"Mama, I just saw a road sign for a 'Rummage Sale'. Is that the same thing as a garage sale?"

 

That's how we found ourselves pulling over at the Presbyterian church on Route 87 in Middlefield, Ohio. The sign read: "All proceeds go to..."  My son, who never leaves the house without his fanny pack full of hard worked cash (in case opportunity arises and he needs the dollars) asked me to slam on the breaks.

 

"I feel like there's a good deal there!" he yelled. Please remind me to stop recording Storage Wars and Auction Hunters. He is all about a good deal.

 

We stopped.

 

The kiddo was right.

 

He hit gold when he found a foot-bath-massage-thingy that was priced at three dollars.

footbath

 

He will sell it to you for thirty dollars. To pay for new jeggings for his sister, yo!

I'm with Kasia! He could make some serious cash renting it out for pre manicure dipping!

Ahhhh! So glad she likes that shirt (and I'm glad to see it hasn't fallen apart yet!).

Jay reminds me of my friends brother, who, as a 20-something, read an article about the fastest-growing businesses at the time. In the top 3 was a day spa. Fast forward 16 years and the spa he opened with his wife has quadrupled in size and draws people from all over the region. :)

I just love how enterprising he is! I've told you before our boys are similar. Ben is currently coming up with comic strips and trying to sell them for $.25 a piece at school. Not sure that's actually allowed but.... ;)

Adorable!
