Beauty Products at Yardsale prices

Visiting in the mountains with my family is always fun and this weekend was no exception.  We ate, we walked (one day), we shopped, we sat on the porch and enjoyed the cool weather,  and we ate some more. We do a LOT of eating when we get together.  You should see all the vegetables we brought home!

I’ll be sharing all of that later next week, but in the meantime, we’ll have another fun Monday of sharing yardsale finds. I didn’t go yardsaling this weekend, since we were out of town, but I have something to share that I’ve saved up.

A big congrats to Jenny, who is the winner of the Ritz Crackerful $100 giftcard giveaway. And thanks to ALL of you for participating in the giveaway. It was a fun and successful event and I appreciate all of you stopping by for that. Hopefully, there will be more of these in the future.

Go here for a chance to win a personalized engraved tile from my friend, Kaye at Engraved Euniques!

And for the chance to win a custom border rug, go over to Our Creative Life. I was blessed to win the monogram custom rug in my foyer from her last year and love it!


Beauty products at yardsales?

Did you know you can find cologne and perfume at yardsales, along with brand new lipstick, like Clinique and Estee Lauder? Yep, it’s true. I found all 3 of these just this spring at the sales. I never have to go and buy new cologne for myself now. The one on the left is Ralph Lauren Romance, for $4. Estee Lauder Pleasures Intense was $5 and Ralph Lauren Safari was $3.  So, I’ll be smelling pretty for a long time to come. 🙂

I also find many brand new tubes of Clinique or Estee Lauder lipstick in just-right colors for me for usually 50 cents to $2. Now, that’s a bargain, if you price those at the department stores. It’s a no brainer for me. These are lipsticks that come in the freebie packs and someone decides they don’t like the color and to the yardsale it goes, brand new never used.

And right home with me.

How about YOU?  Did you get out and about this weekend and find any treasures.  You know the drill!

So, get ready to share your treasures too.  Remember our guidelines for Mr. Linky parties:

  1. Enter your permalink to your thrifty post and NOT just your blog url.  If you aren’t sure how to do that, please refer back to last week’s party. All links that do not go to your party post will be deleted.
  2. Please add a link back to THIS post, so that all your readers can find the party and join in or at least read about all the fun that everyone else had, or I’ll have to delete those too.
  3. If you come back & your link is deleted, it’s because your link was incorrect (and I couldn’t identify it) OR you didn’t link back to this party. Please try again!

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! I found perfume one at a yard sale. Clinique Happy for 5 bucks. Haven’t found any since though!

  2. This is my first time participating. Thanks for hosting this great party every week, Rhoda!

  3. What a deal on the perfumes Rhoda!
    I can hardly belive it. Some of my favorites too. I got married wearing Ralph Lauren Romance. It always reminds me of my special day. ~Blessings to you, ~Melissa 🙂

  4. Hi Rhoda!

    When I posted one of my frugal finds about a month ago, you wanted me to let you know when I finished it. Well, I have finally finished the wooden chair I bought on Craig’s List. Here’s the link to the redo:

    Thanks for the Monday parties- I love them!


  5. I have never thought about perfume at Yard Sales, but what a terrific way to get perfume. It’s so expensive in retail stores. Great job! I think I’ll look for some now. Thanks for sharing and hostessing this fun event.

  6. Wow, that was wonderful for these perfumes are very expensive in the store! I love Pleasures! I love to find some Poem’ for it is my favorite! Now you saved a lot of money! For more garage sales!
