Solo yard saling

This Saturday I went to yard sales alone! Micki didn't go with me because she wanted to sleep in. She works in the school cafeteria and after 3 months of not having to wake up at a certain time, she was tired! Poor baby! :) Anyway, I had a good time by myself even though I got lost sidetracked at one point. I ended up in neighborhoods where I wish I had someone with me or at least a Rottweiler! Rough looking neighborhoods! But somehow I managed to find my way back to where I originally started!
When I first started out at 6:45am, the posted yard sales were either not out or there wasn't any 'goodies' to be found. I figured I would go home with nothing and waste my gas, but eventually I started finding some good 'stuff''. I found this salt and pepper set that I believe has some age to it. It's plastic but looks like it's old. Does anyone know?

Great reading for 25 cents each!
Horror movies for Justin and the boys -$1-$2 each.
A 'No Parking' sign for Justin to add to his collection - $3
Barney, Rugrats, Captain Crunch, ceramic panda & frog - 25 cents each. Also found a Pampered Chef pizza stone - 25 cents!
Whisky glasses - 10 cents each
First time I have ever found dresser scarfs that were in good condition -25 cents each. The blue fleece butterfly blanket was 50 cents.
Doilies - 25 cents each (the pink ones were a set)
I've never seen a Golden Wheat bowl with the decorations around the edge - 25 cents
Teacup -10 cents
Hardee's coffee cup -25 cents; Tupperware salad mold - 25 cents
Heart shaped box - 25 cents ; bride -25 cents
Gift boxes - 25 cents each
Table - $5
Now for my best find of the day........drum roll please. For $10, a 1940's vanity with mirror.

and after cleaning and staging......

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm linking up with Debbie at Garage Salen Partay.

Beautiful dresser and mirror, Charlotte. Oh, what a wonderful find. I like the doilies, too. And the salt and pepper are as cute as can be!

Great vanity, and I really love the dresser scarves!

Pam said...

Wow. What great finds. I have never seen a wheat bowl in person either. Looks cute. What are the chances of finder dresser scarfs and a dresser (ok, vanity) the same day!

Mary said...

My jaw nearly hit the floor (okay over statement but you get my point) when I saw the dresser with mirror and the price you paid!! WOW okay WOW again!! I'm loving it.
