This past weekend, we had beautiful sunny weather and along with that comes lots of garage sales! It seems like the first of the month is a popular weekend for sales, and there were plenty! Even though I’m buying lots for my booth, I still look for things to keep!
This canister is one of the items I bought this week that I think I’ll keep. Actually it was part of a set. You see, this other shopper grabbed up the other two as I picked up this one, even though I got there first and had just asked the lady how much for the set. My son was with me, and said “That’s part of the set, you’re not going to break it up are you?” And I told him, yes I am unless she lets me have the other two since I was trying to gather them up to pay for them. I know this sounds silly, but lesson learned, get your items quickly and put them together up near the checkout, you never know how aggressive the other shoppers will be! LOL
Anyway, I’m happy with this one red canister….I think it will be lovely at Christmas!
Later, at another sale, I ran into a lady that has a booth at one of the antique malls that I have my booth. She was leaving with a gorgeous tiger oak chair that I would love to have had! If I had been there just 5 minutes earlier, I would have bought it. Since then I noticed that she had the chair in her booth priced at $285! I have no idea what she paid for it-but I bet it was nowhere near that! Should be interesting to see if it sells quickly!
So, what about you? Have you ever almost got a bargain? I would love to hear your stories!
