It’s been raining a lot this week. We’ve had some severe storms blowing through the last couple of days and I was browsing the Saturday yardsales in the paper Friday night about 9 pm, when I spotted the Mt. Laurel ad. My heart skipped a beat. I look for that one every spring and fall, since I’ve always found some great things at their sales. I’ve written about Mt. Laurel several times, so go and take a peek if you’d like to see more about it here. It’s a beautiful quaint community and rain never stops me from hitting this sale. From the looks of the crowd, no one else minded either. I was pretty careful about what I brought home, but I did find a few things.
A nice piece of burlap was free (and only marked 10 cents) because I bought two T-shirts from them. I haven’t unrolled it yet, but it’s probably at least 2 yards. Why didn’t I find this before I did the corner cabinet? Oh well, I’m sure I’ll find something to use it for.
This adorable custom made Roman shade was a great price. I don’t have a place to put it, but bought it anyway since it was a good deal and too cute to leave behind. I’ll probably end up selling this one, so let me know if you are interested and we’ll make a deal. Green polkadot fabric with a pretty fringe trim of red/gold and green. I walked around the house looking for a spot to use it, but there is no where to put it. It’s 36” wide and I didn’t measure the length yet. Email me if you’re interested!
This bronzey ceramic urn was $1. I’ll probably spray this one white to go with all my other white pieces.
Heavy iron white piece was $4.
Cute and comfy looking Gap cropped linen pants were $2.
And these 2 adorable Frenchy T’s were $1 each.
Now last weekend I went out too and found a great deal on this print for $30. The pricetag on the back was from BA Framers and marked $600!! Now, I know no one pays retail for these things, but I’m sure it was at least $150 to $200 originally. I had no idea where I’d put it, but decided to move another yardsale print I had over the bed and put it here. This is a HUGE piece, 50×50” and it’s a map of Versailles, which I’ve visited before in France, so that was pretty neat I thought. I love maps and this is a really cool piece.
It fits right in here in the cottage bedroom.
On Monday, I’ll be leaving for the beach with these ladies and going to Gulf Shores, AL where we’ll be staying here at the beach house. I’ll post something while I’m gone and of course, you’ll see some beach pics when I return!
Don’t forget the giveaway coming on Wednesday. You will NOT want to miss it!
Great finds, Rhoda!
I emailed ya about the shade.
