I told myself earlier last week that I was ABSOLUTELY not going to go out to sales. That I was going to stay at home and list. That there was NO reason to go out with all this inventory staring at me in the face.
And then I saw the Craigslist ad.
It was a former seamstress’ estate sale. And you know me and patterns.
So my son and I head over to the sale on a rainy Saturday morning. And guess what? TOTAL BUST!!!! Just a few patterns and a few books. Hmpfh.
But…… since we were out…..and we realllllly didn’t have any reason to go home right away…and….well…you know how you can talk yourself into a morning of sales. And it was even easier to rationalize because this sale was located in a big neighborhood sale…..Bonus!
Well…..it was one of my best mornings for sales in a long time.
$2.00 was the magic price number and I picked up a set of “Value Tales” books for that (yeah…I know!), a big Lego Harry Potter set (yeah…I know!), and a London Fog trenchcoat in GREAT shape..(yeah….I know!) for that price!!!!
Even my son scored 2 big Transformers….he was elated!
I sold the Value Tales books already on Sunday (yeah…I know!)….for $85.00. I like a quick nickel….especially when the car mechanic took a lot of mine last week.
So my rationalizing paid off….and I did come home and list A TON! So all’s well that ends well in the “Land of Stuff”.
I hope you had a good weekend too! For more great stuff visit Apron Thrift Girl’s blog….AND….today is the LAST DAY on Late Night Market to get your points to win the $50.00 Starbucks card! We’ve got three big contenders at the moment…and the contest ends at midnight tonight!!!
