I don’t know when I officially became a yard sale junkie. But, I can tell you how. I inherited it. FROM MY DAD. He is the real deal.
You know the rush you get from doing something over the top, like jumping out of a plane?? That’s what I get when I discover something incredibly cool or a flat out STEAL.
This morning, I decided to get SERIOUS and find a Garage Sale app! Low and behold, others have thought of this too!!!! After I downloaded the Garage Sale Rover
app for my iPhone, I found 7 promising sales. It even plays nicely with my new GPS Drive
By the way, I LOVE Garage Sale Rover. LOVE. You can search by your location, by the day, or by item. Bringing the kids? Hunt down all the toys, lickety-split! Looking for antiques? It will find them, then optimize the route for you! LOVE IT!!
Starting off in Kempsville, off Providence Road, my oldest got lucky! He found a Darth Vader Voice Changer
. It ranges anywhere from $10-$170!! $10 on Ebay and $170 on Amazon. We got it for .50 cents!! Whooohooo!!! Then we scored some Annoying Orange figurines. We knew my youngest would cherish each one!!
We went to the oceanfront, stopping off in Shadowlawn, Old Beach, and Croatan. Picked up some more toys and pretty things for the house. The real steal of the day was a Electronic Razor FUNCTIONAL Scooter for $25. We passed. Riding bikes is more our speed!
I’m thinking my kids might like it, too.
But, the BEST part of the day was finding Blueberries in Kempsville! Yep, Kempsville!
There was a tiny sign on Gale Drive, “Free Blueberries, YOU PICK.”
Happy HUNTING!!! Did you find anything great this weekend?”
