Yard Sale Finds

There is a little town about ten minutes from my house and every year on the first Saturday in June, there is a town wide yard sale.  My husband and I started out pretty early, leaving our house around 6:30.  We managed to snag some pretty good deals though, so the early hour was worth it.

The first deal of the day (which I don't have a picture of)  was was a 3 piece wicker set that I bought for $30.00.  My mother-in-law has been wanting one for quite a while now.  This one was in good shape and now resides on her front porch.  And most importantly, she absolutely LOVES it. 

I got this pretty bowl for less than $1.00:
And this crystal pitcher for 0.50!
Some vintage coppercraft and frames, that will receive a coat of paint:
This pretty set of bowls set me back a whole dollar for them all!

And these old clothes pegs were FREE!  Couldn't pass that deal up!
I bought this lamp and the shade at two different sales, and realized they could work pretty well together.  I still haven't decided whether to leave the lamp as is, or paint it white.... we'll see, I guess.  I am pretty sure that the lampshade is going to be embellished in some way.  Either with ruffles, or flowers. 
I am planning on making a pretty liner for this basket and using it to store fabric in.
I also picked up this old luggage rack for a few dollars and now I am looking for an old suitcase to sit atop it. Won't it look pretty with the straps replaced with a nice fabric?

I also scored this dresser that is in need of a makeover...

And last but not least, on the way home we happened upon a lonely little yard sale in our own town where I happened to find this lovely little wicker vanity.  I think it's just so pretty as it is. And with the price they had on it... I just couldn't leave it behind.

  1. I'm drooling over all of these finds. Also, if you wouldn't mind, what is the paint color on your walls? I'm dying over it.

  2. Ooo you must have a lucky yard sale gene! These are wonderful! Isn't it amazing what some people don't want?! And thank you for your sweet comment on my desk and chair. :)
