Still waiting for warm weather here. It’s supposed to be spring, but feels like it’s not. Where is the weather that is 60 degrees and sunny? I can’t wait for regular yard sales to start, but the weather just doesn’t seem to be cooperating yet.

DH and I went to two mommy markets this Saturday (believe it or not, we really do enjoy spending our “date” mornings this way. . .sometimes we mix it up and go grocery shopping. . .we’re exciting that way.)

Anyway, here are just a FEW of my finds for this week:

For Thing #1

It was a rather gloomy and cold weekend. Regular yard sales have not started up yet. Thankfully, April and May are just around the corner, and I can barely wait.

At the one consignment sale I got to, however, I found something quite unique. A Discovery Store Kids “Phases of The Moon” remote control light-up moon. It was only $2!

As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to buy it. Mostly, because my son had just gone through a science unit on the moon and its phases. In fact, we spent two weeks writing down the phase of the moon each night (I have to add, it was a very long two weeks trying to remember to send Thing #1 out to look at the moon every evening!)

So, for $2, we can see all the moon’s phases right in our own home. Happily our “Phases of the Moon” moon worked. Here are a few pictures:

Next week is a big mommy market, so I might have some better finds. Until then, did you find anything worth mentioning this week?

This week my husband and I went to 3 local mommy markets. I am still waiting for the official “yard sale season” to start around here, but the mommy markets have been a lot of fun. They help ensure that my kids have way too much clothing. However, I buy quality brands, and sell a lot of their outgrown clothing on Ebay.

Here are my just a FEW of my finds for this week:

1. Baby Gap plaid sundress set–$2

The past two weeks, I went to the first mommy markets of the season. It was exciting, because even though I prefer “real” yard sales, I still found some great deals. To me, yard sales are like treasure hunting. You just never know what you will find. It was great to get out into the “hunt” again!

I wanted to share a few of my first finds with you.
