We're approximately a week out from Black Friday Sales and it looks like there are going to be some good deals for everyone.  But have you noticed there also seems to be some really good deals in the stores right now?

We finally decided to sell my Samsung Captivate (I renewed my contract and got a new Samsung II...III would have been nice but it was more than $9.99) :-) and purchase a new camera for the business.  After surfing and reading several reviews, we found another Panasonic  Lumix (remember our other one quit working right).  Our local Kmart had it in stock so we went to check it out to see if it was the camera for us.  (In other words since I'm not the photographer in the family would it truly be a point and shoot?) LOL!  Our full intention was to purchase it online because it was $20 cheaper but after arriving we changed our minds.

Instead Kmart had a Sony Cyber-shot on clearance (only 1 left) which was priced within a few dollars of the Panasonic Lumix online so we thought we'd take a look at it too.  Wow! We liked it better than the Lumix.  After researching it online (yes we were still in the store) we found great reviews and discovered Kmart was offering it for $50 less than what it was online. Needless to say, we purchased it!  Not only was the camera a bargain but we earned some really great coupons with our Kmart rewards card. Cash off of shoes, household products and .20 off per gallon of gas at our local Speedway.  Plus we used our cash back credit card so it was definitely a win-win situation for us!

I've been using the camera all morning and I think it's going to work out great!  Ebay is now encouraging everyone to use the 12 free pictures they provide.  I was reading an article that said anything Ebay 'suggests' usually translates into "if you do it, it will help your products search ranking". As far as I'm concerned my goal is to increase pictures of the items I have for sale. Although I ask myself this question: How many angles can you take of a book? I guess it will be 12! LOL!

Have a super charged weekend! Our God is the Lord of all.  No matter what happens in our homes, our towns or our country, He is still in control.  Never lose sight of that!

As I said last week you can always count on the regular items selling weekly so to prevent you from becoming bored, here are a few of the different items we sold. :-)


6 Beautiful Large Soft Burlap? Striped Orange Brown Tan Fall Autumn Napkins
(These were in a box lot of linens.  That's the fun of box lots. You never know what may be in there that someone else will enjoy.  Why did I purchase this lot? Because I love vintage linens! LOL!)

Kitchen Westinghouse Meat Loaf Bread Refrigerator Dish Glass with Lid
$5 each (sold 2)
(Vintage refrigerator items sell quite often.  Most will not bring a big price but they are a guarantee may be a slow nickle but it's worth it in the end.)

14 Baby Sitters Club Series Mystery,Super Special, 3 Little Sister Ann M Martin
(Never pay more than .25 for a series paperback unless you know it's worth it.  Each of these were either free or less than a quarter.)

We also sold a collector plate this week and I thought you might enjoy what the buyer shared with us:

"Good morning! I realize you were expecting more money from the sale of this plate, but I want to tell you what good your plate will do.I'll be giving it as a door prize at our next neighborhood organization meeting. The artist lived in the next block from me. I have collect much of his work to put in a neighborhood museum I'm starting in my church a few blocks away. Thank you."

What better response to receive than to know we have been blessed to play a part in the 'homecoming' of this plate?  Although the buyer thought we should have received more for the plate, he has no idea how much we truly received!  I love it when we hear stories like this. 

So how has Sayre's Stash financially done this year?  So far we've paid all the bills associated with the store, purchased "new" inventory and items we've wanted for personal use and at this time have a store emergency fund that would keep the store running even if nothing else was sold for almost a year.  I'm pretty happy with that! How blessed we are!

Enjoy the peace & quiet now that the election is finally over!  Praise God for His blessings and pray for our leaders.  Their job is a tough one and whether or not our guy got into the White House is of no importance.  We are each responsible for our own actions.  It's time to quit blaming others and grow up!

In the past week we've sold much of the same items I've been sharing with you. Pie Plates, books, mugs, Longaberger hang tags, etc.  The only thing different in nature was a child's quilt ($23.75) and a necklace ($1.99) so instead of repeating myself I thought I'd share some other info with you.

We went to the Goodwill Outlet yesterday with Misty! We picked up books, mugs, tupperware and a few things we could use here at the house.  It was actually a small amount of items compared to other store 'shopping' trips.  I think I know why.

Over the past several months we have stocked a lot for the upcoming winter season and honestly I'm tired of doing inventory,  pictures, listing and shipping.  Now don't get me wrong I love what we're doing here and we've even had a vacation but I'm still feeling overwhelmed.  My solution?  I think I need to set a schedule for the store and then walk away from it.  The problem is I enjoy doing the work so much that I lose track of time and don't get to do the things I'd like to do such as sewing, crafts, etc.

I finished the curtains for the office (which I love) and still need to make the ones for the mud room.  I've cut out strips to make another runner for the kitchen table not to mention I'd love to start making some throw pillows.  There is also a stack of mending that needs to be done.  I never thought I'd say I need to set boundaries for working at home but I guess we've grown to the point that I'm going to have to do it or it won't be any better than working for someone else.  I'll be a slave to working for myself.  Isn't that a kicker? Creating your own bondage.

We often do that you know....creating our own bondage.  You can or can't do that or what will others think or you don't deserve to do that because you haven't finished this and the list goes on.  Jesus said He came so we could have life more abundant....He broke the chains of slavery and we try to put them back on.  Some may say this means the slavery to sin and I'll concede that can be applied too but what about the restraints we put on ourselves that really aren't sinful?  I'm talking about making up our own rules....'You can have dessert after you finish your dinner" " No play until you finish your work" "Cookies for breakfast?" "Don't ever wear stripes with plaids"

Ok so some of these may be for our own good but let's get real...the world won't come to an end if we don't follow the rules someone else made up.  I'm not talking about laws that have been put in place for our protection or things that definitely are Biblically defined as sins but instances that really affect no one but ourselves.  I kind of like cookies for breakfast, don't you? :-)

What is keeping you from accomplishing some of your goals?  Is it possible that it's you? I know I'm guilty. Give it some thought....
