Yard Sale Mania

This weekend is the town wide yard sale in Red River so I went up on Friday morning to check them out. I got a ton of great stuff for cheap and thought I was done, but when I got home my mother in law told me about one more that was happening Saturday, so I went out a second day to check that out. On Friday, I got:

These fishing waders that just happened to be in my size for $20. They say 76.15 on the box. I pointed my sister in law towards a second pair in the same size.

This cute painted saw for $7. The quality seems pretty fine and it’s signed, but I love it and I’m hanging it above our entryway (it’s going to be hilarious, stay tuned for pictures).

I got these pattern books for $0.50 for my best friend so she can make sweaters for my Bengal. And the other one is so delightfully awful vintage that it’s funny.

These doodads were all $1, canvases, cool towel and a craft container.

And this fantastic table and benches for $20. I love them. They’re vintage cabin furniture that somebody made themselves and the wood is really heavy duty.

And I bought this grate thing for my hubby for $10. It’s about 3 foot by 4 foot and about 2 inches thick. It’s like catwalk grate or something but he was stoked because he loves scrap metal. The thing weighs at least 40 lbs!

I figured I was done with my shopping for the week but when I went to borrow some pasta from my M-I-L she told me about an estate sale happening Saturday that had a bunch of cool minerals and rocks. There I got an amazing rabbit fur coat for $5 that I found on eBay for $199, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Unique-Rabbit-Fur-Raccoon-Tails-Stroller-Coat-Jacket-/400254136621?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d3101712d  Mine is missing 5 raccoon tails but is in otherwise really good condition.

The next most exciting is this dental sample thing. I can’t find much about it or any others for sale online. $1

And this thing was also $1. Any ideas what it is? It looks like a clock hand or a hose guide for a garden?

And everything else was $1 each, great sale!

  1. Great garage sales this year! So happy that you made the one in town today, that fur coat was gorgeous! I loved the cut glass vase I bought also!
    Billy and I did well in Red too, he got a really nice leather jacket for$10.00. I bought a nice set of 8 vintage placemats and matching napkins for$3.00, a wonderful deal! Lots of miscellaneous dodads and it all added up to a great outing. Thanks for sharing your finds!
