Filed under: Uncategorized — tomboyemily @ 8:46 pm

Today is our town’s annual yard sale day. I will be doing yard sale stuff, I have already made $35! And I haven’t officially opened!

So… what’s your best yard sale find? Most/least money made at a yard sale? Weirdest item you’ve seen?

    Most money–bunches and bunches when we had a yard sale with the stuff from Joy’s house. I don’t remember how much, but it was hundreds. Best yard sale find–18K gold claddach ring. Weirdest-not a clue.

    I love yard sales but we don’t have many in my recent location. The best deal I got recently was a big mobile whiteboard for our learning center. It’s not cheap but definitely a lot lesser than buying a new one which materials are not that good.
    Haven’t found a weird item yet. Maybe I wasn’t up to it. 🙂

    I’m coming from NFF.

    The grossest thing I’ve seen is pairs of men’s USED underwear at a garage sale. Skid marks and all. Even more funny….they were asking $1 a piece!

    Absolute BEST…six 18 x 24″ framed paintings on artist’s canvas for .10 apiece! I re gessoed the canvases and repainted all of them and refinished the frames for my living room and to give as gifts.

    Second best… the whole year of 1952 “Fantasy and Science Fiction” pulp magazines full of classic stories by famous authors. $12!!

    Weirdest…mirror framed in a horse yoke/collar. Painted purple. Yeah, had to have it. Lol!

  7. My sister used to live off a busy highway that led to a very popular festival held every Labor Day weekend in our community. During the years she lived there, we always took advantage of the major traffic that was headed back and forth to the festival by having a big yard sale at the entrance to her subdivision. One year, she and I made over $1000 together in just one Saturday! We didn’t even advertise!

    I’m stopping by from Friday Follow, albeit a tad bit late. :0) I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e.

    I really like your blog and just became your newest ‘Follower’. I will definitely be back to read more soon.

    I would love for you to take a minute to check out my blog and return the favor, if you like what you see.

    I hope the rest of your weekend is amazing!
