Todays yard sale finds

My inlaws are here and they like to bargain shop so we all went to the garage sales this morning. There were not any neighborhood sales so we drove all over town and went to 8 different ones.
We saw a lot of junk and a lot of over-priced things.
We did come home with a few treasures.
I got the nice red, white and blue bunting for $1. It is like new and the good kind, sewn together and embroidered - not just with the design stamped on.

I've been looking for a pair of end tables for our bedroom. This pair was marked $20 but while I was looking at them, the seller walked by and said she would take $15. They are worth much for than that. They are solid wood, oak I think, marble on the top, and very heavy.

Inside, they both have a drawer and 2 shelves. I need to clean them up and replace the shelf paper. Now that I have them home, I think they might find a place in our living room instead of our bedroom.

That's all I bought.
My MIL got some placemats, brand new for a nickel each, a Christmas decoration and a few kid clothes.

  1. Fun, fun! I love the thrill of the hunt!

  2. Hi Rhonda,
    What good deals. I did a little thrift shopping this week.

  3. I like the end tables, Rhonda, but I agree that they would look better in the living room rather than a bedroom. Perhaps if you painted them white, they'd look more "bedroomish".

  4. Wow, what a deal on those tables!

  5. Great deal on the tables. And love the bunting too. I love your motto in your banner:) I need to incorporate that motto for my To-Do List :)

  6. Great finds on those tables! super deal!

    Thanks for sharing!


  7. Great buys ! I love a good piece of furniture, for cheap !
