Fantastic Friday Finds

Today after VBS we went garage sale-ing for a little bit. One of my friends from work was having one at her daughters house, so we headed that way. We stopped at the wrong one first, but that lady had rabbits and let the boys feed them and she ended up selling us a Buzz Lightyear for .50. I had picked it up and the batteries were still good. She wanted a dollar, but I didn't really want to spend that much, so I put it back. She said she'd sell it to me for .50 because she knew how bad Ethan wanted it. Actually, Ethan had put it back on his own before I did. Oh well. They have had fun with it.

My best deal of the day was this Little Tikes train seesaw. It was marked $10, but I only had $5 I wanted to spend, so she gave it to me for $5! There have been a lot of fights over this already! It will end up in the play yard.I got this country lamp for $2. It was my take a chance buy. It has some stains on the shade, but the rest is great. I cleaned up the little balls and wiped the shade off. I will probably try to get some kind of new shade for it. I think it was still worth $2. The light bulb was still good..50 for each of these items. The book just looked cute. I haven't read it all yet, but basically, the rabbit helps the other animals find "rooms" which are really their habitats. The purse is almost exactly like the one I have, just a different color. My zipper has been breaking and the handles are starting to crack. I asked the lady "this is a dollar right?" and she said "no, 50 cents". I just liked the Peanuts tin (and it even has Franklin on it!).My second best buy of the day was this. It has frames for 4 pictures, a wipe board, and a bulletin board. It was new in the package for .50. I am going to put black and white photos of the boys in it.
