Rummage Sale Trail

June 6th, 2016 at 06:45 pm

In my state they have a rummage sale once a year that runs through about 100 miles of small towns. I had heard of it before but never gone. Now that I live in a small town closer to the rummage sale trail my Mom and I decided to check it out. We started with the town closet to mine, about 30 mins away....we were a little worried that we would only find duds and end up driving a lot....well we ended up only hitting that first small town! They had 30+ rummage sales! So we hit up most of them which took about 5 hrs and by then we were bushed so had lunch at the small town café and called it quits!

We found lots of items to resell, the big score was 20 little girl swim suits for .50 each! I put them up on FB right away and they have been selling like hot cakes for $3-$4 each! We already sold $34 worth (which only costs us $4.50!) and I have several more that should be picked up tomorrow. What a great turnaround! I also got a few pieces of adult clothing that were really nice for cheap and some kids books.

I found a fishing box with a lot of goodies in it for $5 for MO, so he was happy! Also a pair of DocMartens for me for $1.50!

Super fun event and good day with my Mom I can't wait to go next year!

    They have something like that in TX too - only for antiques.
