I was pretty sure it was going to be a slow weekend for sales, but we did see quite a few. I found some goodies for my classroom, some more fabric napkins, more material, another picture frame in need of some paint love, clothes, and Legos. I also found the most adorable little Santa Claus tea light holder. I know it's only July, but I couldn't help it!
The material, napkins, and frame were a steal for $2.00. Slowly but surely I will build up our napkin supply. I was going to get some at my beloved Target, but $1 for 8 at a yard sale overrules $10 for 12 in my book. The best part was they had never been used, the tags were still attached!
I headed over to another sale that was suppose to have a bunch of classroom materials, but unfortunately I didn't see much for school. I did, however; find a great deal on clothes for me! At $0.50 each I made out with 3 skirts, 1 long sleeve blouse, and a beautiful red wool cardigan. All great name brands and everything fit when I got home, so no money wasted!!
I found a bunch of great books, the Legos, and the Santa at another sale. I got everything there for $5.00. Since they were mostly hardcover books I know I scored big time for my classroom! (I just realized looking at the picture the boys had already made off with some of the books. What a terrible thing it is to have kids that like to read! Teeheehee!)
We also found some cute model planes for the boys to add to their loft decor. At $1.00 for the pair K was pretty happy. I also found some wood craft kits for the boys to build. At $1.00 each it was a great bargain compared to the original $14.99 price tag for each.
On to practical things, we found a little evaporative cooler for $2.00. Spoiled dogs is all I have to say about that one!
I went out Sunday too and found more Legos (never opened) and 2 Magna Doodles for a whopping $3.00. I have wanted some Magna Doodles for my class for a while, but retail prices were just too much. Now that problem is solved!
My favorite finds this weekend were a memo board that goes great with the kitchen nook decor (At $0.50, I couldn't resist!) and a very feminine top top for $1.65 at Salvation Army. It is so girly and I love the pattern!
I didn't realize all the goodies we found until I started listing everything for you all! I guess it was better than I thought!!!
