Yard Sale finds

Saturday morning started out cloudy and hot! My sister. Pam, and I found a few yard sales and were able to find a few things. Camping cookware $10 for Justin....

 Lady & the Tramp figurine 50 cents...Apple trinket box $1..including worm..
 Wallace & Gromit DVD..$1.......Bird cage seed catcher thingy...$2...
 Sandra Lee Cocktail Time ..$1
 But my biggest score was at the second yard sale. Four boxes of various yarn for $10. I had no clue just how much was in these boxes, but soon found out when we got home.

 Look at all this yarn!

I did a quick inventory and this is an estimate of what I bought...
  • Worsted weight----39 skeins and 10 balls
  • Chenille -----12 skeins
  • Lion Brand Suede ----18 skeins
  • Lion Brand Landscape ----3 skeins
  • Fisherman's wool --- 3 skeins
  • Lion Brand Wool Ease ----9 skeins
  • Chunky ----6 skeins
  • Red Heart Plush -----4 skeins
  • TLC Baby Amore ---- 4 skeins
  • Red Heart Cupid -----8 skeins
  • Red Heart Soft Baby ----4 skeins
  • Soft -----1 skein
  • Caron Fling ----1 skein
  • Lion Brand Micro Spun----2 skeins
  • Red Heart Luster Sheen ---6 skeins
My grandson, Gavin, said "Now you don't have an excuse to go to Michael's". DAMN!

How good is that yarn stash!!!
When we visited the USA last year I was taken round some amazing yard sales by a very experienced buyer, I never got to see yarn but got some good crochet throws.
Just wish I had bought more yarn whilst I was there......it is such good stuff. Enjoy it looks a treat Heather xx

Oh my goodness! You did find the Mother Lode of yarn! Don't you just love it when this happens from a yard sale? This is like my box of fabric I found at a yard sale. Yes, who cares how much we stash away. Its only getting more and more expensive.

Also, thanks for sharing your covered bridges memory with me on my blog.
