weekend yard sale finds

Jeff, Nina and I went to quite a few yard sales Saturday. We saw lots of junk but we did find a few treasures. I did not get pictures of Nina's things but she got a few baby things, a mirror/planter box she hung in their entryway, a closet organizer and dry-erase magnetic calendar bulletin board.
Our 3 biggest purchases were all from one seller - some newlyweds, just graduating from OSU - who will be moving to Poland to work as missionaries in a coffee shop. They were selling off most all of their possessions. These first 3 things are from them.

3 large glass storage jars, $5 for all 3
I've been using some not so pretty Tupperware for my baking canisters, now I will be switching them to these pretty glass jars.

a very heavy glass, and very pretty bathroom set for $5

Jeff has been wanting a dock for his Ipod and was very happy to buy this one for $10
It works great and he says the new ones sell for $99 at Walmart

2 nice wood puzzles for when Gavin and baby E are both a little bigger - $1 each

Discovery Toy Boomering links - $2

hula girl shirt bought for 25 cents, not for the shirt but I like the fabric and plan on cutting it up, then sewing it in to some other project

He is not from a yard sale, but he was a rescue puppy. This is Fletch, one of our "grand-dogs" and he is spending the night with us. Isn't it amazing how he sits upright on his bottom?

  2. Rhonda, Love the glass jars!!!! I think our town is having one the last of May or first of June so hope to get thru our garage and shed and take stuff. Then what doesn't sell will go straight to Goodwill.

  4. I can't believe you found a dock for $10. Times are changing when you can find docks instead of old CD players. I could use one in every room.

  11. Hi Rhonda,
    Hope you are well!

    I have been admiring your finds lately - love the glass jars and the pyrex dishes. We have terrible yard sales where I live. I miss finding such good deals, but perhaps it's a good thing as it could be dangerous for me. :)

  12. Oh, I bought a new glass jar recently at WM for home-baked goodies and it was over $5 and change just for one jar. Not a bad price, but I like your deal better. :)
