Garage Sale Treasures June 24th
This weekend was a busy one for yard sales in our area! Over 90 sales to choose from. I always hope that went to the right ones :). We found a few fun things-nothing too big, but a few things for everyone.
First up, some clothes for me! They are maternity, which is on my list of needs. I am looking for more capris and jeans since, sadly, it seems I am a bit bigger this pregnancy then the other 3. Or they shrunk-I'm going with that answer :). A knit skirt, capris, 3 tees and a pretty shirt, $6.50-the pretty shirt was 3 of that. AND 2 super cute pairs of boots! 50 cents a piece!!
These were probably my favorite purchase of the day-newborn size clothes for the baby (who I believe will be called Explorer). I've mentioned before, my babies are always needing to wear the preemie and newborn size clothes for the first month or so, and it is a very hard size to find. I try to keep a good stash of this size. These are all Carter's except the Baby Gap set, so I was willing to pay a little more for super cute stuff. There are also 2 pair of shoes, a dress and leggings for next year. The sets were 2.00 each, the boots were 1.00, and everything else was 75 cents or less. Total 11.75.
Clothes for Mini Cooper, including a Hartstrings dress for 25 cents, 2 Rams dresses for 25 cents each, 2 different sizes(we love the Rams), Lands' End day dress for 1.00, and a super cute watermelon set for 50 cents. 5.25 total.
For Charger, I hit another quarter sale (seems they are rather common around here-which I LOVE!). I really like the set in the middle, and we needed jammies-shorts ones that is. There is even a Tommy Hilfiger polo in there. $2.75 total.
And for Mustang, most of this came from the quarter sale as well. My favorites were a super cute Gap green stripe shirt and matching yoga pants, a Tommy Hilfiger polo, and pjs! We found the Gymboree apple dress at another sale for 50 cents. $4.50 total.
Snow boots! The black pair is for Charger, 50 cents, the pink are for Mustang, 1.00, flip flops 25 cents. Not shown is a pair of tennis shoes for Charger, 50 cents.
School type stuff, Lincoln Logs set, $2.00, Discovery Toys park-its a shape matching game, 1.00. Word puzzles, 2.00, Peter Pan book on tape, 50 cents, and a color puzzle game that Mustang picked out, 50 cents.
A Polly Pocket set that Mustang found (and loves). $5.00 for everything! It has all the pieces, she just couldnt find the one big piece when I took the picture (she since found it). I asked her to put the set out on the table for me to take a picture. I had no idea she would lay out each an every piece-including the random shoe that ended up in her bag. LOL I guess she really likes it!
My deal of the day. 8 LeapFrog books and cartridges for 1.00 total!! One book and cartridge dont match and there is a duplicate, but I really dont care. It was a steal!
And probably the favorite of the day (at least for the kids) is this Dora Magic Castle complete with tons of people and accessories-$10.00. Oh how I wish I could have found this alone and saved it until Christmas. It was seriously like Christmas when we got this home. The kids have been playing with it-together-for more then 2 days!
I noticed that my pictures are missing a big lot of tractors for Charger, 3.00, a Scrabble game, 25 cents, and a brand new shirt for my husband, 25 cents.
So $59.50 for everything-not too bad! I have to admit my budget for the week was 50, and the Dora Castle was at nearly the last sale. It put me over my budget, but I'm glad that I went for it, the kids are loving it!
I'm linking up at My Life on a Taffy Pull, for the weekly round up of Garage Sale Treasures-come by and share yours, too!
