More Garage Sale Findings

Written on February 14, 2006 by Kevin.

As mentioned yesterday, my wife and I had the opportunity to take Rylan out garage sale hopping this past weekend. The biggest catch was obviously the children's table but we were able to find some other nice finds as well.

We are always on the lookout for good books for Rylan to read when he gets older, and for us to read now to him. While there are many books that are sold at garage sales that are beat up, many others still have a lot of life in them. Its a matter of spending the time to track them down. We were able to find quite a few books this time around and even some for my wife.
Children's Books
- Show White sound board
- Tigger's Family Tree
- Eeyore Finds Friends
- Oh, Brother! Somebody's Grumpy!
- Pooh's Christmas in the Hundred-Acre Wood
- The Christmas Carol
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
- Treasure Hunt Mazes (didn't realize was half completed)

Children's Books
There are toys that all boys will play with in their lives, and the same goes for girls. These toys have withstood the hands of time and are loved by many generations. Well atleast I have memories of playing with little green army men. We picked up a bag of army men and while we are not sure if Rylan will be able to play with them when he gets older, they will work nicely at my desk at work for now.

Table Update: Sanding is 66% completed and we took our first attempt at redoing the table top. I say first attempt because it failed. We ended up peeling off all paper that we had glued on and will resurface it another way prior to sealing it. Another update will come in a few days I imagine.
