So, I got the yardsale mojo going at least one more weekend and discovered that one of my favorite neighborhoods, Eagle Point, was having their annual Fall sale. Oh, it’s usually a pretty good one and I was not disappointed. People may think I’m just the biggest cheapskate, but really now, who can blame me for shopping like this? When you shop like this for years and find the deals, it’s hard to go back to shopping like regular folks. I don’t ever want to be regular again, I’m having too much fun this way. These pretty pink slip on Bandolino shoes were $2 and just like new. I have a few skirts that these will work with. I will disinfect them before wearing, but really I have no pride in wearing used shoes, as long as they look this good. 🙂 Another creamware piece to add to the collection, this sweet little covered dish was $1. This is an old ashtray (do they even make these anymore?) and I just love the colors and it’s heavy old Italian pottery. Pretty bird too. For $1, I figured this would be good to sit a plant on. And besides, you know how much I love this color. One more bit of ‘Bama for hubby’s office, this metal tray is too cute. It’s pretty full now, so I have to stop bringing more home. $2 This darling little wood easel was 10 cents. I’ll probably spray it black and use it on a shelf somewhere. Perfect for showcasing a seashell or a small framed print. When I spotted this old worn tiny hammer, I knew it would be perfect for storing in the sideboard for those small projects that come up. Don’t have to drag the big hammer up from the garage. 25 cents Always on the lookout to add to my workout clothes stash, this Danskin workout top was $1 and in perfect condition. Score! This sweet and summery lime green straw purse with shells and baubles was marked $2 and I asked if she’d take less, so I got it for $1. Not sure she was happy about it though. Oh well, that’s part of yardsales, the bargaining. Ditto on the lime green, love it. And a pretty and finely detailed white blouse from Coldwater Creek was $2, also in perfect condition. This aqua blue Nora Roberts book will be added to a bookshelf. I got it for the color, but it just might be good, Rivers End, for $1. So, that’s my haul for the week. I did find one more treasure that I’m passing on to my sister (she’ll pay me back). They have been working on updating their lighting too and this fixture will be perfect in one of the bedrooms or somewhere else. It was too pretty to pass up at $20. A real bargain and the thing weighs a TON.
Oh, and guess where I’ll be early on Monday morning?? Jury duty! Wonder if I’ll get picked? I sort of hope so, maybe it will be exciting. 🙂 I love lawyer-ly stuff and courtroom books. I got picked once at Atlanta Federal court (the only time I’ve ever served) and it was a drug trial with a female defendant. We convicted her. I’ll keep you posted.
How about YOU? Did you get out and about this weekend and find any treasures. You know how it works. Remember our guidelines for Mr. Linky parties:

- Please add a link back to THIS post, so that all your readers can find the party and join in or at least read about all the fun that everyone else had, or I’ll have to delete those too.
- If you come back & your link is deleted, it’s because your link was incorrect (and I couldn’t identify it) OR you didn’t link back to this party. Please try again!

i CANNOT BELIEVE your deals Rhoda!!!!!! so amazing. I want that hammer. so perfectly worn. great finds!!! (i’m SO ok with used shoes/ clotehs too! haha)
I buy 90 % of my clothing second hand. Most of the time the items are new or barely used. I am with you Rhoda, I may be cheap but it’s hard to go back to the retail sector when there are such great finds to be had at a fraction of the price!
