Bundle Me Baby!

2011-05-22

I’ve been  gallivanting about as of late. For the past two weeks I have been away ten of the fourteen days.

I could hardly wait to show you some of my yard sale and D.I. treasures.

My NEW favorite thing to do at yard sales is to say,
“Can you give me a bundle deal?”  This is a little trick I learned from the show, PICKERS.  Thanks to Frank I found a fun way of getting a better price.

Here are a few of my BUNDLES

I got this bundle for $50

168

179

The plaid thermos was marked $13 and the turquoise one was $8.  I  love the plaid  just as it is, but think the tqs.  will be so cute filled with flowers.

176

This group would’ve been about $15.

175

marked $17.

177

$13-A few years ago I bought a collection of red dishes when vacationing in Virginia.  What is a red dish collection without a hobnail bowl?

178

$8-Not sure what this is.  Looks like maybe something from the ‘50’s’ that would hold oil or salad dressing.  It was red and white so it caught my eye.

There were also the two milk bottles ($8 each) and one with a metal clasp. I can’t remember the price.

Add it all up and I think you’ll agree, $50 was a great deal. 

Here is another bundle:

171

172

I heart vintage food items.

174

I collect old sprinklers.  Thought these were awfully cute.

173

Sweet little love doves on an old perfume bottle

183

All but the pitchfork ($1.00) were bought at D.I.  I already have some of these cherry plates so it will be fun to add to my collection.  I will be pulling out my cherry décor soon.  Can’t wait!

164

I went to a quilt retreat at the home of a very special lady.  I will be blogging more about it this week.  Her Aunt, Bunny is what you might call a “Queen Estate and Yard Sale Lady”.  On Sat. she brought items over for us to buy.  It was so much fun.  We were limited to one item each until everyone had a chance to get something.  My first choice was the turquoise pitcher. 

165

Love the hand mixer too!

Wanted the high chair, but wasn’t sure where I could put it.  When no one else nabbed it I thought, “gotta have it!”  The paint is to die for!

166

Look at that!  Red with turquoise underneath.

167

This is the seat.  I am just going to give it an old fashioned cleaning with soap and water and varnish it.  I love it just like it is!

Now for the fun part:

182

It converts into this darling rocker.

181

It wasn’t a bundle deal, but because I bought the high chair/rocker ($75 – which is what she said she paid for it).  She threw the pitcher and beater in for free.

So what do you think of my bundles?  Deal or NO Deal?

Love your bundle deals. Looks like you had a lot of fun the last two weeks. You deserve it.

Especially love the high chair. You did good.

Glad you're back. Time to plant 11 flats of flowers, right?

McFadden said...

Looks like a great deal to me, almost as good as the deals I got at the care center yard sale.

Cute things and great deals. But where will you put it all? Much as I love to buy, I have to admit my spaces are full! Nancy H

Jann,

We had a high chair just like that when Doug was a baby. I remember it just one time. So it is way older than he is that is so fine.

I'm flipping out over that red rocker. Love the turquoise items too, especially the hand mixer. You must have had a delightful time visiting and shopping thrifty finds. Thanks for sharing with us at Rednesday.

I love getting bundle deals, but it's rare that I find enough at one sale where I can ask for a deal. The pickin' just hasn't been good so far this year! Love all of your deals, especially that highchair/rocker. The paint is just dreamy!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol
