Garage Sale Finds

I went to a subdivision garage sale,40 houses, with a friend, she picked me up at 7 am and we just got home it's 12:39pm LOL ( fyi ) LOL. I am ready for a cool drink and wanted to make the Pink Saturday Blog

My best purchases was 2 old tea pots for 50 cents !!! I love them both and have cream & sugars to almost match them both

love it

I left the pink sack the lady packed them in for Pink Saturday but really I didn't need to do that oh well, I still can't believe 50cents for both tea pots 

then yesterday I went to an estate sale and got these 2 Texas bowls for a very good price , my oldest daughter loves these and they might show up at her house in Portland Oregon ?

back to garage sales 
Then I bought this faux Louis Vuitton wastepaper basket , and I don't have any faux Louis Vuitton in my house, ( just bragging LOL)  however I thought I can use it in the studio , it was $3.00

I bought this beautiful mirror for $3.00 at same yard sale, don't you like the etching on it ? 

I bought these pieces of old silver for a quarter a piece and they will clean up good 

Tiara !!!!!!!!

25 cents to use for altered necklace !!!!!!!!!!

50 cents and they really need a bath 

and I bought a purple pumpkin to paint silver and a little blue & white cup 

linky parties

  9. Hi Janice,
    I need to go to garage sales with you girlfriend! I never have much luck. Maybe I need to go to more then just one or two, huh?
    Great finds, thanks for showing us!

  10. The teapots are very pretty and such a great deal. I especially love the mirror.

  11. Love love the tiara and necklace! I never find prices like that around here, you lucky ducky!

  12. What fabulous finds - you really were lucky. I love everything, especially the tiara, necklace and spoons. Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. What a deal on the teapots. I would love to go to a good sale-they have dried up around here.

  14. Love the tiara--hope you wear it around your house to feel special! I once knew a first grade teacher who would put her tiara on when she was working with a small group--it was a signal to the other students that she was not to be interrupted! Thanks for the great idea about painting your purple pumpkin silver--we have one just like it in bright orange and painting it will make it something special to decorate with. I enjoyed seeing your yard sale purchases.

  15. Fabulous finds! Gotta love the tiara!! You really cashed in on your purchases!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

    Found you on Coastal Charm's Tuesday party!
