May 1st Yard Sales

Two neighborhoods in my town had yard sales as well as a few single family sales - we went to as quite a few of them starting at 7am. By 9, we were tired and had a full vehicle so we headed back home.
Here's what we bought--

Mary Englebriet cherry crock - 25 cents!

I think these Melamine baby dishes are so cute, they were just $1 for the whole lot

not pretty pink Pyrex like last week, but these clear Pyrex bowls will be very useful $1
2 sippy cups 25 cents each

4 like new bathtowels - 25 cents each - perfect for dog washing

Stacking cup toy 50 cents
assorted books, 25 cents each
salt and pepper shakers - maybe $2?

Little Tykes Slide and rocking horse, also a swing for Gavin.
Outdoor toys were on my list of things I hoped to find and these were all in great condition and very cheap, I think each one was $2,

Theo with the Little Tykes turtle sand box - $5.
Jeff saw the new ones at Walmart for $37.99

Jeff and Bobby hung the swing up from the pergola - and you can see my garden in the background - everything is in pots - more on that later.

I hope you all got out and found some great things at yard sales too!

  6. I love the child plates and outdoor toys. Garage sales are great place for stocking up on stuff for children. I wish I had more Saturday mornings off to go shopping at garage sales.

  10. wow - you got some great things (and so cheap)! We've been going to thrift stores and garage sales lately to find tea items for our tea party and I've been surprised at how high everything's been priced. We haven't found any bargains as good as you.

    Also, I gave you an award on my blog. Please check it out.

  13. Wow, great bargains! I love that you even thought of a use for the towels before you bought them. We used to buy people's old stuffed animals as chew toys for our pup :)
