One thing about going to yard sales on a regular basis, you sometimes see familiar faces. We stopped at a yard sale and it immediately brought me back to one year ago when the same woman had another yard sale. Last year I didn’t buy anything from her, but her neighbor had some snowman dishes that were just perfect for my friend “S” and her newly started collection. This year, I bought these at her yardsale.
The glass refrigerator containers were hard to pass up for $4. The little handled gravy/sauce container was too pretty to leave behind. She said it was from the 40’s. I can’t identify the pattern. Does anyone know about this type of dish?
One of my favorite shops was having a big sale, part of which included a yard sale of items. I found these lovelies there.
The blue flower was actually a ponytail holder. I think I can work it into a necklace.
Another sale had these brass sconces. I thought the design on them was interesting and for yard sale prices I can paint them should I decide to do so and feel no pain. The Halloween spreaders are for my daughter who loves everything Halloween.
A sale advertised as “huge” turned out to be not so huge. I did find a Wilton pumpkin cake pan for my Halloween lovin’ daughter and a heart picture/note holder.
A local high school’s band was having a huge yard sale and their sale really was huge. I managed to find some treasures there as well. The best part was everything was half-off by the time I stopped. It was a super hot day and we had our Scotties along so I had to do a quick scan and shop since they were quite ready to head home to the air-conditioning.
The vintage metal picnic basket has seen better days, but was too cute to pass up. The two cheese domes will one day be transformed into something special courtesy of the wonderful ideas I have seen in blogland. The amber swan was so sweet and priced just right to come home with me. When I saw the box of German vocabulary words, it reminded me I need to brush up on my German. Maybe I will choose a few cards each day to help me practice.
I found some interesting vintage jewelry and another lidded Atlas canning jar all for just $4 at a yard sale just down the street. I’m particularly fond of the earrings with the crown design. I hope I can find a cute way to repurpose them.
