The thought of getting out of bed before the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning usually makes me want to cry. Last Saturday I made the sacrifice for the sake of hitting the area yard sales with a good friend of mine. (I have yet to discover why yard sales universally have to start at some insane hour of, say, 6 in the morning, rather than the civilized 9 or 10. But I digress.)
Thankfully, the lack of sleep was well worth it, as I snagged some great yard sale finds! Here’s a peek:
I bought two seashell-shaped ceramic serving pieces for 50 cents each, a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible (retail on Amazon: $26.39) for 25 cents, The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Vol. 1) for $1, and a carved wood box that is a larger version of a box that my mom has for $1. My favorite find, however, was the Pampered Chef mini loaf pan that had never been used. It retails for $34, and I got it for $3!
If you’re keeping track, I spent a grand total of $6.25 on my purchases. Not a bad way to spend an early Saturday morning!
