I went to a few yardsales Saturday. I was so excited to get a NEW roasting pot with glass cover (also can use this as serving dish) and a set of three cast iron cookware (pot, frying pan and griddle with "ripples" for bacon so the grease drips down. They are SO heavy.

The lady says how about $2?
I almost died. I said well, ok. ;0) I love a good deal! Oh I also got a case of HUGE glass beer glasses from Germany, new, for $5. I am using them for lemonade this Summer :0) LOL

I used to go to all the garage sales and pick up the good deals, then sell them on Ebay for a extra income. You can make some real good extra money that way. If you live in a country area buy those types of things and sell them to the city folks!! You would be supprised how much you can make doing it and having fun at the same time too! Mark H.

Yes you got a good deal on the cast iron, you'll have to let us all know what you cook up in your new pots, O.K.? good cooking to you, Debora in Louisiana.

I love selling on eBay :0) I have been selling for four years...mostly for fun but after my husband left it is all I have for income...piddly but at least we can eat.

My username there is new_singlemommy_of5 but I only mostly selling clothing as that is what I know.

I used to pick up Axe Heads to sell they bring 15.00 to 75.00-(with writing on them) they do not need the handles on them. Old tools do good along with little pullys, cast iron grates, old flue covers bring in good money too. Little old wooden boxes with writing(crate type) some old books anything that has to do with trains- old tickets, post cards, decks of cards, time schelduals, sovineers those types of things. The list is endless. My Ebay name is "lnghrn" I have been doing it for over 2 years now I sell tractor parts and my daughter sells the other stuff from the garage sales and buys the feed for her cows and books she wants on them. Good Luck, Mark H.
