Yard Sale Day, Daniel Island Red Balloon Sale

It’s almost fall, ya’ll!  Fall weather means cooler temperatures which means more yard sales!  I jumped right back in after a dry spell in August with the semi-annual Daniel Island Red Balloon Day sale, a community yard sale which takes place every March and September.  There were not as many sales as I’d hoped, probably due to Tropical Storm Irma, but I still did pretty well.

I snagged a nice refillable lighter and cigar cutter for $1, Wilton Big Bird cake pan for 75 cents, two little collectible plates for 25 cents each, about 30 books for next to nothing, and how stinkin’ cute are those pink Title boxing shorts for 50 cents? But I think the deal of the day goes to the two Stearns child size life vests, mint condition, both for $5.  These are selling for between $10 and $20 each online.

I’m pretty excited about that necklace display, too (shown holding a Banana Republic necklace).  I’ve been meaning to get one and there it was at the first stop I made…for TEN CENTS. Yay!

Total spent was $30, and can probably triple that amount in sales, plus keep a few things for myself.

More posts next week…stay savvy!
