First on my list to go to was a place that's ad said (Estate sale Seniors moved to retirement home.) I walk into the place and the right in the front entrance hanging there in all it's swag beauty was this lamp. Everything had a price sticker but the darn lamp! It was the elderly couples Son holding the sale and he seemed very friendly. I kept my eyes on that lamp and muttered to my other half at least 4 times. We need to ask how much that is!!! lol Finally there is not people asking him about this that and everything so then came our chance. "How much is the light?" He looked up rather confused.. like he had never even thought to sell it or he was thinking, who would buy this? He replied: "Uhmmmm a dollar???" I replied: "SURE I'LL TAKE IT" I pretty much ran outta the house to the vehicle!
Vintage jewelery box with flower detail & red satin inside.
Can we ever have enough jewelery boxes?
Starburst pattern butane candles
I loved them instantly as soon as I laid eyes on them. Priced at $5 I left them and went off to another 5 or so sales. Went back with my fingers crossed they were still there. They were and I got them for $3!
This was on a table with a price sticker of 25 cents My mind said: WHAAAAAAAA?! seriously? So I had to grab it, flash the lady the sticker, pay her a Quarter, walk away slowly in case it was a mistake (Well shes not running after me, She's not chasing me down! I guess it was 25 cents after all!) *lol* This bamboo candle thing is about a foot and a half high!
I did some searching here and there and found something quite similar. I am thrilled with the money I saved by garage saling. Although I suppose had I not stumbled upon this bamboo candle today, I still would not own one and who knows if I ever would have in my lifetime or even thought of one for that matter.
Another brass plant stand. I paid $1.00 and put it to use right away in the backyard on the deck. It now holds my pepper plants and oregano!
I also got a large wicker basket with metal hardware for $2. It would be perfect to take to a farmers market or something. I will show you pics of it in my next post because I completely forgot to take one today.
I also purchased some other little things. Like a key chain that says "I love my dog", a lovely big green jar candle that smells scrumptious, and a solar powered plastic dancing flower *lol*. All in all I loved this Sat! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and that you also found something that made you smile and happy.
