Craft supplies come cheap at yard sales
The rain only battered the area early Friday morning, despite dire threats by the weatherman. That left the rest of the weekend clear for yard sale shopping.
Here are some of the great items we found.
We walked into one West York yard sale and the seller immediately said “everything’s 50% off,” which is a horrible strategy for making money. We very well may have bought items at the prices they had marked. Anyway, among the items this person had was a basket full of crafting supplies, as shown in this picture and the next one. The stamps were tagged at $1 each, but they and everything in these two pictures were sold to us for one low price. (More details below)
As we mentioned in the photo above, the items in this picture and that one came to us at one great price. Guess how much? $20? $10? Nope, the seller practically begged us to take this stuff for just $5. You can’t see them well in this picture, but there’s at least $5 worth of hot glue gun glue sticks in this group. There’s also a number of unopened items, including a utility knife and decorative stars.
This little book cost us just 25 cents and tells us everything we need to know about seashells. It’s small enough to put in a back pocket. As a comparison, we priced a phone app that also promises to help you identify shells. It would cost $3.99. We’re more than happy to take the cute little book to the beach.
This handsome piece of rooster wall art was $5.
