The “Stash”, especially the books.
Found some great garage sale “finds” over the weekend and books galore.
I went to an estate sale and found this.
First, a wonderful old juice bottle. Scored for .25. Will probably use as a vase.
My husband and I were heading home from our cabin and I spotted an estate sale. Poor guy; we made many stops . What should have been a two hour trip took five hours.
There is a mission store by our cabin and I always find knitting and crocheting needles. Bought these two sets of knitting needles for .25 a piece. Here are some items from last week.
But the best bargain at the mission store is the books, ten cents each. I buy them for everyone I know. I bought over thirty books! Do the math.
Don’t you just love this top one? I found it very helpful for the next book I am writing. I love old books. If you collect old old books, this is a website you might find useful.
But God often surprises me with old valuable books.
I can’t tell you, though, the number of times I’ve found amazing old Christian theology books at garage sales. I buy any one of those I can. They have proven invaluable.
Books on theology
I have one by a Jewish theologian that has given me great insight into the heroes of the Old Testament from the Jewish viewpoint. We Christians have gotten a lot of it wrong, I might add.
And who would know better about these Old Testament figures but Jewish theologians. Right?
In my world, these are the best garage sale finds.
I know people aren’t into garage sales. But honestly, I can’t see paying even a sale price for something when I can get it cheaper. Plus, it’s all about the “hunt.”
Someday, I will take pictures of all the pieces in my home that I bought at garage sales. Actually, I can’t because that would be just about everything. I’m serious. Except for upholstered pieces and mattresses, my whole house is composed of used items.
Hope you all have a blessed day.
