A Quick Nickel….or 1700 of them.

I told myself earlier  last week that I was ABSOLUTELY  not going to go out to sales. That I was going to stay at home and list. That there was NO reason to go out with all this inventory staring at me in the face.

And then I saw the Craigslist ad.

It was a former seamstress’ estate sale. And you know me and patterns.

So my son and I head over to the sale on a rainy Saturday morning. And guess what? TOTAL BUST!!!! Just a few patterns and a few books. Hmpfh.

But…… since we were out…..and we realllllly didn’t have any reason to go home right away…and….well…you know how you can talk yourself into a morning of sales. And it was even easier to rationalize because this sale was located in a big neighborhood sale…..Bonus!

Well…..it was one of my best mornings for sales in a long time.

$2.00 was the magic price number and I picked up a set of “Value Tales” books for that (yeah…I know!), a big Lego Harry Potter set (yeah…I know!), and a London Fog trenchcoat in GREAT shape..(yeah….I know!) for that price!!!!

Even my son scored 2 big Transformers….he was elated!

I sold the Value Tales books already on Sunday (yeah…I know!)….for $85.00. I like a quick nickel….especially when the car mechanic took a lot of mine last week.

So my rationalizing paid off….and I did come home and list A TON! So all’s well that ends well in the “Land of Stuff”.

I hope you had a good weekend too! For more great stuff visit Apron Thrift Girl’s blog….AND….today is the LAST DAY on Late Night Market to get your points to win the $50.00 Starbucks card!  We’ve got three big contenders at the moment…and the contest ends at midnight tonight!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!!

    The thrifting fairies must have been speaking to you very loudly and you never want to ignore them.

    Sorry to hear about the mechanic – just finished paying mine off this week.
    Happy to hear your magic number was so affordable. Don’t you love a good sale day – when you can’t seem to go wrong.

    And then you did the responsible thing of getting back to work.
    That is my weak point.
