Yard Sale Finds

I went to a couple yard sales this weekend. One was at a local church that had been flooded a while back so they were trying to raise money. They had a huge pile of craft stuff. 5 containers of Lace, 1 trash bag full zippers, 1 trash bag full of patterns, 1 trash bag full of doll parts, 2 bags full fabric, 1 box if craft books and 2 boxes of thread. They said I could have all of it for $10. I had to pass I don't have that kind of storage space. I considered buying it and picking out what I wanted and donating the rest to goodwill But I don't think it would have fit in the back of my car. Plus my boyfriend would have tossed me out if I brought home that much stuff.
I picked thru it all and bought this stuff.. They only wanted $1 but I gave them $5 just to help out a little.

The box of lace I bought has a bunch I can use for minis.

I also went back to the little antique store with the trunks. They want $50 for trunk with the most damage. the top is warped from water damage. I think I'll just keep going to the local auctions and try to get one there.

He brought in these two printers trays that I really wanted but I wasn't gonna pay $40 each for them.

Wow, you certainly did hit the jackpot with your 'thrifty shopping'!

I can see why you love the trunk so much... The printer's tray is really big, I don't think I've seen one that big before. I can't comment on the price tho as I have absolutely no idea what is reasonable where you live :)
