Trash to Treasure

Another weekend brings another chance to score at some local tag sales. So we loaded Ish into the car with his Cars graham cracker cookies and we hit the road early.
My favorite score of the weekend was this Sesame Street Giggle & Go Garage - it retails for about $30. It is in GREAT condition and we got it for $5.
I had to get this when I saw it - a travel pack of animals from One Step Ahead. I love the quality and it's the perfect size for when we travel. Just $1 - I can't find these on the One Step Ahead site anymore but I can guarantee they were never $1!
Ish loves loves loves the car tub stickers I got him for Easter so I thought he would get a kick out of these Leap Frog Alphabet tub stickers. He loved making the animal noises and pointing out the letters to us last night in the tub. Another great deal at only $1.
The box on this Little Tikes Waffle Town set has seen better days but this was just too awesome to pass up. $2 for this set - these are selling on Ebay for upwards of $50!! I love Little Tikes toys - they are sturdy and can hold up to the abuse Ish dishes out.
I cleaned the pieces and re-homed them into one of my fabric baskets. Good as new! Ish has already commandeered the car pieces.
Now that Ish is getting into watching dvds in the car, I'm trying to build his collection. We got these from our neighbor for $1 a piece.
And Ish's favorite find of the weekend - a Cars bowl. Perfect for his growing car collection.
And after all that hard work finding new treasures for young Ish, we were rewarded with a 20 minute cat nap from the lad on the way home!
