I haven't shown you my yard sale scores from this summer yet! There have been a few Saturdays I've gone out - most of them rainy, of course. I haven't found any crazy amazing finds (yet), but plenty of moderately cool ones, which is happy.
The day before Princess' birthday, I found her a New In Box metronome. I was wondering if I should get it or not when I peeked in the box and saw that it was cherry red! Also, the price tag said $37, but the lady sold it to me for $3. So that was good.
That day I also found some New In Box Freaky Little Girly Pet toys - for less than $1, and some manga. Really, I should have wrapped this stuff up for her birthday...
See that box in the middle? I'll bet you could only find Gocco stuff at the yard sale of a blogger. It's a fabric kit!!! I need to pick up a few more bulbs, though.
And we've been having fun playing the Lego Creator game with our little Lego Maniacs - although somehow there are always more people (clones) than we need - and some casualties. Pretty sure that's not how you're supposed to play...
Speaking of clones... I stopped by one yard sale recently because I saw that they had lots of boys' clothes. As I'm looking around I find a Star Wars clone costume. One of those cheesy ones that I just won't buy for my kids (at least not full-price), that nearly every boy in our neighborhood had last Halloween (and still wear regularly for Star Wars battles). Mask and all, I couldn't turn it down for less than $1.
I was driving home with my box of clothes wondering exactly how on earth my two boys were going to share the costume, and then when we unpacked the box... somehow there were TWO costumes. I swear I only saw and picked up one, but I'm loving that somehow it multiplied in the box. ;) The boys dress in costumes often, so it's fun to have more stuff to throw in the dress-up box.
Let's see - that's the interesting stuff, but I've also picked up some clothes and books, cool letter stamps, and an outside table for the back patio (kinda seen here - last photo). We'll eat outside more when it stops raining!
I have more on my list to look for this summer - what are you looking for? Or have you found anything awesome?
p.s. I just noticed this is post #600!!! A nice big round number, eh?
