I Hit the Mother Lode!

Yard sales were awesome today!

 This little table was actually a bookoo find--only $15!  Do you have bookoo in your area?  You should check.  It's almost as good as craigslist!



Huge picture with gorgeous frame--$10!  My plan is to remove the print and replace it with cork to make a bulletin board for my office.


Beautiful mirrors!  Top one was $3 and the bottom one was $2.  I'm keeping the top one!


Great step stool to help little ones reach the sink--$2

Another step stool ($3) to help little ones reach the $50 trampoline we got last week!


Lovely old table for $5--needs a little TLC


Hanging candleholders--$2 each--wish you could see the true colors


I've always wanted some of these old spools--$1 each!--keeping these, too


Light globe--50 cents--putting this in the garden with a touch light in it

My favorite color combination is red/black/white.  The large carry on bag was $3 and the smaller red (my favorite color) was $2.  Guess what?  Keeping these, too!

Old metal wagon--$5

Maple bookcase headboard--$10--included the rails and footboard

Mission style coffee table--$15--keeping this to use for removing/storing shoes at the back door

Bike--$15

Wooden ladder--$7--planning to whitewash this and use it in the booth to display quilts

We wound up calling both husbands to bring trucks to transport all our loot--after filling up Liz's car!  We traded vehicles with Darrell and kept going.  This is what the truck looked like as we finally made our way home!

Oh my goodness gracious! I do not go to yard sales, but you make me want to go. I am drooling over those frames. Unbelievable! I bought some of those spools in Texas at an antique sale for a pretty penny!

Those were some magnificent finds Beverly. I love the coffee table, wagon & the candle holders.
I think I might have to keep an eye out for some garage sales now.
