Not this Saturday, but last Saturday we had a great time hitting the garage sales and finding little treasures. Nothing to shout about, but just lots of little goodies and lots of fun. Exactly what it's all about!
Actually this is backwards. The decorated copy paper, pretty flower decorated pens, glue stick, childs scissors, were all found at the last garage sale of the day. Everything is brand new. The pens all wrote perfectly. I gave the little scissors, paper to my little five year old neighbor girl.
She loved them.
Kleenex, pencil and pens were found in another sale in a little zippered pouch which I didn't show.
The paper was 25 cents each and she threw in the little scissors and glue stick. The pens were 50 cents each.
Zippered canvas bag was 25 cents with all the goodies in it. I spent a dollar.
Avon products. The perfume is, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and cost $5.00. It smells wonderful.
The eye cream in the gray container was 50 cents and so was the Rejuvinator.
I bought these Avon Talc's at a different garage sale for 50 cents each! I have daughters. :)
All brand new with little plastic circles in tact on every one of them! I checked! :)
I bought two of these at a quarter each!
Each one was filled with these beautiful little eggs. A nice bowl filler at Easter, don't you think?
Two sets of these adorable lace kitty kat curtains. A quarter each. Never opened! Price on the back said $13.99! I am putting one in the garage. Ok...it's my *sigh* laundry room also. For 25 cents I couldn't go wrong.
And this also for just a quarter....
....and inside was stuffed with gift bags, boxes and tissure paper..LOTS of it.
I love this stuff and use it for packing or storing delicate things as well.
This book on English Literature for just 50 cents!
Two hand knit scarves for just 25 cents each..long and soft. I couldn't pass them up and I have neither of these colors. All brand new. She had about a dozen for sale and I chose these.
This brand new denim shirt! Yippee! I was in Denim heaven and it cost $1.00!!
..and last but certainly not least was this wonderful Washington Navel Orange tree complete with pot and loaded with orange blossoms for just $15.00! The pot alone was worth much more than the cost of the tree. I think actually, twice the price of the tree at Lowes.
And that was our day. I would say not bad at all. I usually come home with at least some silver plate but not this time.
Still and all it was a profitable day.
Hugs and love to all...
Oh, and dear eldest son came for a visit and saw all the silver plate I had. Talked me out of it by dangling a hundred dollar bill in front of my nose! Said he needed it for the bakery/restaurant "Jammin' Bread" as they were running out on Friday nights..(they use only silver plate for dinner.) I didn't want to take the money..but he insisted...so...
I will just go buy more from garage sales with the money and take it to them. After all, I AM his Mom!
Thing is...I bought all he bought for just $3.00! LOL
Still...(OH, I AM BAD!) One should NOT profit from ones own 55 year old son..should one? (I threw in the age so you wouldn't feel quite so sorry for him.) :)
