It was a busy Saturday morning before leaving for the beach. I had strict orders to be home by 8:30 so that we could hit the road by 9am (ha ha!). I was a little bit late, but only because it was a fun morning where each yard sale had a little surprise for me when I showed up. Here are the highlights:
For $10, I bought this awesome group of Barbie things:
The Barbie Breakdown:
Midge and her Family (I have the Dad, little brother, and baby too, with all of the nursery accessories!
Barbie Happy Family Talking House
Barbie Happy Family Doctor Set
I'm actually sick about this now--I passed up two other Happy Family Sets at the same yard sale because she wanted to sell them for $5 and I was being cheap--little did I know I was passing up a $100 extra profit. I had NO IDEA the Barbie Happy Family line was so HUGELY popular. I will definitely be buying this in the future. When I purchased this Barbie Stuff today, I knew it was just a good deal and the little girl had kept all of the little pieces. I did not look it up, if I had I would have bought every last bit of it. I learn something new every Saturday morning! If you are curious, check out what all the Happy Family Barbie stuff looks like here.
I guess I was still on a dino high because I bought the Spike Jr. and friend for a total of $3. They both make noise and there are lights, etc. He doesn't sell like his huge counterpart, at least not so much right now, so I may hang on to him until Christmas.
I also bought a bunch of Littlest Pet Shop Stuff, because it sells well (you have to buy cheap, though!) and my oldest LOVES it. In fact, she ran off with a bag of animals so it isn't pictured! I paid $5 for everything here (and elsewhere).
I also bought a fisher price baby toy (I usually don't buy these but it was cheap and I thought maybe Charlotte would like it). I will resell it when I am done, will probably make $15, but probably wouldn't have bought it if we were not able to enjoy it first. Of course, she had no interest...she wanted the Littlest Pet Shop animals (and to suck on their magnets, ugh...). Also note the Weebles Treehouse. Please make this mental note: Weebles are great. Buy them. They sell OK right now, but at Christmastime? Through the roof!!
Among other things (that I am likely to share with you later on this week), I bought a Sleeping Beauty Dress ($1), a Lord of the Rings Risk Game ($1--did you know RISK games are great sellers? I just learned this recently!), some little tupperware things for the lunchboxes, a puzzle and craft for the beach, a neat Easter book, and some ZOOBLES (my girls love them and I got a handfull for ten cents a piece). I'll share more later on in the week.
Now I want to know what YOU found. Come on, I can take it. Unless you live in Raleigh and you bought those two other Happy Family sets that I passed up. I don't think I can take that.
