Yard Sale Saturday ~ April 21, 2018

We got up bright and early and packed our breakfast & lunch for yard sales. I always make four sandwiches and cut them in half and put them in this container. And we always bring water to drink with us for the day. This metal insulated container will keep ice all day long. 

These three fabrics came from one sale and include Finding Nemo and Clifford the Big Red Dog. She had $3.00 marked on them for all three. 

The Nemo fabric is two yards worth of material. It was such a great price and would cost me much more at the fabric store. I have very definite plans for these two materials. 

I love this dish towel. It's Fiddler's Elbow and if you Google them, you can see so many other cute patterns they sell for anywhere from $12 to $15. This one is brand new and I paid $1.00 for it. 

Everything else on my list came from a church yard sale. My daughter and I bought two boxes worth of items here and paid $14 for the boxes. We counted all the items we bought and they ended up costing us 33¢ each. 

Two brand new 100% cotton dish towels, still had the starch in them from being brand new. These make great pieces for sewing projects, so I added them to my sewing stash. 

Two more dish towels. These are for my sewing project I still want to blog about soon. 

This is a shower curtain and made of canvas. I bought it to upcycle and will be revealing tomorrow on the blog what I'll be making out of canvas in the future. 

A Tigger flannel sheet, which I will be using to make more flannel wipes. I love the flannel wipes I made here and would love to have more on hand, so that is what this piece and the next two sets of flannel sheets are earmarked for. 

I found four men's brand handkerchiefs new in the package. The package was rough, so I removed it for this photo. 

Also, this beautiful jar with ribbon and trinkets, and underneath is a beautiful piece of fabric, possibly a scarf, with beautiful edging and embroidered hearts.  

I've been looking for some very light weight material to make my own produce bags and this material suits that purpose. 

A brand new in the package Florida Gators flag, which I plan on reselling. 

A cute box for birthday cards, which is filled with new birthday cards. One movie with eight different animal movies on it. One cookbook, one book, Life Lessons From My Father's Garden, one Nintendo DS Mario game, which I plan on reselling, and a Food Network spatula. 

The church yard sale was the best one with the prices. I didn't even look at everything they had because they had so much. We love to go to these because we can get so much more stuff in one place and the prices are usually just great. 

Did you get to yard sale this week? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

  1. WOW! jealous of your finds! Church thrift shops around here seem to be closing down as they are typically staffed by aging volunteers with no younger ones interested in stepping into their shoes. Our Salvation Army downtown closed several years ago, "due to negative profits>" The building remains vacant. It was one of several that closed throughout CT. Goodwill prices are far from great, Savers is fairly new with better prices. Can't wait to see your new finished projects.

    1. Thank you, Carol. We have had some church thrift stores close too. It’s a shame as they used to be really good to shop. Our Goodwill has high prices, so we usually only go on 50% off day. I was happy with this sale on Saturday.

  2. Great finds. We went to a church sale last weekend....all I found though was a maxi skirt for Rebecca, a coloring book for Ben and a basketball jersey for Jacob. You did a great job!

  3. Jackpot! Good thrift shopping. The frog towel is special. Eager to see what you do with the shower curtain.

  4. You hit the jackpot. What wonderful finds!
    I can't wait till sales start here again.

  5. Awesome finds! I can't wait to see what you'll be making.
