Saturday's Yard Sale Buys


I've been real busy the last week with Jacob's end of camp and this week is going to be another busy week. And then I got a lot of stuff going on next week too.

And Jacob is addicted to Google Maps now, so he's been on my computer a lot lately. You know how Google Maps has the "street view"? He likes looking at the maps and using the roads to see where they go. I put in an address in Long Beach, CA for him and later in the day, he was somewhere in the desert in Arizona. We bought him a NEW computer a few years ago, but there is something wrong with it (it won't power up). So now that Jacob is back into computers, DH is going to get Jacob's computer fixed.

I went to several yardsales yesterday but didn't find too much. At some sales, I left without buying anything.

$5 - sealed Lego Batman (for ebay. This particular Lego kit sells for between $75 - $149 on ebay)
$1 each - Franklin Mint The Simpson's plates. Will probably keep but not sure what I will do with them. The one features the episode with the 3-eyed fish from the nuke plant so I had to buy it.
$2 cigar case with torch lighter (will put away for Xmas for DH)
free - cigar box
.25 Super Mario big glass
.50 Staples Easy button
.10 each (10 cents!!!!!!) DVDS (some sealed). At that price, I bought all they had (just 4)
.50 vintage pyrex dish
$1 each - two new sets of dishtowels & pot holders. I like the potholders with the alumium-y backing on them, I never see them anymore in the stores.

I'm addicted to Google Maps too. I look up by blog buddies so I can see their houses. I'm just curious, not a stalker or anything creepy.....;o)

So lucky finding those DVD's for 10c - everyone around here thinks DVD's are worth $5 each. Love the Staples button.

I love the Simpsons plates! You need a double plate hanger so you can hang them together.

Have a good week, hope it isn't too stressful!
