The Garage Sale Ad SAID....

Attn: scrapbook's, card makers. 100's of rubber stamps, papers, card stock, stamp pads, paints all access. Sale date Fri-Sat-Sun 11-4...

Of course I just HAD to GO...this ad was calling my name and it wasn't far from the house. I was there a little after 10:30. One other gal was also there. The sweet lady having the sale said...it's a bag sale. Grocery bags $50.00 filled to the top, gift sized bag $10.00 filled... I left with 2 gift bags...shorty after I started looking and filling my bag MANY others came...the first lady had filled 2 Grocery bags...she was really on the "hunt" and taking everything...her hubby was there and helping her and when I left she had filled 4 grocery bags and was working on her 5th bag....Suddenly...a very large and rather "stinky" lady was pushing me!!! over stamps...I moved away from her and then she was by me AGAIN...time to leave!!! LOL...and yuk...

Look at all these embellishments...angel wings, bikes, and more....WOW ...Made in Germany they say...AWESOME !!!
Look at all these wonderful embellishments...what great finds!!! Look out gals...I have a few ideas for our little ATC swap!!!

Look at all these stamps!!! I only bought a few...I was so overwhelmed that I didn't know what to pick... A Lot of them haven't been used and she took very good care of the stamps.
It was a GREAT sale and I just had to share the "treasures" with you. I'm getting ready to stamp tomorrow and now I may have to use some of these...
Have a GREAT WEEKEND...
Warmly,
Deb :)

Oops....almost forgot to tell you...Retail price on my stash...around $360.00 What I PAID $20.00 .......................and I'm thinking she may have SOLD out Today!!! Cause when I left the table were looking empyt!!!

What fun, you sure did get a great group of goodies. My what a deal! I sometimes get that same feeling just overwhelmed and cannot make any decisions, with other buggy buyers it makes it that much worse. Today I went by an Estate Sale that is on Sat. and the gal let me look inside! No pressure (:

Brenda Eason said...

Girl can we say Jack Pot! you did very well.

Joanne Kennedy said...

Well you sure hit the jack pot! That is great! She sure lost out on a ton of money though.

Good thing you stopped by and how rude of that smelly lady!

Hugs,
Joanne

Sher said...

Okay - I guess I should have said excuse me when I was pushing past you but you were taking SO long...LOL! Too bad you couldn't puff yourself up like some animals do and emitted an odor toward her. Well,you could have done the latter. Never mind that, you got some great deals and that's what matters!
Hugs,
Sher

Angie said...

Hey woman! What you got are Dresden foils from Germany...very fun to craft with! I have a few myself but don't buy them too often as they can get pricey! So, well done! Looks like you hit the jackpot..woohooo! You made me laugh about the 'stinky' lady...!

Love, Angie

I go to lots of sales and I've never seen one run like that! Once in a while at the end of the sale they'll say fill a bag for a buck or two, but this was unique!

You really did a great job choosing--and choosing to just move out of the way of the stinky person (I can't call her a lady) was an excellent choice as well. Well done all around!

Judy said...

Wow Deb, you made a haul!! The stamps are beautiful. I've heard those stamping ladies are ruthless when it comes to their stamps. Glad you had yours picked before the "stinky lady" took over.

Janet, said...

Wow, she must have had a ton of stuff to sell it by the grocery bag full!

Shabbychick Junk said...

AAAAAAAAAAACK! WHAT A GREAT FIND! I wanted to respond to your question on what I do with my cards. I'm on the design team for Crafty Secrets and most of my cards get sent to them for store samples or get put up in their trade show booth.

You must be riding a huge garage sale high right now! yippie!
