As I mentioned in my last post, Saturday was a banner day for yardsales and flea markets. I started off the morning in an upscale neighborhood in a nearby town and came home with these lovelies.
An adorable ceramic roo-ey for my kitchen for $2.
And a beautiful hand-painted wastebasket that I needed for my powder room. I got this for only $1!!
Here she is tucked next to the vanity.
My luck didn't stop there. A local storage facility was having their semi-annual sale and I spotted these gorgeous aubusson pillows in perfect condition in a bag on the ground.
And there was not one, but two!! I put on my p-p-p-poker face and non-chalantly asked the seller how much she wanted for them. Then giggled on the inside when she said, "Well, I can't take less than $3 a piece for them".....
"Oh, okay I guess..." I replied.....................................NOT! I squealed "I'LL TAKE 'EM!!"
Then she told me that the pillows stuffed inside were actually worth more! Insert Jersey fist-pump here.
Lookin' lovely on my dining room arm chairs, don'tcha think??
Hard to tell from the pics, but they look so pretty against the pale yellow walls and window treatments.
Yeah, I'm happy.
Onto the flea market where accent tables were the theme of the day.
Got this one for $5 and Big Daddy looked at me like I had four heads.
Okay, so it needs a little TLC. I just happen to know a few bloggerettes who excel in the art of painting old furniture and I figured it's time I try my hand at it.
This one was in much better shape. An old drum table for $20 that I'm going to use in my sweet sister-in-law's office/living room makeover.
And of course you remember these.
So many of you asked what I was going to do with them. Well, it just so happens that I have a little side business with my BFF and Etsy partner Denise. The two of us went in on these bad boys and we are going to try to re-sell them. It's going to kill me to part with them though.
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving such wonderful comments. I try so hard to respond to each and every one. Having a new baby in the house makes it difficult though, so please forgive me if I don't respond. I do so appreciate the comment love.
Have a wonderful day.
