Two weekends ago we helped our church do a good spring cleaning, and I cleaned up! My daughter Hannah noticed some baskets in the back of the truck getting ready for a dump run, and before you know, she was dumpster diving...garbage picking is a talent she picked up from her dad. hahaha. But I won't complain, because I benefited from her enthusiasm. I got wonderful wicker baskets, beautiful glass ornament hangers, burlap, and other odds and ends, all for free.
Then on the way home, driving fast (Chuck was driving) something caught my eye...and I yelled out
"MILLENNIUM FALCON! STOP!"
I'm sure Chuck thought I had lost my mind...but as a collector of vintage toys, and a mother to 2 boys growing up in the 80's and 90's, how could I pass this up? The lights and sounds all work...and I got it for only $2.00 What a deal. Of course, this got our blood going so we stopped at another sale down the road.
That was where I found all this wonderful pine wood. For $1.00!
Needless to say, I was one happy camper.
What was the best deal you ever found in a yard sale?
