The weather has NOT been cooperative this Spring, so I have only had the opportunity to go to a few garage sales so far. Today I heard of a neighborhood garage sale (30+ homes) in a nice neighborhood. I loaded up the kids and headed out even though the sky looked very promising for rain. I only stopped at a couple of sales and unfortunately didn't find ANY clothes for the kids. This is always my goal - good clothes for NEXT season. Zippo, zilch today. I did however spend approximately $10 on stuff we absolutely did not need.
In this picture - from left to right:
1. A cool wire meshy basket thingy. I think I"m going to decorate it with ribbon or a tag or something and maybe it will hold the day's mail? Other ideas being accepted. 50 cents. (i wish they had more of these - i love it)
2. A Fisher Price Makeup compact thingy. You open it up to find a mirror attached to the lid. It has an applicator for eye shadows that aren't real, a comb (already missing - probably in the van) and a perfume bottle. It was a buck - and Lauren loves it.
3. A Fisher Price tackle box. Finally a place to house Lauren's play tools! Maybe even her doctor "kick" - one dollar.
4. Hey! It's Franklin! He talks. - $2
And finally - something I absolutely could NOT resist....a vintage Little People airport garage! I LOVED this toy when I was little! This came with several cars, a few wooden Little People - painted (probably lead paint)...the gas pump, the tow truck, the lift for the cars so you can fix them. LOVE IT! It needs a lot of cleaning - a lot...but for five bucks? worth it to me anyway. I looked up how much they were going for on ebay....not much. =-( Oh well - guess I'll just HAVE to play with it.
