Yard Sale Find

This past Saturday my honey and I wondered around the county - both in towns and out of town locations checking out the yard sales.

100_4593This card board box and its contents were $1.00 - while the Rubbermaid tote and its contents cost me $2.00. I purchased the box first...I could tell there were artificial flowers in it...the man told me he would sell the entire box for a buck. Then opened the lid on the tote - he said you can have them for a dollar also..then hurriedly said he would have to sell it for $2.00 if I wanted to leave it in the tote...I agreed! I could tell there were flowers in it too - not as good of condition as in the box...but the condition of the tote (other than dirty) was fantastic.

100_4597This is what all I got in those two containers. The following pictures will show a break down of all the items...there will some things I will not use - other things I will - some items will be headed for daughter's garage sale. In my mind right now, I can visualize 3 or 4 flower arrangements - so not bad for a $3.00 investment - plus the tote.

100_4612 This contains about one half of the "trash" - paper and unusable flowers.

Yard sales are fun - just never know what kind of bargain you can find.

What fun!! I love buying boxes full of things. You did good!! You will get a lot of good out of what you found usable. And, for $3 you can afford to have that much of it trash. Enjoy your find.
