MY WEEKEND FINDS
Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
Thanks to lots of Ebay Bucks, I was finally able to win one of these yellow picnic baskets, after many times coming up short in the bidding wars! One day I WILL own every type of picnic basket out there, oh yes I will!
An old Made In Japan bunny (with a jaunty top hat) pushing a cart full of wacky tacky plastic crocuses. Just perfect for Easter!
An old USA planter and a McCoy pot.
Do you ever find something you're looking for, really cheap, shortly after you've spent good money on one? I got the one on the right from Ebay a few weeks ago, and now I find the one on the left, with a slight sunburn, for 50 cents. 50 CENTS! After I just paid xx for it, plus xxx for shipping. Does this happen to you? All the time?
I also found this old Snoopy pull toy, which I remember having when I was little, and "need" now. At least I waited to find it, instead of getting one on Ebay, which can cost a small fortune.
Our daughter was with me when I found him at a garage sale. She said "What are you gonna do with that?" I CANNOT WAIT until she's hunting down every single Polly Pocket she ever played with when she was little. Buying back her childhood, one toy at a time. Then she'll understand!
So, did you find anything over the weekend that you remember from your childhood?
