Last week was the first real “yard sale week” around here. DH and I went to a 40 family sale where we found this NEW IN BOX Radio Flyer steel wagon which we bought for $10:

We also found this Kettler pedal go-cart for $5:

Now, getting ready for this weekend, a few people have asked me where I find the yard sales I shop at. Well, first I look on Craigslist (our local Craigslist). I search under “garage sales” using the words “multi-family”, “development”, “community”, and “neighborhood”. I prefer neighborhood sales to single-family sales. I then narrow it down by location. I also search our online local paper as well. Hope that is helpful as you hunt for deals this weekend and this summer!

Well, I didn’t get to any “real” yard sales yet this season. I am still anxiously awaiting their “arrival”, but seeing as it is actually supposed to hit 70 degrees this spring (FINALLY!) this week. . .I am holding out hope for this coming Saturday!

Until then, I thought I would share one of my favorite finds from last season: a Matilda Jane dress for Thing #3. If you aren’t familiar with Matilda Jane, it is a very expensive boutique line of adorable dresses (that I can’t afford to buy new). This dress was $2.00!!! It would sell for around $60 new. I was thrilled when I found it!

Here are some pictures of Thing #3 modeling my find for church this morning. I don’t expect I will find Matilda Jane clothing at yard sales very often, but it really was a fun find!

First, here she is with her brothers!
