elks rummage sale
Saturday, September 25, 2010

I went to the Elk's rummage sale on friday..got there just before they closed.. I went in and an old man handed me a box and said fill it for $3.00 dollars. There were ten tables full of clothes and another twenty tables full of knicknacks and all sorts of goodies. At first i didn't think I would find enough to fill the box but I did with the boyfriends help. For three dollars I got clothes, pillowcases, a lace table cloth, books, , Christmas ornaments. socks, and hats  for Winter..I can't wait to get into my box and look at all that i found. it was the best deal all day and the last place we stopped. I didn't know ahead of time that it was the end of their sale. but glad we stopped.

Earlier we went to some yard sales and i found some nice knit gloves for winter for 50 cents a piece. and some pretty necklaces for 50 cents a piece. i believe one of the necklaces was real gold it is an old timey locket its pretty. When i go yard saling i try to go to yard sales out in the country a bit and stay away from city yard sales the ones in the country offer more of a variety and you can get some unique items. I also got a lavender perfume set for $3.00. I thought it was a bit pricey but my boyfriend said to buy it because it would be more at the store and i do like perfume. it was in a box and never used. i also got four nice mugs at that yard sale for 5 cents a piece. i like thick mugs for my hot chocolate in the winter. The weather is starting to get cold here in Michigan I think we are in for an early cold snap have been busy trying to find warm clothes before it gets any colder. The temps really dip in the low teens here in the winter makes it hard for me to get out side and go shopping. I don't have a car and i have to walk every where i go unless the boyfriend is here he ussually drives me. I wonder if anyone on here has any ideas on how to keep a trailer warm in the winter. I love in a mobile home  its nice but it can get cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

I went to a yard sale this past weekend , I found a tube of lipstick for a quarter. I needed new lipstick and it was new never used.. Makeup is always a good find for a quarter. The best finds were had in the free box. I found  two magazines, a pill box, two working flash lights all for free. I like free items and more and more when i go to a yard sale i tend to stop at the free box. Sometimes better stuff is in the free box.

I live a very frugal life more for necessity than for pleasure. i like saving money but sometimes it can get frustrating..i buy all my clothes from thrift stores or yard sales. I can't remember the last time i bought something new but used stuff seems new after you bring it home and wash it up. This is a way of life for me and has been for a lot of years..I am a big trash picker to i find great stuff in the trash but its hard sometimes to get past the stairs of others who don't trash pick..Last summer i found a box of old records someone had thrown out and i sold a few of them on ebay and made a nice profit..i am looking for the ultimate find in the trash or at a yard sale that might actually  be worth some money..i have friends who buy cheap at yard sales then sell high on ebay and other internet sites..I too did the ebay thing for a while but the fees got so carried away i stopped selling but one winter i made  four thousand dollars on the stuff i found at yard sales and in the trash..but boy it was alot of work but i had fun doing it..I wish i could find another site like ebay but with out all the fees..

I am just about finished with my mystery novel, I got the book at a yard sale for a dime bought 8 books that day. I don't think the lady ever read them because the books looked new and had no marks or spots in them..I thought that was a good deal as books can be pricey in the store.I sure hope I am not boring any one to death its been along time since i have written a blog. i went to the thrift store looking for winter clothes and i got some nice sweaters with designer labels for a dollar a piece. I do love the thrift stores great for clothes..
