Garage sales in 105 degrees

July 23rd, 2006 at 01:05 am

Oh boy.

Nana and I braved the heat and hit the yard sales today.

I got 3 things.

1 Hardcover Steven King book that DD3 wanted.

1 Small purse with long strap...super cute, looks new... $.75 and inside were at least 100 tickets for our family fun center that DD3 can turn in for a prize of somesort, plus a couple of free tokens. I asked the girl if she wanted these out of the purse and she said, "No, consider this your deal of the day"!!

And what I consider my true FIND OF THE DAY...a lovely Rosina China Co, Ltd. tea cup and saucer that I will give to a friend for her b-day next month (she collects tea cups).
I paid $8 for it, and got home and looked it up and it is valued at $42-48 online. It is beautiful!!

Nana got a few deals- her best, a looks-like-new windbreaker for one of the kids $.50 (it is a really cute pink and yellow)

We only made it till about 1pm, and it had hit 105 and was expected to hit 110 so we headed home, very happy with our finds!

    I started out early this morning at 8am there was only a few yard sales out because it looked like it was going to rain at any moment. I found four yard sales that had decided to try their luck with the chance of rain, but by 9:30 it was pouring and yard saling was done.

    If I had to choose I think I would take rain over 105 any day. That just sounds horrible but I am from NH where it never gets 105 I don't think my body could take it.
