Thrift Thursday is back!
Let’s recap, shall we!
Tip number 1: When you hear of a deal, take advantage of it.
Tip number 2: Take some time to sort through the trash for the treasure.
Now, on to today’s nuggets of wisdom.
This, my friends, is yard sale season!
I love it! Love, love, love it!
Which leads me to my next tip,
3. Make a list.
Always go with an idea of what you might want to get. If you are a sewing queen, look for fabric.
I got several yards for just a couple bucks. If you knit, look for yarn. I got a box of yarn for my grandmother-in-law for $2.00. Always have an idea of what you are looking for.
4. Other’s people trash, can most likely be your treasure (with a little planning).
I got these:
and a bag of vintage quilt squares, as well as a bag of scrap fabric. I love mushrooms, so that is exciting and the other stuff has endless possibilities. The quilt squares went to a friend who is making some cute little things, and the scrap fabric I can always find use for. The total for all of that.
That lady just wanted to get it out of her house. Which was an advantage for me. This is a common theme at yard sales. You can get incredible things, for next to nothing.
I hope you find these useful. Have a great weekend!
