A few weeks ago we went to the Hillsboro town wide yard sales. I have never seen so many yard sales in my life!
We went with some friends of ours and
But I said I would be there on time and ready to go if there were donuts. Which there were. Thanks for that Lisa!
So by 7:15 AM we were loaded up and ready to hit the road for a day of yard saling.
Hello early Saturday morning. I don't look my best at this time of day...
Ready to find some bargains!
After we had stopped at our fifth yard sale in as many minutes, I realized that it would be a good idea to start keeping track. Because there was no way I was going to do this in my brain, I kept track on my brand new iPhone. God bless that little note taker thingy.
All in all, we hit 47 yard sales. And did "drive bys" of another 53.
Translation: I hauled my butt out of a truck 47 times to look at other people's random sh*t. And looked out the window another 53 times to see if the
goods random sh*t warranted getting out of the truck.
We saw some of the craziest things while we were out yard saling. I am
kind of a huge germophobe and it really weirds me out to wander through people's trash old belongings looking for a diamond in the rough. I mostly keep my hands close to my sides and follow that old rule, look only with your eyes.
I couldn't take a lot of pictures of the weird stuff, because it was little awkward. But here are some of the few that I did manage to capture. Seriously? Who owns this stuff in the first place? And then? Who in the hell wants to buy it?
Is it even legal to sell a snake in your driveway?!
By the end of the day, I was the proud owner of a new I Spy book (which I purchased for a quarter) and Eloise the movie (which I purchased for $2). And don't worry, once I got the I Spy book to school, I Lysol wiped the outside of it clean.
The hubs and I also bought a croquet/bocce ball set for $20 (hubs is still pissed about this because he thinks we got ripped off...he wishes he had
haggled bargained with the lady and bought it for $15 instead). We even managed to buy a new crate for Bodie that he has yet to free himself from. I consider that our best buy of the day!
Never did I ever think I would be a girl that went yard saling, and enjoyed it. Oh, how times have changed.
