Robin and Christy H. guessed the closest to the actual amount I paid for the most recent batch of yard sale items. They guessed $7.50 and $7.01. If you gals will email me your street address, I’ll send your Netflix one-month trial certificates your way.
I have to confess I was giving evil little chuckles as the guesses were coming in. You see, I didn’t tell you QUITE all the details about those items. I know that conventional wisdom says that the best yard sale bargains are found early in the day. But you can also get awesome prices by showing up at the tail end of a sale when people are looking at the heaps of stuff they have left and wondering what they will do with the leftovers.
The heap of stuff in the picture cost me $1 — yes, ONE buck –during a dollar-a-bag sale the last half hour of a church yard sale. The stuff by then was pretty well picked over, but I am confident I got my dollar’s worth in that bag! I’d love to hear other people’s best yard sale bargains.
