The weather has not been cooperating for the yard sale season around here. Once again, the clouds were threatening all morning on Saturday, and I think it kept a lot of people from participating in the neighborhood sales I hit. I did manage to find a few items–the voice-changing Darth Vader helmet was a fun score for a dollar. I also got a TMNT turtle playset without any of its pieces for another dollar, but my son already claimed that one! The large Donatello doll and backpack Super Soaker set me back a whopping 50 cents. In total, I spent a little less than $20 for the day.
I usually bypass old XBox and Playstation games, but this stack caught my eye just because it was almost a complete run of Ghost Recon titles. I threw in a couple of other games to get the seller to drop the rice to a dollar a game, which I thought was a great deal.
These large figures were hard to miss. For whatever reason, I keep coming across toys from Small Soldiers this year at the yard sales. Those Small Soldiers Happy Meal toys I picked up a few weeks ago turned out to be a pretty good find.
One of my favorite finds of the day was this Amazing Spiderman diecast bus–and Skeletor has a sweet-looking ride!
Now, this was a great pickup for just 50 cents–a Hot Wheels slot car set with most of the pieces, and it even works! All I really wanted was the Batmobile, but when I got home, I saw what the Joker recently sold for on eBay. Holy schmoley Batman!
So how are the yard sales treating you so far this season? Who else found some pop culture goodness this weekend?
