New Car Shopping
So I was really excited when I saw these new cars at a yard sale today priced at 3/$1.00. When I explained Operation Christmas Child to the seller and his wife, he ended up selling me 73 of them for $20.00. I left my card because he said he has hundreds more and will consider selling more to me.
I went back at the end of the day as they were cleaning up and he sold the rest of the cars he had out--62 more for $15.00. I left them an OCC special report magazine and a brochure. His wife is interested in volunteering at the community-wide packing party on September 29th and he promised again to sell me more cars when he goes through the rest of his collection.
I explained to them how toy cars are one of the most coveted items by the boys who receive the shoeboxes and that many of them have never owned a toy of their own.
When I came home I was excited to store my treasures--135 new cars for only $35.00. Can't even pay the annual registration fee on one car in Pennsylvania for that.
What a ride!
