Garage Sale!!!

Unread postAuthor: STHORNE » Sat May 17, 2008 3:00 pm

Hey everybody! I just got back from an awesome garage sale and plan on going again tomorrow. I went to probably 12 sh!tty sales when I finally hit a "Church Garage-Sale". They are the best because they are usually donated stuff and sell for super cheap! I arrived there at about 1:30 pm and I guess they were getting tired of the sale and wanted to get rid of it all, because they handed out paper bags (the big grocery ones) and said, "Anything you can fit in the bag, 2 dollars!". :shock: It was fricken pandemonium. People running around and I was shoving everything in these 2 bags I got that I could. As an end result....I got this (all for $4.00):

In case you guys can't see or can't tell what the stuff is, I'll read it off left to right starting at the top/first row: Badger's Hat, Toaster, Weird (but cool) cylinder thing, Book Light, Lava Lamp, Stainless Steel Thermos, New Computer Speakers and a Cordless DustBuster.
Bottom Row: (2) Curling Irons, Wall Clock, Radio/Alarm Clock, Computer Key Board, Elastic Excersize Bands, Answering Machine, Computer Mouse, Telephone Cords and some Head Phones. All of that for $4.00!!!! :D
(I also got some blankets and netted bags, but they are not pictured)
I also got a Golf Bag and 1 wooden Driver for $1.00 but I didn't feel like taking a picture.

Then I went to another Garage Sale and purchased my last item for the day. Wanna know what it was....it's a Grinder! Used but works like new...
Very smooth running, lightly used, and even has a built-in Lamp!!!! Here's a pic:

The price tag said $20.00 for it and I offered the guy $15.00.... He then said, "Hell, I would take 10 for it...". lol, So the deal was struck! Got myself a perfectly good grinder for $10.00!!!! :D

Well, now that you heard my story, tell yours! If anybody has bought something and gotten an awesome deal (whether it be a garage sale, or just at you're local hardware store) that they would like to share, Tell the story! I'm so fricken happy :D Whooooo-Hooooo!!!

I recently bought a sodastream bottle at a carboot sale for 50p, not bad considering new ones are £10.
