Yes, every year we have our annual yard sale at my sister’s home, she has a huge yard and there is usually 5 to 6 people selling in it with canopies helping to keep some of the sun out, unfortunely not the heat, it was in the 90’s both days hot… is not the word for it:)
We had a wonderful time though like we always do, it not only means getting to sell things you don’t want anymore but getting together with family, we have been doing this since the 70’s, my BIL sells hotdogs and kobasie sandwiches and pop and we all wait to eat them, they always smell so good!
I didn’t walk around to the other sales, just to hot so I shopped at the ones that were set up by me…look at these roses, I bought them from my sister Judy for .50 and put them in the milkglass GW vase, they look real don’t they?
I found these two prints for $2.00 and on the back was a label that said Pier One $4.98 a piece! They measure 16 by 8 so far Walmart and Target haven’t any that size but I’ll keep looking!
This piecrust table was my mom’s, I can remember playing on it when I was little, my sister had it and said she wasn’t using it anymore and would I like to have it…I love it, I don’t know where it will end up but I’ll find a place!
I traded my sister a crock bench for a box full of these blue and clear glass ball jars…so neat to find so many of them at one time! One of them is old because you can see the bubbles in the glass, I got about twenty in the box and different sizes!
At first I thought this was a sugar bowl but now I think it’s a candy container, I guess you could use it either way, I bought it from my niece for a $1.00!
Here is another picture of it!
Of course these two wanted to be on Grammy’s blog so here is Sydney with her cousin’s yard sale find...a Sponge Bob lunchbox!
Samantha bought three Barbie dresses still in the package for .50 she is a little bargain shopper! The kids had it alot cooler in the pool!
I did really well close to $600.00 but I had alot of prims to sell, some I didn’t sell because I just paid to much for them and knew I wouldn’t make a good profit on them. I was very pleased though.
I did buy some things at Target and Lowes so I’ll show them in my next post. I’m starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel with this decorating change over, I spray painted some more today seems like that’s all I do but it needs to be done before cold weather sets in.
I’m linking to Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm and Today’s Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality stop by to see everyone, it’s like looking at a great decorating magazine only better!
