$14.50


Today, the boys and I went garage saleing:
$
4     black stool - never enough chairs here.
 .50 tin measuring cup
2    pair of license plates and a vintage childrens' book with great illustrations
2    vintage camera, book for #1 boy, and a present - secret, of course!
0    old stereo cabinet
2    three costumes, a pair of shoes, and they threw in a pair of license plates
4    blue jar


We started out with everyone wanting to buy everything at every stop but we worked on being savvy junkers and just looking for specific things we collect, we need, we'd really use.  It was fun to see them getting the hang of it:  a book in a series we were already reading, for example.  Pretty good troopers.  We also got strawberry lemonade from a classmate sitting on the corner.  It is our policy to buy lemonade from kids on corners whenever possible.

Gosh, I want to live at your house -- that sounds like a perfect Saturday. And the lemonade stand policy is perfect!

Money well spent - and some great lessons for your guys there. My girly also wants to buy everything at yard sales.

Your daisy photo from the last post is gallery quality work - just gorgeous!
