It was a brisk & beautiful Fall morning on Saturday & I took off around 7:15 a.m. to hit two neighborhood sales near me. Lots of folks were out browsing, just as I was, looking for those bargains. Here’s a few things that I saw along the way, but didn’t buy. A pile of pillows just waiting to go to a new home. I don’t need pillows, so I passed them by, but I thought they were pretty.
This slightly beat up table & chairs had a price tag of $50. Not bad at all if you have nothing to eat on. I tell my friends all the time what great bargains there are out there, but I don’t usually get anyone who wants to get up early & brave the sales with me. They are missing out on some neat things. I’m going to be on the lookout for an old table to use as my hubby’s desk. We have an extra bedroom that is his office & he said he’d like to have a large table in there, instead of a regular desk, so that’s one of the things I’ll be looking for a good deal on. I’ll find it, you can bet on that!
This rocker was already sold. I think it said $5.00 on the pricetag, but that’s really hard to believe. Blue/white pices & side tables. I think these tables were $10 each.
These mirrors were $2.00 each. They are plastic frames, but could probably be painted to look better.
An old vintage lamp. I didn’t get the price on this, but it was a pretty shape.
More old lamps & older things from a nice little lady.
And this pretty wrought iron glass-top table & chairs was $75 from the same lady. That was a steal for this. It was really very pretty detail & would be perfect on a patio. I just don’t need it right now.
Lots of hardback books.
OK, so what did I buy this week, you ask? My hubby had told me if I ran into an espresso maker, he’d like to have one, so today was the day. This Krup’s machine was $5. He loves coffee, so this will add some extra caffiene jolts to his day.
These curly sticks were 50 cents. They were originally from Pier One. I’ll find someplace for them.
This old pitcher was 50 cents also. This little lady said her sister had this vase for about 50 years, so it may have a story. It’s got felt on the bottom, so I can’t tell exactly how old it is. It will go with my ironstone collection.
All these natural items were $1.00. I have some grand plans for Christmas decorating this year, using lots more natural elements in my decor. I will be sure & share all my fun with you as I’m planning this. I see some metallic spray paint in my future.
These 2 candleholders were $4.00 for the pair. They are sort of a pewter look to them & I loved the beaded design. I may do some embellishing on these too for Christmas. The candles smell yummy too.
I can’t ever pass up these armillaries. I just love the shape of them. This little guy was $2.
And you know how much I love black/white things. Another cute top for $1.00.
