What you missed at my yardsale

I'll be up bright and early this a.m. putting all of this outside for the shoppers.....

Looks like I might be meeting a few new blog friends in person today.
See anything you like?
This ALL needs to go!


Wish me luck! Of course I'll give you all an update too on how it all went. Looks like a good day for it weather-wise.

Rhoda, Doesn't it feel good to clean out like that? I'm not one who stashes things. I like to clear the path. :)

Good luck!

Kristi said...

I'm sick... If you don't sell those thick gold framed (circular) pictures, let me know!

Melissa Wertz said...

Boo Hoo! I can't get over there today!

Jen M said...

What fabulous goodies! I wish I could come and pick through them. Hope the yard sale goes well.

Manuela said...

Have a great sale! My husband decided to spend the night in Birmingham last night instead of driving back to ATL at 10 PM and I begged him to go to your yardsale! Sadly, he's anxious to come home (he's been gone all week). One little stop on the way.....

You're so good at recycling, I'm surprised your giving up some great things. I wish I could be there. I saw alot I'd like to take home. Good luck I think you'll make a bundle!

Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

Karen said...

oh I wish I could have come! I think MI is too far:) I went to one today and she had beautiful things, just priced too much for a garage sale IMO. I think more like a resale shop.

I have one of those heavy pineapple or artichoke thingys.

Susie Q said...

Oh how I wish I loved closer!
Such lovely treasures! I hope it is very successful!

Love,
Sue

I enjoyed meeting you today! I hope you made alot of sales. Hey! I didnt see that yellow coverlet...I guess it sold. Pretty.
The consigner down the street was a good sale too. I bought several things from her, coinsidentally I have been to her shop.
Again, nice to see you in person, finally!

Nancy said...

Oh Rhoda, If that tassel trim didn't sell...but I'm sure it sold..:( Well, I do hope you had a great day! We are planning one for next Saturday...I can't wait to get rid of all my greenry..LOL. Blessings, Nancy

Strawberry Blonde said...

Hope you had better luck that I had today. This was the worst turn out for a yard sale that I have ever had. There were lots in the area and several local events, so maybe all their money was gone by the time they reached my neighborhood. Oh well, it all went to the thrift store. Once it is out of my house, it is NOT allowed to reenter.

Looks like you had lots of pretties, though. I'm sure your sale was a smashing success.

SophieMae said...

For some strange reason, dh wasn't agreeable to driving 300 miles for your sale. Maybe if he'd seen the palm print. 8-] I can't imagine anything being left. Like many others, I've rarely seen such wonderful goodies at a yard sale.

KMfamily said...

those are some great goodies!!! Im sure your sale will be profitable!
Best of Luck to you!

Anonymous said...

Be sure to announce your yard sale at a free online yard sale and you can post your left-over valuables in your own online sale.

Good Luck

Bella Casa said...

I hope you had a great sale, Rhoda! I saw some goodies there on your table!!!

salmagundi said...

I would be there if it wasn't hundreds of miles away!!! Sally

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

Oh, I can't wait to hear how it turned out. I hit the bomb of a yard sale, and I was thinking of all my crafty friends that can sew. A daughter was cleaning out storage from her mom after she passed away this year. An entire storage shed of fabric, FRINGE, crafting things. I got a BOX of all different gorgeous fringe. It smells like storage but is all new, so I hope I can wash it in the washing machine.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

I'm sure that your sale went amazingly well! You had some gorgeous things! I spied a good old Trivial Pursuit game - I used to love to play that game back in the day. LOL.
I have found quite a bit of "stuff" around here that I need to sell, but to get organized. Perhaps I'll have a blog-sale. : )

Rhoda

I hope it went well. Yard sales are a lot of work, but it's such a nice feeling once it's over.

I hope some blog friends were able to come.

Hugs!
Kat

Pearl Maple said...

Wishing we lived a bit closer, you had way too much temptation on offer there.

Best of all by moving along things that no longer sing for you gives you more room for new toys.

mishebe said...

Cathy said...

Congrats on a successful yardsale! Dh and I are eating out less to cut back on spending and trim the waistlines.

Tracy said...

Oh Rhoda, I would have been in Garage sale heaven. You had some really cute things. Glad you did well. Need to have one myself. Just gotta find the time. :)

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Oh, I definitely spy some items that would have come home with me! I think I see a pair of little oval framed Victorian-esque prints? Yes...I would have needed them. :-)

I am so sorry to have missed such a yard sale extravaganza!

And, hoo boy, your bookshelf looks AMAZING!

PamperingBeki said...

Ohhh I wish I could've been there! I see several things I'd have wanted to use as jewelry displays at my shows.
