be still my heart. about 7-8 miles of yard sales and 2 beautiful days. this weekend was the national pike festival in my area. i haven't been yard saling for a long time. i took friday morning and hit almost every one. then hubby and i went out again saturday morning and there were even more yard sales set up. found a few neat things and good buys. here's my loot.
*a very nice quality artificial winter wreath which i will tweak when the time comes ($4)
*a like new heavy duty tote which will be used for toting craft supplies ($3)
*a handled divided glass serving platter ($2)
*a lidded glass cracker jar ($2)
*6 etched glasses ($1)
*glass doorknobs (i have a few ideas) ($3)
*a yellow fiesta style bowl for my sister-in-law ($1)
*dollhouse furniture for my daughter (50 cents)
*silverplate utensils (50 cents)
*a mesh organizer tray (50 cents)
*old christmas ornaments ($3)
*a glass decanter ($1)
*4 oneida salad plates ($7)
i love these whimsical plates. they will look great mixed with my black and white. the pattern is called "chefs to go".
*small vase ($1)
*a brand new decorative outdoor flag ($5)
*a starter spider plant ($1)
*a large clay flower pot ($1)
...for a grand total of $36.50. when you consider that the brand new large stillinthesealedbag flag that i got for $5 normally sells for $20, i did pretty well.
the elderly woman i bought this from called it a "cracker jar". it's extremely heavy. here it is cleaned and filled with pretzels for now. it has endless possibilities...cookies or crackers, soaps in the bathroom, etc....
i love having pretty serving platters. this will be great filled with different kinds of pickles and olives.
love these etched glasses. aren't they pretty all cleaned up?
a great weekend!
