While heading back, still pretty darkish, College Diva spots a yard sale sign...."We should stop". That was all the encouragement I needed and I turned around, hoping it wasn't an old sign. No, it wasn't and I picked up a much needed toaster oven, brand new in the box, for College Diva. $5.00! Woot Woot!
Next couple of sales, were misses, however the fourth sale, turned out to have some really nice things. I found these lovelies which I asked the price of.
I have a serious love affair for poinsettias! When I asked for the price, the lady stated that she though another customer was buying the entire box of ornaments for $10.00. If not, then each ornament was .50 a piece.
The other lady purchased several boxes of lights, tree skirt and some other holiday decor. She passed on the box of ornaments. I had done a quick calculation, figuring there had to be atleast 40 or 50 ornaments in this box. I told the lady she had a deal, I would pay $10.00 for the lot.
The box is filled with several types of Santas all Woodland, Nordic and Folk Artsy! I wanted a new theme for a smaller tree I was planning for the family room/office area. These are fabulous!
Love the little pencil Santa!
Stuffed Crescent Santas! Hand Painted! I *heart* them!
There were 64 ornaments in all 31 Santas and 33 glass balls in Green, Red, Ivory and Soft Gold. I am sure I will find many uses for these, maybe I will try my hand at a wreath????
They even came in their own Rubbermaid tote with divided sections. How fabulous is that? That breaks down the ornaments for .15 each and the tote for the remainder .40! Oh, I forgot to mention that the lady also threw in 3 rolls of gold ribbon for free!
This was even cheaper than the 75% sale that Target has on their Holiday items!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
ta ta for now!
