I had a decent haul on Friday. Nothing too spectacular, but some goodies. My morning started out wonderfully. As I was heading out to my first sale of the morning, I drove past a beautiful Little Tykes playhouse in someone's trash. Obviously, I quickly shifted gears and backed up! I knew my dearest friend had been looking for one, so I decided to scoop it up for her. The thing about dumpster diving - it only makes you a little embarrassed for a millisecond until you realize how awesome you are. I'm pretty sure these things sell for like $200 in the stores. Crazy luck!
