My Favorite Yardsale / Thrifty Finds

How can I choose just one favorite yardsale find? I simply can't! I heart yardsales! Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a favorite yardsale/thriftstore find party! I have a couple I'd like to share.

I found this great chair and the end of a yard-sale-ing day. It was a chore to get it in the car but so worth it! It is perfectly worn in all the right places. I can't remember if I paid $10 or $15 for it.
Imagine my delight when I discovered these drapes at my favorite thrift store. They were the inspiration for the entire room. My heart started pounding when I found these! They were in perfect condition. The panels were $16.96 which was a little pricey, but much easier to swallow when I found that they were Croscill. I bought the matching ascot valances on ebay.

I found this table at a yardsale for $10 dollars. The glass was missing so my sweet husband helped me get it replaced. I have enjoyed the table for YEARS since! It even survived the country blue and mauve era! It's now in our bedroom in the little seating area. What you can't really tell from the picture is that it has a beautiful wrought iron detail under the glass.

Ok, I could go on forever but this is the last one, I promise! I also found this beautiful buffet at my favorite thrift. It has the prettiest legs and is the most perfect moss green color. My favorite part about this piece is the pencil markings that it has on the inside of the doors. How sweet! I keep my cookbooks in the little compartments on each end. Here is a close-up:

Rhoda, thanks for allowing me to participate in the party! I love your blog and read it often!

Love the buffet!! Did it come moss green or did you have to paint? And so smart of you to "accessorize" your thrifty curtains on eBay. Looks custom!

Debbie said...
