From my Crafty Blogroll section, there's a post: Top Five Things To Buy At Yard Sales This Year from The Itsy Bits and Pieces Blog. The post is part of a Blog Hop in which 14 different Yard Salers recommend things to look for this year.

I need to seriously work on my refurbishing skills. A bargain isn't a bargain if you never make it useable, right?
