I only saw two yard sale signs in my town this weekend. We had to run to Dallas Friday evening so I was looking for signs there. I lost count of the number of signs that were posted so I knew exactly where I would be going first thing Saturday morning. I decided to check Craigslist for additional sales in the area, that's when I found the ad for a Giant Scrapbook Yard Sale. I knew I had to find that one as early as possible. On my 15 minute drive to Dallas I stopped at a couple of yard sales. The first one was a moving sale that seemed pretty bare. As I started to walk away I spotted this tackle box with fancy glass beads and wire. So I bought it..
Then I was on a quest to find the Scrapbook yard sale. I tried calling the number to get directions but my phone decided to shut down on me. (my battery had exploded)
I drove around for about 30 minutes just trying to locate it from the few directions I did manage to get. Just as I gave up and was headed back towards town I happened to see the tiny 8.5x11 neon sign for the scrapbook sale... woohoo..
I drove way back into a fancy subdivision where all the drive ways were too steep to even see the yard. I spotted another sign and about 6 cars parked on the street. I climbed my way to the top of the driveway to see the most wonderfully laid out sale ever. They must have had 300+ rubber stamps on two tables in the garage. I started grabbing things I liked and they offered me a bag to carry everything. My bag was bursting at the seams when I spotted this Craftsman Rotary tool with flex shaft.. It looked brand new with the instructions still there for $10. I grabbed that up before anybody else could.
They told me I could put all my finds by the garage door so I could continue to shop. I found a couple of other things and was ready to pay when I walked past a container filled with polymer clay & supplies. I started digging thru the box to see if there was anything I wanted when they told me it was $5 for the whole box. I snapped the lid on it and added it to my pile to pay for. Here is everything I bought there.
After leaving that sale and getting lost again. I finally made it back into town where all the yard sales were. Most of them just had clothes and purses. I stopped at a church yard sale and found some interesting books there.
After that yard sale I stopped at the unusual thrift store I had gone to last week. They have their new arrivals in the front room so I didn't spend a whole lot of time there but I did pick up this stuff
I didn't find anything at Goodwill this week. Everything was over priced again.
