Yeah, I can breathe!

The last week has been VEERRRYYYYY stressful. I signed up for my first consignment sale, about a month ago, and it is this weekend. I waited, and waited, and waited to start organizing my items I was going to take. I am probably the best procrastinator out there! I barely printed my tags two days ago, and today, Wednesday, was my drop off apointment. UUGHHHH...Last night was a very long night, making sure the toys were clean, small items were bagged, and battery operated toys were working. Tape, scissors, Mr. Clean magic eraser, hangers, and safety pins have been my best friends these past few days! Here are some of the items I took to consign..

I had a total of 115 items, mostly toys. Toys I never, didn't have time to post on ebay, and or procrastinated posting, toys that didn't sell, and toys that I was waiting to get a bigger selecton of. I must say I do feel better about having those items out of my house, since now there is a little dent of room in my garage! Hopefully alot of them don't come back, or if they do it's okay 'cause I have another consignment show in a few weeks.

I was good and didn't go to any thrift stores this past week, well, I did yesterday. Got a few books, and two puzzles. Saturday I went to a few yard sales. I had 4 planned but two were no show yard sales. Advertised, but nobody and no items outside. Perhaps the slight drizzle scared them away?! It didn't last long though, and didn't seem to scare away the other yardsalers! The first yard sale, (really, should have been 3rd yard sale) mostly had clothes. I bought a few shirts for little sweetpea and a Christmas nightgown still new with tag for $3.50. Oopps, sorry no pic.
Last, but not least yardsale, had me doing a happy dance! I found this pyrex bread pan for a $1.00, and the glass butter dish for 50 cents.
As I was walking away I peeked into a box and spyed with my little eye some tracks that said Tomy on them. I knew they had to be Thomas, I moved the tracks around and saw some Thomas trains. I asked how much, and the nice little boy said $3.00 for everything. Okay, sold!
I already packaged them nicely, and listed them on ebay! Yeah, me. There's one thing I didn't procrastinate about this week!
Hope you all found some great treasures, and have a relaxing week!

  1. Great job on the Thomas stuff. You will have to let us know how the sale goes for you. My toys for consignment came from the same source. The no good on Ebay oops pile.

  2. At least we have a way to recoup our $$ when toys don't work out on eBay! Thanks for linking up!
