Okay, folks!

Here is the deal…

Beginning November 4th, 2013 we will be open to the public Monday through Saturday. That’s right! We will be here from 9a-6p M-F and 10a-5p on Saturday. So we invite you to come down and join us here for all the good deals and fun. This won’t work without you!

We will still have the sales and the colors, for sure. We will work all week long to bring goodies out to fill the floor so it could be totally different in here from day to day! Cool, right??

This is something we are very excited about and hope you are too! :D

Don’t forget! This begins November 4th! That is next week!

Rags to Riches: Part 1

So I am desperately getting my parts and pieces together to be ready for the big redesign.

So what is my color palate? What is my style? Where do I begin?


THIS is the style, the look, that I am after. Red, pink, black, white, silver, and gray. Now it won’t be exact by any means. But I am going to show you how to find treasures for little and create the feel you want. Spending little money the how it goes right now, and here at The Yard Sale Place we have so many wonderful items that need new homes.

My first step was to gain my vision. Done.

The next one is to pain my walls. Right now, they are white with a few places to touch up. I am going for a deep slate gray because I am afraid the black will shrink my room and make it appear smaller than it should. A nice gray will still allow for the white furniture to pop away from the wall.

As I am waiting to get my walls done, I will be refinishing furniture and wall hangings that will add to the soft and romantic, yet modern, atmosphere! Stay tuned!






















Coming Your Way!

good Capt Bargain

Beginning really soon, we will be doing a series of posts on Rags to Riches redecorating projects and tips that will change the way you look at many pieces again. It may inspire you to make some changes in your own home or just some fun anecdotes as Daisha completely guts her bedroom and creates her own oasis. Stay tuned for the very beginnings of Rags to Riches!


Come on in to find your own collection of treasures. We post on Craigslist and are open to the general public on Thursday evenings, Friday and Saturday. While most places are the same all time, we have a different look and different items every single week! Time to rescue a piece that speaks to you!

Summer Days…

Summer is coming up fast! Are you ready??

Is your backyard the oasis you have always wanted? Are the kids taken care of for those warm months we love so much?

If not, here are some great ideas that we can help you out with this week!

Come on down and pick up some great grills for that amazing outdoor cooking! This is the time of year that the hubby heads out with the hamburgers and cooks us dinner! It sure tastes amazing…

What about the kiddos? This week, we have a trampoline that is complete for $75.00! I’m not kidding. Whether your old one went bad on you or you have wanted something to occupy them for the summer, now is the time to do it. This is just the thing to get your kids outside and exercising!

Other great items we tend to get in for summer are things like outdoor tables and chairs, tents, sleeping bags, plates for outdoor eating, umbrellas, fishing poles, and tool boxes! Even if we don’t have them this week it doesn’t mean we won’t before the season is in full swing!

Remember, our stock changes weekly so it is very true when we say that we look different each week! Come down this weekend and check us out! Keep in mind, that Thursday evening shoppers get first dibs!

We Want You!

Thank you for visiting our brand new website! Now, come see us in our warehouse where we consign 20+ families from our area!

Every weekend is new because nothing stays on the shelves for longer than 3 weeks at a time. No, that is not us being over-confident…lol… We literally give each family 3 weekends to sell their goods.

  • Weekend #1: All new items are full price!
  • Weekend #2: All new items from weekend 1 are discounted by 30%!
  • Weekend #2: All new items from weekend 1 are discounted by 60%!!

Holy cow! Is that right?? Yep, that is right. Every weekend, we showcase new items and discount the ones that didn’t sell that first weekend. Once the three weeks are up, the owner can collect their goods or we happily donate them to charities in our area. It’s a win win!

So, now that you know the basics, you need to stop on by! Check out our store hours for Thursday, Friday and Saturdays when we are open to the public. OR if you see a great deal on Craigslist from us, feel free to drop by and view it in person!

In the event that you were not aware, we also have a Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn page!

We are asking for your support of small businesses everywhere by “liking” and “following” us today! Share these links with your friends and sign up to recieve new posts by email! Together we can do great things.

Our Mascots Have New Names!

Recently, we held a contest where we asked our customers to name our beloved mascots! Curious to know what names won?

Well, first let us fill you in on what we do on a daily basis…

The Yard Sale Place is THE best shopping spot in the Boise area! Just as our name suggests, we host a massive yard sale inside a warehouse every week with new families joining the ranks and bringing us their unwanted treasures to pass along.

Are we open everyday? Well, we are there every day (except Sunday) but not open to the public until Thursday evenings, and Fridays and Saturdays. We do post some items on Craigslist, but call before you come out to ensure someone is available to assist you. :)

Our theme is pirates, so come out ready to hunt for treasures that may take you quite by surprise!

And that brings us back to the big reveal…the names of our mascots!

One of them is a green parrot and the other is a large, burly pirate captain!

The names we chose from our entries are Penny the Parrot and Captain Barrgain!

Come on down for smiles, deals, and pictures as the good captain himself! There is fun for all, come visit soon!
