I just have to share this 'cause I'm so excited. Okay, this was the first yard sale I've ever been to, and with deals like today's, well, this is just the beginning.<br><br>
So I'm at a friend's yard sale (multi-family deal), and there's a diaper bag (the hanging kind that you stack dipes in) with $2 marked on it, PACKED FULL of cloth dipes. So I'm thinking $2 each, which I'm totally up for, cause these are good velcro closures and handmade and prefolds (THICK prefolds)...but no, they're $2 for all of them! And then I found another bag full of dipes, also for $2. I kept checking with my friend to make sure that they weren't mismarked ('cause boy, I'd be ticked if someone sold my entire stash for $4!). But no, they just wanted to get rid of them. So I bought them all! 20 fitted, velcro closure diapers, 20 diaper-service quality prefolds, and 9 homemade dipes! On top of all that, a few Dappi covers, lots of the vinyl pants (haven't decided what to do about those since I don't use them), and a couple pairs of itty bitty undies.<br><br>
I'm still flyin' high after this find!!!

I LOVE yard sales. I have yet to run into diapers tho. I'm pretty seriously considering putting a listing in the free ad paper that's in my area telling people I will take cd off their hands. I bet I'd get some takers.<br><br>
BTW - Good Score!

Wow!<br>
What a great find you had. I'd be flyin' high too.<br>
I've found a few good CD things on items in the past but haven't scored yet with my current baby.<br><br>
Way to go!

I've not gone to many garage sales so I've not found those deals but we have a great resale shop where I got 2 dozen cpfs for $12, a few covers for a few bucks each, and bags of training panties for $5 for 6
