yard sale

can you believe…. $23 total for all that stuff!

Yup.

Those coats were 25 CENTS each. Can you believe it? (One has a broken zipper with intact velcro, but the others were spotless.)

The brand new shoes were $3. And a bunch of other stuff was 25 cents each. A good use for 3 hours of zipping around town, I’d say…..

  8. Hey Mary…I have a question for you…

    What do you think about what I’ll call the “trickle-down economics” of thrift and yard sale shopping? My meaning is this: should Mrs. Jones with 2 children and a 6-figure household income shop resale and thrift because she wants to be a good steward and a frugal homemaker? Or is her shopping resale and thrift selfishly taking inventory from Mrs. Smith who is clothing 7 children on a small family-business venture?

    Does Mrs. Jones have an ethical dilemma in buying up inventory as well as holding back inventory by not using her means to buy retail?

    Or maybe there’s plenty to go around and all is fair in love, war and resale! 😉

  9. Some days the sales are good, others the sales are REALLY GOOD! Nice finds.

  11. We can beat you for once 😉 Well, maybe. Our church’s school had a huge rummage sale/fundraiser, and the woman doing the pricing was someone who wanted to help us out. I can’t even remember all that we got–2 pairs of shoes for me, 2 pairs of rollerblades, 2 bikes, Dansk settings for 6-8 (i.e. not quite complete but close), 5 extra white dinner plates, 2 vases, stuffed animals and toys and a couple of long-sleeved tshirts, 6 Christmas napkins, several big bowls, a cheese grater, etc–all for $27! Not bad, eh?
