Thrift Shop and Garage Sale Finds

Two weeks ago we were camping with family and dear friends.  One of the highlights of this trip every year is going shopping with the wives and daughters of this group since we all love a bargain and are all happy to go to thrift stores and garage sales.

One day we all went out thrift store shopping and another day we just spent 2 hours going to a few yard sales.  I found lots of great stuff, naturally, and wanted to show you my haul.  The photo shows only some of the stuff because I bought for other people, and a bunch of clothes were in the laundry when I thought to take the picture. 

Garage sale #1
  • A cribbage board with pegs for $0.50 for my dad and uncle who had been keeping score on a pad at the campground. 
  • Fun Thankgiving candles for $1.00.  I really love Thanksgiving and I have a hard time finding decorations.  
  • Two kitchen utensils to leave in the camping gear for $0.25 each 
  • 3 ice packs adding up to $1.00  
  • This sale also had a bunch of free old road maps so I picked up a few from far away states for my cousin who is wallpapering inside her camper's kid bunks with maps.  

Garage sale #2 - This was my favorite - $4.00 for everything!
