Here’s how I spent $6 this weekend. After a long hot summer, the community yard sales are finally starting to show up again. I went to a large neighborhood sale on Saturday which was great because it was more like a flea market where everyone brought their stuff to one large field and sold stuff out of the back of their cars. There weren’t a whole lot of pop culture treasures, but I always seem to find a few fun things…
This collection of old Peanuts books was a great deal at $3. I’ll probably sell the whole lot on eBay, but if anyone needs to fill a gap in their collection, let me know.
I picked up a few Far Side books for my kids and look what fell out of one of them. Could it be? Could this be a long lost Gary Larson concept sketch?!? probably not.
I got a Marvel Heroes miniature game for 50 cents which was a steal. It looks like it was never played since the cards are still in the shrinkwrap but the Elektra figure is missing and the game board is torn in half from being folded the wrong way. But I don’t care–getting this set of figures for 50 cents is fine by me. I do love those miniature figures!
I love buying random grab bags of toys. The bag I bought for 50 cents was filled with deer figurines (anyone need a ceramic deer salt and pepper shaker?), but it also had this tiny little Matchbox car from 1972. What could be better than an outhouse on wheels? It will go well with my recently acquired shopping cart on wheels.
Of course, the true treasure of the day was this windup sparking Godzilla. And look, he brought a friend!
Anyone else dig up any yard sale treasure this weekend?
