Yard Sale Buys from Saturday



Here's a few of my buys from Saturday. I know I bought other stuff but I've already stashed away some of the stuff and didn't feel like getting it out. Like I also bought two Corning Vision glass cooking pots for $1 (for both) and some kids toys, a funky ashtray for .10, etc etc.

In the pic is a .25 large Pyrex mixing bowl. Inside the bowl is a set of 4 furniture bed lifts .50 (that's what they're called - you stick them under the feet of the bed to lift the bed up higher by about 5" or so, creating more storage spaced under your bed to hide your junk. And you know I need all the storage space I can get. Going to put them under Jacob's bed. $1 Pink Depression ice bucket. Well really I should say $2 since the seller guilted me into buying a $1 raffle ticket for the Relay for Life. .25 can of foot soaking powder, .50 never used Home Interior candle, .50 Carcaddie thing.

The carcaddie thing is a strap that attaches to your car's window - meant to help old people get out of the car easier. Will wrap up and give to my mom for Christmas, since that is the kind of thoughtful and generous daughter I am. And last item in the pic is a sweater clip. White thing in the middle is the price tag (.10). I have a friend who collects sweater clips. So now I feel like if I see one cheap to buy it for her even though she probably prefers finding them on her own at yardsales (she goes to a lot of yardsales too). A sweater clip is a thing that some women used to use to hold a sweater on their shoulders.
