Yay for Yard Sales!

 A clock for the living room and a huge basket to put babies in for photo shoots!
Shorts and t-shirts for Ali at 50 cents each

A cute Dr. Suess cap

My friend Laura was selling these dress-ups for 50 cents each.  They are too small for Ali but will be perfect for Katri in a couple of years!  Laura gets everything new and keeps it in mint condition.  I practically buy out her entire yard sale every summer!
A cute summer outfit for $1!
Clothes for Katri--Does she need them?  That's highly debatable but who can resist cute baby girl stuff?
Some cute shirts for Justy

Books for the kids
 Laura sold me a BRAND NEW roasting pan for $5--a wedding gift she never used. 
I can't wait to make a roast in it this week!
A cute skirt for Katri with the tags still on it--50 cents!
My friend Heather's kids said she'd never sell this old, beat-up guitar but it was the first thing I bought.  With the hat, it was $1.50 and they will be wonderful photo props!
I've found 3 nice bike helmets at yard sales this summer to help keep my little bikers safe.  This one was 25 cents.
This frame is soooo cute!  My brother is into cowboy stuff.  This will make a nice birthday gift for him, especially if I fill it with pics of his new baby boy!
 At Christmastime I wanted to get Justus one of these little singing things.  We ended up getting him something else.  I found this one, brand-new with the tags still on it for 50 cents.  I'm stashing it away for his birthday in August.
A never-opened fleece tie-quilt kit for $5!  It costs me around $20 to just buy the materials to make one so I'm thrilled with this purchase!  I'm planning to make it for Kate's first birthday.  Our kids all love and use tie-quilts!
A brand-new pool set for $2.  If we don't end up using it for pool parties (we have two other pools) it will make a nice birthday gift for a child or could be used as a photo prop for a beach shoot.
I know two little boys who will love to get these magnifying glass sets in their Christmas stockings!  25 cents each!
My friend Laura sold this Crayola art kit for $2.  Brand New!
Perfect for my baby gift stash, this handprint kit for $2 is brand-new
Brand-new zippered bags for make-up or odds and ends in my purse (50 cents for both) and some little Crocs for Katri to wear next year (50 cents a pair).
Brand-new books and art stuff!  These made for the perfect birthday party gift for one of Ali's little friends who loves crafts!
Brand-new bath kits from Avon for $2 each--Perfect for my gift stash!
Tupperware and Corelle!  You can't go wrong with either!  $4 for 12 medium-sized plates.
My favorite find of the whole YEAR!!!!!  I have been wanting to replace our junkier hand-me-down picnic table for a couple of years and prayed that the Lord would help me to find one this summer, if it was His will.  Found this table for $10 at my pastor's wife's yard sale!  We will paint it a grayish color to match the house!  Hurray for sturdy outside furniture for our frequent dinner guests to use!
This beautiful punch bowl set was still in the box.  I'm not sure if it had been used or not but I talked the owner down from $5 to $3 and I love it!  Perfect for Ladies' Nights, baby and wedding showers, etc.
We borrow my friend Amy's little green thingy (my mind is drawing a total blank here on what these are called) a few times a year to fertilize our lawn so I snatched up this like-new one from my friend Laura for $4 now that we own a garage to keep it in!
I'm decorating Katri's room with a "Garden Tea Party" theme and was thrilled to find this brand-new, never-used musical tea set at my friend Amy's sale for $1.  Ali used to have this set but over the last 4 years she has lost all of the pieces.  The teapot plays "I'm a Little Teapot" which is Katri's favorite song.  What a find!

Isn't it just a grass seeder? But I think I like "green thingy" better. :-)

Great finds! You are totally the Yard Sale Queen in my book!
