Friday's Yard Sales

My hubby and I went to yard sales this morning. It was hardly worth it! Maybe I just don't know what to look for but it just seems like they were mostly baby and kid stuff sales today! Plus for some reason I was feeling just really worn out! We started at around 8:45 and by 11:00 I was fizzled out! I went to a few more after that but I was dragging. Then I decided to go to the Good Will in that town and I did actually get a few things there. I found two different sets of hot rollers which seem to sell well for me. That means if I hurry up and get them listed that I will have 4 sets in my store! Found a couple of plush items and a mans shirt too. At the yard sales I found a few little baby toys for my grandson and a few odds and ends to sell that won't be worth a whole lot.
Here's the items that I've sold the past couple of days!
Lincoln Logs Over 600 Pieces
Paid $5.00 - Sold for $35.65 - Profit $24.91
I found these next 2 items last week when I went to visit my sister. So glad they sold already!

Vintage Vanity Mirror
Paid $1.50 - Sold for $16.50 - Profit $ 11.67
Wonderful Worlds of Walt Disney 4 Book Set
Paid $2.00 - Sold for $22.95  - Profit $17.35

And I sold another magazine! It seems that the hunting and fishing ones sell really well. Wish I had more of that kind. I've got a ton of farming magazines and I haven't sold one of those yet so we'll see what happens!
Fur-Fish-Game Magazine
Paid 12 cents - Sold for $9.50 - Profit $7.50
That's about it for today. I've got to head to the Post Office and get these packages out! Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. Nice Sales!
    I always do pretty well with hot rollers too. Not usually a huge profit or real quick sale for me but they always sell in a decent time frame & make some money.
    Sorry to hear the sales were bad for you today. I took the last 2 weeks off to try & get organized with some of the stuff I already have on hand but tomorrow I am ready to hit sales again & see what I can find.

    1. Hope you find some good stuff! ~~Pam

  2. As far as garage sales, I find the ones in the newer subdivisions to be mainly kids stuff, too, but I do sell some kid's stuff, so I'm okay with it. It seems like older, more established neighborhoods, have more of the cool vintage stuff I really love to grab up.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean! I love the older areas of town...usually lots of good junk to look through! ~~Pam

  3. I agree with Kimberly. I head to the old neighborhoods before I go to the new subdivisions. Way better stuff!

  4. I do well with Lincoln Logs too - although I sure hate shipping them!

  5. I passed up a set of Lincoln logs yesterday! I should have picked them up!! Oh well, live and learn! Awesome sales Pam!
