I love and I mean absolutely love yard sales. It's not just the fact that it's practically the only way I can get affordable nice things for our home. It's also the thrill of the hunt, the possible great finds that you can get, the challenge of haggling with someone over the price. It's my own form of entertainment.
This week was the best yard sales ever. A town nearby was having a community wide yard sale weekend. I went with the kids and this is what I found.
Two.. Count them TWO! Hand wheat grinders that actually work! I have been looking for these for years but could never afford them. Purchase price? $1.00 for both. I am not joking, the husband collected wheat grinders for some reason and the wife just wanted to get rid of them. These are heavy duty cast iron with stainless steel hoppers and the adjustable stones for grinding different types and coarseness of grains. I looked them up on the Internet and they are antiques that sell for 60-80 dollars each! I'm not selling though :)
