Ahh what a week. 4th of July falls on a Saturday and you know what that means. Garage sales are few. Plus this is the week when all Pentecostals from our state get together for fellowship and fun at a thing we call Campmeeting. Yep, you guessed it - we're Pentecostal. So uber busy this week and not much time to thrift shop either. However, I saw an ad in the local paper promising to be the Largest Garage Sale our town will have all year. It was held at a church and seemed to be promising. So hubby and kids loaded up in the car with me Friday morning and off we went. All I can say is Yikes. Everything was laid out on the catwalk of the church, nothing was out of boxes, if you wanted to stand around and dig through boxes all day you could get some good buys. I found one box that had books in it and decided to dig since I love to read. Ended up with 4 books at 25 cents each. Seen another box with DVD's and every DVD I opened to make sure they weren't scratched - guess what - wrong DVD in the cases. I never could find any DVD's that matched any of the cases. I figure some people probably bought the DVD's without checking and got home to be very upset and disappointed.
So we saw one more ad in the paper and off to that garage sale we went. This was one of those that give garage sales bad names. All brand new stuff that the seller was vending. You guessed it - purses for $30, sunglasses, flip flops, perfume - all at new prices too. Ugh!!!
The we saw one more ad for an estate sale - ran down the road to find it only to find out that it didn't exist. We found the house number but no signs of any sale going on there. No cars, nothing.
Plus I just found out I won a chalkboard from another fellow blogger. Can't wait - so excited. A big thank you to all the blog owners for taking the time to host giveaways - they're great.
