  • Yard Sale Bargain

    Woo Hoo!! Youngest son just got home and had stopped at a yard sale on the way. He bought me a 2 qt Dutch Oven, never used, still in the box for $5.00!! I sure raised that boy right!!

    Has anyone else come across some good deals lately at yard/garage sales?

    It's a Lodge and looks like this one.. (battery is dead on my camera :()

      I bought two # 8 Griswold duthch ovens off Craigslist a few months back, got both for $40.00 total . The lady said they had belonged to her dad , but didn't go with her "kitchen decor " , they fit right in with mine !

            COOL BEANS! Lodge, pre seasoned and ready to go. Lucky you. I picked up a shower gift a few weeks ago. 12" frying pan (Lodge) for $11.00 at a discount shop, my wife ribbed me until I finaly took it to the office and presented our gift. That Lodge cast iron is the bomb. Good find OZ!

              Those folks are gonna realize they made a HUGE mistake in selling the stove here in the near future. Excellent find and your son has some good smarts in recognizing the deal.

                  Rsanders, mine fits right in with my decor as well. :D Good find on Craigslist!

                  Paintball, I bet you were thrilled when you found the camp stove! I know I would be.

                  Path, I don't think I could have given it away! You are a stronger person than I am. :)

                  HileTroy, they obviously didn't know what it was used for! About 4 years ago, we bought a huge deep freeze at a yard sale for $5.00. The elderly lady was moving in with her daughter and that was the price the daughter asked for it. Still works to this day! :) I love a great bargain!

                  Yes, all of my kids are pretty good at spotting bargains. When my oldest daughter was in about the 3rd grade, I couldn't afford to buy her a winter coat. We just happened to visit an out-of-the-way second-hand store with a friend and she found a beautiful, THICK coat for $2.00, perfect condition. Phew, I was relieved. :)

                  Though now we are not in such dire straits, good, old habits die hard. ;)

                    Check out the Salvation Army or other thrift stores. I found a battery operated radio/tv/siren/flashlight/lightbeam (granted the tv won't work being analog) for 3 bucks!
