Yard Sale Treasures

I went out this weekend with a list of yard sales to hit, but as usual I went around the loop in our subdivision first. Almost every weekend there are unadvertised yard sales around here. I am so glad I have started that habit!

Since we have been putting a sewing a crafting room together I have made a little wish list for items to finish off the space. The very first yard sale I went to had something I have been hoping I would have the good fortune to find. I found a beautiful iron dress form! I was almost afraid to ask the price, but I did it anyway. The husband said $20. I knew it was worth it, but with things being how they are at home I wasn't sure I should get it. Well I got even more brave and asked the wife if they would take $15. She said yes, but I think the husband was mad about it. Oh well, I guess he can be ticked at me because I took it home. So here it is!

Here she is all dressed up in one of my aprons!

I was so excited! I had looked dress forms up online and they were anywhere from $100 on up for ones similar to this one. I think I made out pretty well! Now I have something beautiful to hang my aprons and such on when take my images for my Etsy shop. Double score!

Head on over to Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality to see what treasures everyone else is giddy about this week!

Until next time,


  1. (I stopped by from Thrifty Treasure at Southern Hospitality.)

    I adore your form! The lady who made our wedding cake had a similar one on her front porch with really wide ribbon tied around the waist... think Mrs. Cleaver. Simply adorable!! Thank you for sharing.

  2. What a great find, especially for a crafter like yourself. I love yard sales.


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