SCORE! I triumph once again at a garage sale.
I was having fun haggling with the gentleman running the garage sale when my little eyes spied a bundle of 2 dozen yard sticks leaning against the wall. The guy told me that he was paying $150 a month to store his mother's estate goods and was finally putting it all up for sale. Well, from that statement alone I knew he'd take anything offered for what he had on sale. We'd already bickered for a number of other things and I was mostly getting things for 1/2 off his asking price. I told him he could just throw the bundle in for free and he countered with a dollar. How great was that? So naturally I offered $.50 and he countered with $.75 saying he had to win just once. I ponied up $.75 and went VERY HAPPILY on my way.
My nephew Brad was more than willing to assist me in the studio stapling them unto a old white board my son had scribbled all over with permanent marker. Time to repurpose.
Brad diligently planned the color scheme of the sticks. We hung the star on a nail but figured we could replace it with other vintage holiday items throughout the year!
Score! Total $.75 Would you have bought them?
