German Village is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Columbus, I could spend all day just walking up and down the streets, looking at the perfect brick houses and the beautiful landscape. I spent this past Saturday morning doing just that and then some! This Saturday was Village Valuables, essentially a huge neighborhood yard sale. Almost all the houses in German Village participated, which made for a great day of bargain hunting. After I finally found a parking spot, I threw my hair up in a bun, slung my purse over my shoulder and grabbed my reusable shopping bag- soon to be very full. I was ready. Yard sales can some times seem overwhelming, but go into it in the mind set that you will be digging and that it is ok to leave without anything. Make sure you have cash as well. What is great about yard sales is the stuff that is out, the owners are most likely just trying to get rid of, so the prices are low and they probably will be willing to bargain. The beginning of my morning I found a Zara jacket, H&M shirt, repurposed necklace, Alice and Olivia dress, and a beautiful silk scarf all for under $10.
As I started making my way back to the car, I decided to explore one more street of sales. And boy am I glad I did. Right as I was walking up to this house the owner was dumping out a huge bag of men’s shoes onto her lawn. I hurried over and grabbed as many size 11s as I could hold and began texting my boyfriend to see which ones he wanted. I grabbed these brand new never worn bronze Gucci loafers as well as a pair of lightly worn Alejandro Ingelmo tux shoes, both were only $15 a pair! What a deal, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I couldn’t stop looking at them they were beautiful and shinny and only $15. I’d like to say my morning at village valuables was well spent. And my boyfriend is pretty happy as well. 🙂
