I just stumbled upon an older thread here about the outrageous prices some posters have paid for luxuries, I was just wondering.. on the flip side what have you gotten for a song?
Do you have any good yard sale stories? purchases? experiences?
This past weekend hubby and I had our first yard sale ever. We had about 300 sq feet of STUFF taking up space in our basement - it was time to clear it out.
The day turned out sunny and nice so everyone was in a fantastic mood. It was a very pleasant experience for us. We were only supposed to be out there from 9 - 1 but people kept coming and they kept buying so we didn't actually close things down until 4pm!
We sold about 3/4 of our stuff and made $300.00 (which is going towards a new computer YAY!) Charity will be here tomorrow to take the rest of the stuff away.
One lady told me that our's was the nicest yard sale she'd been to all day - the other people were just selling junk
the thing that kind of surprised me was the women going crazy over shoes - mine and my daughter's out grown shoes. We sold every single pair! I was shocked.
If we every accumulate that much stuff again I wouldn't hesitate to hold another yard sale.
