Yard Sale Treasures

I've been out and about at yard sales the past few weeks, but it's been slim pickings around here. Fortunately I finally had some luck this weekend! I found a lamp for my new sewing and crafting space. I saw it when I pulled up to the sale. I thought some other ladies were going to snatch it up, but I got there first. It set me back a whole $2! I couldn't believe it! I bought another lamp very similar at Home Goods a couple of years ago and unfortunately I paid A LOT more than that. I was super happy with my find! I can't wait to see it when we finish painting the furniture black.

The next sale I went to had a little paper back book I have been on the lookout for since last summer. I was so excited and it only cost 25 cents! Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is pretty good so far, I like the author's writing style.

Well, that was it for me this weekend. I am hoping to find some baskets and accessories for my new sewing space during my next yard sale adventures! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Head on over to Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures. I love seeing what everyone else found during their adventures!

Until next time,


  1. You did great finding that lamp for 2 bucks! I found one last Fall for 2 bucks and you can still find it on the shelf at Target for $30! Hop over and show her off at my thrifty party and also enter my COASTAL GIVEAWAY!


  2. I've been wanting to read that book, too! How fun that you found it. :)

  3. I read that book a couple years's an interesting one! And what a great price!


  4. What great prices on both items! Lovely lamp.

  5. Wow, love the lamp! Sales around here have had slim pickings too. Either that or they are trying to sell everything resale!


Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate your words!
