Oh, Yard Sales, How do I Love Thee? (2)

Let me count the ways:

1. Trio of amber glass pedestal candle holders
(these are large and will be beautiful on the mantle in Autumn)
2. Triple wick candle.

3. Granite cutting board with tiny feet (a platform to make a coffee station).

4. Vintage Ironstone electric mantle clock (for the guest room)
5. Electric makeup mirror (for Miss A's 16th birthday-hope she doesn't see this post).

6. (I needed a) hand electric mixer,
7. Coffee scoop (our other one was plastic--this is an upgrade), 
8. Jar (for dried cranberries) to match the others in the kitchen,
9. Pyrex liquid measuring cup.

10.- 12. White spray paint (need I say more?),
13. Car wash stuff,
14. Power strip.

15. - 17. Books!

18.- 20. Movies!

21.- 24. Music Books and Sheet music for Miss S.

25.- 26. Ipod (I have been borrowing Miss A's to workout with
--teens have different music tastes than adults)
and "Designer" Tissues for Miss S (of course).

27. (My favorite find) a 2' tall scrolly card, jewelry, mug, ornament holder thingy.
This is going in the cafe', I think.

28. Inside door rack for Miss S' dorm room bath.

(Home Depot Price: $79.98.)

All of these finds came from ONLY 2 yard sales--

Total spent on #1 - #29: $36.00.

Shopping at the Downtown Farmer's Market afterward: $14.00

Breakfast at Greenfield's Bagel Shop after that: $9.00

Date Morning with my beefcake: PRICELESS.

  1. Wow, I love, love, love all your great finds!! And so glad that you had an outing with that wonderful fella!!!

  2. Wow Leslie, You got some really great things...and at a fantastic price! I especially love the amber candle holders and the Hapton Bay table. I haven't been to a garage sale for a few weeks. Looks like I need to get back out there.
    xo, Sherry

  3. Wow...wow...and wow! What a haul! You found some wonderful things and I am shocked you only spent $36!

    I can't wait to see the coffe station...I have been wanting to do one for awahile and I keep getting side tracked;)!



  4. You Rock!! So many great finds, especailly like the scrolly holder thing!! Awesome :)

  5. Oh my gosh what a day!!!!!! I can't believe you not only found all these goodies but what a bargain!!!! Way to go!!!

  6. What an absolutely wonderful day you must have had. Some days are good, some days are not so good. Great finds. xx

  7. What a haul! You got some great stuff, thanks for joining the party.

  8. Holy smokes, Leslie. They have some awesome yard sales around there. Some of those things look new! Good for you! Great finds! Susan

  9. Leslie you are so good!~ Look forward to seeing you next week. Love the amber glass, my favorite!

  10. Boy, you scored big time. So many great things. I love all of them. Everything is so perfect for what you needed. Great job. Hugs, Marty

  11. Wow! You scored in a big way! Don't you just love secondhand treasures?

    Thanks for joining the Ask the Yankee linky party. I would love for you to join in on the fun for all three of my linky parties each week:

    Each party runs for six days, so come on by!

    Hope to see you there!

  12. I miss "doing" yard sales! You found some great stuff! :)

  13. How fun you lucky girl! You have some great finds! I went to 3 garage sales on Saturday and came home with NOTHING... so disappointing... such is the life of a garage sale-ing chick. :)

  14. You did great, Leslie! Love those amber colored candle holders! You're right, they will look fantastic come Fall. Great find on the 3-wick candle that looks brand new in the wrapper!

  15. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's yard sale finds...

    There, I'm better now. Sometimes I have to give myself a little scolding...

    These are great!!! I can't believe that you even found an ipod at a yard sale. Seriously, around here the most high tech thing you can expect is an 8 track player.

    But I keep hoping that it is going to improve. Our GW is basically the same (she says with a sigh.)

  16. Great finds and great prices too! Garage sales have been a bit slow here lately. We usually have more in the spring. But I keep checking just in case ;)

  17. Girl! Where are you shopping? All we have are old people and their castoffs. No good yard sales in my area. I'm coming out your way! Lisa~

  18. Wow! What amazing finds! How did you score an Ipod, even? And it all averaged out to about a dollar and change for each? You are one talented shopper.

  19. Oh, I need to go to garage sales with you! I never find stuff that good. Glad to hear that you had a great day with your man. Those are the best.

  20. Wowzer!! You hit the big time. What great buys for so little!

  21. Wow. You really made out! Love the wicker end table.

  22. Wow Leslie you got some really great deals! I love the clock and the metal thingy you are planning for the cafe!! I so love garage sales!!

    :) Michelle

  23. Yes we must all ask for forgiveness for lusting in our hearts! Ha.. what a great haul, I am very envious for I have to work on weekends and miss all the great yard sales. Just found your blog and look forward to seeing the coffee station.

  24. Wow. Just when I thought I had some good finds from the weekend. My oh my, you did good. I would especially love to find an ipod like that. Mine is so old the battery won't charge. It works fine, connected to a power source. But that makes it tricky for when I want to listen while I go for a jog. You found a boat load of good stuff!

  25. WOW! What a haul! Great finds. I can't believe you found spray paint. Perfect!

  26. Leslie,

    Great finds! Do you rent a big box truck when you go thrifting and yard 'saling'? I especially like the ironstone mantel clock.

    Your Friend,

  27. Fabulicious finds Leslie! I love everything...especially the Hampton Bay table. I would have tripped four times trying to get to that lovely.
    College Diva also has the same over the door rack for her dorm bathroom. Same. exact. one. also purchased at a yard sale for $1.00!

    I also have the same mixer as the one you bought...mine was wedding gift but still! And those amber pedestal candle holders? Uh huh I have the in Red. Uncanny how similar our tastes are.

    Thanks for sharing, I will be showing off a few things I found in the last two weekends later tonight.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  28. You are so right -- yard sales are the best. I have found some amazing finds myself and am looking forward to yard ale season.
    I am impressed by your loot - good job & thanks for sharing!
