Re: To my fellow garage salers

I just got my first garage sale finds.

We got:
Little Tykes Basket Ball Hoop
Little Tykes Wagon
Thomas the Train book with noise making buttons
Happiest Toddler on the Block Book
Pottery Barn Kids Rocking Moose (yes, a moose not a horse)

all in EUC for $30

Now for the really sad part. The reason I went to the garage sale was because the advertised Thomas the Train toys in the ad in the newpaper. I got there at 8:00 when it started. The guy that walked up there before us got a train table and complete Thomas Wooden Rail system, tracks, engines, everything for $125.

A Thomas Wooden Railway set is what I wanted to get DS for Christmas. We could have had a table and complete set, with lots of engines, for what it will probally cost us for a very basic set with just the Thomas engine.

We were so close.

So sorry mama, I know how frustrating that is.

I found some awesome vintage Little People stuff and other really old school stuff. I love yard sales. They're totally my retail therapy.

Cool finds! I am going to have to live vicariously through you all this time. I am too wiped out to hit the yard sales today. Some yahoo was shooting an AK 47 right outside my house last night/ early this morning.

No. I wish. We live in the outskirts of town next to the yahoos and the drug dealers... didn't realize it when we moved in.
