First neighborhood yard sale of 2011


We went to a pretty good group of sales Saturday morning.  Not really awesome but it was pleasant weather and we could mostly walk from sale to sale. 
My husband picked out the little iron skillet,  $1. 
Jimmy got the Texas ware bowl,  the hook that goes over a door and the "real" Mona Lisa,  at least the seller said it was real.  His total - $1.75.
I got the vinyl tablecloth for 50 cents,  the bread book was $1,  2 Corelle platters were $1,  the little Dora Explorer sofa was $1.50 - I would like to recover it but it may be a bigger job than I have time for.

My favorite purchase -the 2 glass beverages pitchers -$3 for both!  they are in the fridge full of iced tea. 

I think we went to about 15-20 homes with sales,  but not a single piece of Pyrex at any of them though. 

Have the rummage sales started in your town yet?

  1. I went to my first garage sale of the year on Saturday and I got a Vintage Ice Chest. I will blog about it as soon as I get it cleaned up. It is lovely, in my opinion anyways!
    You got some great little goodies! Save some iced tea for me!
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. Yes. We've been out on a few weekends already. Haven't found anything spectacular, I don't think, but some needed items!

  3. You found some good buys! We've gone out the past couple of weekends, but haven't found much. Last week I did pick up an old manual typewriter - as long as you really hit the keys hard, it types great! I really wanted the case it was in, the typewriter was a bonus.

  7. I enjoy neighborhood sales the most when I can walk from house to house.
