Show & Tell #2 - Take No Thought

Kelli, at There Is No Place Like Home, Hosts Show & Tell every Friday. It is so much fun to read others and to post a show & tell. Go check it out. Here is mine for this week.

I am not a garage sale person as a rule. However, yesterday a friend of mine called me around noon and told me one of her neighbors was having a garage sale and that she had a lot of items in my size that were really nice, some with the original price tags on them. My husband does not particularly like garage sales at all but said he'd

go over there with me.

This is what I got!!

  • 2 skirts with jackets

  • 2 skirts with sweaters

  • red & black slacks & top

  • pink dress & jacket

  • 2 pair slacks with original price tags

  • 4 skirts, 1 with original price tag

12 items, 3 brand new and 9 almost new. When I asked the lady how much this would be (nothing was marked with prices) she said "$72" and before I could say "I'll take them" she said "$60, I'd like for you to have them"!!!

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow:

for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 6:33 & 34

i'm glad you figured out the "comments" problem 'cuz i wanted to leave a comment on this post... just to say, what wonderful finds. i'm not a garage sale person either, but it sure feels good when you are able to find things you need or can use at a good price.

Now that is a deal! We don't have garage sales here with all the theft and crime however twice a year they hold a children's sale and 30% of proceeds go to orphans. I didn't buy anything but I sold over R700 ($100+) in misc. stuff. I was feeling pretty thankful!

You found a great bargain.

I will occasionally stop at a garage sale, but I have never found the bargains that I hear others talk about. You never know!

Oh, I do love me a good bargain and I do love to see others get them, too. Hooray!
