Garage Sale Season has not yet begun around here, and there have not been estate or house sales either. If one wants a thrift fix there are only the usual shops – Salvation Army, Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul. Even those, for me, are a good drive away so I try to hit more than one along with my grocery shopping and other errands.
Unknown to me 2 of the stores were having clearance sales.
This is not an annual event or seasonal.
All “sales” are at the whim of the onsite manager.
The sale at one store was a bag sale. Usually I love those and have become quite proficient in loading a bag to full benefit. I guess I am not the only one as this store decided their own volunteers would fill the bags.
Not a large bag but only $3, so after watching the volunteers do a decent job I decided to take a chance.
While most people were trying to get jackets and women’s suits, not many of which will fit into a bag but at $3 even one was an OK deal, I took a different route.
I wanted quantity!
I filled my bag with new (unworn) children’s clothing as best I could.
I also tried to get things for a variety of seasons.
I did find a few things to fit myself and managed to make room in the bag.
I think the volunteer was upset with me saying “Oh- one more thing.”
I was doing my usual shopping as I check out and adding other people’s discards to my bag.
(I looked up the Hawg tank online, retail value $20.)
Since there are no small ones here all my great finds will be for resale.
Any suggestions on the best place to sell them?
