Girls, it’s party time…here’s your chance to share your very favorite yardsale/thriftstore/estate sale find EVER. Even though I could have chosen any NUMBER of wonderful things that I’ve found while yardsaling and thrifting over the last 10 years or so, I think for me it has to be this piecrust table that I shared with y’all earlier this year. It was one of those things that I just stumbled upon out yardsaling that called my name. Even though I really couldn’t afford the $75 that was the asking price at the time, I dug deep and bought it anyway and I’m so glad I did. Since I love older furniture SO much, this piece is a treasure. and even though it didn’t come from my family, it will be part of our family from here on out.
I was not fortunate enough to come from a family (on either side) that had fine, precious antique pieces, but didn’t let that stop me. Buy someone else’s family history! This is one of those pieces that I’ll treasure always.
They just don’t make furniture like this anymore….well, they do, but certainly not for $75!
One of my very faithful blog readers, Kathy in the Boston area, who doesn’t have a blog wanted to play along too, so I’m sharing a pic from her house. She found this beautiful hutch for $75 at a sale and treasures it too. Great score, Kathy! For those of you who pay attention to wall colors, Kathy’s color is Ben Moore Beach Glass, a very popular light blue.
One of my real life friends in Georgia, Judy, sent me these 2 pics of HER favorite finds. The tole tray was purchased from The Bunnie’s Bungalow (sweet Debra) and now graces the wall of Judy’s kitchen. Not sure how much this beauty was.
And Judy found this $75 trunk, now a fabulous coffee table, at an antique store in Georgia.
Another of my very sweet readers, Sheila in Florida, sent me these pics of her very favorite china pattern, Hunting Scene, made by Coalport and Wedgewood. She got an 8 place setting closeout set at an antique store for $200. That sounds like a great deal to me.
Please! No one else send me anymore pics now. I can’t go back and keep editing this post all day. We’ll all just have to enjoy all the links. I’m SO excited to see all these links already and SO happy that so many of you wanted to play. Yipppeeeee!
Now, how about you?! I can’t wait to go and visit all of YOU to see what your favorite find of all time will be! Just add your link to Mr. Linky and we’ll all be by to visit. The party officially starts on Thursday a.m., but we’ll all need time to add links. All you need to do is go to your specific post that you want to link about your yardsale find (not JUST your blog URL)….right click & highlight that posts’s URL, then come here and add your blog name AND paste that URL right there on Mr. Linky. And don’t forget to post a link from your party post back to THIS post so that everyone can come and join the party!
That’s it…Let the party begin!
Thankful Thursday Participants
