I did happen upon one huge tub chock full of older greeting cards. They were dry - all the way to the bottom. I saw some cute older kid's Valentine's and some sweet Easter cards, so I asked how much they were. They told me that thew were 10¢ each. I thought about how damn hot I was and the sweat was dripping off my nose and how I would have to squat or sit on the hot concrete to look through them and I decided that was just not an option. So, I asked, "How much for all of them?" And they said, quite quickly, "$3.00." SOLD! They 8 year old daughter had gotten in trouble the night before so her punishment was to do whatever needed to be done at the yard sale. So, they made her take all those cards out of the tub and put them in a big bag for me - she was sweating and sitting on the hot concrete and well, didn't I just feel like a big old meanie. I tried to help her, but the Mom said "NO! She is learning a lesson." No, she was about to have a heatstroke, I thought.
Sunday I sorted those greeting cards and there were 482 cards with envelopes. That's $48.20 at their 10¢ price, not to mention the regular prices on the cards. The bulk of them were valentine's and from the 70's and 80's. I kept a lot of them - over one hundred, but I am taking the rest of them to Goodwill later today. Still, a good deal at $3.00.The only thing I bought at the other three sales was a pillow a lot like this one. Except the one I bought is a big white square with yellow trim and far, far, far more creepy than this one. It was only 25¢ and I do enjoy having one piece of vintage kitschy crap-ola in the booth to attract attention. I sold my CREEPY CLOWN so I need something else to fill the void. I bet she sells too.
Stopped in Goodwill later and only bought this old Catalin/Bakelite poker chip and playing card rack. It will go on ebay later this Fall.
