Good Morning Everyone,
I woke this morning to wind and blowing flurries.
I guess I can put the bathing suit away. tee hee
I didn't get to work on anything yesterday; just too many interruptions to "buckle down" and get busy.
I did have a chance to stop at a local thrift store (and found vey few goodies). There were a couple ladies shopping next to me and talking about they were buying to resell. Do any of you do that? Most of the things I find around here are pretty much what they go for. I don't see how they make any money to resell. Now, I have done this with yard sale goodies. I have found that yard sales are more cheaply priced and usually better goods.
The predictions this year are that yard sales will be more abundanat and better goods. The economy is going to be the reason; people need extra money, besides getting rid of extra clutter.:)
Anyone planning on having a sale or just shopping at one?
We are definitely having one! lol
I buy alot of little "this and thats" at sales to decorate with. Some I keep and others( most), I don't keep for long. The thing is I don't mind getting rid of an item if I didn't spend alot for it to begin with. I just can't see keeping things just to have stuff. I feel better when I have things a little more sparse. Now sparse to some is not what I picture. I like my crocks, stoneware, handmades(hand-dids) and antique items. The "dust bunny collector goodies", I just can't see having.
Anything you want me to keep an eye out for while thrifting?
Someone ask me where I thrift store shop..............
We have two stores in Cambridge , Ohio
Goodwill Industries( on southgate parkway)
Community Treasures( on Wheeling ave.)
I like them both. Community Treasures is nonprofit(unlike Goodwill) all money made goes back into our community. I don't think alot of people are aware of that.
I also go to
Goodwill Industries, Zanesville, Ohio( Maple ave)
they have a large assortment of bigger pieces.
Let me tell ya, those stores are like shopping at Walmart!
Quite a few of them are near Ohio State University, and Devry. You wouldn't believe some of the great stuff those college kids pitch cause they don't want to pack them to take back home or to move on. I usually find lots of vintage items too. Plus, these stores use different colored tags. Everyday a different color is either 50% or 75% off!
and...... usually in May, is the West Lafayette, Ohio communty yard sales. woohoo!!
Want to know a little about this town?
Do any of the communties around you have big yard sales?
I will be back soon. Let's put together a list of yard saling tips. :)
