CHA-CHING!

"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood"...when someone comes to buy one item and walks away with five! It's only happened two or three times, when I've had a buyer show up to purchase one of my items but notices the plethora of pieces I have for sale and ends up buying two or three! Today, it happened...and in the most glorious way. A new mom to two adopted babies is stocking the nursery and came to buy one very inexpensive Ride-along-Lion (Retails for $34.99, purchased from me for $15) and went home with four additional very nice, infant and toddler toys to welcome her new children. 

The beauty of it all (besides the great influx of cash) is that I have no more monstrous toys invading my family room. Unfortunately for the kids, they don't have anything large to play with! But, the great thing about garage sales is the revolving door of amazing toys that I can get for virtually nothing! So, here's to another week of yard saling and (hopefully) some great bargains on new toys!

Kitchen and Family Room Combo Play Center
Purchased for $5 (Original asking price $10)
Sold for $20
I actually sold this piece a few weeks ago for $30, but the people who bought discovered that it was broken. None of the noise makers worked as a result of the circuitry, so I refunded them their money and posted it for a lower price. 
 
Upright Fisher Price Piano and Activity Center
Purchased for $5 (Original asking price $10)
Sold for $60





 

Fisher Price Dragon Play Toy
Purchased for $10 (Original asking price $15)
Sold for $15
Leap Frog Learning Table
Purchased for $5 
Sold for $15 (I was originally asking for $22 but gave her a deal for buying so much stuff)
This is retailing for $49.99 at Toys 'R Us right now, on special for Christmas! 
Molly will be disappointed to see this one go. She loved playing with this toy at Grandma's house.
I also sold a super cute antique stool this week that I bought about 3 weeks ago to a guy who traveled all the way from Highland Park. I paid $.50 or $1 for this and sold it for $15. 


By the way, Happy Thanksgiving to all! Hope it was a gobblerific holiday (How corny is that)?
