Weekend Yard Sale Finds!

A neighborhood in the village next to ours had a neighborhood wide yard sale this weekend!

The whole fam got up and out of the house at 8:00 Saturday morning. Yes, the whole family! I didn't even have to do the guilt trip thing or anything!

So, I think I made out like a bandit at house #1. Thank goodness I was early, cause they had some great stuff!

I nearly passed out when I saw this clock! It was in it's original box, still wrapped in bubble wrap and from Home Interiors (it's one of those home party type business things and it's pretty pricey). $10 people!!!! $10!!!! I have been coveting these clocks everytime I see them, I just could. not. believe. my. eye!!!!

These little angels were just too cute to leave behind, and for $3 for the set, why not?

Josie found this pretty little music box for $5. I couldn't tell her no. It's so pretty!

I also bought a pretty multi-colored rhinestone bracelet for Josie. It was from Lia Sophia (another home based party business). I got it for $2.

I also got 2 large black wrought iron lamp-style candle holders with metal mesh shades for my deck. $3 for the pair!!!! And these things are the size of a floor lamp! Too cute, I forgot to take pics of them, darn!

Last, but not least, I found these guys at house #2

This white wood piece will soon be black and have hooks on it and live it's life as a coat rack. I'll be sure to take after pics. It was only $1! The little window mirror will be re-done somehow too. It was $5. The metal piece was $2, I like it just the way it is and it will hang in my bathroom.

I think that even hubby had a great time. It may have something to do with the new-to-him fishing poles he got at house #3!


  1. Hi Dawn, Can't believe the who fandamily got up to go with you! Our sales here in OH start on Thursday, so if we want the good stuff, we can't wait for the weekend. You found some bargains! I like that you will re-purpose that white piece into a rack. Where did you put that cute clock?

  5. Great finds. Really like the clock. I looked at one similiar back a while ago, but did not buy.

  6. Dawn, I can't believe what you got! Garage sales around here are NEVER that good! Never!! That's why I'm so amazed at all you bloggy girls who go thrifting or garage sale hunting and come home with such neat things! I don't know which of your finds is my favorite...I really do like them all!


  7. Wow! Those are some great finds! I am in love with the white board that you will create into a coat rack! And the music box is absolutely precious (I liked everything-those are just my favorites-smile).
