The joys of yard sales!

Since moving to Texas, I've gone through a bit of a yard sale slump. They just don't seem to be as prevalent in this part of the country, at least in our neck of the woods. Boy, that sounded Southern, didn't it?

Today a friend was having a sale, so I bribed the kids with donuts and got them out of the house early. After spending a few minutes at my friends' house, we headed down the street and made a stop at her neighbors.

Within 30 seconds of getting out of the car, I had struck up a conversation with the owners of the house. Yes, I do that often. Would you believe they were from Idaho, just up the road from where we use to live? What a small world! We enjoyed some great conversation about "home".

Here's the best part - I walked away with nine shirts/sweaters, four skirts and two pair of pants for ONLY $20 and they all look brand new!

Oh how I love a good deal.

  2. Ang,
    Congrats on your new clothes. I enjoy yard sales too; but since Saturday is the only day that David can sleep in (7:30 lol) he wants me beside him. By the time I get to the garage sales most of the good things are taken.
    Happy Week-end!
