Because they are too great to wait until Monday’s Thrifty Treasures


It is that time again!  Time to share all your wonderful yard sale and thrift store finds!  Make sure you head over to see Rhoda at Southern Hospitality to join in the party!

I stopped at 3 yard sales Friday morning – all right beside each other and I spent $19 on some really great things! Here is what I got:

Beautiful (LIKE NEW) Pottery Barn Kids twin size quilt, sham and decorative flower-shaped pillow - $5.00. I will use this to swap out Sofia’s bedding in the Spring. This was still in the PBK package!

yardsale 002 yardsale 004

Set of 4 Melamine plates and matching cups 2 w/ lemons, 2 w/ limes - $2.00

Pink wooden frame with metal bunny and carrot - $1.00

yardsale 008 yardsale 009

2 large metal standing vases / containers - $2.00 for both

large collage-type frame with mat (this color frames matches all in my bedroom / bathroom - $3.00

yardsale 014 yardsale 015

2 huge baskets, very sturdy $5.00 for both

and you can’t tell very well in the picture but a got Sofia an unopened jar full of those fizzing bath ice cream things - .50

and not pictured 2 Spanish dictionaries that I gave to a friend at work - .50

yardsale 017yardsale 016

I would say not bad! The price of the picture frame was $25.99 originally!

Saturday I went to several sales, but not very much luck. Almost everything I bought came from 2 of the same sales I went to yesterday.  They had put out more stuff and I am glad that I stopped!  I spent $13.75 today and got:

Set of 3 tall metal outdoors candle holders - $4

Pewter or metal bunny and carrot tray - $4 for both

yardsale 001 yardsale 003

3 black 5 x 7 frames - .75

Set of 6 white napkins with bluebirds - $1

2 large material remnants - $2

New unopened package of pineapple soaps from Hallmark - $1

Baby Lulu dress and shoes - $1 (these I will give to a friend at work)

The bedding is ADORABLE!!! and I am in love with the vases, I am so on the hunt for something like that! I usually only hit thrift stores, but I need to get my bum up early in the morning and go yard selling, that's where the deals are!

Laura said...

I'm loving that bedding! I'm up right now and it's 7:18 central time. Do you think that's too late to go yard saleing? Ha! Nope! I"ve gotta go get Baby Girl's boosters today! Joy, joy!
