So, are you ready to go yardsaling with me again?
There weren’t any neighborhood sales near me this weekend, but there were plenty of sales around. I headed out fairly early and hit a couple in Brook Highland, a really nice neighborhood in my neck of the woods. This Duncan Phyfe table, chairs and buffet (which wasn’t out there) was marked at $400. I thought that was a great deal! What newly married person wouldn’t like to start off with something this classic in their diningroom. I have a thing for those harp designs anyway.
An obviously vintage old rocker definitely needs some work, but was $20, so maybe a project for someone to tackle.
This pretty oil painting was $20, nicely framed too.
This would be perfect for a kid’s room, at $75.
Dresser was the same price.
And these sturdy pink bookcases were a good price at $40 each. All they need is a coat of paint…I can see these in black, can’t you?!
This little iron birdbath was $5. I’ll probably put it over on the baker’s rack. I’m painting that rack and teacart aqua, gotta pick up some spray paint this week!
I just love him!
Still collecting things for the black/white room redo, I found these really nice chunky wood lamps, $7 for the pair. They need a good cleaning and then I’ve got some fun plans for them. I’m thinking about putting a black damask stencil on them, gotta play around with that. And I may add some black shades or maybe even some funky black/white fabric shades (damask or zebra?!), since I can cover my own very easily. We’ll see how inspired I get. I’m letting this room just come together as it will. I’ve got a few things put together already that I’ll show you soon and of course, I’m trying to do it without breaking the bank!
With my love of all things black/white, I can hardly pass up clothes either. This cute skirt was $2 and the brand name, Molly & Maxx (which I’ve never heard of). It fits perfectly and I’m really digging the elastic waist these days. 🙂 And last, you all should know about my obsession with bunnies by now. He was TOO adorable to pass up at $5 AND he passed the really special bunny test. Only really, really special bunnies can come home with me these days. This little guy stands 11″ high. It’s amazing, I have hit several yardsales this summer who are obviously bunny collectors too, so I’m definitely not the only one out there.

As usual, I want to go shopping with you!! Great finds! 🙂
Duncan Phyfe is one of my all time favorite makers of furniture. My mother had a buffet I was lucky enough to get. And years back I found a table at the Goodwill, for $25.00. It needs a bit of leg work, but the table top is in excellent condition.
Wonderful yard sales. I would love to have someone near me that like to do these, alas I do not.
Great finds. I am crazy about your bunny! So sweet!

now I would like to come saling with you, in real life
love all of your finds, next week I’m may take some pics on my rounds, I don’t know about you but there sure are a heap of things out there that ya wouldn’t want too lol!
I am looking for lamp bases just like that, though of course I won’t be painting mine black so they woulda been perfect for the cottage and at $7 a no brainer, that’s why I love thriting heehee, a great little secret
love the bird feeder, I’m looking out for one for the cottage garden
see ya, off on the school run and a real flying thrift store visit!!

Your garden pieces are just perfect. Especially that bunny welcome sign. I swear, if I find a super special bunny, I’m sending it to you. 🙂
Wow you found a lot of great stuff. You always seem to find great clothing items too that has to be fun.
Rhoda I love going shopping with you! I wish I could actually buy something. lol! That Duncan Phyfe set was a great price. I love your bunny. It would pass my very special bunny test too.
Oh Rhoda…Can I tell you that I’m nearly in tears looking at this post. I have been on the hunt for a DP table, chairs and buffet all summer. I already have a DP china cabinet.
At $400 I would have snapped that baby up so fast your head would be spinning. You would have seen me running down the street squeeeeeeeeeling with chairs balanced on my head! Yeah. I’m a drama queen like that.
I’ve found several sets but each time something wasn’t quite right. Oh well. I guess it wasn’t meant to be this year. Maybe next year. 🙂
More great finds! I’m hoping this weekend there will be som good sales.
