Yard Sales at 95 Degrees

I am joining in the fun at Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures party. I love when Mondays roll around because I get to see all of the great finds!

You know you are a yardsale junkie when you will roll out of bed early on a Saturday morning and brave Mobile humidity and near 100 degree temps just to find treasures! The sales this Saturday did not let me down! My nephew Jacob went with me. At our very first stop I found this footed pink glass bowl for...wait for it.....$1.00! It looks great in my kitchen.

I've already put it to good use:

This was probably my favorite find of the day. This came from an estate sale at a sweet mid-century modern home:

We are about to re-decorate our master bedroom and needed a mirror for a small reading area that I'd like to do. This mirror was priced at $10.00. I asked if she could do any better on it and she said yes--$8.00. SOLD! I was so excited! I've priced mirrors at Hobby Lobby and even with their great 50% off sales it still would have been around $80.00 or so. It has beautiful detailing and is so heavy!

Found these great marble topped plant stands for $3.00. On one of the tables the marble has come unglued and needs to be repaired but since I have such a handy hubby this will not be a problem!

Finally, we ran into Hobby Lobby (can you tell I love me a H. L. ) and I found these iron candleholders for $6.00 each. It's hard to tell in the picture but the oval sections in the middle are mirrors. They are gorgeous and so heavy! They were originally over $30.00! They are also headed for the master bedroom.

We had a wonderful day! I found so many good deals and managed to find some items for Ebay too. God is so good! When we started the day I told Jacob that I would like to find a mirror and find one I did. It was like God said "Here Jackie, this one is for you!"

Head over to Southern Hospitality and join the party!

That's a beautiful bowl. It looks like depression glass, which I collect. Have you researched it?
