The $3 Shopping Trip

It was time for the annual 25 Cent Garage Sale - a PTCO fundraiser at my daughter's school. Everything was donated by families in the community and then items were sold for 25 cents each. This is the same garage sale where I acquired my jacket the previous year.

We spent $3 and walked away with:
  • A hardcover Danielle Steel novel
  • A book on Paper Mache (my daughter and I had recently done some paper mache projects)
  • A commemorative book celebrating 100 years of the Denver Zoo (coincidentally, we were headed to the Denver Zoo that afternoon because it was "free admission day")
  • A pair of men's Wrangler jeans
  • A men's shirt
  • A pair of girls jeans
  • A pair of girl's capris
  • A pair of girl's khaki pants
  • A girl's Tommy Hilfiger sweater
  • A pair of long johns
  • A woman's blouse
  • A plush "Feathers McGraw" penguin from the Wallace & Gromit episode "The Wrong Trousers" (including his "chicken disguise")

Supposedly, he is a 1989 plush toy, though I don't know if that's true. He sure looks to be in great condition and he's just around for the kids to play with and remind us of a great Wallace & Gromit episode. I don't know how much of a "bargain" Feathers McGraw is, but being Wallace & Gromit fans, we're sure happy to have him.
