I hit 2 rummage sales and one yard sale this past Saturday and want to share what I got. I’ve said it before, but Show and Tell was my favorite thing in early grade school.
Before I launch into the finds, let me reiterate that I’m definitely anti-clutter and have unloaded A LOT of stuff over many years and routinely get rid of things. Just last week I was in a certain kind of mood one day and told myself, “Find five things to get rid of” (which makes it kind of a game). It took about 1.5 hours to hit my goal which I took as a very good sign – it means I’ve already gotten rid of most of the stuff that I should. Along the way I found a couple things for recycling too but they couldn’t count in the 5 items.
So, onto my acquisitions. At the first rummage sale, one with many tables at the fire house, I took my time and found a couple good things.
On first glance I thought this necklace might be a vintage costume piece. It wasn’t but for a buck, I still liked it. These pictures don’t do it justice; it’s a brighter more attractive gold.
Modeling the hair clip (I’ve been growing my hair & this clip particularly makes it look super long):
I next went to a church holiday fair which included “White Elephant” items.
My last stop was a local yard sale. I didn’t get much but it was worth stopping.
For under $6 I got all these useful-to-me finds. And it was fun.
