It's that time of year again. It's that time of year in Southern PA when you will see a yard sale on every corner of every street and in every development e-v-e-r-y weekend. And if you live in these parts, you will come to know that there are hundreds of professional yard salers and hagglers out there. I am by no means a professional yard saler, but I do frequent them from time to time, and I usually always find a treasure...even if it is another man's junk.
What a rush it is to find something for a bargain! Today at my mom's neighborhood yard sale, I got these mini preserved juniper topiaries (see photo below) off my galfriend who purchased them from Restoration Hardware. And guess what I paid for them?? $15? Nope. $10? Nope. $1? Nope. Give up? I paid nothing. zip. zero. nada.
I worked a trade deal with her. I traded her a chair for the topiaries. It was a chair I didn't want or need anymore. Of course, I didn't need the topiaries either, but they sure look nice with my decor! I believe I got the better end of the bargain ~ shhhhh!
