I headed to my dad’s winter home in Sun City, Arizona on October 15, 2012 with a back pack, purse and suitcase. When I returned on November 8th I had 2 suitcases, a backpack and a carry-on. One of the biggest reasons was that my dad purchased a Kitchen Aide mixer at a garage sale, in Alaska, packed it in a suitcase and gave it to me in Arizona.
Sun City is the best place I have ever been for garage sales and thrift stores. They have one shopping center that has 4 thrift stores (107th and Peoria) with 2 additional across the street. This is the 2nd reason I came home with more suitcases.
Pampered Chef’s mandolin (never used) $5.00, $66 new, Stick Blender $1.00, lot of bible studies $1.50, two books $.50, 60’s patterns $.25 for 2, 3 small pans for soap $.25, box of envelopes $5.00, two beautiful lace covers $.25 each.
So how do you think I did???
