Normally on Sunday or Monday I show you what great thrifty finds I got over the weekend, but this weekend was pretty much of a bust. Went to three, count it THREE, church sales and they were all disappointing. Oh well, it happens.
On the way home I ran across a garage sale that hadn’t been listed on Craigslist. It was manned by a very nice older gentleman. I use the term gentleman because he was well dressed for a garage sale. Dress pants, short sleeved dress shirt. No tie though, but definitely a step up from a dirty t-shirt and shorts.
Normally I can size up a garage sale in 10 seconds and get out quick if it doesn’t have anything I’m interested in. And there was not much that I was interested in at this sale. But this man was obviously bored, very talkative and such a sweet older man that I spent close to fifteen minutes talking to him.
I would have felt bad about just walking out of his sale not buying anything. So I bought this cookie tin for a quarter.
It was a quarter well spent.
