Unique items at Neighborhood Yard sale Saturday

I will be participating in the neighborhood yard sale on Saturday, September 8th only. I will be selling mostly collectible Barbies (I have about 100 all together) in new condition all in their original boxes. I have them priced quite reasonably and you can see some of the pictures of them here, Charity's Barbies for sale. So be sure to stop by my house at 1322 Epworth Ave. to check them out. It's not too early to be thinking about gift ideas and these dolls would make excellent presents!
