Not too many yard sales today, just hit a few on the way to the credit union for a bit of business.
Of what there was,
the first one wanted $15 for a used swimsuit, $10 for a blue tank top, and $20 for an Old Navy cream colored plain men's sweater. I tried pretty hard to stifle a laugh, but I did take up the tank top, thinking DD might like it, and asked to confirm the price. From the look of shock on my face when she confirmed the sticker of $10, the seller's response was, "that was originally $30. What price would you say it should be?"
"Well, normally, it is one dollar per clothing item, unless a fancy dress or a really nice/unworn item, and then usually never more than $5."
she took the item back with a shrug and I drove away.
At the next sale up the hill, I bought a lovely dress, sort of a sundress that could be dressy or casual with accessories, that the owner said she had worn to a hot outdoor wedding. Cost- $1.
I also bought two tops for 50 cents each at that sale. Another customer had also been at the expensive "sale" and we laughed together, as did the owner of the current yard sale. She was happy to get rid of stuff, and pricing more expensively than GoodWill was just crazy!!
I also got a steering wheel cover, in a red print that matches the color of my van, for the slightly unusual price of 55 cents, instead of 50 cents. I happily paid and felt really cool as I drove to the credit union.
