Busy Weekend  

Posted by Johnny

This weekend was very busy here. Not only was it a holiday weekend, which means tons of traffic at the lake , but it was was also our city-wide garage/yard sales.

I have to say that this was a great year for them. The weather was great as well as the merchandise. In years past I have been disappointed with the quality of the sales, but this year there were more good sales than bad.

Then to top it off Monday Goodwill had 50% off store wide. I have to say I really over spent this week-end, but I got some great deals. Now I just have to buckle down on my grocery budget to squeeze out a little more cash to cover for my spending spree.
Here are just a few of the great deals I found:

I found this yarn at Goodwill...I was so happy just to find some yarn let alone several matching skeins with the same dye lot. There are 23 skeins total and I paid only $6 for all of it.

Vintage books for only .25ea, "The Diadem" book is from 1867.

Cast Iron skillet $1.50 quilted table runner $2.
Skillet needs seasoned but in good shape other wise. Some people are just clueless on how to take care of them so they would rather sell them. I would rather have a cast iron skillet any day over a non-stick pan. You'll never get the same results frying potatoes with a non-stick pan as you do with a cast iron skillet.

Vintage hand towels and small square table cloth .20ea. I love vintage hand towels and table cloths but I don't like to pay a lot for them. It is also hard to find them without stains on them. This table cloth does have a couple of small stains, but for .20 I thought it was worth it.

Now that the holiday is over we start softball. I really am not looking forward to this year at all. Tonight is our first game if we don't get rained out. Wish us good luck.
