I am so sorry I haven't posted anything recent. Truth be told, I have just been so busy lately that posting has been the last thing on my list to do. My friend questioned when I was going to post something new on here. Well here it is:
This weekend I had an incredible buy. I had just cashed my check and was driving to my grandparents' house to pay them for babysitting. I looked to my left and saw a Catholic Church and a sign that had flea market listed with Saturday's date. I had never been there before, but something told me I really needed to check it out. I really didn't want to go, but I surely pulled in the parking lot and ventured in to see what they had. Man, am I so thankful I did!
You have to know that my son has been needing new shoes for quite some time. I have been having him in sandals, but with the weather starting to cool down a little bit, I have been kind of worried about shoes. You also have to know, that the past two months have been really really really trying on me financially. So when I saw some brand new pairs of kids shoes in boxes at this flea market, I checked to see if they had my son's size. They did in fact have his size. I questioned how much they were, thinking they would be probably too expensive. I couldn't believe my ears when the guy informed me they were 2/$3. I asked if he meant a pair for $3, just to be on the safe side. He said, "No, they are two pairs for $3.00. If you don't buy two, they are $2.00 a pair." I was in total shock. I found two that were my son's size and I was so excited.
I also found one pair of dress shoes (brand new in the box) for myself for $2.00. I have been needing new shoes for work as mine are really old and starting to show wear.
So I happily grabbed those, thinking wow $5.00 total for 3 brand new pairs of shoes for both of us. Then I looked behind me and noticed the Parish Hall with its doors open. They were having a huge flea market there. I decided to venture inside just to see what they had. They had tons of stuff there! I had grabbed just a couple things that I saw as really good buys, when a lady screamed and yelled for everyone's attention. She informed everyone that they were having a deal. You could fill an entire big, black trash bag full of stuff and the price would only be $5!!!!
I decided to search more thoroughly since I knew I could stuff a lot of stuff in a black trash bag, and I am so happy I did so! The following is what I scored for $5 total:
- 2 great and sturdy jackets for me which I have really been looking hard to find for myself
- a few hoodies for my daughter
- a nice, thick Spiderman blanket set, with the sheets, pillowcases, and everything included
- 4 bath robes (1 my size which is really thick and great quality, 2 my daughter's size, and 1 my son's size)
- a few pairs of pajama pants
- hunting gear jackets (one bright orange one and two camo. styled ones) which I plan to give to my cousin
- some clothes for my daughter to grow into
- two swimming trunks for my son to grow into
- towels and wash cloths
All of those items for $5!?!? I couldn't believe it. I know some of you might say or think that it is just a coincidence that I stopped there. I, on the other hand, know that I was guided to stop there. :)
