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.
