I purchased the same suitcase from my neighbors garage sale....it had traveled with her to Holland back in the 60's. I refurbsished the inside it is now a place for my granddaughters toys.

How funny was that lol I am thinking with all the yard sale storys I hear there could be a book in the making.

That's hilarious!!


So funny! I just love the back and forth commentary!


I love it.
Hell, yeah - find someplace else to put the books for Pete's sake, yard sale lady!
I got such a kick out of this - and even more so because I just recently got a vintage aqua suitcase for $5, also! I will definitely be doing a post about it - I don't even have it yet to take a photo (long story)!

Carrie @ Junque Magnet

Very amusing.Very, very, very amusing. People are funny.

Jackie @ Let's Go Thrifting!

What a funny exchange! Good for you, being persistent. That suitcase was totally worth the debate...and the $5!

You should have offered a dollar for the milk crate, just for fun...


OMG! I'm cracking up. Money talks. Or in this case... money moves! I would have been laughing right in front of her had I been that fellow shopper standing next to you. In the end you won. And YOU don't even have to worry about where to put all the books! Score!


Ha.. thats funny.. Always amusing what you find at yard sales that are 'non' valued. And yet the tupperware bowl you have at home they want 10.00 for.
