Garage Sale Stories! May 18th

I have a permanent Saturday morning alarm clock now and his name is Greg.  He LOVES the yard sale hunt, which is awesome to me.  We tried to get my older son to go with us but that would involve him changing out of his pajamas before noon so he declined. 

It was drizzling rain when we left so I didn't think there would be much, but there was a community yard sale up the road that I usually get some great finds at.  

Problem was by the time we made it up the hill, it was POURING.  As in, Greg and I couldn't even hear each other talk in the car it was so loud. 

So we did what any other crazy people would do and we started shopping anyways! 
 Finds for the day were a brand new black silk dress and shruggie for Lauren to wear this fall - $6, free American flag platter that will be great for BBQ's and family parties this summer, 67 vintage Barbie NIP McD's toys - $6 (or .11 cents each) a Littlest Pet Shop set for Lauren - $1 and Greg scored over 200 Pokemon cards in case, 3 figures and some Bakugans for $10 (he was THRILLED!)
My best score?  These Ugg Casita Wahine boots in a size 9.  I already have them listed with one bid at $149.00 and hoping they go even higher!  I paid $15 for these!

We were soaked and decided to come home to make french toast with the family and be cozy.  Greg went from a high of excitement to HUGE tears when he discovered his pet lizard, Rocky had died that morning.  Funeral plans pending.  
It broke my heart to see him cry like that. 


  1. Awww poor lizard. I sympathize we thought we were going to have to get rid of a cat bc of its health problems my 7yo was heartbroken....but antibiotics fixed the cat....yeah! I also found classic short uggs with some wear but heck they were 1! Yeah for ugg finds :)
