Barn Sale....Junk Sale......Moving Sale.
There are many names for a sale where one gets rid of the stuff they no longer want. There have been times when I have had my own sale, and I profited very well. However....there have been times when I wondered why I didn't just take the stuff to goodwill and be done with it.
I love to go to Antique Sales, or sales where I can find all kinds of Old Junk. I love old buckets, furniture, kitchen gadgets and just about anything that was made or built before my birth year.
Just this past week....I went to a sale with them and I really couldn't believe all the bargains they got. Each of them purchased several items of clothing that looked brand NEW!! :) The biggest bargain of all was the purses they bought. Like $300.00 purses for just $10.00. Now this is what I call a GOOD DEAL.
Like I said.....I don't shop clothes at sales. I'm not what most would consider a "SMALL" person (that's right...I could stand to shed a few pounds) but rarely do I ever go to a sale and find clothes in sizes to fit me. I wonder why this is? I figure that most people that are bigger than a size 6, 8, 10, or 12........just don't put their stuff out there for fear of others knowing the sizes that they wear!
LOL......I'm laughing at myself for making that statement too!!
Speaking of garage sale items......I'm not trying to be ugly here, but who wants to buy someone's used underwear? Not me!
I get so tickled when I see a big box of used underwear .....marked 25 cents each. The key word is USED underwear.
Think I'll stick to my old buckets and kitchen gadgets!
