Yard Sales, Thrift Stores & More!

Summer might officially be over, but there are still plenty of yard sales going on! Now is a great time to be on the lookout for Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations as people are cleaning out to make room for the new.

Look for:
  • Pretty tins to package home baked Christmas goodies in
  • Cute & funky ornaments to add to your tree's collection or to attach to gifts
  • Turkey & Pumpkin decor
  • Costumes and/or props for Halloween
  • Fall/Winter clothes for kids/family
  • Fabric & craft items to make gifts with
  • Gentle used toys for gifts
I LOVE yard sales! I was able to hit quite a few today and scored some great finds for my little man. I stopped at three different sales/stores and scored everything above for only $3.50! That makes each item a little under $0.40 for name brands like: Baby Gap, Carters, The Children's Place and others.

Also, don't forget about church sales and thrift stores. One of the places I stopped at today was an area church was having a fifty cent sale, but by the time I showed up everything was $1 a bag!

Another great resource for local readers is the Another Chance thrift store located in North Berwick --kids clothes are only $0.75 each and all adult clothes are only $1!

What unique and useful items do you look for when shopping at yard sales?
