There hasn’t been a plethora of yard sales the past couple of Saturdays; and the few that I’ve gone to have been disappointing. But I did make it to the biggest rummage sale in Corona a few weeks ago.
I look forward to this annual rummage sale because they have tons of stuff.
It’s a church fundraiser so their prices tend to be a little higher than garage sale prices. But on the last day, they start dropping their prices about an hour before they close up at noon.
I went on Friday about 2 hours after opening and their parking lot was already full. They have tents for different areas, like women’s clothes, men’s clothes, children’s clothes, knickknacks, furniture, electronics, books, etc.
I bought several clothing items that Friday paying between $1.25 and $2.00 for each. And, I also bought the items pictured below:
vintage enesco ornament for $1
vintage angel tree top with lights for $1
pyrex autumn harvest casserole for $3
13 McDonald’s Flintstones and Batman glass mugs for $3.50
Remember this blue Remington hot roller set that I sold for $41.84 last month?
These are great because they are the wax-core rollers that pageant moms look for. This particular model is hard to find online so eBay is the place to find them.
But the model that sells for the most is the Remington Tight Curls:
A new one could sell for as much as $75 on eBay! If you want to know more about hot curlers, go to this link by The eBay Selling Coach. Vintage electric hot rollers and those with wax-core rollers are the best.
There’s a really easy way to know if rollers have a wax core. Plug them in until they are hot. Take a roller out and shake it. If you hear a liquid sound, then it’s a wax-core roller. The liquid sound you hear is the melted wax. Wax core rollers hold the heat longer, making the curl stronger and long-lasting, which is why pageant moms love them.
Linking up to the following parties. Be sure to check them out for more great thrifty treasures!
