One of the reasons I love yard sales is how random they can be. You really never know what you will find. The yard sales this weekend gave up some strange stuff, but I love strange stuff, so it’s all good. We hit a neighborhood yard sale that boasted 100 families participating. The threat of rain may have scared off some of them, but the ones that braved the weather made getting up at 6:30 AM worth it.
The first sale we visited had these four Neca Kill Bill figures for $.50 each. Tarantino figures are certainly an unusual sight at our suburban yard sales!
At the same sale, I also found this awesome Johnny Lightning Batmobile model for $4. It hasn’t been assembled and all the pieces are still in the bags. I’m going to have fun with this!
Earlier this summer, I picked up some Disney Pixar Cars diecast cars, and sold them on eBay for $2.50 each, so I jumped on this collection for $10. I can probably sell the case for $10 by itself.
This Marvel poster was a fun find for a quarter. It looks like everyone is there. This poster will be going up in one of my kid’s rooms, but I’m going to have to dig out my old Marvel Universe books to teach my kids the name of everyone.
I also got a couple of these iMac posters for another quarter. These posters were included in the box when you bought an iMac. Macintosh has always had incredible advertising campaigns, and these posters are great examples of that genius.
The rain set in and the yard sales started to fizzle so we went to a huge children’s toy and clothing sale that was being held in a high school. I’ve never had much luck at these events, but this time I found a Ziploc bag of old action figures for $1.50, which included these Star Wars figures — Lando, Bespin Guard, and… Greedo, you look… different. I honestly don’t know what the heck this green fellow is.
In that same Ziploc bag was this mixed up group. Mr. T, you also look… different. These 80’s A-Team figures came with a pile of original accessories and weapons. I couldn’t believe this bag of figures was one of the last remaining toys at the sale. I guess all the moms of young kids didn’t know awesome when they saw it.
Want to know why my kids don’t complain about waking up before the sun rises? They hit the Pokémon and Bakugan jackpot this weekend (again!). It was during this purchase that our 3-year-old took a nose dive onto a driveway. Once the blood stopped spurting, we decided that it was time to call it a day.
Like I said, there were some strange finds at the yard sales, but the stranger the better, in my opinion. So, did anyone else have any luck at the yard sales this weekend?
