Garage Sale Bargains

The company where I work had a multi-family garage sale in the parking lot on Saturday. We set up our own tables and tried to sell stuff we didn't want anymore and make some money. Well, I ended up shopping at everyone elses tables and found these great bargains. They were like Brand Spankin New! I got this Dora the Explorer kitchen set for a bargain price of $5. It fits perfectly in my dining room for when the grand-kids come over. It talks and explains the recipes. Abby loves it! I listed the other bargains I got.....read on.... This Dora bean bag for only $4

Diego play set with lots of pieces for only $5
This collectable set of Chrisha Playful Plush bunnies for only 50 cents each.

Paddington Bear with a Craftsman tool outfit. Perfect condition. Only 75 cents.
I saved the best for last....I treated ME....to this beautiful Thomas Kinkade limited edition Beauty in flight hummingbird called "Garden of Prayer". You will never believe how much this was. $2.00. Can you believe? It hung perfectly on my bathroom wall. It is just so perfect.
So, if I add up all of the things I bought, including the food that a co-worker was selling hot off the grill (it was an amazing burger), I was still ahead and with my earnings I was able to almost fill up my gas tank......It was a fun day. I ended up donating most of my left overs that didn't sell to Goodwill. At one point towards the end of the sale, I had blue light specials on my 3 tables. I don't want to get ready for another garage sale for a long long time....

Looks like a great excursion. Both of my boys have wanted that Diego playset in the past.

Garage sales are tons of fun! And what great bargains! I'm sorry about your tooth ache, but I'm glad you are feeling better. Tooth aches are horrible. Oh, I love the hat!

I love yard sales. We go about once a month, whenever we have the chance. But consignment sales--those things make me CRAZY. I've found the most amazing deals at our local semiannual one on toys and clothes for Suzi (broke even after selling at the same sale). I love Kincade too--that is a great find!

Awesome finds! And so glad your toothache is resolving--that's no fun at all--though I did love the Lil' Rascals photo!
Blessings!
