The Thursday Thrift: Yard Sale Season and Block Parties


Is it yard sale season yet?  Maybe where you are, but I haven’t had any luck yet this spring.  Last week I attempted to go to two yard sales that didn’t seem too out of the way, so I thought.  They ended up being phantom yard sales that didn’t even exist, and one of the said yard sales was almost in the next county!  Out of the way indeed.  So began my first attempt at yard sales this year, and it was a big disappointment.

I am over it though.  Another few weeks, and I am sure there will be more than enough to make up for these two that were not.  And after last year’s great yard sale successes, I am looking forward to this season in full swing!

On Tuesday, we went to a downtown block party.  It was hosted in part by my guy’s work and it was something we were somewhat obligated to attend.  Which was fine, really.  We went to last year’s and had a really good time.  So, what to wear?  I asked my guy if he thought a nice thrift store outfit would be appropriate.  He laughed and gave me a funny look.  (I don’t think he thinks of thrift stores in the same way as I do.)  He then said to wear something nice.

Okay, how about yard sale nice?

The day I got this dress may have been my best yard sale day ever!  I got several brand name, like new dresses all in my exact size!  When does that ever happen?  For me, almost never!


I love the colors and the print of this dress.  I was a little unsure about the length, I thought maybe it could be shorter, but I think overall it is alright.

Any other yard-salers out there?  Do you find you have more luck finding things at yard sales, or thrift stores?
