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!

Better late than never. I just did a mad dash through the entries and they are great. Can’t wait to go back when I can take my time.

I missed the party. Oh well. Next time maybe. I do love your table. The details are gorgeous. I agree with buying other peoples history. It works for me so I can enjoy the “pretties” of the past.
Good ones! I love this post! And I look forward to a thifty sale in our future. Mine is late, but better than never?
Come and see me ya’ll!

Rhoda, I found something and I took a photo and posted it!!! Thanks for hosting this party! Now I am inspired to go find a yard sale or go to a thrift store (now I do go to thrift stores from time to time… I just do not like to go with a 10 yo in tow. She was fun when she was younger, but not right now…LOL!)
I bet you are in Gadsden working your way up the highway in the Worlds Longest Yard Sale! Can’t wait to see photos of what you see and bring back.

I added a post about all the fun Disney items I’ve been picking up for our upcoming trip.

Well Rho, I had no idea you were thrifty blogging today! LOL
I’ll have to come back and browse when I have time.
I just saw your post about your newspaper article with you showing your garage sales techniques! LOL
I love watching you or anyone else, in pictures. 🙂
Congrats, the article was really wonderful.
I’m gonna try to get a post up on this early next week–in hopes I find some really awesome new stuff this weekend!! If not, I’ve got plenty of fabulous junk in my house to post about.
What a great post, too! So excited to go visit everyone!! Thanks Rhoda!
That was some party that you had yesterday. It was the first time I’ve participated in one of these and it was a blast. So fun getting around to visit several new bloggers. Thanks for sending so many of us around to visit eachother. I wonder if other folks site trackers were high. Mine recorded my second highest visitor count ever. Hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

I love your pretty table and your other pieces. Antiques are very special.
What fun! Sure wish I could play along, but I just can’t right now. Too much going on and my computer time is so limited.
I must apologize. I’ve been a bad blog friend. My days just have flown by and I can’t seem to keep all the “balls in the air”. But I’m trying. That’s what counts, right?

Rhoda, thanks for your kind comments on my blog and THANK YOU for hosting the party! I can’t wait to see what you will be painting green!
I just started my blog today, so I hope I can figure out what to do here!
I don’t know you— but I missed the coolest blog party on the block!!! DARN IT!!! Do it again soon!
This was fun. I took my picture right away, but hadn’t gotten to posting until today. Thanks for doing this. I had fun checking out the finds.
