This week was a bit of a disappointment. We were only out there an hour before we quit. I think I might have to try a new suburb. The prices I saw today were so ridiculous it isn’t even worth talking about! I did manage to find a few little goodies though.
None of this was essential, just fun and cheap. The calendar white board is brand new and was $1.00. I think I will put it in our school room. The Discovery Toys Place and Trace was a quarter, all the pieces are there too! Wrist rattles-.25 Tag Ball-.75 Scripture Book Ends-$1.00
2 Americana Throw Pillows $1.00 each.
This was my major purchase of the day. I found this little beauty at the junkiest garage sale you’ve ever seen. They had $25.00 on it, but when the guy saw me looking at it, he said he would give it to me for $20.00. It’s brand new! I don’t think in the all years I’ve been a mom that I’ve had a stroller this nice. It’s really a blessing. An extra perk is that the handle is extra tall, so it’s even comfortable for my tall husband to push!
Since the garage sales weren’t very satisfying, Strawberry, Salt Water and I went to Goodwill. Thursday is Toddler Thursday, so all kid’s stuff is 50% off, except shoes for some strange reason.
This is a neat Melissa and Doug toy, I forget what it’s called, but you slide the little pictures to appropriate spot on the board. For example, M is for monkey, so the monkey slides to the M part. It’s double sided. $1.50
Well, this picture is a combo of my day. The dress came from a garage sale, it’s 3 pieces and was $2.00. Jeans are Gymboree from Goodwill for $1.50.
A pair of jeans for Blue-Raspberry-$2.50, a swim shirt for Bubble Gum (to grow into)-$2.00 and a wooden cigar box for my mom-$1.99. Was that a good price mom?
I also found a leather belt for Banana Taffy. I think I paid around $12.00 for everything. I was surprised at some of the high prices at Goodwill though. I had a pair of black Crocs in my cart and an adorable pair of dinosaur rubber boots, both for Laffy Taffy, but I didn’t buy them because they weren’t half price.
Hopefully your garage sale week was more fruitful than mine! Wanna link up? I would love to see what you got! If you’ve never linked up before, please read this post first.
