With garage/yard/rummage etc season in swing I was wondering if you ladies have ever made some fantastic scrappy finds? (or on Craiglist even - Iíve heard mythical tails of amazing deals found there, too)
A friend of my mom found some lady selling tons and tons of SU! Sets for $1-$5 each - Oh was I jealous!!! Iíve never found anything for myself buy my mom goes out a lot and has found some pretty nice steals (but nothing like her friend). She found me my favorite craft knife, a couple of SU! Sets, and some never opened cuttlebug folders for pretty cheap.
My LSS holds a ďgarage saleĒ twice a year, too, but itís a mad house so Iíve never braved it on the first day when all the good stuff is still there. Iíve gone toward the end but at that point it was pretty picked over and no good deals.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy! ~*~ Blog ~*~bfp Chart
I haven't found anything, but my mom has. She just got a whole bunch of SU stuff off of Craigs list.....actually she went to go look at the stuff and found that the lady had more to sell than what was listed so she got to pick and choose whatever she wanted and make an offer. Sounded like she got a REALLY good deal.
I think the closest I can come is getting my BigKick off of ebay for $59.00 ($39.99 for the BigKick and $20.00 for shipping). I thought it was a pretty good deal where they are $99.00 new.

technicaly I guess I have. My neighbor is moving and has a bunch of SU stuff she's trying to sell before she does. She's having a garage sale for it, but I get first dibs. Stamps, SU cardstock and papers, stickers etc... at "make offer" pricing

I have tons of stuff.... I use Kijiji here... Craigslist isn't big here at all.... I have found unopened Cricut cartridges for less than 30 dollars. A girl had bough so much of what she would need to start scrapbooking and decided she didn't want to do it anymore, and I got EVERYTHING she had for 75 dollars. That included over 1,000 sheets of cardstock and a crop back that fits my Cricut and all my cartridges with room for more.
I have found a couple things!! A K&C (I believe) chalk set, with 3 sets of colors in it, for $1, and some random embellies for like, 5, 10 cents each. Oh!! And a SU! stamp wheel for my roller for $1.50.
I actually found a bunch of stuff at Goodwill awhile back (stickers, papers, etc) and an album in perfect condition. A friend of mine just sold me her CM bag that has a photo trimmer, 3 paper bunches, 2 corner punches, a bunch of paper and stickers, 4 page templates, and 3 different sized albums all for $40.
I haven't been garage sale hopping yet although I really want to.
