Yard Sale Haul

I don’t usually post on the weekends, but my daughter and I went to a few yard sales this morning.

I know, that explains everything, right?

Well, I haven’t actually been out yard-saling all summer.  ALL. Summer.

And summer is almost over!

So when we had nothing else going on this morning, we raced out the door.

We spent the big bucks – $4 smackers.


Our Yard Sale Haul

Yard Sale Haul

A giant cupcake pan.  That was my daughter’s idea.  She’s been wanting one of these for about four years.  Guess what kind of birthday cake she’s getting this year!

A feed sack, except it’s a salt sack.  As soon as I find myself a sewing machine that works, I’m going to cut it down and make a pillow out of it.

And a vintage glass.  There was only one, but the guy having the sale threw it in for nothing.

Here’s a better look at the glass.  I’m going to be on a mission to find a few more.


Then my daughter got a tropical print maxi dress.  It looks like she should be wearing it in Hawaii.  Unfortunately, I can’t photograph it because it’s in the wash.  She wants to wear it tomorrow.

And my favorite find….

Yard Sale Haul:  Vintage Wooden AcrobatsA pair of vintage wooden acrobats.  They flip over the bar when you turn the knob on the side.

Aren’t they the cutest?  They’re sitting on my desk, because I like to be surrounded by cute junk when I work.  It has to be cute though, or else I’ll trash it in the name of mental clarity.

These acrobats are super-cute.

And all for $4 dollars.  I’d say it was a bargain.


What about you…Do you stop for yard sales?

  1. Once in a blue moon. This year we got a bicycle in need of minor repairs, for $10.

  2. Love that glass! I don’t seem to have the time to at this season, but when I do…whatch out!!!

  3. Definitely a bargain!! :) I haven’t been all summer either! Crazy! There’s a big town-wide one next month I usually try to hit! Love that glass! You definitely need more! :)

  4. Oh, yes they were a bargain!!! Love that salt bag.

  5. I love your acrobats! Perfect desk inspiration. We were planning on garage saleing this morning too, but ended up staying for the 2nd movie at the drive in and didn’t quite make it out of bed in time. :)
