I’ve been a bit under the weather the past few days…but that didn’t stop me from going to a few sales.
I told myself I could go when I listed ten things….and that sure motivated me to get those done.We decided to go “family style” and just drive around to sales that had signs posted. It was around 11:00 am at this point…which is REALLY late….BUT…
…there is an advantage to going late.
We showed up at a church sale about 2 blocks away and they were in the “Fill a Bag for $1.00” stage of their sale….which can be good or bad. Luckily….it was good. I was able to pick up these cookbooks for about 10 cents a piece.
Now, none of these are huge moneymakers…but they all are solid $9.00-15.00 each…which isn’t bad for a 50 cent investment for the whole lot.
And in true “hoarder” style, we filled the bags with other treasures that we may…or may not…use around the house. I’m trying to be REALLY good about not bringing more into our dwelling than I really will do something with in the future. Easier said than done…especially at $1.00 a bag.
The rest of the sales were “eh”. Nothing great. Which is fine….I had three bags o’ stuff to sort and organize. Which just goes to show you….you really can find treasures anytime…anywhere.
Here’s a past story of something great I found late in the day. (I ended up making over $1500.00 on this “late day”treasure)
How about you? Ever find a great “late day” treasure?
