Not around here they aren't, I belong to forums and read all the blogs I can, especially prim ones or the ones who like to decorate and it seems like everyone gets such good finds. Not me, I have went to our local one at least once a week on a different day of the week and nada!!! Just old clothes, old tupperware and dented pots and pans, games (who knows if all the pieces are there) scruffy, stuffed animals and books. Granted I do so like to read and I have found some books that I have enjoyed but I want to find some really neat project that I can redo to make it more prim...here is all that I've found:
1. Round wood bowl that was small for .50 that I painted brown over black.
2.Very small brown and beige stoneware jug for 1.00
3. Larger , wood bowl that was navy with stars that I painted black for 1.00
4. A pair of Calvin Klein shorts for 2.99 that I have worn alot.
Maybe I should try again when the yard sales start around here, maybe people drop off what they don't sell which would be the weekend here. When I'm there I see people going out the door with bags and I say to myself what are they buying? Sure beats me.LOL Oh, and one time I did buy a brand new mop for 1.00 which I still have so maybe I have found somethings because now that I have all down before my eyes I use everything I have found!!!
