(I have my eye on a sandbox up the road, that I'm hoping the neighbors put out, for our neighborhood yardsale! It's a giant tugboat. I had one a loooooooong time ago when my nieces were little..........now I'd like this one for THEIR kids! lol ).

Food. True story: My friend Kathy had a can of Spam that someone had given her; she didn't like it, and had it in the yard sale. A boy was very excited, since he had never heard of meat product in a can, so he bought it for a quarter and took it home. About 15 minutes later, he came back and said his mom wouldn't let him try it, so we gave him his quarter back. (Kathy also sold several jars of homemade pickles that her boyfriend's mom had made at that same yard sale - they were actually pretty good.)
