Is this an interesting looking table or is this a total mess? We like the color, but other than that, we’re not too shure.
Remember last weekend, when we only made one yard sale stop? Well, this weekend we made up for the deficit. We hit a number of sales on Thursday, skipped going anywhere on a rainy Friday and were back out the door on Saturday.
The result? A veritable avalanche of deals.
But what about you? Did you buy anything awesome? Was your yard sale a monster success? Let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

These crafting supplies were a great find because they were so darn cheap. The garland was 50 cents, the two packets of beads were 25 cents each, the mostly unused paints (in gold and silver) were 50 cents and the big bowl in the back — filled with tiny floral arrangement clippings — was 50 cents.
Our deal of the weekend was definitely this totally unopened Hamilton Beach slow cooker. This was big one too — six quarts. It retails for $40 or so — we got it for $15.
This unruly mess of Disney accoutrements is actually an unassembled Little Mermaid playset. We did eventually get it all together. This retails for $30 or so, and we got it for $5. Are all the parts there? Who knows. Does it matter to our 3-year-old? No.
We got a “Rio” DVD for $2. But that’s not the interesting thing here. That doily is — it’s made out of shells! How neat is that? A little kitschy, sure, but we liked it enough to spend 50 cents.
This slightly old Makita 18-volt cordless drill set works great. We got two drills, which is nice, but we would have preferred to get two power packs. Anyway, everything in the picture came to $20.
OK, technically this purchase was at a antique store, but who would have thought anyone would put an old LJN wrestling figure in an antique store? We got the Junkyard Dog for $4.50. It’s going to a friend who is a massive WWE fan from way back.
Yep, we are still buying Wii games and equipment. This off-brand controller and steering wheels were ours for under $5.
This too-big-to-be-called-cute Christmas decoration features a train that winds its way through the Christmas Tree branches. This purchase, for $5, might be a bit of a dud. It makes a lot of annoying gear noises when its activated.
And one more Christmas decoration for the holidays. This sleigh statue retailed for $40, and is very cute. It cost us $3.50.
