Thrifty Treasures: Remington Hot Rollers


Went to my favorite GW store this morning.  This GW is about a 30-minute drive from my home so I don’t get to it often.  But it’s in a really nice community and always has some GREAT stuff so it’s worth the trip.

I was thrilled when I found this Remington Tight Curls Hot Setter for only $5.49. I knew about this great seller but had never run across one.  A brand new one with box and clips can go for about $90 to over $100.  This one has no box and no clips but can still fetch some pretty good $$.


I also found this vintage Clairesse wax curlers hairsetter at the SA.  It’s missing the mirror and clips but still in very nice condition.  I couldn’t find any info on it, but pageant moms like the vintage sets because they tend to retain their heat longer than the newer ones.

I paid a little more on this one than I would have liked.  I thought the price tag read $7.99; and with their 50%-off sale, I thought I paid $4.00.  Not until I got home did I realize the tag read $17.99 so I ended up paying $8.99.  I’m hoping to get between $40-$50 for it.

Hope you’re having a great week with great sales!  Be sure to come back for another Cash for Trash post tomorrow!
