Goodwill, Garage Sales and S-P-A-M


I'm including this post as part of Mellow Yellow Monday because of the pretty yellow flowers on the skirt I found for DD.

So I guess my blog is getting around the web a little bit because today I got my first s-p-a-m-m-e-r - don't you love it.

Yesterday while on the hunt for Zhu Zhu Pets (this hamster manhunt is crazy) I stopped at the Goodwill store. When I first walked in my jaw about hit the floor and I felt like a treasure hunter who had finally hit gold. See when I'm out looking around you can bet there are a few things on my list - NES games, old smurfs and Pyrex. Yesterday I hit the motherload of NES games. However, the elusive Paperboy still escaped me and has not been added to my collection yet. For $22 I ended up with all this. The Cinderella bubble clock will go in the Christmas closet for DD.

Then on the way home I stopped by the store to get my daily fix of Dr. Pepper and saw a sign advertising a garage sale for today. So this morning DH and I got up and drove down the road to check it out. While out we found a couple more garage sales also. Not a big haul since most people are post-poneing the garage sales until after the holidays but I did find a few things.

This isn't the new one as you may be aware LOL but figured it would be an interesting watch - $2

Found this skirt for DD - .50

This little lady is also a bell and she cost a mere $2

Happy Thrifting all!!

I'm jealous--I'd love to have my own copy of V! A tad hokey but lots of fun. Good find!
