The yard sale season has started!!!! WOO HOO!!! Finally!!! Micki and I left the house this morning at 6:45 expecting to not find anything. Look what we found!!! It was 11:45 before we got back home!! Two neighborhood yard sales!! Good junk and even better prices!! This is what the back of my car looked like when I stopped at Micki's house. That's a queen size headboard ($5) on top of two tables. It's Micki's, not mine.
This view is from the inside of the car looking towards the back. That's the headboard I was talking about.
Just look at all of this good stuff!! Table ($3), apples & stand ($2), zebra pocketbook lamp (50 cents), "Cow Parade" salt & pepper set ($2), two dog figurines ($1 apiece), funky lamp ($1), square plate (50 cents), three Bakeware mugs ($1), figurine ($1) silver plated pitcher ($1), Turquoise flower vase ($1), teabag holder (50 cents), "egg"cup (50 cents), blue bowl with lid (50 cents) and a cast iron 'boot' doorstop ($1)!

At one yard sale a woman had about ten large bags of fabric. If I had been a quilter, I would have been in heaven! I only wanted a piece of black fabric to use for a backdrop for my pictures. Found it for 10 cents. As I walked by a bag, I noticed two pieces of pre-quilted fabric that only would require a binding around the edge. I picked them up for my mother. I started looking through the bags then. The lady brought a grocery bag and told me to fill it for $2. I didn't fill it, I stuffed it!!
Look at all of this!! The red piece and purple flowered piece in front are the pre-quilted pieces that started this. Two bags of crib size batting... the pink has poodles, shoes, checks... the bundle in back (green & yellow) had 4 yards of the yellow that had palm trees, giraffes and monkeys!! Perfect for a baby quilt. The neon colors on the right (Mother sort of snurled her nose at these) but I like them! And look at the black piece with the ladies and 15 cents pattern print!! Love it!!
A Tupperware oval microwave bowl ($1). Never used!! It has two separate racks to allow two different types of food to be steamed at the same time. Has anyone ever seen one of these?
Punch Bowl ($2) !!!
Bride and Groom hat (50 cents apiece). Normally I wouldn't have even looked at these, but I bought them for my son and his fiance, Holly. 21 more days!!
HP PSC 1510 All-in-One printer, scanner & copier ($5). Even had the plug and software which normally people fail to include.
And last but not least, I had to bring something back for Justin! Two halloween pumpkins for the yard (50 cents apiece).
Therapy session is now over! I feel so much better! Can't wait for next week!!
