I’ll admit that I got up late that morning, still trying to get over a long-lasting cold.  So when I looked at the garage sale listings on craigslist and saw the one Friday sale, I figured I should try to hustle.  In the photos for the listing, I spotted a Baby Beans.  And for the next hour I wondered if it would still be there.  As I approached the house, an hour after the initial start time, I was surprised to see that the street was lined with cars.  Shouldn’t everyone have left by then?  No, the house was packed full of people.  I searched for the table I had seen in the photo and sure enough, there was Baby Beans.  I grabbed her and then found a Drowsy doll under the table.  I had had a Baby Beans in my childhood as well as a Drowsy, though they went by different names.  Also on the table was a 1936 Monopoly game and a Russ 1983 Rocking Horse ornament that I mistook for one from the Hallmark Series.  Lying in the middle of the floor was the Holly Hobbie Carrie doll, near and dear to my heart and in good condition.  And upstairs I picked up the vintage Eden Peter Rabbit.  After marveling at the unique architecture of the house, I walked outside to the dude in the surfer T-shirt and he said $5 for all.   I’m thinking maybe $175 potential gain.

There were all of three sales on my list.  I headed to the first but was side-tracked by a sign for a sale not advertised online.  There I bought the Fisher Price Imaginext Pirate Ship, the Playskool Heroes Luke Skywalker Landspeeder, the Disney carousel, the three Peanuts characters and the tin Ugly Doll Truck Bank, all a dollar each.

On to the nicest people on the planet’s garage sale.  A regular whispered to me that the prices were extremely reasonable.  Everything was 50¢ to $2.  I picked up a box of clothes for my son, a faux fur coat, a lovely green dress, a Calvin Klein tote new with tag, a Spode Christmas pitcher, a Ralph Lauren bar set new in the box, the Lucy Hallmark figurine, two pairs of Born sandals, Coach sandals, black Fergalicious flats, all for $20.

I headed to the second sale on my list which I left quickly because their prices were way out of range. And it wasn’t quite time for the senior center’s flea market, so I backtracked to some signs I had seen.  They led me to an estate sale run by questionable people.  I started in the garage and found the purple hoodie and then went upstairs to find the Ugg boots, total $6.

On to the Senior Center, I was searching for previous sellers where I had found amazing things, but previous sellers were not to be found.  I did pick up the Eden Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit and Fox for $2, the Lefton angels at $1 and the vintage Dakin Santa bean bag for 25¢.

Total of about $35.  Potential gain $700.
