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
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.
This group would’ve been about $15.
$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?
$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:
I heart vintage food items.
I collect old sprinklers. Thought these were awfully cute.
Sweet little love doves on an old perfume bottle
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!
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.
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!
Look at that! Red with turquoise underneath.
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:
It converts into this darling rocker.
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?
