Another Saturday morning has come and gone....sigh. I can't wait until next week.
This week wasn't huge, but it was super fun. Three hours in the car by myself with whatever playlist I want...it was like a vacation.
A few highlights from the morning:
First, free stuff...usually free stuff is not this good!
The dollhouse was broken, so the house with two cars, people, and tons of furniture was all free. Usually, when I buy a dollhouse, I either donate the house to Goodwill or sell it at a kid consignment sale anyway so I don't have to ship it. I sell the people, then I sell the furniture, possibly saving out some special pieces to sell by themselves. Easy to ship and money to be made!
My favorite yard sale of the morning was of a college girl selling many of her childhood things. I bought these vintage puzzles from her:
The girls will love putting these together, and I like the ebay possibilities. I paid three for $1. At the same sale, I bought vintage Disney Storybooks with tapes. My girls LOVE these and yes, we still have a tape player in our car. They were 25 cents each. When we get tired of hearing them over and over and over again, I'll put them up on ebay.
I also bought my usual supply of books, paying no more than 25 cents each. The girls will read through them, and then off to the auction block they will go once I get a good lot of them ready.
A few special items did not make it into the picture because they were wisked away for play as soon as I got home. They deserve a special post of their own later on this week!
You may have noticed the big bag of clothes. A messy table full of fun colored clothing caught my eye at one particular yard sale, so I decided to stop. I got excited when I saw that all of the clothes were only 25 cents per item! Can you say Gymboree, Ralph Lauren, Old Navy, Carters, and Gap for dirt cheap??!!
I picked up 28 pieces for $7 total. This included a coat, two puffy vests, several Gymboree knit dresses, nice pj's, two matching hoodie/pants outfits, a super nice white polo sweater, and more. I especially love this hat:
Charlotte loves hats! She even loves to eat them.
That's about it. Of course I bought movies, more books, another pirate ship and these cute Sesame Street puppets. I just couldn't help myself.
What did you find this week? Anything you're excited about?
