It was a fun weekend of yardsales and hitting the Birmingham Flea Market. As I mentioned, the flea market was a let-down, but we all managed to bring home a few goodies, especially me, since I started at a big neighborhood yardsale first. Glad I went ahead and bought. I have wanted a little CD/clock radio for my downstairs guestroom so I can listen to praise music in there when I feel like it and I found this almost brand new one for $5. Exactly what I wanted and it works perfect too! You never know about electronics, but I usually take their word for it that things work and they usually do. Tried out a little Kenny Loggins on it. :)
Since I’m a sucker for bamboo things, I couldn’t pass up this cute little shelf for $4. I’m not sure where it’s going yet, still mulling that over.
Cute caning detail.
Aqua and ceramic planters, I love both so this was a shoe-in at $1 and it’s not small either.
An adorable little black and white shell box was $1.
Cute little green bottle was 10 cents. I can see a clipped flower in here sitting in my window sill.
Can you believe I found another large soup tureen, this one for $2? It was a good day for me. So, then it was time to head to the flea market. We all met up for some browsing and stayed here quite a while…..
Checking out all the jewelry and stones. I love turquoise and pretty stones.
These necklaces were already strung and just needed the clasps added. I bought a lime green set that Sandi is fixing for me, both necklace and bracelet for $9. I’ll show you that later when I get it back. There really wasn’t that much at this flea market that was really interesting to me, but we did find a seller who had some great vintage things. Found out he also sells at Scott’s Antiques in Atlanta once a month. I can see why. He had the best space here!
Lots of vintage furniture pieces.
A chippy garden piece that I loved.
This old cabinet was really pretty.
And some old chippy gliders.
So, that’s my haul for the week, mostly from the yardsale. The granite is in process, house is torn up from moving everything out of the cabinets. Ran into a little problem with the backsplash. Where I thought there would be a gap between the back of the granite and the existing backsplash, the bottom of the tile backsplash will actually have to be trimmed off about 1/4” or so to allow the granite to slide into place. Didn’t see that one coming, so that’s an extra $350 I wasn’t planning to spend. :( Oh well, that’s the way projects go, have you noticed that? Everything won't be completed until Friday and then we'll be busy with Mother's Day weekend, so it will be next week before I can get that kitchen all cleaned up and take pics to show you, but I promise I will as soon as I can. I’m looking forward to the finish line!
Do you realize how dependent we are on our sinks? I have found that out this week.
Don’t forget our Garden Party tomorrow! I hope you’ll all come back and share what’s going on in YOUR yard. It finally stopped raining long enough for me to take some decent pics (and then started another downpour), so I have some pretty blooms to show you. I don't want to party alone!
