Yard Sale Report for September 10th, 2011

I know it's been a while since I've done my typical Saturday yard sale report. I've been out making the rounds, I just haven't found anything lately and given how busy I've been, I haven't bothered to post my reports of empty-handedness.

Today was a particularly fine day for yard sale shopping. It's warm and sunny (after a week of rain) and there were quite a number of sales to investigate since there's a street festival going on in a nearby area of the city and lots of people decided to piggyback off of it and run yard sales this morning.

I was out hunting down bargains for most of the morning and came home with the following:

Two small zippered toiletry bags for my boys to use for camping trips and sleepovers, which I purchased along with a Klutz book on paper quilling ( brand new, never used with the original $24.99 price tag still on it) for $1.00 total! The book will be going into my gift cupboard for one of the girls on my gift-giving list.

I got the two packages of small Christmas gift bags for 25 cents each (I use a ton of these for food gifts), and 4 sets of 12 seasonal note cards (one for each season) along with an Anna Nalick CD (in the next photo) for $7.00. I've been intending to start writing more letters again (they are so much more fun than email!) so having the note cards handy should help me to actually make that happen.

 I finished off the morning with a couple of other finds: the basket was 25 cents and will go into my general basket stash (it may end up getting used for a gift basket). The (hardcover) book was $2.00 and is for my older son (it's the sequel to a book I just handed him to read last week!) The glass pitcher was in a free pile just down the road from a yard sale and I couldn't resist it :)

Grand total for the week:  $10.75 for 13 items, or 83 cents an item.

Did you find any great bargains this weekend?
