Some things I have picked up over the last week.

The Simpsons Scene It Dvd Game Brand new still in shrink wrap

Veggie Tales Tie Blanket

Two copies of Harry Potter Scene It DVD Game. One was priced a $1 more than the other and I questioned the cashier about it and she gave me both for the lower price.

Kitten Surprise It came with 4 kittens. Prices are all over on ebay so I listed it with a best offer

John Lennon Imagine Blanket

Manhattan Toy Monster Puppet

VTG Stamp kit

Some Cocalo baby blankets

and a Color maze toy I'm keeping for Ryker. I did not look it up on Ebay because then I will want to sell it.

VTG Photographs

This pass fall I bought a box full of vintage photographs. I put them away and forgot about them until recently. I started to sort through them and listed two lots on Ebay. I still have plenty to go plus I have a scrap book with some in as well. I thought maybe they would sell for a decent price on Ebay, but unfortunately, they do not. Here are the ones I listed.

One lot is zoo pictures and the other is pictures of couples. I believe both lots are from the 1920's

Lady with a bear.

Some cranes and a family in front of a fountain

and the couples:

Goodwill Finds

I went to Goodwill yesterday and found a few things.

The Spongebob socks are for Ryker and so is the baseball toy.

I found another Special Edition Tickle Me Elmo plush. Today, I am going to buy another Elmo from my Facebook garage sale page but that one is the story telling Elmo. I also found a hand puppet by Manhattan Toys. I thought the puppet would be a high seller but it is not.

The bag has a Build A Bear Soccer uniform for a big bear and then a smallfrys soccer uniform. There was a skateboard and a backpack with binoculars also.

The pink security blanket is by Carter's. It originally came with a bunny which I could not find.

I went back to the thrift store where I bought the cycling jersey from and found the matching cycling shorts. The bibs looked stretched out to me so I listed it low. I hope it sells as quickly as the jersey.

And I Would Walk 500 Miles...

So maybe not 500 miles but I did walk about 1 mile (14 blocks) to purchase this toy.

Yup Buzz Lightyear wings. I hope they are still selling as high as they used to. I found them on my local Facebook garage sale page. It was listed in a lot with other Buzz toys and two people already commented before me so they had first dibs. I was so happy to see both passed on the wings (not the dolls) and I was able to purchase them. Unfortunately, with this cold weather, 14 degrees out, my truck wouldn't start so I had to walk over there. I sure hope it will be worth it.

Some Past Finds

I haven't done a finds post in awhile, so here are a few things I have thrifted over the last few weeks.

Play Mobil Castle set. This was in the green storage tote with tape all over the top of it, so I wasn't sure what exactly I was buying. Hopefully all the pieces are there.

Kodak Easy Share paper and ink cartridge set. It is missing two of the 4 ink and 3 packs of paper but should still go for good money.

Some baby dolls. Not sure if they are worth much but they are cute.

A Blue's Clues Refrigerator I know some Blue's toys can go for a lot but Ryker has decided this is his and I haven't looked it up yet.

Some vintage leg warmers. I thought this looked cool but not sure if they are a good seller.

Child's plate set. I sold an older version of this in November for around $30 I think?

A Tickle Me Elmo TMX Special Edition that I traded some mini-cabbage patch dolls for.

Pikachu that I bought in a lot of toys from Facebook

and an owl bank that my niece found for me while we were at Goodwill.
