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!

Rhoda, way to go! You found some good stuff this weekend. I know what you mean sometimes you have the mojo and other times it just doesn’t happen. I saw some great shoes at GW recently and they were really cute and a bright green suede, they fit me and were really classy, and I wanted to buy them cause they reminded me of you, only problem was I couldn’t walk in them. I am foot challenged I guess! 🙂 You always find the cutest shoes. Thanks for hosting this party, I look forward to doing it again next year. Marla
I’d love to join the party October 1st. I’m having a giveaway next week for a cute bag. Stop by if you’d like a chance to win.
New to your blog- so I just jumped in and joined the all the other gals. Thanks for sharing and hosting SH.

Awesome finds! What a nice way to wrap this meme up! Thank you for having us all!
You always find such great deals!! Thank you for hosting such a fun party!
I would love for you to come over to my post and see if you might have a suggestion for my light switch that needs some help- Have no idea how to fix the patch job!
Toni @ The Tattered Cottage says
You found some great treasures. LOVE the chandy and what a great deal you got on it! Love the creamware and that purse is just my style 🙂 Thank You for hosting such a fun weekly event. I have had so much fun participating and seeing everyone’s weekly treasures!
Hi. I’ve been lurking around for a while and I thought it was time to leave a comment. I love your blog and all your thrifty finds and decorating ideas – never thought laundry rooms could be so pretty. Thanks for your post about blogging for beginners. It was really useful information and I think that Windows Live Writer will save my sanity.
I love great workout gear- but HATE spending money on it! Danskin for a buck, can’t beat that! And the pink shoes are so cute. Happy Monday.
Wow, great finds. I’m going to miss this on Mondays. Let’s do it again next season.
Rhonda, If you sister decides that she doesn’t want the chandlier; please let me know. This chandlier is exactly what I am looking for. Great post today.
My-my-my such treasures! I am wanting one of those creamware bowlies with a lid, they are hard to come by here.
Hi Rhoda! I got a cute pair of shoes this week too and I love that sweet little covered dish. Now, about that Crimson Tide…we’re Utah Ute fans in this house (my husband got his Masters there) and if you remember the Sugar Bowl in January….sorry, couldn’t resist 🙂
Fabulous! I really like that bird plate!
I’ve only participated in a couple of the thrifty finds post, but I’ve been reading them and enjoying seeing what everyone else finds. I’m going to miss them.
I finally remembered abt Monday over here Rhoda! I always forget but glad I got to join in today!
How do you manage to find all these cute clothes – i can never find anything like that!
Laura @ the shore house says
I had a decent thrifty weekend, too — everything I could stuff in a bag for $3! Woo hoo! 🙂 I’m a little late to your game, but you know how much I love to see your finds. I scored an easel this weekend, too — I was thinking I’d pop a postcard on it, but I love your idea of a seashell…so very shorehouse chic!
Cindy~My Romantic Home says
Rhoda! I love jury duty too! I sometimes feel like I’m the only one that wants to get picked!
You’ve inspired me with your green and black…I’m redoing my daughter’s room and she’s agreed to the colors! I’ll be painting it Behr’s Grass Cloth…I hope you consider this a compliment! I just love your office and laundry room!
You got some great things for $11.35
Hi Rhoda! I thought I’d join in, since the season is wrapping up–especially up here in the Northeast! THanks for hosting, as usual! Love all your finds!
