Missions Yard Sale

This past Saturday was the giant Missions Yard Sale at a local church where we used to attend. It, of course, was fabulous! I've pulled stock images of the loot we scored because I'm a bit lazy to take pictures and it's mostly been put away or is at the cleaners.

Without further adeiu:

Scout Bag

I've been coveting one of these fine little ditties. The regular price for the large "dean-o" bag is $45. I paid only $6 and it's NEW WITH TAGS! I love the color combo and I'm glad I found it at a sale because I'd have went with the pink and green in the same print. It forced me to branch out and I really enjoy it. I'm going to use this toting items in the trunk of my car and to put smaller reusable shopping bags in for carrying in one trip. It will also be a great pool/beach/lake bag come summer. I could even use it as an overnight or weekend bag.

Ralph Lauren Linen Skirt and it's PINK! So cute for summer. I'm going to wear it with a white shirt and pink kitten heels, or a brown tank top and flip flops. I also have a pink and black printed shirt to match it with black or pink strappy shoes. I think the orignal price is $49-$69. I paid $5. It appears to have never been worn or taken really good care of if it was.

Blue and black The North Face Denali fleece jacket. This jacket is currently retailing for $175 at Nordstrom and a few outdoors stores in town. I paid only $8. That's EIGHT DOLLARS! Whew I feel faint! It was a great find for Bargainista Teen. He loves it and we'll more than get our eight dollars out of it.

Cabela's Fly Tying Kit $2. Yes, two dollars. It retails in the catalog for $80. Mr. Bargainista admits that it may not get used quickly, or at all, but "it's so cool." You better believe I'm sending his bum fly fishing!

Other items include:
-a two piece black suit for Mr. Bargainista. It was $2. TWO DOLLARS! All suits were marked $2. Most were very old and very unstylish but this one was rather nice. If there is one thing Mr. Bargainista doesn't need it's a suit but for $2 we can have an extra black one in the closet. It's currently at the cleaners.
-Striped Polo shirt for Mr. Bargainista. Brand new with tags and was only $1. ONE DOLLAR! Mr . Bargainista has weeded through several polo shirts that have shown great wear so that he always looks his best for work, etc. so this was nearly a necessary purchase. Of course Polo shirts are normally $50-$75 so cha-ching for the $1 and being BRAND NEW WITH TAGS!
-Ann Taylor skirt for me. Oh my it's so cute! It's turquoise with a lime-ish design on it and little beads accenting the design and bottom hem. I'll dress it up and down. It's so flowy and cool for summer. I recall seeing it in The Loft for $59. I paid only $3! It was in fabulous condition with no signs of wear.
-White House Black Market strapless dress. It's way cute! White with a black flower motif and a black band around the empire waist as well as the top trim. It will be great for when I host bunco in June. Retail on these dresses is usually $70-$90 but this was ONLY $5. WOW!
All in all we spent less than $40 at the sale and that includes coffee.
