Yard Sale Weekend - wheee!

There are three main streets and side streets for these sales. We normally get there at 7:30 and end at 1 and have seen it all. Today we got there at 8 and left at 1 and only made it through half!

Everyone had a sale. Normally it is every 5 houses. It was more like every 3 houses this time. I guess everyone is selling things because of the economy. I also lost track of how many houses were for sale in this neighborhood. Normally there are 2. Now there are 30+. Yards that had been HGTV worthy in the last were all run down and weedy. All the annuals that were normally out just weren't there. I know of some people that have lost their jobs and had a change in lifestyle because of it, but this was the first neighborhood in my area that REALLY showed the turn. wow!

Ok, so on to the fun stuff :)

I SO wanted these pieces when they came out but they were $67 soo um no lol I paid $6.25 for all three pieces.

Gymbo pants, $2.25 and Gymbo mermaid top, 75 cents

Kohl's kitty top, $1.50, old navy tank, $1
Gymbo board shorts, new $2, funny tshirt of two girls talking on the phone (one gets a kitten), 50 cents

Old navy polo, 75 cents. Not sure of the brand demin shorts, 25 cents. (this is one of my favorite houses, she has twins that are 1 year older than Natalie, I always get their kid's stuff).
