You can see by the clock that I got a pretty early start yardsaling on Saturday. There was a big neighborhood sale near me, so I was pretty excited. I decided to take my camera with me this time just to show you all the good stuff that is out there. I have to always used retraint, as all of the goodies would not fit in my house.
Here’s the neighborhood sale sign. They do one in the spring & fall & I’m always excited to see this sign out! Here we go….
I’m snapping pics as I go from house to house. This rocker had a price sticker of $25. Not bad.
These pretty white (they are not blue, as they appear..I think it’s the haze this a.m.) pieces were $50 each.
I didn’t catch the price on this cute little desk & chair.
Here’s the buffet to match. Very classic piece.
This house had some great stuff! I loved this wicker set. It was already sold (of course, I have lots of wicker myself, so I don’t need more, but I love to look at it!). It sold for $40 for this set. Just needs a new coat of paint.
These tables were $5.00 each. I had fun walking around here looking at everything. Little did I know that around the next turn, I’d find my treasure of the day…you’ll see it later. Keep reading.
This was a new console table, but really cute (wood & wicker). It was marked $25. A lady had already bought it. That clock on top was really pretty too, a map clock, for I think $5. I didn’t need it though.
This piece was really cute. I thought about all my shabby chic friends. It was $25 & was an old sewing machine bottom with a nice piece of marble on top. Would look great in the right spot. Of course, I don’t have room for this either. See all the stuff I pass up every week??
I did find a Talbot’s dress for $2.00. Pretty blue linen & will be perfect for work.
Now I have 3 pears. Found the one in the middle for $1.00 at the sale. It’s cracked at the top, but I think can be glued back & repaired pretty easily. And, I’m pretty good with touching up paint too, so it should be fine. I got the one on the left at TJ Maxx, the one on the right was given to me by an online friend (who I’ve met in real life too, Sally!). And now, I have a third as of today. I got the brainstorm that all 3 of these would look pretty neat on the mantel & I think they do!
This cute little vintagey oil painting was $1.00. I’m not sure where to put it, but I sure do like it.
Found another leopard pillow for 50 cents. I’ll leave this one in the den. This is my hubby’s recliner that he lives in.
I looked down…and there it was! This beautiful chandelier….for $20. Now remember, I just painted the ugly brass one that’s in my breakfast area. If I had known, I would have waited to paint it, but that’s the beauty of yardsaling…you just never know WHEN you’ll run across that big find. So, this little beauty will be going above my breakfast table. I have only found a few very nice chandeliers in the past..usually all I see is the shiny brass crap that I’m trying to get rid of.
It’s a little dusty, but once I clean it up, it will be gorgeous. What do you think of the beads?? I may leave them since they will look good with my green kitchen or I could take them off. Not sure about that. I was SO excited to find this. After I got it home, I realized that it has been painted by someone. It totally fooled me when I bought it, as I could not tell at all. I think it used to be brass too, but that’s OK, since they did a really excellent job painting it. I love the shape of it & this is just about what I would have picked for that table anyway. It came with some faux leather shades that I will probably use. We’ll see. I will definitely do a post after I get this in place, so stay tuned. I know I can’t wait too long, I’m excited to get it up.

That was so much fun and I’m properly jealous now!! I would have been popping that stuff in my car faster than you can say, “Ka-ching”. What a fun time you must have each week. Sure wish I lived nearby!!
LOVE IT! I can’t wait to see it in your kitchen! I hope you don’t mind I added you to my favorites! Just lovely!
What a great find! Can’t wait to see the new chandelier hanging. The pears look really nice on the mantle~perfect colors for that spot. I would have snatched up the rose hook rug under the plates.
WOW! I live in CA. and we just don’t have yardsales like you do! They were so many beautiful things, I am looking for a whicker set just like the one that was sold, and just the dishes alone were great.
Thank-you for sharing
Okay, that’s it. I’ve resisted long enough. I didn’t want to add yet one more blog to my list of favorites but you’ve gone too far now. I’ve got to add you. Hope that’s okay.
I love the chandelier AND the beads. And I could have filled the back of a pickup truck with just about everything you spotted on your yardsale bonanza. Fantastic, I tell you. Just fantastic.
You do find the best stuff when you go yard saling. That wicker was wonderful, as was all the furniture. The dishes you pictured are the same pattern that my grandmother had – and now my mom has. It makes me sad to think of someone selling it. Hopefully they found a good home.
Thanks for taking us with you.
This was the funnest post in the history of blog posts! 🙂
I just loved yardsaling with you through this. We should do it more often. 😉 Great finds!
