure if I will use it in the kitchen or not – thinking I may put it in the bathroom to store/display towels, toiletries, etc.
Thirty-One makeup bag – in like new condition for $2 – yes, please!
Another pretty pillow – $1.00.
And 2 more pieces of jewelry for $1.00. Loved that the black one looked like the popular “bubble jewelry” that you see everywhere.
Now for some things you found last week:
Cheryl found some great outdoor patio chairs and some other things…. in her neighbor’s trash I have trash picked my neighbors before too, have you?
Dawn found some cute napkins and other accessories.
