Other People’s Stuff

We spent a long day today, in and out of the car, in and out of the car.  The purpose…It was Yard Sale Day!  The day we look forward to all week here in Florida.  The day we head out to yard sales and thrift stores.  The good part of the day is…we get to do it all tomorrow again!!

Once again, I have to apologize for no photos.  I keep trying to figure this out but there seems to be no way I can get photos to post.  I’m sad and frustrated about this.

But we’re not here to be sad, we’re here to have a good time.  I came with one suitcase and a carry on bag as most people do.  I’ll be here for another week and a half and I’ll have to be leaving with a U-Haul!!  Well not really, but thank goodness that Gail is driving back because she’ll have a Big box with my name on it.  I’ve bought at least 12 books…I know, I know…I don’t need them, but I got such deals!!   😉    Also a good thing that she got a delivery from Amazon today so that I’d have a big enough box!!

I’ve gotten several really cool knickknacks also…I know…I don’t  need them either, but again, they’re cool.  I got a great little pitcher that I think is supposed to be a honey pot, with bees on it which matches a sugar bowl I have at home.  Love it!

I got a wonderful zip front hoodie with insulated lining for $3!  It is very necessary because it’s been pretty cold here the last few days.  I got another zip up jacket in black with a great Oriental symbol in red on the back.  That was $1.50!  Trust me, you’ll be seeing a lot of photos when I get back to NJ.

Tomorrow, we’ll be heading out for more.  Last night, Gail and Margot spent an hour looking up addresses for yard sales and plugging them into the GPS.  We’re serious about our thrifting and yard saleing around here.

Tomorrow is another day and another yard sale.  We’ll see what treasures we can find!

Happy Saturday!!

  1. have FUN with the yard sales again, today, fran! you did score some real deals and treasures already…and you and your books, LOL! awesome!!!
    so glad to hear you have 10 more days left in wonderful florida.
    here is a blogging lesson i learned when i was in aruba (i left two years ago this weekend for that vacation!). one day, my computer/internet was NOT working and i was getting so anxious and frustrated. then, i decided to look at it as the universe’s way of telling me to get off the computer and into the sunshine, enjoy my holidays, i could blog/be on the computer when i got home. hope this story helps a bit!!
    have a super saturday!

  2. Sounds like you are having a great time. Enjoy your trip and happy yard sale hunting.

  3. Oh, I envy you being in Florida….it’s cold in NJ today and they’re talking possibility of a storm midweek. I’m of the mindset that it should somehow just get nice because it’s March!
    Glad you found some good finds!

  5. Yard sales are so much fun! Looks like you got some great finds!
