Don't Be a Hater

I did not think I could ever top my Five Dollar find until today. I'm not sure if I posted about going to a rummage sale where they had the little tykes car in the garage and I literally drag her out of the thing, which was not for sale. I had decided to get her one for her birthday, unless I spied one at a rummage somewhere. As I'm driving the pharmacy I couldn't believe it a little tykes car in a yard having a rummage. I quick turn around and stopped. My heart sank as I saw no there was no tag on it. I asked if it was for sale and they said yes. I asked how much and they said..........


ONE DOLLAR!



I asked again, a dollar? and they said yes. Here's your dollar; I almost told them to keep the five. I was thinking I was going to be forking over $45 for a new one, but I will take the dollar one, it may not have any of the stickers for the headlights and such, but Peanut Butter had to be forced inside after playing this afternoon. I hope no one is hatin' on my awesome finds.

That's an awesome find!
I paid about $50 for Thomas' last week! We have to peel Thomas out of it when it's time to go in.

Score! After your $5 find, I keep my eyes peeled when cruising the neighborhood.

Awesome!!! I always hear of people finding those at garage sales. I gave up, and spent the 45.00 at Wal Mart. It was worth every penny. My boys love it!

You rock! That is an awesome find! My son loved those little cars, too. One day he didn't want to get out of it at a friend's house and she gave it to us. (her kids were too old for it by then.)

My son loved his years ago, (8 years ago) It is still in the garage. It will make its way out when I finally decide to have a yard sale.

Well I don't hate cause I got one of mine for free! The other one was a gift, so I've paid nada for 2 cars! I did find one for my neighbor at a garage sale for $10, I should have kept it though since I'm sure I'll need 3 next summer!
