Plan Your Weekend Garage Sale Route Now

Did you know there’s treasure buried in the Permian Basin? No not oil, and not a huge treasure chest filled with diamonds, but something that might be just as valuable in your eyes. Let Thrifty Nickel’s garage sale section help you find that glorious treasure you’ve been searching for. Maybe you’re into collecting slot machines, classic baseball cards, or antique 45 caliber handguns? Well you aren’t going to find any of these things at your local big box retail store but you might uncover treasure in your own neighborhood.

Garage Sales are a way for Mom to get rid of all little Billy’s toys he left home when he moved for college, not knowing that some of them might be quite valuable. Sometimes garage sales are just filled with people trying to sell their grass clippings and art that their dog Sparky painted with his tail. But there are other times when you sift through all the seemingly useless crap and discover a real diamond in the rough. While my definition of treasure might differ from yours, both of our treasures are out there at some distant garage sale just waiting to be picked up.

So for all you Permian Basin dwellers, here are some of this weekend’s garage sales courtesy of your Thrifty Nickel.

- LARGE INSIDE Sale. 4100 Golder. #16. Furniture, TV’s, plus size ladies clothes, 1/2 price Mary Kay makeup, doggie door, lots of miscellaneous. Saturday only 8am.

- KING BED, Queen & twin mattresses, couches, chairs, washer, dryer, mower, lot of miscellaneous. 432-238-0375 after 6:00.

- 3 FAMILY Sale. 170 W. 87th St., Thurs- Fri., 7:30am-3pm. Clothing. Lots Miscellaneous.

- 4211 WINCHESTER Dining table with 5 chairs, queen bedroom suite, full bed, dresser, chest of drawers, sofas, maple China hutch, and lots of miscellaneous. Thursday and Friday 9am- 1pm, Saturday 9am. Sale by Deanna & Sharon.

If you’re thinking of having a sale of your own then call Dixie for all your garage sale needs (432) 333-4148.

Dogs Are A Man’s Best Friend, But Women Love Them Too!

Hello loyal and beautiful Thrifty Nickel readers, and happy Monday! First of all, I’d like to congratulate Permian on their big win Friday night against Odessa, both teams fought hard to the end and deserve our recognition. Even though I predicated the score of the game wrong, I was correct in saying Jorrion Wilson would run for two touchdowns and help Permian win the game.

Have you ever thought that it’s impossible to please everyone sometimes? Well I know the feeling and have been thinking a lot about it recently. Maybe you and your spouse argue about things from time to time and you’re trying to figure out a resolution that will make both of you happy. So after much meditation and thinking, I may have discovered the secret to a happy relationship.

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and dogs are man’s best friend, then it’s time to get your wife a dog if you don’t already have one! Maybe the diamond-studded collar for Champ will have to wait awhile, but Thrifty Nickel does have lots of amazing pets that need a good home. Take a look at some dogs advertised in this week’s paper:

-       1 BLACK male Poodle, ready for adoption on15th. $250. 432-664-5488.

-       2 MALE Shih tzu puppies $200. 1 Apricot female poodle $275. Cash Only. 432-367-8637, 432-553-1322

-       OLDE ENGLISH Bulldog puppy, female, 9 weeks old, registered. c325-721-1613, w325-691-1110 ask for Kevin

-       ALASKAN MALAMUTE puppies ready to go with shots. 6 wks old. Four male and 3 female. $350. Call 806-535 4394.
