Yardsale Friday and Saturday

In our neck of the woods we have what they call National Pike Days, three days of yardsale galore all along historical Rt. 40! I got to go on Friday and Saturday and of course I was in heaven, most of the sales had pretty cheap prices oh, there were some that wanted store prices but they didn’t sell very well, I think the highest I paid for an item was $5.00. That’s what I paid for this Coca Cola crate, I bought it to plant some flowers in it, down the road a bit was a man selling flowers and he was a big help in showing me what plants grew in shade only. I can’t wait to see it all grown in!
Isn’t it pretty on my table on the back porch?
Also found this Burpee watering can for a $1.00
So cute with the other ones!
I couldn’t pass up this wrought iron shelf with hooks for .75 yes, I know so cheap! At another sale I found these two faux (brand new) plants for .50 a piece then I added the watering can which was a yardsale find too a few years ago, and the little shovel from the hooks!
Look what’s blooming, we planted it about two years ago, a friend gave it to us and this year it bloomed!

I bought more but it’s getting late so I’ll show you in my next post!
I’m joining these great parties:
Thrifty Treasures @ Southern Hospitality
Sunday Showcase Party @ Under the Table and Dreaming
Metamorphosis Monday @ Between Naps on the Porch
Cozy Home Party @ Cozy Home Scenes
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday @ Coastal Charm
Thanks for stopping by! BTW I love your comments too!

Wow Rondell...great finds! Love the Coca Cola crate and how you've used it as a planter. Great idea. Wish we had National Pike Days here too. So jealous :-S

I would love to go to that garage sale. I've heard about it, & it sounds like a wonderful experience. You found some awesome things, & I can't believe the prices.

Betty@SouthernGrace said...

Excited to find your blog. I love seeing what others buy at yard sales & love posting mine too. Hope you'll follow me too.

I'm so glad I came across your site! A few years ago I was out for a walk with my kids when, in someone's garbage along the road, were two of those crates with 7UP on them! A teenage kid from the house was just there then so I, looking like a complete fool!, asked if I could take them! He thought I was completely nuts, shrugged and said that was fine! They have been sitting in the shed after that first year of planting and just a few days ago I thought about them again, trying to decide what to plant in them, and where they would look good! You have inspired me to haul them out and fill them!
