We had a good day going to yard sales on Saturday. At the beginning of the day we thought it was going to be a poor yard sale day due to the Easter holiday. The first four yard sales we went to we didn't buy anything, but then things started to pick up afterwards.
We bought a brand new Brother sewing machine for $60.00. The Walmart price on this machine was $188 (Walmart Price) when I checked it yesterday, but they have since dropped the price to $144 to match the Amazon price.
The backstory on this machine is this...The husband's wife wanted the machine to sew clothing for her daughter, so they bought the machine, but she never did anything with it. You can tell from the photo that all the original tape is still attached along with the styrofoam. Since he paid $200 for this, he wanted $100 for everything.
He looked the machine up online for my daughter to see and noted that Amazon had it for $144, so he dropped the price to $75. My daughter counter offered him $60 and he accepted it.
This machine was brand new! It had all of the accessories with it and I've already been sewing on it. It does so many things that my sewing machine does not do. I am thrilled with this!
Other items we picked up included:
One yard of St. Patrick's Day Fabric...50¢
Lamp for Sewing...$2.00. You can see my daughter's reselling bins in the background here.
A beautiful nautical Lamp for $2.00. It needs a new lamp shade, but that is no problem. They are a dime a dozen at yard sales.
We almost lost the nautical lamp. Two other people tried to buy it, after I had already picked it up and asked the price, while we were there. One of them was the friend of the lady holding the yard sale.
Fan...$2.00. We always buy fans at yard sales. It helps us keep our home cooler and helps us to save money on the electric bill.
Ribbons...$1.00 for my new project.
And, no pictures of the following two items.
Curtain with Curtain Rod $1.00
Craft Paper $2.00
We had a great day since we both love going to yard sales so much.
