This weekend reminded me of why I LOVE yard sales!
I get all giddy when I have that list of sales in my hand and the morning is full of possibilities!
First on Friday, I went to an estate sale. You just never know how estate sales are going to be. This one was professionally run and (in my opinion) those can tend to be pricey. This sale had a TON of stuff and they seemed ready to deal. I picked up a trunk that appears to be from someone in the military. My favorite part? It still has paper tags on each handle that talk about rules for putting this on a train!
The woman who lived there was a painter with some gorgeous pieces all stacked up on multiple shelves. I found several that spoke to me and picked all of these up for $10!
Then Saturday morning I had the gift of some time by myself! So with my (ice cold) Starbuck’s and organized list of sales in hand, I was off!
My first stop was a sale in my neighborhood. The folks at this sale were AWESOME. They told me everything they knew about the history of several pieces. I ended up with several things but I am saving those to reveal later. (sneaky huh? maybe there’s a hint in that first picture up there?)
Next stop an estate sale but I came out with nothing.
Lastly another yard sale and I found a couple of good finds there. The best? THIS…
For $8! woot woot! I’m going to recover it and it will most likely become a new head of our dining table. We will eventually be getting a new table and I don’t really want matchy matchy chairs so this would be a good start I think. Do you like it? I just love her. Such pretty lines, curves, and gorgeous back. Oh and I LOVE the price!
So, how did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!
