Every year ’round these parts there is a yard sale and craft fair event that rocks my world! Miles of yard sales, junk galore, plus crafts and good food to boot! It is a can’t miss event for me. This year was goood!! Great weather and the bonus….it was not crowded!! Do y’all know what that means?? People are willing to deal! So when I saw this box….
Oh yes old books! And can you see what that piece of tape says…
I quickly scanned the books and decided I could definitely use them. I counted them and there were 10. I offered the guy $5. 50 cents a book sounded like a complete steal to me….
He said no but he would take $10. I was willing to walk. But I had one more thought. I told him I would give him $10 if he threw in the wood crate. (GORGEOUS wood crate y’all.) He said no that he was not selling his crates. I said okay and turned to go. Guess what??? He stopped me and took $10 for the books AND the crate!! Heart stopped…seriously…I would have given at least $5 for the crate….
So that was the major steal. But there were many, many goodies to be had. These are just some of the great finds. Some will be making their way onto etsy, others into my home. The stack of doilies — I have a plan y’all. A little crazy but maybe it will work! Course if it does I will be blogging about it!
Can I go anywhere without getting a mini bottle to add to my collection? The answer would be “no”. This one was only 50 cents so it definitly did not break the bank….
PLUS he threw in a PUREX bottle for FREE y’all!! Yes another S-C-O-R-E!!
So Rhoda stopped doing her Thrifty Treasures party for the winter but I just had to share my deals with y’all today!
Did y’all find anything good this week? How do you like those books??
~Thanks for stopping by!~
