Garage Sale on 4/9/11
Have I mentioned that I LOVE garage sales? I got what you see in the picture for only $2.75... DH & I went to this garage sale yesterday where almost everything was a quarter! I got the following...
2 Van Gogh paintings
a pineapple cutter
pair of sandals
1964 Golden Book, Charmin' Chatty
Hooked on Phonics
Giant copy of Tawny Scrawny Lion
Oh, The Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss
Black Scrapbook Wall Collage (more or less a picture frame)
& DH got a dolly step ladder combo (not pictured)
Each item was only a quarter like I said, so we spent $3.00 for everything! Everything's in good shape; the clock has a price tag of $37.99 on the back! The scrapbook frame has never been used and that appears to be the same case for the pineapple cutter. The big book has a price tag of $4.88 from Sam's Club, the sandals are Merona (Target), and the mirror says Target on the back too. I've been needing some new shoes, especially in brown, since the dog ate my brown Crocs (which I got for a buck at a sale last year). The Van Gogh pictures are already hanging up in the loft as is the clock. The mirror will go in the bedroom. The Tawny Scrawny Lion book, I'm sure my students will get a kick out of due to its size. A Dr. Seuss book for that cheap is hard to come by! I'll glance through the Hooked on Phonics materials to use for ESL. And the Charmin' Chatty book I'm going to list on Listia to hopefully appeal to some antique lovers.
