The Price Is Right

When my daughter was little we would eat lunch while watching the price is right. Bob Barker never had deals like these. The garden ornament is a free dump find.

This ladder ball also a  Free dump find. This game is fun and takes very little skill which is great for me.

The wreath is a dump find the rake is a free box find at a yard sale.

Two great plates for my pottery collection.
A mere1.50



My Christmas cards for next Christmas 1.00

A cookbook and a cross stitch kit 3.50

My favorite find of the day a near new tricycle for Miss Baby. A bit to big for her now but she will grow into it soon how much you ask? 5.00! It was our first weekend for yard sales let the bargains begin!
We are headed into a couple of days of much needed rain.
Welcome to my new followers.

Hello Cathy:
You certainly appear to have an eye for a very good bargain. It never ceases to surprise us as to what other people will discard as unwanted items but for which, with a little imagination, a new use may be readily found.

Connie said...

Great finds, my fave is the book by Susan Branch, which I have in my collection. Her watercolors are so beautiful and she's so talented.

Pat said...

Love the garden ornament but the best is the trike with the bell...I'm sure Miss Baby will love it.

Julia said...

This was a fruitful visit to the dump and yard sale. Wow, that tricycle looks like new. Lucky Miss Baby. JB

That tricycle is wonderful - Miss baby will love it when she can ride it! Don't you love looking around at your treasures knowing that things only cost pennies if not FREE????

I love the garden ornament and the rake :o) The other finds are good too, but that sweet little bike is beautiful, no wonder you got it when you saw it - she'll soon 'grow into it'!

I have that Susan Branch Summer Cookbook and there are some good recipes in it. The tricycle is in mint condition and Miss Baby will love it in a couple of years.

You have some great finds! Can't believe the tricycle was only $5.00. That's a bargain if I ever saw one!!!

Patti said...

I have all of her books and just love to read her little quips and sayings! and you got some great deals there, too!!

When I see what people get at these sales and for so little, I'm just itching to go and try my luck. I think I'll really give it a go this year! I don't know if I'll be as good as you, but I can try! Great finds!
