There are a few key things you need if you want to attend this yard sale: (1) comfortable shoes; (2) a few cloth shopping bags; (3) time and patience; (4) and no fear of crowds or being stepped on. If you employ all of these, you can be guaranteed to find some wonderful bargains.
Here are mine!
- This soup/chowder tureen for $5! I fell in love with the pretty sea motif..
- This beautiful silver plated candle stand (which I found at the bottom of a box of junk) for 25 cents! I wanted to show you the detail in the piece. Voila! My 1st mosaic photo!.
- These gorgeous and totally groovy glasses for $2..
- A very pretty candy dish for 25 cents. (Found on my way OUT of the building when I "couldn't possibly carry another thing & I've spent enough money!") .
I found 2 more beverage containers like the glass watermelon one I bought last weekend. I bought both. The aqua plastic one came first for 50 cents; then I saw the black glass one for $1. I'm hoping I can use the do-dad from one of those to fix the red one because I still like that one best. .
I bought a few more "new-to-me" perennials for the garden, dropped by for my weekly French pastry fix, and spent a relaxing few hours visiting a friend before heading home in the rain.
A fun Saturday!
I'm joining LINDA at Coastal Charm on Tuesday for her Nifty Thrifty Tuesday! Check out the fun over there.
