Yard Sale Weekend

There were 4 different plant sales in the area today. I got lots of lovely shrubs and flowers that I've been looking for. The weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow, so in between pot luck at church and dinner with the international students, I may get a little gardening done.

I also got some treasures at the yard sales.

These 4 adorable side plates at 25 cents each.

Another pretty cup & saucer; this one for $2, but I really liked the birds.

Remember how much I love sparkle and shine? Well, here are 4 napkin rings for 25 cents total.

A pretty little gel candle - brand new, still in it's packaging for 50 cents.

A 1959 Rupert Annual for 25 cents for the girls vintage book collection. (We used to read these together when they were young). And another bird house for the garden for 50 cents.

And I couldn't make up my mind which color sandles I likes best. So, for $2 a pair, I got both.

I had a great cup of coffee and a blueberry scone while plant shopping from Joanne's of Mahone Bay (I'll highlight her shop some blog!). And a delicious b'bequed hot dog at the Girl Guides yard sale.

Sounds like my kind of day. I am missing yard sales, as I haven't been able to go this year because of my health.
You got some great stuff. Love the apple plated and the beaded sandals!
And why aren't you also showing off your plant finds? :-)

Sara said...

Wow, you find some amazing deals! Love those sandals.

Oh, my goodness! I stumbled in here and want to stay all day! I loved the gardening stage 1, phase 2 (I THINK that was the title). It feels like I'm hearing an "echo" of myself at times! Such fun. Good to be here. I'll drop in again soon.

Thanks you guys!! Such nice comments! Yes, those sandals are great, aren't they? And we ate our cookies off the apple plates last night.

I'm not showing off my plant finds just because I bought so many, and I'm too lazy to take the pictures. (I turn into a plant pig when I'm at a sale!) But if you really want, I'll do that too. Now, I just have to remember what I bought and where and the price!!!

You had my kind of day for sure. I love the sandles and everything else too! Have fun planting!

Rebecca said...

I see you've been to life and godliness! That was a pleasant surprise for me! Welcome. I look forward to more visits from/with you!

Mary said...

I would have bought the bird teacup too! I'm addicted to anything with birds.
You found some great bargains!

Adore the sandels! I wouldn't have been able to choose, either.
