Thrifty Finds Monday!

Thought I would join in on the party over at Rhoda's today - she is one lady I would love to go yard saling with. You should see some of the bargains she finds!
I didn't make it to any sales this last weekend, but these are from the weekend before...

Debbie Mumm Christmas tray - $4.00

Gold plate (that might end up with some cookies on it for a friend) - .50 cents

A favorite Christmas DVD - $2.00

And a black wool Baby Gap coat with velvet collar in like new condition - $10.00.
I got these all right next door at my neighbor's yard sale. Personally, normally I would've never paid that much for the coat. But my neighbor is nice, doesn't have a garage band that plays at 1 a.m. and goes to church with me. So I would never dream of trying to negotiate. If it was a stranger? You bet I would!
The beautiful thing is I know I can sell it for possibly more on Ebay when LuLu is done wearing it this next winter!

I also got a tennis racket for Graham for $5...spent a total of $26.00! (Ouch, that is a LOT for my yard sale budget!)

So I piggy backed on my neighbors sale, (with permission!) set up one little table and sold $25 worth of LuLu's outgrown clothes in one hour!

So it was sort of like my new treasures were free! (Right?)
Thanks for stopping by!

Lulu's new coat is adorable! You will certainly make your money back after she has outgrown's too cute!

Want to go this Sat??? I want a porch chair or two. Something to sand and repaint
BTW score on the coat. You can totally sell it on Ebay in a year and Lulu will look darling in it (as always!)

Kristen, great finds! And I love to turn over things to support my habit. Love that you sold about the same amount.

I love Debbie Mumm! That tray is really cute, and I would've bought that Little Women dvd too. I'm trying to replace all of my favorite vhs movies with dvds. Yes, I think you're looking at it the right way--everything only cost you $1.00!

Precious coat! So really you only paid like $1 for all your loot after selling your own stuff. :)
