We normally don’t do a lot of garage sale-ing because of hubby’s odd schedule. However, Saturday he had off from work and Memaw and Papa took the older girls for the day. So, I mapped out our route the night before and off we went early Saturday morning. And boy, was it a fantastic day!
Probably the best find of the day was this Step 2 Doorway Playhouse above that we got for just $3! Brylee is already loving playing with it. We will probably leave it up for a bit and then store it in the garage once the girls grow tired of it. Then one day later bring it out again for some new found play!
By the time we got to the sale selling this Elmo table and chairs, our van was packed so we had to take the legs off to make it fit. I was going to pass this deal up because it had a sticker pricing it at $12. However, Hubby really wanted to get it and talked the guy down to $8 including six 3-ring view binders!
I’ve been wanting to get the girls some more girly dress-up outfits, so I was excited to find these at a couple different sales. The green Tinkerbell outfit was included in a pile of stuff we got from one sale, all for $6. The bumblebee costume was $3 and looks brand new. (Cami will make the cutest bumblebee ever this year for Halloween!) And the yellow dressy outfit was $0.50. Underneath on the left is a NoJo sling we got for $0.50.
This is a modge podge of different things from different sales. The red basket, Safety 1st outlet covers, Tinkerbell night light, Finding Nemo switchplate cover, and foam geometric shapes were part of the $6 sale including the Tinkerbell outfit above and the magnetic word tiles below. (Quite a deal!)
The Wall-E DVD was $2 from one sale and the Hostess Twinkie holder and Toy Story parachute guys $0.50 from another. (Hubby just had to have them!) The Tic-Tac Toe game has removable pieces and was $0.25.
Everything else was from a sale where we got a ton of books and a like new bassinet for $30. The thing in the red basket is a doll seat that attaches to a table. Combined with the doll potty, these will make a cute gift for Cami for Christmas. The Halloween/Fall items were all brand new and will make for great decorating and tot school use. And yes, that is a RedBox DVD that was being sold as well. Hubby’s pick. Random.
I found those magnetic word tiles buried at the bottom of a huge box. They are High Frequency Word Tiles from Scholastic and were part of that $6 sale. These alone retail for over $30! The binders were $0.25 a piece and part of the $8 sale including the Elmo table and chairs. The Safetyville game and Bible Bingo were $0.50 each, as were all the books and brand new U.S. puzzle. Everything is in excellent condition!
This is the book lot that we got for $30 including the bassinet below and all the random items in the other picture above. The bassinet was priced at $20, so we basically got all these books and other items for $10! The books are in amazing condition and will be saved for birthday and Christmas gifts.
This is the bassinet that was $20. It is Kolcraft and in like-new condition. We bought it for my sister who is expecting in October. If she doesn’t like it (she’s a bit picky about her style ), then we will give it to my sister-in-law who is expecting in February!
The big black item on the left is a car seat winter cover for my sister who will be traveling up north for Christmas and will definitely need for her little one! It’s never been used and was just $0.50! The sandals were a part of that $30 sale with the bassinet, books and random items. Hubby picked all the beanie babies up at our last stop. He haggled a little boy down from $0.50 each to $4 for the lot of 17. LOL. These will be a fun addition to our tot school and future preschool lessons!
It seemed like every sale we went to, only boy clothes were being sold! I did mange to find a few things for the girls. The Tangled t-shirt is a bit big for Brylee but can be used as a nightgown for now. The yellow heart sleeper is 9 months and will be great for Hayleigh when it gets cooler. The hoodie is a fleece zip jacket in 3T and the dress on the right is also 3T size, both perfect for Brylee now and later! In the middle are all 24 months clothing for Cami – a tank top, adjustable waist pants, and long sleeve dress. Everything was $0.25 a piece.
Hubby and I spent about $65 for everything, a pretty great deal considering everything we bought! We don’t get to garage sale often, so I was excited to find things we needed as well as gifts for the girls and the baby-expecting people in our lives.
