yard sale saturday

First yard sale post of the season!

Yesterday was gorgeous and since I was in town and didn’t have plans until later, I headed out to the yard sale circuit. I got back into the groove pretty quickly and found a number of bargains.

At the first stop, I picked up two baskets for $0.50. I really just wanted the taller one to house sewing projects in, but the other one will be good for company or picnics. The picnic basket I got for $1 at another sale later in the day. It’s in great shape, UK colors and it’s collapsible! The boyfriend and I will have to go on a picnic soon.

Jackson is a big fan of the blue basket as well. It’s well suited for his napping purposes.

This cool art cover Moleskin notebook ($0.25) is for a friend.

Yarn extravaganza! This woman had a booth at the local Peddler’s Mall and was getting out the business. I got all this yarn for $4. Now to figure out what to do with it…

…though it does look nice in my new basket!

Next, a couple of household items.

A new market tote bag ($1) since some of my old ones are biting the dust. Yeah, I mostly bought it because of the blue edge but the penguins didn’t hurt either. The table was $2 and is just a sturdier upgrade of a table I already have.

Then I got some clothes of course.

Some ladies with good taste were selling these sweaters. $2 for the gray and purple, and $3 for the teal 100% cashmere cardigan. Both are super comfortable. The woman selling the teal told me she was happy it was going to a good home.

I sold a few things at the consignment store and came away with an awesome dress. Since I made some money, the brand new Limited dress with tags on cost me less than $7. It looks very Kate Middleton to me and it’s fully lined and has nice pockets.

And finally, I wrapped up the morning with a quick Goodwill trip. I have a big backlog of those to post about, but this time I just got two things. An IZOD madras skirt and fireworks shirt for $3 each.

I’ve had far more luck at the Goodwill near my house but decided to try a different location this time. The layout is cleaner and it’s usually less crowded and I didn’t have it in me to battle crowds and subpar dressing rooms after my morning of yard sales.

So there you have it! First yard sale Saturday of the year. As always, a shout-out to my yard sale crew in Alabama for teaching me everything I know. Hope you all are having a lovely weekend 🙂

  1. I just had to run over and see your stuff, after seeing that lovely crocheted clutch that Pillows-A-La- Mode won. A gal after my own heart, i can tell – love finding ‘treasures’ at yard sales and Goodwill and so forth. Oh yeah…does that “UK colors” mean University of Kentucky??

    • Thank you! Yep, University of Kentucky!

      I got converted to yard sales by an enthusiastic group of friends a few years ago and have been hooked on finding deals since!

      Glad you stopped by!

      • I just KNEW it was good ol’ Kaintuck! I graduated from a college there (not UK), and will be back there in June visiting folks. And maybe even stopping at a few yard sales (love going to some away from home).
