Garage Sale Treasures

I'm going to start a new series this spring showcases that great things I find at garage sales! I'll try to keep this a running Thursday post, but sometimes it may be Friday because usually big city-wide garage sales start on Friday! Here's what I found today:
A huge bag of army guys for Blue-Raspberry Taffy-$1.00

An outside riding toy for Laffy Taffy- $2.00
A big bag of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends toys for Bubble Gum Taffy- $.75

A rustic star decoration for ME!! Love this(and the model)! - $.50
A brand new Willow Tree Ornament ( I can use this as a gift!) -$1.00
A dirty, but otherwise in great condition, picnic basket- $1.00
This is by far the best thing I found today. It's an authentic Longaberger! Oh how I have dreamed of finding a Longaberger at a garage sale. Another cool thing about this basket was that it was filled to the top with embroidery floss, which I promptly gave to Strawberry Taffy and she was thrilled! -$5.00
I also found some children's books(6 @ $.25 each) and clothes, but I put the clothes in the wash before I remembered to take a picture of them. I found some outfits for my friend's baby...a dress, a summer Gymboree outfit and some undershirts for Bubble Gum, and some jammies for Laffy Taffy. ( I think the total cost I paid for the clothes was under $10.00) A great time was had by all!
