Yard Sale Treasures

Hit the yard sales again this morning. Micki and I started at a church first. This church yard sale "officially" starts the yard sale seaon here. They won't open the doors until exactly 7:00 which is a real bummer. They have collapsible bags to shop with. Most people headed for the clothes (yuk!) but I always go to the opposite side before anyone else does. I found a picture for my laundry room...

a mirror.....

and then I found the cans! I collect tin cans but only if they look like an original product; not the cutesy ones. I even found a Sucrets metal tin.

By this time, my shopping bag was full and I was carrying a few things in my arm. I found this crocheted basket, mix-match salt and pepper shakers, and a silverplated spoon.

A yellow polka-dotted Glasbake casserole..
 And then I hit the motherload!! I almost dropped everything I had when I saw this........

Who in their right mind would sell this at a yard sale for $4!!!! A bread box!!  WooHoo!!
And I only spent $9 for everything!!
Next yard sale, I found three beer glasses..

and this bowl that looks like depression glass, but I don't think it is.

Didn't do too good the rest of the morning, but I did find this painted picture that I thought was pretty.

And this rock and roll border. Wish there had been more. Oh well, there's always next week!

Hi, Charlotte: What a lovely blog you have! Wonderful family, too.

You know they always say you can tell how a man will treat his wife by how he treats his mother!

Thanks for the welcome and stopping by my blog.
