Yard sale blunder

Something really awful happened. I feel really horribel about it even today. Yesterday evening people were putting free stuff out from the big yard sale weekend. My sister and I drive around for something to do to see what poeple put out for free. Well there was this box of stuff out by the road. It had match box cars and playstation games in it. It was right at the road and it had old blankets on the top so I thought it was free. My husband even went to the door and knocked to  ake sure it was free. Noone answered. So we took the box of stuff. Well later in the day, my sister drove by the house again and there was people outside still having a yard sale. I took something that wasnt free by accident. I feel so bad about it. I dont know what to do. I am not a theif. I didnt mean to do it. My sister said that the box looked free and that they should not have had it up against the road like that. I never saw a yard sale set up like that. I am tossing around the thought of taking them back even though it is very embarrassing especially since it is the next day. I am very upset about this. Does anyone have any advice for me??

I'd take it back honey. I'm sure they would appreciate your honesty, would understand it was a mistake. If it wasn't, you'd not be taking it back. It is always best to do the right thing, even if it is hard.
