I am not a huge yard sale shopper, some of my friends hit the sales EVERY Saturday morning rain or shine all summer long. They score some awesome deals. BUT I am more of a hit or miss kind of gal, if I happen to see a sign and I have time I will pull over. I always wear my sunglasses that way I do not have to make eye contact with people….. why? Because I always feel weird looking at other peoples stuff. Am I the only one that has yard-sale anxiety lol. If I find something I want great… but it comes when I stop and don’t find anything I want. As I turn to walk away I feel bad, I feel like I am saying “sorry you junk stinks”.
I try hard to only buy things that I have a purpose for, or know exactly were to put it. So I don’t end up on the next episode of hoarders. This weekend I bought 3 things, the street behind my house was having a neighborhood yard sale. I did not even get over there till about noon, but I was still able to find a few great deals.
Working water feature, pumps water down the front to create a soothing water sound. Came with a light, it was really dirty but cleaned up great. I bought it for my Mother in Law, she loves the sound of running water so I thought she might like it. Well worth the $1.
Three foot wire strand of red beads, was a steal of a deal at only $.25. I put it behind my bird on the hutch I made for my kitchen. It gave it a little punch of color it needed.
Last but not lease, a bunch of fake fruit for $1.00. Yes I know maybe a bit tacky but the glass fruit I use to have in this bowl keeps getting shattered on the floor thanks to my children. SO fake, foam fruit it is… till they are a little older :).
Did you go to any yard sale this weekend, did you find anything good?
