Oh. My! It was another fun-fun yardsale day on Saturday. I hit the road about 7:15 a.m. & only went to 5 sales, but found some wonderful stuff. I’ll start again with the things I saw, but passed up, so you can drool along with me. If I had a bundle of money to spend, I’d buy more & share with all my friends, cause I’m sure someone would want these things. The first pic is at one house, 2 old rockers for $75 each. I think that’s probably a good price for something like that.
Same sale, some iron planters for $10 each.
More concrete & wooden planters. You can see the prices on these if you enlarge the pic. Several of you have asked about me taking pics at the yardsales & the reactions of the homeowners. Most of them don’t say anything, they are sometimes too busy with other people to pay attention. I do tell people if they ask that I have a blog & I’m sharing with my readers all about my yardsale adventures. They don’t usually say anything at all & I just snap away!
This oak table & chairs was marked at $200, which was probably quite good, as I think this set is older & solid oak.
All these pillows were $1.00 each.
Antique china & you can see the price on this set.
Wine table was $10.
Plates, silver & glassware, very reasonable. 3 blue/white plates for $8….not bad.
Lamps & a cute oval wicker coffee table.
I just about cried over this blue toile chair for $45. I just couldn’t justify buying it, although I sure wanted to! It would have looked SO good with my French vanity in the bedroom, but I just bought that stool which really fits nicely. I’m quite sure that this price was a steal. The lady at this sale used to be an antiques dealer. Waahhhh, I’m still bummed over that one!
This little chest was already sold, so I didn’t see the price, but the white chair was $18.
Here they are at home on the counter.
See the pretty detailing and the scalloped edging? I think I’m really going to enjoy them, even if the bowls are smaller. And all the pieces were there.
I came back to my own neighborhood & went to one last sale & this really pretty vintage lamp was $5.00, so I couldn’t pass it up either. It’s got one of those big ole’ drum shades which I’ll probably replace with something more current, but I love the base. It’s crystal & antique brass on a marble base. Don’t know where it’s going yet.
And one more little item I picked up, the blue toile tea towel for $1.00. Isn’t it sweet?
Here’s the 5 chairs that came with it. Anyone need any chairs? These are going up for sale. I’ll probably list them on my Craigslist this week. They do need some repair work, 2 or 3 are wobbly but are very cute chairs. I’ll sell all 5 of them for $25. Isn’t this table pretty?! I was so excited to find this & get it home.
And just in case you think every room in my house is picture perfect…think again. Here’s hubby’s office, a work in progress. The table will sit here against the window. The really great thing is, I already had a desk in here, the one to the right (which was too small for him to spread out on), that will be a great credenza. What are the chances of me finding a table to match this old desk? I can hardly believe how well it goes with the desk & is very similar tone & blends perfectly.
Check it out! I bought this desk in Atlanta at a neat antiques market that is no longer open several years ago. I still love this desk, it’s very neo-classical. And the table fits it perfectly. That old chair was the one I did have with my vanity. So the plan is to get a small TV in here, so hubby can work & watch his news shows & have a large desk space to spread out on. My DH works at home. And we can shut the door & block out the mess. I’ll probably look for a comfortable chair to put in here too, since he’s wireless & can move around the house. That way my den will stay neater.
