It's Monday and I want to welcome all of you who are hopping over from Rhoda's!
You will find that I am a bit of a novice at this game...
Yes. It's true. I am a Yard Sale newbie. *blush* A Garage Sale virgin. An Estate Sale rube.
I am learning so bear with me! Thanks to Rhoda's inspiration and Sue's inspired finds and insistent "You need to try it!" I ventured forth. Okay, so Sue did most of my wheeling and dealing and I DO have much to learn but I wanted to share with you a few of these first finds...
Is this not gorgeous? It was marked $7 and the man took $5. Later his wife shared that she had originally marked it $4 but a friend told her she saw one in an antique store for $25. I think I did okay. What do you think? *smile* I LOVE turkeys. And yes, I know I am odd. *grin* See that sweet little covered tureen? $3. I wish I had 12 of 'em but I adore this one. I will find lots of tablescape uses for this darlin' piece but for now, it just sits and looks pretty. I like that! And how about this precious mortar and pestle? Made of olive wood, it was $1. The sellers folks brought it home from a vacation overseas and it was never used. I have already used it several times for garlic and grinding sea salt. That's worth a buck right?
Red transferware and so pretty. It was also $1.
Couldn't pass it up!
I have several more goodies to share with you including an old bicycle that Sue found...but that will wait until next time.
Remember, I am new at this so starting off slow!
Oh but I think that the Yard Sale bug bit little 'ol me me. Uh huh. It's venom is swirling through my system and causing all manner of havoc. I know there is but one remedy and that is to get out and find another sale!
So, until next time...
Love and Hugs,
