With the coming of warmer weather, Yard Sale Season is upon us! To kick things off, I thought I'd share with you a recent thrifting adventure. Our local thrift store has two major sales each year; one in the spring, the other in the fall. The first week of the sale, everything in the store is half-price. The second week, it's the Most Awesome $1-a-Bag Sale. Stuff as much as you can into a paper sack, and it only costs a buck (plus tax)!
I usually spend at least two hours in the thrift store for the bag sale, because not only am I shopping for myself, but also for eBay fodder. Long-time followers of this blog know that I've got a thing for shoes and fun socks and bird prints and, well, lots of clothes in general! Selling stuff on eBay funds my online shopping habit. 🌝
By using strategic cramming techniques, I was able to get 48 items into three sacks, making each item's cost a mere 7¢!
The majority of the goodies is destined for eBay. I don't think I've listed any of the things in this photo yet, but if you'd like to see what is currently listed, you can find me on eBay under the name Dachshiemama. (I don't have a store; use the Advanced link next to the Search button, then select By Seller under Items on the left side of the page. This will work if you're using a browser to access eBay; I'm not sure how it works with the app.)
I gave these adorable Hello Kitty jammy pants to my niece, and a pile of books (not pictured) to my grandkids.
Here's what I found for myself. The choker-neck top is new with tags! The jeans are super comfortable. Looks like this would almost make a great outfit, doesn't it?
This coming weekend will be another chance to bargain shop. A nearby town is having their spring city-wide yard sale days. Then the following weekend is our own town's city-wide yard sale days. I wonder what treasures will come home with me?!
