Thrift Store Yard Sales Tag Sales and Junkin, oh what fun it is!
Hello, and Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies everyone. Glad to have you stopping by to visit. I have been MIA again, and I apologize for that. I work to keep up the main page of my blog LilacsNDreams along with working on LilacsNDreams Shoppe page too.
That time of year I have been itching for, and I am sure some of you as well have had this feeling too. When the weather is nice, and we can get out to do some descent thrifting, and hitting some of them yard sales. I haven't done a whole lot myself. Just a little bit here, and there. Sometimes I do stop to look, but just don't see anything of interest either. Sometimes is depressing...especially if you are really in the mood to go diggin, and find something. But, that is ok. I have plenty at home to work with, clean up, repurpose with, etc. Yeah, I have a few things here to stay busy with yet so I can get them listed with different internet shops I have. Yes, I will make sure to share here also with all of you:)
What you see pictured above is what came from the last sale I attended. I love the vintage scale I found, adore the wooden hangers found...got some ideas for my walls with these, and as you can see a few other little goodies too. In this area some of the prices on these certain sales are something else! Some items will maybe have a price of what it sold on ebay....which means that will not happen all the time. Sometimes they use a book to mark a price which when items are resold on ebay, and such they generally will sell for 1/2 of what the book is, and just different things like that. Then, once in a while I can get lucky, and find a sale where they are honestly cleaning out their house, and trying to rid of the extra to make room, or are moving, or something like that. I can really have fun with those looking, and filling my arms with all kinds of goodies found:)
Well, I was taking a quick break from dusting upstairs, and trying to figure some things out. Waiting on a plumber, and contractor....story of my life past few months. Someone at door, and I better scoot. Thanks for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies. Ya'll take care, and drop by again soon. See Ya!:)
