I am linking up with Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for "Today's Thrifty Treasures". Head on over and have a look to see what other treasures are being showcased. There are some incredible finds!
Saturday dawned, dark and gloomy. Weather forecast predicted early morning showers, I took the chance and headed out early to hunt for yard sales. First sale I stopped at had interesting "antiques" that were a bit down on their luck, with prices befitting heirlooms. I did find these two metal urns, (you know how my heart races when I see urns!) I also scored some branches or sticks, too hard to photograph.
The seller had a wrought iron wine rack about five feet tall, (I have been wanting a standing wine rack for long, long time!) I set a price in my head and when her price was W-A-Y above mine and she stated that she was "PRETTY FIRM" I let it go.
Another time, another sale....
Located a "johnny-come-lately" sale, after setting up after 8:00 am. Fairly rare here as the temps are in the high 80's at 6:00 am and steadily rise up to 100's by 10:30 am. However the threat of rain did not stop these people and I am thrilled it didn't.
Found these.... Silver plated serving pieces. Will come in handy for the holidays, the cake server needs a tiny bit of polish, but for $3.00 and a bit of elbow grease, I think they are well worth it.
The Reluctant Teenager and I love movies. We really do and for six bucks for both Indiana Jones series and the complete series of Firefly, I couldn't pass these up.
Next sale I found these green glass candle holders. I am a suckah for anything green so of course I was happy to pay $3.00 for them to add to my collection.
I also found these beaded finials. $1.00. A bit disappointed there weren't more, I can make these work in one of the rooms.
I reigned myself in while shopping since I am weeding out my over abundance of collected treasures at home. Can't bring more in just because I am getting rid of things. That's how I got to this point in the first place! :)
The sky turned an amazing shade of gray, providing a backdrop for the lightening. I decided to head inside to enjoy the weather as the skies opened up pouring rain down on the desert.
Enjoy the holiday.....
Ta Ta For Now.
