The Bean has been home sick the last couple days with allergies, drainage and subsequent stomach issues. We're trying Claritin-D and hoping that does the trick. So, since he was home sick today, what did I do? I made him go yard saling. It's not like he's dying! Now, before you think I'm a bad Mom, he had the options of me staying home, him staying home or him riding along. He chose to ride along. And then he had the options of staying in the car or looking around. He chose to look with me. And he shopped! He bought a Video Now Player with five discs and a bunch of attachments. I know he's been wanting one, but I refused to buy one because it only plays Video Now discs, etc. But, he bought it and got it all for $7.00. So, I guess that wasn't too bad. For the record, I paid and he owes me. We'll see how that goes....
Sale # 1 netted a great old seagrass basket and this fun old sock monkey for 50¢ total. I've had great luck selling old sock monkeys. I name them and give them life stories. I've already named this one "Terry" for the few minor tears and worn spots he has incurred over the years.
Lot's of goodies!
"Hi, I'm Terry"
Sale #2 had piles of things everywhere, tubs full, trailer loads and tarps covered in things. I'm a digger so I like sales like this one. I found a huge old rusty cow bell that weighs at least 4 lbs., 2 vintage JAPAN elves, a vintage santa, Coffee and Tea Kromex Canisters, Bag of old keys, Mr. Peanut Doll, Blue Fireking bowl, box w/ 4 handpainted glass eggs, a Razorback statue and a set of six metal trays with strawberries on them. Not a thing was priced, so I set it all down and asked, "How much?" First they picked up the trays and hemmed and hawed and decided on $5.00 for the set. I thought that was too much and politely declined. So, then I assummed that everything would go through individual scrutiny and then be priced accordingly. But the lady told me, "$1.00 for everything else." Yippee!
Old Mr. Peanut Doll
These vintage elves were cute enough, but when I sat them on the counter I found out they squesk when you bop them on the head. Too cute!
Sale #4 netted these two big vintage Brach's Valentine candy boxes. They are 14" tall. I have an idea for these that should be fun. They were 25¢ each. I also bought two vintage hankies - Valentine hearts and a Happy Birthday hankie for 25¢ each.
No sales on Saturday for us. We are going to a Powwow. It is in a beautiful place. I'm sure I will have lots of beautiful photos to share on Sunday. If you've never experienced a powwow, it is a beautiful thing.
