Saturday was a beautiful spring day, perfect for yardsaling, so I hopped out of bed and hit a few sales. One of the first stops was this farmhouse on a country road near our subdivion. It wasn’t an advertised sale, but I saw the sign and decided to stop. Check out this pretty barn and the cow cutouts to the left, very idyllic setting.
They had lots of older things and some pretty pieces of pottery and china, but I only got one thing from them, which is down below.
Lots of quilts and linen things, but I’m not so much into that. Some of you would probably have loved it.
I did buy this set of Hull pottery, $5 for all. I know it’s highly collectible and I’ll end up selling it on Ebay. It’s in great condition. She said she knew it was old and collectible, but didn’t know much else about it. In fact, I just checked Ebay and it looks like these 3 pieces are valued at least at $150, if not more. So, on Ebay it will go! I have had a few windfalls like this over the years of yardsaling. It’s not really my style, so I will pass them on. This day was a great day for finding clothes and jewelry and a few collectible pieces which I’ll pass on and sell. I had a great time finding all these clothes. Everything except the dress was $1.00 each. You can’t beat that for adding to the wardrobe….cheap, cheap!
Cute South Beach T-shirt. I love these colorful T-s and this makes my third one similar. They go with so many things.
Old Navy cotton gauzy blouse, perfect for summer.
Relativity linen blouse with black embroider.
Long to the ankle linen dress with a botanical pattern. It’s very comfortable & I’ll wear this with flip-flops, of course! It’s by Marc & Ware, Made in USA, which I’ve never heard of, but seems very well made. Very pale pink background, this was $2.
Gap chinos and Gap jeans cropped pants. I can always use these, again perfect fit.
Ann Taylor loft summer camisole. Again, everything but the dress was $1.00!! Wooo-hoooo! Everything’s going in the wash and will be ready to wear this week. This pretty little vintage dresser box was sold by a lady in her 60’s who said that it was her grandmother’s and 100 years old. Why she was selling her family things, I have no idea. It looks to be vintage milk glass, with hand-painting on the edges which has worn off. It measures 4″ x 3″. I can’t find out much about it on Ebay, so I’ll sell it to anyone who emails me first for $10, plus shipping, which is not much more than I paid for it. EDITED: SOLD
Close-up of the cross-stitching. I’m not going to officially start my shop up again, but when I see things here and there that I think ya’ll might be interested in, I’ll snag them & pass them on. Jewelry was everywhere! Got these 2 necklaces for 50 cents each. I love jewelry and this cures my jewelry fix. Definitely don’t need to buy new when I can find such good stuff out there. I have plenty of earrings that will go with these.
These were $2 for each necklace. Shell on the left and the right one is real turquoise. I love them both! And nope, won’t be selling the jewelry.
Scored 2 pairs of sunglasses (that’s another thing I like). The bottom (sort of leopard/tortoise look) ones were $3, look brand new and the old vintage RayBan Wayfarers (remember those from the 80’s?!) were $5. I’m not crazy about the blue, but they will do and I do like RayBans for blocking out the sun. Can’t beat the price, so I’ll live with the blue. In fact, I just checked on Ebay & these vintage blue ones sold for between $40 and $80…I think I’m really happy now! People do not realize what they have sometimes. She said her husband had given them to her back in the 80’s and she hardly ever wore them.
This nice large piece of coral was $2. I’ve been on the lookout for a great coral specimen & this was the weekend for it. Right now it will sit on my foyer table.
And last, this pretty hand-painted tile for 50 cents with a sweet Bible verse, which will go in my office nook on a shelf. Good reminder! It was painted by an artist in New Bern, NC, according to the back.
Well, my goodness. You had quite a successful day. Every single thing is fantastic. Have fun.

Hi Rhoda 🙂
Great finds! As a little girl, I used to have a quilt on my bed like the one with the bonnet girls on it.
I hope no one has wanted to snatch up that sampler because I would love to have it. Please let me know if it’s still available 🙂
Great finds! What a deal the Hull pottery was too. You’ve been a busy girl lately!
Thanks for sharing the photos of the decorating job you helped with. I’m going to use that picture hanging tip.
