Yard Sale Loot

Ok, not the cleverest of titles... but I do feel satisfied with the goodies that I brought home after making the yard sale rounds on saturday. Who knew the back of the car would end up filled to the gills?

Yes, there are three booster seats that I purchased for a total of $6. C doesn't need them quite yet. I also found a children's art easel for $3 - chalkboard on one side, white board and shelf on the other. I've been looking for a camera tripod. Found this one for $1. (The woman begged me to take it to my car before her husband took it into the house again.) C's favorite items of the day included the Disney princess dress-up trunk full of clothes. For $2, she now owns several tutus, Snow White's costume, a genie costume and more. She layered them all on, then pranced around the living room. The books, doll stroller, bracelets, 90+ legos in carrying container, state capitol and trivia flash cards - all were $1 or less. Grand total $18 for the day!
By popular request, here's the 25 cent apron purchased last week while finding my Wuthering Heights book for free. It's a cheerful little apron, don't you think?
P.S. Last week's craft fair was pretty slow. The good news is that my etsy shop is now brimming with my wares.

Hi Diane! You’re invited to “My Favorite Things Monday” inspired by the Sound of Music! You sharing a picture and story of your current ‘favorite thing’ that cheered you up when life got you down, would be a blessing! I hope you can come! http://www.sarahlcc.blogspot.com I found a free blog design that has a little blue birdie on it from Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates, it reminded me of your site. Maybe you have used it before?? It was blue...

Well done! Looks like you hit the jackpot! It's a good feeling, isn't it? Garage saling is one of our favorite passtimes.
