Yard Sale Tales: 8/27/11 edition.

So baby's been sick. Like for real sick. Worse than a couple weekends ago...although I think this is actually a continuation of that sickness. Daycare called Tyler on Thursday telling him that we needed to come get her, so he left work at 1 and stayed home with her. When I got home, we took her to the doctor's office. No ear infection, thank goodness, but a pretty crummy sinus infection that's left her and us sleepless. She stayed with my parents on Friday and has slowly been improving.

Tyler said there was no way he was going to get up early and go yard-saleing and Addy had me up at 5:30 anyway, so I figured if she was napping when 7 rolled around, I would try to go to a couple near the house while her and Tyler snoozed. Luckily she decided to pass out a little after 7, so I went to a big 6 family yard sale that had a lot of stuff at fairly high prices. But it was GOOD stuff.

Clothes, mainly. Brand name clothes, most looked like they'd hardly been worn and I scored two things with tags still on! I'm burnt out on trying to hock toys and household wares, so this was just what I needed. I wanted books, too, but they wanted WAY too much on books. I got there really early and saw a girl haul out a huge box of kid's books. I then watched her pull out a pen and price tags and write $2.00 on every tag. These were golden books and paperback kid's books! I couldn't believe she was going to put $2.00 on every single one! There was no way I was going to haggle with these people where the books were concerned, it was getting busy and I just didn't have the energy.

Boy's Adidas tech shirt. I figure it'll be appealing to the little football players

Men's XXL Polo pony shirt. I've just realized the picture makes it looked stained, but it's not, those are just shadows. I might actually have to iron this.

Adidas Climalite polo, size L

Another one with tags!

One family had a whole lot of athletic shoes. These looked to be in good shape and they only wanted $2.00 for them. It's basketball season, so I thought someone would want them. They're a size 13 1/2!

Boy's reversible Remington hunting jacket. I thought this was pretty great and it looks brand new! Not many completeds for this, but I put it up as BIN for $29.99.
Total spent at that yard sale: $27.00

I also bought a few things at a charity yard sale for the Crisis Center. Some hot rollers, a first edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and a really old crochet pattern book, all for $7.00...which I thought was high, but I figured it's for charity, so whatever.

Sales this week haven't been very exciting. One of my Revere Ware pots I bought a couple of weekends ago sold for $29.99 and a lot of Dora books and tapes sold for $9.99. That's been it for the week! Yuck.

  1. I love finding clothes with the tags still on especially in the larger kids sizes. Hope your little one feels better soon so you can get some sleep.
    Be sure to check my blog tomorrow. I'll have all my finds up from today.
