    I bought a carpet shampooer for $3.00.  It think it was a Kenmore but can't really remember.  It lasted me a few years before it broke.  I used it to do the kitchen floor and was a lot better than mopping

    I know I used to buy video games at yard sales and then re-sell them on eBay.  Made good money that way while I was unemployed.

    A 20 year old copy of the magazine, The Writer, for 5 cents. It changed my whole perspective. The second best thing was a famous clown doll for $1.50. My kids had a love/Hate thing for it; it blew this foul "breath", in your face.

      Wow clown sounds creepy but I think all clowns are,especially since I watched" it" by Stephen king.
      But I love looking through prices in old papers and magazines

    I picked up a heap of about two dozen '70s rock CDs - Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Grand Funk Railroad, etc. - for a buck apiece at a yard sale last year. That was a pretty sweet haul and it filled in numerous "holes" in my collection .

    I bought a beautiful cabinet with beveled glass front doors that we touched up and placed in our kitchen.  It was only $20 and people ooh and ahh over it all the time wanting to know where it came from.  They are always shocked when I say a yard sale for 20 bucks lol.

    It was a sunflower plate and cost about $2. I use it for a decorative piece, since it was small. This was two decades ago in New York.

    I am a book nerd, so really old, undiscovered books are my favorite things to find in garage sales. Especially if they cost nickles and dimes. The information there can be such gold.

    I also bought my saxophone at a yard sale some time back for about $50. It has character, sure, but I love it to death. It also retails for $315 USED, so I can't complain!
