Thrifty Treasures: Yard Sale Nirvana
Yard Sale Nirvana!
My friend Christy and I hit the road at 7:15 yesterday morning.
That's probably the earliest I've been able to go out yard saling because it is nigh impossible to get two little girls out of bed, fed, dressed, and packed up to leave the house at that time.
Our first stop was convenient because it was just up the street from my house. Christy found a lovely white wrought iron twin bedframe for $5, and I scored a pair of Sleeping Beauty dress-up shoes for $0.50.
Two large neighborhoods on my side of town were hosting community-wide yard sales, so after hitting the Starbucks drive-through (thank you, Christy!!), we headed to the first neighborhood and were not disappointed.
I found a vintage apron for $1.00
Christy scored a $7 vintage golf club bag for her husband and an adorable toddler-size Crayola roller suitcase for $3.
At the next neighborhood, I happened upon a cutesy Gymboree zebra-striped dress for Natalie ($1), a pair of shorts for $0.10 and a cupcake t-shirt for $0.25.
I also grabbed a Martha Stewart book for $0.50 and a white platter for $0.50.
My grand total for a morning full of bargain hunting?
$3.35...not bad! We were able to shop sooo many more sales because we weren't having to get kids in and out of car seats, hand out Goldfish crackers, and remind tiny people to keep their sticky little fingers to themselves.
If you like checking out other people's best bargains, head over to visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for her Thrifty Treasures party. It's loads of fun!
