Yard Sales where price tags don't mean anything

I headed out to a few yard sales alone Saturday morning. Jeff was home smoking meat to stock our freezer. I only went to 4 and bought things at 3.
At the first sale I found this Fisher Price swing for Elizabeth to use at our house. It was marked $8.....

I also got these utensils there, they were marked 1 cent each.
So when I was checking out, the seller said - "I think that swing is $2 and you can just have the utensils"
I corrected her and said the swing was marked $8
She laughed and said "oh well, you can just have it all for $5"
I took it, I've been looking for a nice swing and have not found one for less than $25.

Now, on to another sale. See the price sticker on this pot - says 50 cents.
The other pot was not marked. I asked the seller how much they were, she said the tall one was $1 and the long one was 75 cents. I showed her the 50 cent price tag and handed her $2. She gave me back one quarter for change.
So apparently her price tags did not mean what they said either!
But I liked the pots and they will be great for backyard vegetables so I did not argue.

Gavin gets a pair of Carters jeans - marked $1 and paid $1.

  2. Went to a couple of yard sales last weekend and my daughter hit the jackpot! The lady sold her a whole set of Blue Willow dishes, bowls, teacups and saucers, including some blue Anchor Hocking tumblers for $25! Most of the Blue Willow was made in England. Nothing was marked, so she asked about a serving bowl and was quick to say she'd take it when told the price for the whole kit and kaboodle! :D You never know what you'll find!

  3. Great deals Rhonda! The baby looks so cute in the swing with her arm thrown up to the side like that. She is a sweetie! I also like the utensils.

  6. Hahaha...you are such a good story teller...so funny how sellers differ from yard sale to yard sale. All wonderful bargains but the little carrier/swingy thing was a steal! Thanks so much for sharing your adventures.

    Warmly,

  7. Well, you still got some great deals. My pet peeve is to go to a yard sale where nothing is marked.

  8. Yep! That is the funny thing about garage sales! I haven't hit any yet this year. Our place is so small that I don't have room for anything since we moved. :-)
