Rain was falling softly at first, then increased to a pretty steady pace, but I didn't let that stop me from venturing out at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning to the Mt. Laurel yardsale. I look forward to this one every Spring and Fall and it doesn't disappoint. There are always new sellers with lots of various things for sale and you never know what you'll find.
These pics aren't the best, since the rain, she was a-fallin', but you get the idea. I took my camera along again to show you what was out there. I'll show you what I didn't get, but thought was some pretty good buys.
This chair an ottoman was $25. Now, I sat in it & the cushion was a little squishy, I think it needed some spring work, but if you were in the market to overhaul something like this, it was a bargain. The fabric looked decent from a distance, but was quite a bit faded up close. Still, a good buy.
This pair of children's beds were very cute. I didn't get the price on them.
Newly painted black mirror, with the tape still on was $15. Quite large too.
Set of French inspired prints were $7 each.
This 5x8' antique Oriental rug was $100. It was in pretty good condition.
This girl had some nice things. This old sewing machine base with wood top was $20.
Lots of Fitz & Floyd collectibles too.
And a Pottery Barn kids bookshelf was $15 (I think).
Pretty little rocking chair was $15 or 20, can't really remember. So, that's what you missed.
I need another purse like a hole in the head, but I brought another one home...it's leather by Harold's and was $4. With fuschia lining, no less.
Two cute little T's by Chico were $3 for both. Great casual shirts for fall.
Books were $1 each. I already have the Decorating one, so I'll probably have a giveaway and one of my lucky readers will get it. Later! The Garden Style book is a nice hardcover.
Cute little monogram tray for $1, that will go to my niece, Lauren. I think this has to be from The Royal Standard, where I got my paper mache trashcan with the monogram. Those 2 chunky candlesticks were 50 cents each.
And last, a new pair of Ralph Lauren sandals for $4, chocolate brown with a small heel and very cute. I need another pair of shoes like I need a hole in the head too. Did I let that stop me?! NOPE. One of the things I need to do this Fall is clean out my closet...it's on the list!
Did you enjoy the yardsale? I wish you all could have been with me...rain and all! Really, the rain chased away a lot of customers, but it didn't stop me from the bargains.
I worked with my design friend, Mary, on another project last Friday. It was a lot of fun! Sorry I can't share them with all of you too, but wanted to let you know what I've been up to. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on MY redesign. It is so much fun to be doing what I love to do!
