Mike and I started out early on Saturday morning and called it quits around noon as we had a birthday celebration for my oldest daughter, Tanesia coming up later in the day. We found a lot of cute items that were way overpriced - some of the folks apparently didn't get the memo about how to price yard sale items and thought they were stocking Macy's or something - and a lot of just plain junk that they should have been paying people to take with them...but along with all that, some really great items abounded.
Here's my stash:
This white porcelain coffee service was just too cute to pass up at $8.
I ran to this booth when I saw that they had some Dept 56....two retired North Pole Village pieces for $20....perfect condition.
A rooster.... Can't believe that I am really liking the roosters these days....when I was young, one chased me at my Granny's and I've hated the little booger's since.....I don't think this one can outrun me. He was just $3.
A Wilton cake pan in a Ghost shape....thinking ahead to my Halloween party, this will really come in handy. $3.
These were not 'true' yard sale items, but they have two of my favorite things, Fall/Halloween and Hatboxes...so I was drawn across the field and past several booths, straight to them. The lady was selling this large size for $50...these are really big and stand in at about 30" stacked....I talked her down to $35. She had some really cute ones that could be displayed every day, but I had to have these. Now that I have the set to see the mechanics, I will be making some myself of other designs. Left with a big Cheshire smile on my face.
We also bought a boxing set for the GB's for $2, and you can see that in the top picture. We actually live only a few miles from the yard sale route, and we lucked up with traffic as it was ll coming from the opposite direction. All in all I was very pleased with my haul, not to mention the quality time with hubby.
All the best,
