Garage Sale Friday

Uh, what a weekend. DH completely knocked me out of being able to go to garage sales again working on another vehicle. However, there was one down the road yesterday that I slipped to. Mostly kids stuff. The kids were happy with their finds . . .



Picked up this lamp for DD for $1 - completely thought it was a Disney princess and kept wondering which one she was until I got home and DH informed me that it was Fiona from Shrek.



DS is a complete Batman fan and for .50 each I found him these two videos and threw in TMNT just to see if he'd be interested in them.

They also got a Spongebob umbrella, a stick riding horse and a pack with about 10 Mickey Mouse rings. Total spent for everything $4

On another note I decided to take a picture of Miss. Sugar yesterday to share. She kept giving me the "Go away - you're crazy" face.



I'm going to try to talk DH into taking me to a town not far from us this afternoon. Rumor has it, they have this great thrift shop where they give you a bag when you walk in the door and tell you to fill it up for $5. If not they have a pretty good sized Goodwill.

Next weekend no garage sales for me again but this time not DH's fault. It will be one of those few times during the year when I actually break out the boxes and tables and throw my own. Ever notice how going to them is a lot funner than having them.

Happy Thrifting everyone.

Great finds, and good luck at your sale! I agree, it's more fun to go garage saling than to have one!
