I bought a couple copper jello molds from an 80 year old woman who had set up a booth at her home with her husband. She said this would be her first and last yardsale. She was setting her yard sale up like my Mom does. My Mom is also in her 80s. She was constantly rubbing on things to keep them clean and as a result, she was just worn out. My Mom will work for days to wash and dry all her glass items and she is constantly cleaning things up throughout the sale. She absolutely cannot stand to see something with a little dust on it. Thank goodness she only likes to have a yardsale once yearly.
There is one lady who has a booth every year that I always visit and buy a sign or set of boxes for Halloween decorating. I bought a sign this year and will have to find just the right place for it in my Halloween decor.
I found a three tier metal shelf for $5 that I will use for scrapbooking supplies and a set of green trees from Dept 56 for $1 that I will use with my North Pole Village.
There were a lot of things that I might have brought home for the right price, however, I felt that most folks were really pricing their items in the ridiculous range this year. When I go to a yard sale, I am looking for a bargain and I didn't find many of those this year. Did anyone else participate in the Sale or shop during the long weekend sale? Did you find any great bargains or did you find that most things were way overpriced?
