DH and I ventured out on a hot Louisiana day to hit some 25 sales that we'd seen advertised. The Lemonade stands were plenty although we didn't buy any. Some of the garage sales were priced high. However, we got lucky at a few. At one the grown-ups had stepped aside and let the kids determine the price of everything and the kids whenever asked how much something was always said .50 cents. One garage sale featured an elderly gentleman who was helping his family out. He saw me looking at a partial set of China and went to telling me the story of them and how he'd tried to sell them all day and nobody wanted them. Needless to say, he tugged at my heartstrings and I asked him how much. He quoted me $8 and I helped him out by buying them even though I wasn't completely sure I wanted them.
Anyway here is our haul for today.
The shelf was $8
The set of china plates from the elderly gentleman is 2 shelf from bottom on the right (accidentally put left earlier).
The other set of pizza plates and mini bowls were $2
The rest of the bowls were .50 each along with the two plates at top.
Birdcage - .50
Footstool under birdcage - .25
Napkin/utensil holder - $1.50 (talked them down)
Hourglass for my collection - $1
Cheese grater - .50
Cheese cloche - $1
The napkins and tableclothes ranged from .25 to $1
**** DH also found a drill but sold it to his son, and also not pictured a Barbie Powerwheels Jeep for $5
Happy Garage Saling Everyone
