Recent Yard Sale and Thrift Store Finds

I've had pretty good luck lately at yard sales and the thrift store. When we went to Hattiesburg, I found this precious pink butterfly napkin holder at the Salvation Army thrift. It was 55 cents. It is unmarked. It matches my kitchen perfectly!

I found these nice candleholders for $1.55 each. They are very nice and heavy. I haven't decided yet where I will put these. But for $1.55, how could I go wrong?

We drove to the nearby town of Wiggins and stopped in at an old fashioned trading post. I wish I would have had more time to explore in this wonderful store. Row after tightly packed row of every kind of junk imaginable. I found this cute bowl for $2.00. It's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl has a wonderful polka dot type pattern. It also is unmarked.

Saturday was a WONDERFUL yardsale day. I found so many nice things! But prolly my favorite find of the day was this wonderful quilt for $5.00. My heart almost stopped beating. It's my first yardsale quilt purchase.

Now, granted it is not handmade and was probably mass produced but still very charming!

I found these embroidered pillow cases for .50 each. There is some yellowing and a brown spot that I hope to be able to remove with a good OxyClean soak. They are gorgeous and very detailed:

We found a lot of GREAT stuff Saturday! We literally had stuff hanging out the back of the vehicle. I would count that as success!
