yard sale haul
Saturday, September 10, 2011
Hi haven't been on here in awhile but have been yard saling..i recently bought a mint coach signature c bag at a yard sale for $12.00 i was thrilled since i have never owned a real coach bag before in such good condition..i also bought a room size oriental rug for $3.00 that had some spots on it but my boyfriend cleaned it nice with dish soap and got the spots out it really looks nice in my living room and was a great buy for 3 dollars..i have seen ones like it sell for a few hundred dollars in the store so i was quite please to find it..i happened into a church rummage sale yesterday and got a nice blouse and a shower curtain and some bath salts all for a donation of 50 cents..then at another yard sale i ended up with a free tube of clinique lipstick..also pay attention to those free boxes at yard sales i snagged a free rotary phone yesterday..i love old phones and this one was in good shape..lately i have noticed at yard sales that the cost of getting items has gone way up and people dont seem to want to barter especially on books...the books for a quarter are getting harder to come by but i did get some for 10 cents a piece the other day. the weather is starting to turn cooler here now and i have been researching the internet on ways to make a mobile home warmer in the winter...i have old blankets that i am going to reuse as window treatments for the winter to keep the windows warmer i seem to loose alot of heat out the windows..and i did get a good deal on a ceremic heater for my computer room for 3 dollars..the knob was brok off but my boy friend fixed it for me and it works good..

The thrift saling season is ending here in southern Wisconsin as well. There were only three of them in town this weekend. (Most of my deals this week have been on clothing and jewelry.) I hit a sale two weeks ago where the free box was better than the sale! I often find winterizing kits and materials for windows in free boxes. Begonia

Coach bags go for $45 dollars here in MN at garage sales, so cudos on the 12 dollar one. Glad to know somebody who puts on a garage sale isn't greedier than tho.
