A Champion Yard Saler


Tee: Target, Shorts: GAP via yard sale (similar, similar)


I've become a champion yard saler, but I haven't quite mastered finding a champion yard sale.  I go around looking for them and scouring their contents like a boss, but I haven't really hit the jackpot so to speak.  By jackpot I mean a turtle sandbox for $15 like I got from the local thrift or one of these little cars for around $20.  That would be a real prize.

However, I have found a few little clutch items here and there.  Like these shorts.  I was out one Saturday morning with my mother in-law and CT and we were just strolling through some local yard sales.  There were piles of clothes on a tarp on the ground and I just happened to notice some of them were shorts that looked to be my size.  For some time now there has been quite a hole in my wardrobe where shorts are concerned so these were perfect.

I grabbed them right up and, not only were they my size (at least I hoped they were since I couldn't try them on and body after baby doesn't always agree with consistent sizing), but they were new with tags marked for $1!  Jackpot!  


I thought they would make a cute and subtle red, white, and blue look for the 4th of July.
What do you think?

Linking up with Shanna, Lindsey, and Liz

    Wait did you find one of those cars for $20?! I'm on the hunt for one myself. I did find a little tikes blue rocking horse for $15 at a cosignment shop. I thought that was a pretty good score!

  2. I never go yard selling but then I see all the good things other people buy and want to go. They make it look so easy to find great things!

  5. Love the shorts, Lindsay! I think I have the same pair in a different pattern, and i wear them all the time. I wish I had only paid $1 for mine, though!
