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.

Wow! The table will look terrific! Love the white China. I bought a set years ago too, I use it everyday and you can mix and match so much more with white!
Rhoda, you did good! White dishes cannot be beat…I use mine intermingled with several other sets.
The table and chairs were a fantastic find….I like big tables for desks.
We were in Madison Friday and Saturday and I found several good things there…some at a antique-flea market and some at shoppes……so much fun…..
Glad you stopped by….Betty
I just love the dishes…I am sure you’ll put them to good use. I know I use mine all the time..I change the napkins with the holiday/season. They make such a pretty table….
You sure do very well @ your yard sales…..they’re more like treasure hunts !!!
WOW! You still have garage sales in your area! How wonderful! I see one or two in ours but nothing as fun as yours!

I love the china, and the table is perfect, too.
I would have had a tough time passing up that blue toile chair!

OOhhh I love your finds this weekend! You sure do have some really good yard sales in your area! Your hubby’s office will look terrific after you’re done in there. Can’t wait to see the finsihed pics!

The prices you are seeing are so great. Reading your blog is making me really want to get out there and see what’s around this area.

See last week I could have used the patio table & chairs, this week I would have bought that round table (ya know I wanted one for my dining room). Love the white china you got and the table works perfectly. You didn’t even have to search long for that!

I LOVE THOSE DISHES!! They’re perfect for entertaining casually or formally. Great great find.
I want to come yard saleing with you!
You are so right that garage sales are better in the south! I went garage-saling in Marietta on a Saturday just after I moved there and I filled my car by 8:30 AM and had to go home. I’ve never seen anything like it. Wish I still lived there. You are a lucky girl!!!
You have a real knack for finding the sales! Wish I lived where there were treasures like that.
I had one of those fold up vintage rockers. A friend of my sons gave it to me and I had it for years. Not very sturdy but pretty. I gave it to my DD and she still has it!
I always enjoy looking at your yardsale photos! You really did hit the jackpot with this sale!
I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with the office. I’m sure it will be beautiful.
Wow! You certainly are able to see the treasure in the ordinary. You have that eye. Thanks for sharing, Rhoda.
Terrific table — I knew it would be sooner rather than later. You have such a good eye. And nice dishes! I have that set of Pfalzgraf — I think it is called Filigree. At first I also thought those bowls are a bit small – but now that I have them I use them often.
Oh what fun! Can’t believe I have missed out on your blog until now! I didn’t go yard saling on Saturday so this was my fix… 🙂
Thank you for being a sweetheart. You helped me realize be me and go with my style!
It’s so much fun to go shopping with you! You really do find good deals. Maybe one of these days I’ll get out of bed early on a sat. and go to a yard sale. Thanks!
Rhoda, Your pulled me out of lurkdome! I have been viewing your blog and I love your all your postings but I enjoy going yardsaling with you each week! It’s so much fun seeing what is out there and what treasures you purchase. I knew you would find the perfect table for your husband.
Have a great week and I can’t wait to see what next Saturday brings! Mary
