Oh my! is all I can say about the 10 mile long yard sale Saturday. Did I find anything? Oh yeah! I was so glad I took my new flip flop tote along to keep it organized in the trunk.
I found a throw pillow to add to the day bed in the spare room. It was like brand new and only $2.00.
I found a couple of insulated tumblers. They look vintage but I don't think they are. I took pictures when I came home. I still need to wash and clean everything up. These were just .50 cents.
I have become obsessed with vintage lamps. This little piece of milk glass caught my eye.
And when I saw it was part of a vintage wood lamp, I just had to have this. I am not sure what year this is from, but I would guess the early 60's based on the lampshade, but really have no clue. I do know I need to get a new shade because this one is pretty stained and had some areas that looked like there had been stickers on them. But it wasn't bad for $1.50 so I snatched it up.
One lady had a box that just had FREE written on it. I took this little box. I never pass up containers because they come in handy for crafts. May put all my buttons in this or my small pre-cut plastic canvas pieces. Not sure yet. But you can't beat free.
I don't know why but this little cup was one of my favorite items of the day. It was just .10 cents and I thought it was precious. I will probably drink chocolate milk from it since chocolate milk always makes me happy.
For $1.00 I had to grab this kitchen towel. I love that it says Hen Party. When I host Thirty-One parties at my house it sounds like a hen party in my kitchen so I thought this was a good towel for me.
There were a lot of books but nothing that really looked great. I do like Judith Arnold so I picked up this one for .50 cents.
I was looking for things to add to my beach bathroom. I found this little candle warmer. It was in perfect condition. I figured she would ask $3 or $4 bucks for it based on her other prices. But she said $1.00 and I grabbed it up.
I collect pill boxes if they go with any of my themes or if it is something that brings back memories. I saw this and just knew he would have to go home with me for the beach room. It was $1.00, but I decided to kick into American Pickers mode and asked if she would take .50 cents and she did so he came home with me. After all, what's a beach room without a pink flamingo...even if he's snoozing.
Another item in another FREE box. I have a shelf for the beach bathroom and thought I could tuck this on it.
This was one of those "I spotted it, I'm buying it" items. I love wicker and to find three seahorses for just $1.00 total was perfect for the beach room.
I love taking my daughter along when I'm looking for vintage pieces in the wild. I only find expensive things that are priced at antique store prices. But she is getting good at spotting vintage a mile away. She found this Glasbake dish and said I HAD to buy it because she loved the shape of it. At just $4.00, I had to agree with her.
Then at the same table, she spotted this Federal mixing bowl for just $2.00. It has some wear and has utensil scratches inside, but I fell in love with it. I have a rack that I'm putting turquoise items on and this will be perfect for it.
But my favorite moment of the day was when we stopped at a church yard sale at the end of the 10 miles on the way back home. We debated about stopping because their sale had been going on since Thursday. But I remembered getting my sister some aqua handled wooden spoons at their sale last year so we stopped. I was so glad we did. That is where I found the tumblers, the pillow and my Grandma mug. But on the last table near the door I spotted two Pyrex coffee pots. I have been wanting some of these and haven't been able to find them. But there were TWO of them just setting there. So I asked her the price and when she said "They are selling them as a set for $3.00 total." I paid for them right that minute before they changed their mind. I am in love.
So would you say I had a good day? OH YEAH!! Then to top it off, I was cleaning out a closet and found a case of what I thought was empty Mason jars. It was actually a dozen jars of the last apple butter we canned that I thought we were out of. I have been so sad that I didn't have any more homemade apple butter since Christmas morning. And now I find 12 jars. I am so happy!
