Yard Sale Finds

Yard sales were not as abundant this week as in the past few weeks, but it was better than last week. We really had to hunt for yard sales last week. My computer froze the other day and I had to reload everything! It is now clean and runs a little faster, but what a pain! I am linking to Debbie's Garage Sale Partay! Come join the fun!
Speaking of last week's sales, I did find a "Painted Horse" for $2! WooHoo!

This week's finds....
This table was grabbed as quickly as I could for $1!!! I planned to paint, but Justin said he would get me a clear coat and I would be surprised at how good it will look. We'll see.

Check out this great bed tray for $2!

A float for the pool ..$1... It has a small tear, but it works great!

A picnic basket for $2! Or as Yogi would say.. a pick-i-nic basket!
Another gift box for $1. The top look like a pillow..
Beaded tassels for $1 each.. I plan to use one of them with the table after it's finished.

A candlestick lamp ..$1. Got to find a shade..
Autobiographies from Goldie Hawn, Michael J. Fox and Miley Cyrus. The Drew Carey books looks like a lot of laughs. 50 cents to $1 each.
I've got plenty to read this summer! Have you ever watched the movie 'What ever happened to Baby Jane"? I have and that's why I bought the book.
The Pilates book looks interesting. It has all of the exercises with photos. The Church Social cookbook will NOT leave my house. Great recipes!
Brer' Rabbit...25 cents. I found the movie 'Song of the South' at a Christmas show and paid $40 for the DVD!! That's how bad I wanted it. It's "politically incorrect" according to experts. I say every kid should watch it!
And then I found this material for $1. It's a least a yard and would make beautiful valances.

And don't forget the mirror for $1.....

Hope everyone's Saturday was as productive.

wooo! I love your finds!! The fabric is adorable!! and I love the table! Great books, I love the Shopaholic series! I never knew Miley Cyrus had an autobiography, but I guess I am not surprised. LOL

that's a lot of finds! i love the shopaholic series, but the first one (confessions of a shopaholic) was my fave, and laugh out loud funny. maybe you could be on the lookout for that one, too. i actually orderd the trilogy off ebay b/c i wanted to have them all and it was cheaper than buying them in a bookstore. this was before my thrifting days!

How to pick my favorite?? I love the horse, the table of course and the fabric. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Wow I think you hit the jackpot in yard sales this week. Love that table and can't wait to see how it looks. The fabric is also gorgeous. I can never get enough books and you got some good one's. My favorite is the picnic basket. Good finds!

Donna said...

Great finds! i like the bed tray.

Ginger said...

You have some great finds! I love the mirror! And that table has me quite envious! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Mary said...

What a haul! You know, I bet that round table for $1 will be beautiful once it's oiled and varnished. I really like the bed tray you got, too and the chenille bedspread it's sitting on top of. Great candlestic lamp, tassels, books and fabric,too.
I drive a Buick, too ;) Cute header picture.

Olive Cooper said...

Hi Charlotte! That fabric is very pretty. Your finds were great. I am in S.C. part time and am from there. Thanks for visiting me and commenting. ♣olive

p.s. your header is too cute

Troy said...

Wow, great finds!

I suppose as long as you can find deals like that there will never be any reason to dumpster dive. Good thing, with a law like that.

I wonder why they would have such a law, that forces stuff to the landfill. The environmentalists must be banging their heads on the wall in frustration.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I was lucky to find your yardsalesandcrochet.blogspot.com site. Aw, this was a really qualitative post. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
