First yard sale, nice neighborhood, nice house, nice cars, nice looking people, JUNK.
Second yard sale, older neighborhood, I see brightly colored plastic and it looks good. I immediately see a pile of toy story toys I want to buy, all for 25 cents each! Score! Wait...oh, sorry, you just bought these? I apologize *frown*. Mental note: no more sleeping in till 6:38am. Let's see...is there anything else I might like? You betcha!
There was a complete American Girl camping set, with tent, camping chairs, fire with working lighted lantern, marshmellow and hot dog sticks, hiking backpack with binoculars and other accessories, sleeping bag, guitar and hat.
OOOHHH...and there's a neat school desk for 2 dolls, plus a laptop, a locker and little accessories. Some of this I will sell and some I will save for my girls for Christmas. And what is that over there? Barbie Kitchen Littles!!??? Woo Hoo!
These little kitchen items (made by Tyco in the 90's) are some of the neatest little things EVER. Made to be Barbie sized, the quality is beyond excellent and they look so realistic. They are so detailed, and this little girl took EXCELLENT care of them (I was told she's in college now). I honestly can't even tell they have been played with. You can check out the closed auctions of all the Barbie Kitchen Little stuff here.
Look at the food for the fridge! It's so cute that it makes ME want to play with it.
So do you think $19 would cover all of this? Not even close.
For the first time ever in Yard Sale Mommy history, I had to put yard sale items on layaway. I handed over my $19 in exchange for her holding my items until I came back with the rest of the money. She happily accepted and off to the bank I went.
When I came back, I paid her the rest of what she said I owed and $56 dollars later I was in my car. But $56 didn't seem right to me...sure I bought a lot of stuff but the number wasn't right. I pulled the car over, tallied up my items, and stopped back by to pick up the $8 she owed me.
Here I picked up two movies, $2 each, and the Narnia one is sealed brand new. It will make a great gift. And I also found an umbrella for Charlotte. It will look so cute in photos. If only it would rain! Man, it is hot here in Carolina!
And of course, more crafts and a lot of 25 cent Christmas Golden books.
I also got a three drawer storage bin that I had been thinking about buying in the store for Charlotte's room to store the clothes she hasn't grown into yet. It was only $1! And for $10, I picked up a brand new set of 4 child's golf clubs. Finally, I bought a pair of shin guards for $1 that we needed so the girls don't have to share.
That was my morning! Grateful to God for all the things I found to keep or sell! What did you find? Link up so we can see!!
Here are the link up rules:
1. Your link must bring people directly to a blogpost about your yard sale finds, not to your blog "in general".
2. Your link (or should I say yard sale finds) must be family friendly and appropriate!!
3. You must include a link back to www.yardsalemommy.com somewhere on the blogpost you are linking up. A simple "I'm linking up with Yard Sale Mommy" with a live link would be great so we can grow this linky party!
