McG is away this weekend having some "guy" time with his brother, brother-in-law and cousin, so I took advantage of this weekend time alone to do something I love. I love to travel the yard-sale circuit on Saturday mornings and I lucked out today as there were quite a few of sales today, including one that went on for ten blocks! I set out at 8 am because the early bird gets the worm as they say, and I wanted to get there while there was still some good stuff!!
Here are the treasures I found today - these lovely bookends for $2! They are about 5 inches tall and in great condition.
A clock for $3, the mirror was $4 and the wicket tray and the little sign were a buck! I haven't gotten this lucky in a long time and was anxious to get home and find a place for my treasures.
The clock got cleaned up and found a home on the buffet in the dining room, along with the bookends and some green glass that I have been collecting from the local Value Village. It is the year for green you know! These little treasures were not more than $1 each and I've been finding them over the past few weeks.
The best deal of the day I have left for last. Remember this planter I showed you last week - it had bamboo stakes in the middle that I am hoping my Morning Glories will grow up???
Well the bamboo stakes have been replaced by a large obelisk that I found at a yard sale today for $5.00!!!
That sucker is huge and weighs about 20 pounds...it got a quick spray of oil rubbed bronze spray paint and then off it went to its new home...
I think it was a fabulous day for yard sales - I got some great stuff and I didn't even spend $20 for the whole lot!!
Have you found any treasures lately? I'd love to hear about them!
