Yard Sale-ing Saturday

Yesterday on my way to the grocery store, I passed a few signs advertising yard sales. It was such a beautiful day, there seemed to be many, many yard sales, but I decided to stop at only two. Wow. I somehow picked wisely...I found several WONDERFUL goodies at rock bottom prices!

I found a beautiful silver pitcher. I picked it up and was surprised by it's weight -- I knew it was good silver. I set it back down and looked at the other items on the table (some wonderful things, I might add!), afraid to ask the price of the pitcher. Finally, when I could no longer resist, I asked in my best nonchalant voice 'what is the price of the pitcher?' I was stunned when she held up five fingers and said 'Five dollars'. I thought sure she was going to say fifty dollars, but really was just five dollars. I'll take it! I brought it home and this morning, polished it up. It's beautiful! Quite the bargain I think!

At the same yard sale, I found an adorable birdhouse that I thought would be perfect in the large window of the garden room. Again, it was only five dollars!

I stopped at another yard sale just sure that I'd already found all the bargains to be had for the day. Nope. Last weekend I was looking at some adorable folding trays on eBay. I considered placing a bid, but chose not to do so. I'm so glad I didn't! I found the sweetest folding tray at the yard sale! It was made in England and was in perfect condition. In fact, it hadn't even been used - the tag was still on it and she had the box it came in. It was marked ten dollars, but when I asked her if she'd take less, she lowered the price to just $8.00. Certainly an irresistible price as far as I was concerned!

All in all, it was a great yard sale Saturday!
