Hey! I am sure you have been on pins and needles since last Saturday waiting to see what was in that teaser picture I posted from my yard sale shopping adventures. Ok, maybe not, but maybe you were a little curious!
Here’s the teaser picture I posted last week on facebook:
It started just like a normal Saturday. I thought I was just going to stop by my parking lot yard sale, get groceries, and head home to work on projects the rest of the day. Turns out I came out of my house and it took me 30 minutes to leave my driveway! My neighbor across the street was having a HUGE yard sale and had some great stuff and some great prices. I know I missed out some awesome stuff – wish I would have known and I would have been up and out the door at 7 am to shop.
Here’s what I bought at her sale:
The glass pitcher was $1.50 and the Christmas ornaments were $1.50 a box.
And not pictured (I was already playing around with it on my fall mantel) was a white candleholder you can see in the facebook picture above. New from Target – paid $1.00.
I got the mercury glass Christmas tree for $2.00. (I can’t resist mercury glass. Or milk glass. Or Mason jars. Or lanterns…)
She had a box with these 4 lanterns in it and when I asked how much, she said the whole box for $2.00. That is 50¢ each for the lanterns! I snatched it up quick! These are large metal lanterns and even though they might need a spruce up with some shiny black spray paint, 50¢ was a STEAL! Wish I had steps outside and I would put them lining the steps for fall and Christmas. I still may find a way to use them on my porch.
This whole box of mason jars was $3.00. I will probably buy lids and use the smaller ones for canning some apple butter and the larger ones for decorating.
So after depositing 3 boxes on my porch, I finally got in my car to leave my driveway. I then stopped at another yard sale in the neighborhood across the street from mine.
It was a rustic/cabin type of house and they had horses, etc. So they had some really nice country décor! That is where I scored the wrought iron wagon wheel planter you saw in my fall front porch post. I thought $10 was a good deal!
Not pictured are 2 king size quilt sets (with shams) that I purchased (you can see them in the first picture). I picked these up for my brother who is an avid hunter/fisher/outdoorsman and he really liked them! $10 each for a king size quilt in great condition was a steal too!
I stopped by my parking lot yard sale and only left with this canister for $2.00.
So my quick yard sale morning turned into a yard sale extravaganza with tons of fun finds! Yard sales were everywhere – I stopped at a couple more, but didn’t find anything.
I am looking forward to a big thrifting/yard sale shopping weekend tomorrow! I hope if you are local you can try to join me on my “I love thrifting” fall edition trip. You can find all the details here or just meet us at Goodwill in Covington at 9 am tomorrow.
If you aren’t local, but go thrift shopping or yard saling this weekend, share your finds over on my facebook page. I would love to see them!
