We started in Cordova Bay/Broadmead (this was one of three), then looped around to Oak Bay (another three) and finally Fairfield (two more, plus a huge multi-family, block-long sale that we hadn't seen advertised -- we just noticed it, driving by).
In the end, we had a trunkful of stuff including an IKEA lamp for kiddo ($1 -- sells for $8.99 new), three sets of Kids K'Nex (for an upcoming birthday gift), a bagful of satin and cotton scraps (FREE!!), a curtain rod for kiddo's room (FREE!) and a few other odds and ends.
Kiddo had fun spending her own cash on whatever she wanted -- a little "Barbie Ballerina" (who practices from 5 am to 7 pm every day, with a break for lunch at 1:00), a small stuffed dog, a pair of walkie talkie headsets, a Simpsons book and a few other things.
After we got home, I pretty much crashed for the afternoon.
