Garage Sale Treasures~Week 12

Garage Sale Treasure Button

Summer has hit with all of it’s warmth and pollen.  Summer isn’t really my favorite season, I know to most people summer is THE best, but I prefer the cooler temperatures of fall, the mosquito-less days and humid-less nights.   So it was HOT on the day we went garage saling and I didn’t have too much time to be out because I had lots of responsibilities to attend to in the kitchen/cooking department.  I’m happy with my finds though!


Both of the those Leap Frog Magnet sets were a dollar.  I already have them but since they were so cheap I bought them for my nephew.  My mom will probably keep that her house, she baby-sits him often.  The Lake Shore Learning Counting Cakes was $4.00.  There were so many awesome sets like this one that garage sale, I just didn’t want to pay that much!  They had a Lake Shore Learning Kitchen set, AMAZING, it was like $80 though.  Somebody will be happy.  The CARS sheet set was $2.00.  And the book $1.00.  All these things came from different sales.


2 Toy Story shirts-.25 (For Laffy Taffy for pajamas.)  The little sweat pants are for my nephew .25 and the Keens are for Marshmallow for next year~$1.00.


Some more tops for me.  Remember I’m rebuilding my wardrobe after dropping 45+ pounds!  From left to right:  .75, $1.00 & .25. (All size large)


Also for me from left to right:  Denim shorts~.50, denim capri overalls (LOVE)~$2.00, Plaid capris~.50, khaki shorts~.50. (size large or 12)


Two fall shirts for Chocolate Taffy.  $1.00 each.

I almost forgot to mention…I actually went thrift store shopping on Monday too.  Banana Taffy needed some stuff, we didn’t find anything for him, but I found some things for other people.  It was half-price day at both places I went, so if you see a tag, it was 1/2 of that.


Two pair of Khaki pants for Chocolate Taffy.  He got a job working at Target (discounts for Momma!), so he needed some pants.  $2.50 each and they are both GAP.


Shoes for me.  Suede leather boots~$1.49, flip flops with charms~$2.50.  CUTE!



For me, left to right or front to back depending on your perspective:  Fancy shirt (new) $7.50, black Talbots shirt~$2.00, white shirt~$2.00, lavender t.shirt~$2.00, Floral Laura Ashley Top~$2.50 (LOVE), pink Land’s End shirt~$1.50 and Brand New white Skirt $7.50.


For Bubble Gum:  Land’s End pajamas~$1.50, under shirt~.50, white tights~.50.


For Laffy Taffy:  His friend gave him a suit, which he has been begging me to wear but he didn’t have all the pieces, well now he does!  Shoes~$2.00, socks~.50, shirt~$2.00.


And finally…for Banana Taffy, but he actually bought it with his own money, a 1989 Thunderbird for $1500.  Having a child with his own vehicle is a blessing and a little bit scary!
