So I gave it a month or so....
Friday night I decided I was going to go a town close to us that was having a town yard sale... Plus there was an estate sale and I love estate sales!!! You always find the best stuff at those!!!
So after planning my route I headed out Saturday morning... The first couple I stopped by was a total bust... But when I made it to the estate sale I got some really great deals on especially 1 item that was my find of the day and I have been wanting one for forever!!! And I can't believe I found it at such a great price... I also purchased a 4 slice toaster for $2... haven't tried it yet..hope it works...
|My awesome TexasWare Bowl!!!! The price.... $.50 cents... and at the antique stores they sale for $30 dollars!!!|
|It did look like someone had sat it on a burner.. but it was still in awesome shape!|
|I also found this little crock to put more kitchen utensils in for $1buck! Same day I found another one of these at a yard sale for $12 dollars.|
After the estate sale my list of yard sales went out the window because they were literally everywhere... The news paper didn't have half of them and I am sure I missed some of them just because there was so many.... I went to atleast 25 in under an hour.... maybe 30...
My 2nd favorite find came from the basement of a small museum the town has. The have a small yard sale a few times a year.. Not of the museum stuff but of other misc. items....
|This is my new rooster lamp! I think he is so hansom! and I really like him.. He is sitting on my 60's credenza that I keep forgetting to blog about oops.. coming soon I promise! But he was only $3 bucks!|
I also found these wonderful finds at other misc yardsales.....
|Didn't have a lid but for $1 who cares. I have a lid that I can use and it is less for me to find shelf space for!|
|Love this Fireking bowl.. Its another fave of the day.. and It was $1 buck !|
|Got this Pyrex bowl at the same yardsale as the Fireking. Just $1 and an awesome find I love!|
|Same yardsale as above bowls. Don't really drink coffee not sure what I will do with it. Tried to talk myself out of buying it... Just couldn't leave the CorningWare Friendship Coffee pot for $2 bucks!|
|Old fashion but It is Pampered Chef Apple peeler.. Hope it works good.. $1|
Then I headed to Fairmont because there was a church sale... and church sales mean old people..and old stuff... right? and I don't mean it rudely I just mean if I am looking for 1960's or 1070's stuff I need older people... and good prices... sadly the church yard sale wasn't as good as I was hoping but I did find a couple of things... and I missed another church yard sale my mom told me about after I left town :( ....
Then I went to a park that was supposed to have some yard sales but there was some kids baseball games there so... I didn't see any yard sales but there was a ton of people there so I guess I could have looked harder... But there was 2 out the same road and I found my other two fave finds of the day out there at another great price!
|These sets sale for around $15 dollars at the antique stores. I would never pay that much for one. But I did pay $5 when I found this full set!|
|Also got this dispenser or juice container.. not sure... and it was only $.50 cents! Love it!|
So before noon I was a little bit of everywhere... Places I never go but actually found my way back out of...lol... In the first town they were also having a canoe
I am so excited for the entire summer of yard sales...if I can find the money and time to do it!
