Treasure Hunt

I am participating in Today's Thrifty Treasures,
over at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality.
Don't forget to head over there to see what everyone else found.

I am also bragging about my finds over at Etsy Cottage style Blog
for "Show Off Monday"
After passing up about half a dozen yard sales be cause there wasn't anything but a couple tables with clothes, My daughter & I hit upon a gold mine!
You know the ones, you see them & can't get there fast enough. My heart starts beating fast...yes, I love the hunt!
A huge yard & shed to dive into. Boxes & boxes to go through.
Here are just a tiny bit of what I captured. I haven't cleaned any of it up yet, so please forgive ;)
One of the first things I spied was this darling little table.
I originally bought it to list on eBay...but I've fallen in love!
Not sure where it will go....but somewhere it will!
Don't you love the color? and with the white peeking through :~)
Love the shape of the legs too...$3 can you believe that?!
Another box of goodies (10-50 cents)

These teeny glass Ornaments will find their way to eBay.

A great pair of Shutters ($1)
I even scored a sweet hat for my Sister who collects vintage hats (50 cents) I filled the back of my van up with Treasure....good til next weekend! Among the haul are these 2 enamelware cups (25 cents for both), darling little boots (50 cents)(they will be turned into some kind of holiday decoration), a humongous 1938 Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (50 cents), and aren't those hair clips (she thru them in) to die for ?


  1. What a great sale! I love the vintage hat. :) Good prices. Thanks for the visit!

  2. Oh I love the shutters and the table! I would have to keep the table too!

  3. Some people have all the luck!!
    Great finds. The little ornaments are adorable.

  4. Whoppee! So glad you lucked out. Dry here this summer. Have a beautiful week. TTFN ~ Marydon

  5. Love the shutters! I never seem to get there in time to snag me some of those! Cute little table, too!

  6. You got some cute items. I love the enamel cups. They remind me of my great aunt's kitchen. And your table- too shabby chic! The turquoise color is so reminiscent of furniture from my home state of New Mexico. Thanks for visiting me- hope you'll stop back by again sometime.

    Love the tiny Christmas Ornaments...so cute. Sure you want to sell them?

  12. That was a great sale. Love the table - color and all. The shutters were a great find. But my favorite of all is the dictionary.

  15. SCORE!!!! That's what I call a gold mine...can't believe the prices!!! The table and the Christmas ornaments are my total favorite. Good for you!! I bet this made your weekend!!

  16. This is hilarious - I JUST finished painting a similar table to the one in your first post in the exact same colors! Mine has 3 drawers instead of the open space but the knobs are the same shape. Its drying right now but once its ready I'll post a pic on my blog.

    It sounds like a really fun sale overall though!
