Kinda Creepy

This weekend we went out as a family for our 3rd annual cut our own Christmas tree outing. This is one of those things I want to make a family tradition for as long as possible. I think traditions are important. I don't have too many with my family but the ones I have are very special.

When we got home J got out some boxes marked Christmas. We have his and hers decorations and very few ours so we weren't sure what we would find. One of the storage boxes contained some decorations I picked up early this year at a yard sale. The yard sale was held in the back yard of this home and the yard was filled with tons and tons of treasures. I bought a mountain of stuff (literally a mountain) and only paid about $30 for all of it. Have already sold about $200 worth throughout the year of things I purchased that day. The Christmas items I purchased got put away and forgotten. As I pulled out the items out of one of the boxes J exclaimed "that's kinda creepy". I have to admit it was but in quaint old fashion Christmas kind of way.

As I have been known to do with everything that comes in this house I looked up the item before deciding to use or sell. These creepy cute decorations have sold for $60. Off to the for sell pile they went. 

I have two old fashion carolers listed separately for $40 and I already have a bid on one. One persons creepy is another's christmas decoration. 

An update on my great find. The stress control thingy sold for $275 plus shipping. My second highest sale to date on eBay. I wish I could turn $2 into $275 every week.
