Finally got out this past Saturday to hit the garage sales. The weather was beautiful and best of all, had a ton of fun with my BFF Viv!
Bought a bunch of name-brand clothes for $0.50-$1 each. At one garage sale, I ended up with at least 15 items, including eight Reyn Spooner Hawaiian shirts, all for $1 each. They’re currently listed, and except one, all have a bid! Still have more clothes to list which should bring in a nice profit.
Found these plush animals, plus a couple of Smurfs from the 80s, for 25¢ each. I was hoping to find more but the pickin’s were pretty slim.
This 4-piece luggage set from Jordache is in pretty good condition. It was only $5! Thinking I may resell it on Craiglist.
And THIS was my last purchase of the day … and the best:
This solid oak roll-top desk was only $20! We’d been saling since 6:00 a.m and it was already 9:00 when we got to this garage sale. This desk had a sign with $40 crossed off and replaced with $20. I didn’t see anything very wrong with it and couldn’t believe it was still there. For $20, I knew I could sell it for a profit on Craiglist. Ka-ching!
It looks a little wonky in the picture because we had to take it apart to bring home so it’s in 3 pieces. The surface needs cleaning and polishing; but once I clean it up, it’ll look awesome!
I always say that cheap is good, but free is better! How about this solid wrought iron chandelier lamp from Home Depot?
This was another end-of-day find, one last stop before we call it a day. Walking up to the driveway, I saw this lamp with a *FREE* sign on it. I immediately grabbed it and claimed it as mine. My BFF bought a couple of things so I didn’t feel so bad walking away with this. Another Craiglist item! P.S. The cute kitty is not included!
I just love saling! Wish I could get out there every weekened. Linking up to the following, so please visit them for more thrifty treasures:
