Pump Me

This may not look like much but it is!!!!! This is will probably be the best garage sale find for us of all times. It's a jacuzzi brand pool pump. Its the best pump you can get for your pool. We normally use a 1.5 horse power pump, this one is only a 1 horse power but it will still do the trick, we will just have to run the pump longer. A new pump usually cost $430, a used pump is about $220 and this one was $10.
And to think that I didn't like going to garage sales at one time. That pump will be a life saver. The damned things always go out at the worst time and cost so much. Now we have a spare! I almost feel rich.
What was your best garage sale find?
Off to stare at my pump,

Very nice! I haven't done any garage sales thus year yet but I plan to.

I miss garage saleing(sp?). Ever since I moved into a much smaller space, I've resisted the urge to stop and browse - my willpower isn't that strong. :/ Sweet find btw!

I, too, NEVER went to garage sales. (Well, technically, I still don't...) but I went with Magnum on a work trip once, and as part of our "cover" we went garage sale-ing. I found a beautiful Graco highchair for my niece (it was even pink!) for $5! I looked it up online when I got home, and it was about $150! Sure, I spend over an hour scrubbing it with hot, soapy, bleachy water, but still. What a score!

And just to sink to a new lpw of vulgarity, can I ask if Den will be "handy" with that pump? ;-)

Funny thing about me: I will have a garage sale to get rid of my junk however I don't shop at yard sales because I don't need anymore junk. Though your find is great only because you need it hence not junk.

Great find. I found a new Coach purse on the weekend for $10. I think I am going to resell it though as it is not really me.

Great find! I haven't been to a garage sale in years.

Sonya Ann said...

ND Chic-I need to poke around at a few more. But it has been so cold and crappy here. One more thing for the list.

Sonya Ann said...

D.Lynn-It's probably best your way. I will eventually have to clean out the house because of all of the stuff we have drug in.

Sonya Ann said...

ChiTown-Great find but sometimes it seems as if you are just buying work.

Sonya Ann said...

sluggy-There is no bottom to how low we can sink! Bring it!
Oh and I will ask Den on your behalf.

Sonya Ann said...

Mamma-I have been talking about having a garage sale. We need to clean out the garage first. Maybe that will be motivation for Den. A trip to Vegas might motivate me.

Sonya Ann said...

Cheapchick-Great find! Let me know how much you make off of it. Or is that being too nosy?

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-I wish that I had gotten into it when the kids were smaller. Think of all the money I could have saved. But I would have had to drag the kids with me. Never mind.
