Crafty Yard Sale Shopping
Are you a crafty person who can figure out how to use someone else's cast offs to make something good for themselves or others? If you are than you know the high price of some crafts, have you ever considered yard sales as a place to pick up your craft materials? A yard sale is one of the best places to continue adding to your collection of useable items. Most often the craft supplies that you find at yard sales can be 75 percent less than those you buy at the craft stores that is a huge savings that can be used elsewhere in your budget.
Depending on where you live you may be able to find some great deals such as beading supplies for as little as a quarter or how about quilting supplies for a dollar or less. There is such an amazing quantity of crafting supplies that can be had for next to nothing. If someone is cleaning out their supplies or have decided they no longer want to do a certain craft, this is where you score! I was once able to snatch up three bags of jewelry beads, wire, charms, pendants, clasps and leftover polymer clay for $5 dollars! You can also find crafting machines at yard sales and end up paying far less than you would at a retail outlet.
Jewelry making supplies are one of the easiest to find at yard sales, and sometimes you can get them for free, you are not the only one that has lost just one earring out of a set! Many times you can get one earring for next to nothing and sometimes just out right free. Costume jewelry is a great buy and the individual parts can be re-used to create new and interesting jewelry pieces.
There are always items at yard sales that can be used in crafting. Whether it is needle working supplies or old flannel shirts that can be used in your next quilt, there is always something to be found at a yard sale. If you confine most of your crafting supply searching to yard sales you should be able to save at least 50 percent on supplies and in some cases even more. With a creative eye you can find amazing deals at yard sales and always walk away with a smile on your face and a new idea for a craft, Happy Hunting!
