4-16-16 Community Garage Sale Finds

2016-04-16 11.26.57

A couple of days ago I happened to see a sign for a community garage sale for a nice community down the road from where I live. Today I woke up early quite coincidentally AND remembered the sale and ended up going. I was really excited by my purchases. Everything I purchased above was for .25 cents to $3 but most of the items were $1.

I was really excited about finding some Miss Me jeans for $1 that I plan to sell, as well as Guess jeans and Aeropostale jeans. I’m going to try selling jeans on eBay for the first time so I was excited to find a few deals.

I also bought some clothes for myself including a couple of maxi skirts, some cute tops for our beach vacation, and some Hippie type pants that are very popular right now. In the picture below, I also found a set of three IKEA woven baskets for $1 that I had been wanting to buy at IKEA for about $15-20 but never had.

I love community garage sales because you get to go to so many sales without driving long distances between sales. I really hope I can find a few more this summer!

  1. What great finds, especially if you can sell the jeans at a profit!

    There was a community garage sale just a couple of miles down from my house last weekend and I had planned on stopping by but then my husband came along on my outing and he doesn’t have any patience for that sort of thing so I didn’t even mention it. There’ll be others. I used to go to some around the Windermere area, people would have the best prices there because they definitely were looking for getting rid of stuff, not fleece customers.

      I understand what that is like! I will post about the jeans if they sell. That’s a good suggestion to look in the Windermere area but I’ll have to Google Map it. I’m not sure how far that is from here. Do you sell stuff on eBay?

  2. If you’re in the UCF area, Windermere is probably 30 minutes away, tops. Watch out for the cops there, it’s a known speed trap. I think the speed limit is something like 25 MPH throughout the whole area.

    No, I don’t sell anything. I just don’t have the patience for it, lol. I did sell a few books on Half.com last year, but it seemed to me that the amount of work I had to do to list them and then mail them wasn’t worth the tiny profit. Yet I pick up pennies from the parking lot so you would think I would be all over that! Another place where you can make money off the jeans is probably Plato’s Closet. Have you checked there? I think there is one in the UCF area. I used to take my teens to one in Ocoee back when they were into brand stuff.
