My free finds

I went yard saleing this past weekend to try to find a few things. I didn't go out as early as I wanted to but that turned out to be a good thing. I hit one yard sale as they were packing up, or should I say putting everything out for free!
I got a kids shopping cart, which is one of the things I was looking for. I also got a doll house with some furniture. This doll house isn't made anymore and first hit stores in 1989. I took it to test my 2 1/2 year old daughter, she's never played with a doll house before. I want to get her the Loving Family Dollhouse, but wanted to make sure she'd play with it, and she loves this free dollhouse. Now I know for her next birthday to purchase the Loving Family, and I'll have peace of mind that she'll play with it. Here's a pic off all the furniture. We also got a Dora Doodle Pro.
A great way to get great deals at yard sales is hit them when they're almost over or better yet, when they are over. It's true the selection won't be as good, but you can get some really great deals, or great stuff for free. People don't want to drag the stuff back inside and will sell it for almost anything, or just put in on the curb for free.

Awesome! I love yard sales. I got a few kiddie dump trucks that were in a free box today. They were a little dirty but I came home, set them out in the rain and now they look perfect!

So true. So many people forget about garage and yard sales. There actually is some cool stuff out there to be found. You did great!

I am hopping over from the Blog-A-Thon. I am trying to hit everyone this weekend (I have a lot of hopping to do). *hehe*

Have a wonderful and safe three day weekend!
