This post is way overdue - I acquired most of these things several yard sales ago - AND I am fashionably (or not) late for Leigh's party over at Tales From Bloggeritaville (Hi Leigh!!). Oh well, as they say, better late than never.
Scored a couple of cookbooks for a couple of dollars each. Not bad. They looked like they were never used. Maybe the previous owners are like me and only use books for decoration. Ha! No, I have big plans for these - especially the slow-cooker one, as I have a newfound love for my crockpot. Does anyone else have phases like this??
I've been getting lots of candles lately - brand new - even Yankee, for one dollar!!! Why do people get rid of these?? I love candles!
Love this coffee urn. Someone was selling this in a moving sale. It's an old silver electric coffee percolator. She gave it to me for $2 because it is missing the cord. I figure I can find me one of these somewhere! If not, it looks good just sitting out on my buffet, but I'm not gonna give up. Anyone out there have any ideas???
My youngest daughter Amy has been tagging along recently on my treasure hunts. She loves finding bargains (looks like Dad, but has Mom's DNA). She has been making out like a bandit. It would take all day to post her yardsale finds, but you can just use your imagination here - beach balls, barbies, junk jewelry, board games - you get the picture. But these I thought were worth showing. This tea cart was $2 and well worth it - the coffee pot even makes a noise when you "pour". How cute is that?
This vintage white wicker baby carraige was $5 and a perfect place to store the two dolls I scored for fifty cents each! They even had the tags still on them!!
Amy's room is done in white wicker furniture, so the baby carraige looks right at home.
Well these next two have to be my favorite finds. I was thrilled to find a new men's 100% cashmere scarf for $1 and double-dog thrilled when I saw a women's sage colored cashmere pashmina right next to it! Also $1.
Last, I found this Lia Sophia necklace and quickly scooped it up for $5. As Gloria would say (Happy To Be), I did my little happy dance over this one!!!
So that's it for me. Now I'm gonna look at all the other great finds over at Leigh's party. Hey, don't forget to go check it out!
