Friday Finds

Most garage sales in my area start on Saturday but you can catch a few on Friday too. I love Friday sales because that means it's one less sale I need to squeeze in on Saturday morning. The boys and I were headed to the park so I stopped at a few yard sales on the way. Look what I found...

It's Squawkers!

As soon as I saw this parrot I knew it was FurReal's Squawkers. I paid $7 for him even though he was missing his cracker and perch. Check out what he sells for on eBay. He sells for even more with his perch and cracker.

I picked up the game for my little dinosaur lover. I don't usually pay so much for a board game ($2) especially when the box is in bad shape but I thought the dinosaur figures were so cute. I only found one auction for them on eBay.

Finding Treasure In Another's Garage

I love free stuff, especially if I can sell it for a profit. My sister-in-law did some serious cleaning out of her garage. She was kind enough to let me look through her donation pile when she was finished. I found a few things with resell potential.

Disney Movies!

We love Veggie Tales!

Yes, people still buy movies on VHS. Take a look at some eBay listings here and here.

Good item for upcoming kids' consignment sale.

Most of these books show no sign of ever being read.

These are going to the consignment sale too.

I also brought home a dragon costume, computer learning games, acrylic display cubes, and a set of brand new dishes that I plan to sell. Next time a friend or family member is cleaning out their garage go and take a peek. You never know what you'll find.
