Yardsale Tip - How to Hang Clothes at a Yard Sale



Displaying clothes for sale at a yardsale is usually pretty tricky. A lot of people will stretch a rope between two trees but what happens a lot of the times is that the rope droops (due to the weight of the clothes). And then all the clothes get bunched up in the middle.

Anyhow, here's a pic I took last Saturday - I thought the person having the yardsale had an ingenious way to hang clothes. She just took an unused soccer goal stand that they were no longer using and put it on it's side and stuck a cinder block on it to keep it weighed down.

And here's what I bought last Saturday. Most expensive thing was the $10 new Le Creuset frying pan. Other notable things are the green depression glass bowl ($4) and the vintage Sesame Street playhouse ($5). All the FPLP (that's Fisher Price Little People for the uniformed) were .25 each, and some are the older wooden ones. Oh and how can I forget the new-in-box Stripper Pole Alarm Clock (it was .50) The big mylar balloon fish has a $9.99 price tag on it (but that was the store price). I paid $2 (I will take it to the florist at the grocery store for helium).

That frying pan is a GREAT deal.

Zak - I know! The seller told me I got the deal of the century. It was underneath an old dirty griswold frying pan so that's why I don't think anyone saw it before me.

I love OLD FPLP! I picked up some years ago for super cheap and my kids had no interest in them. So of course, I sold them for more than I paid for them on CL.
