One Yard Sale!

Today my daughter and I headed to the one yard sale here in town! I was hoping it would be a good one and it was pretty good! The lady had 2 boxes full of tea towels that her mother had embroidered while in the nursing home. Now her mom is gone and she's selling these for 50 cents each. It's kind of sad really. She did beautiful work on them. I had 27 picked out so it would have been $13.50 and I asked her if she would take $10 and she did. Then I ended up picking out 3 more so I spent $15 on tea towels! Here's a couple of more sets that I took pictures of tonight.


Aren't they lovely? I have lots more that I need to get pictures of too. I'm just wondering if these would do better in my Etsy shop or on Ebay.....what do you think?

I also bought this Remote Control Caddy still new in the box for $1.00! I just looked on Ebay and one sold for $10 and another sold for $15 so not too shabby! I'll have to hurry up and get it listed!

My 15 yr. old daughter got a free T.V. at the same sale! It's just a small one but she's been wanting one so she was happy to get it!

I found this breakfast tray at Goodwill for $2.38. I'm hoping to paint it and distress it and add some kind of vintage graphic to it to make it look neat. I will show the finished product when I get it done!

Today I sold this cute little baby boy outfit that I found a few months ago for $2.00. Only sold it for $8.00 plus $3.48 shipping. After fees, packaging and shipping I cleared $4.09.

Well, that's it for now.  Have a great day! ~~Pam

    1. I know! I just love them! Think of all the work that went into them! Thanks for commenting! ~~Pam

  2. I am always so envious of people who can embroider! There is no doubt that I can learn but where would I find the time? Have fun with those towels. I think Etsy is the better place to sell them since they are handmade & vintage-y.


    1. Hi Erica! I think I am going to list some on Etsy and some on Ebay...we'll see which ones do best! Yes, the time involved is the problem! I used to cross-stitch ages ago...actually when my older kids were I can hardly imagine finding the time! Thanks for your comment! ~~Pam
