Here's a little teaser preview of some of the treasures I found while yard salin' Friday with mi madre. As I mentioned earlier, the deals were fabulous (I mean like 10c and 25c price tags), but the vintage was not abundant. I got a late start getting to my mom's house (about 45-50 minutes from mine) and we picked a popular addition to shop (maybe we should have ventured to one of the town-wide sales in near-by areas). Nevertheless, since I really went without expectations and a set limit to my funds (cash!), I had an open mind.
I only have a small bit pictured above (what was left in the trunk when I left IN last night; the rest is back home being cleaned or already put away).
(My usual, terrible photos...I think I really need to practice! I am in constant awe of some of the photography I see on blogs)
I will do a part II this weekend because I left the cool stuff behind. I found a handmade tulip quilt (my most expensive purchase); afghan; a corning ware percolator coffee pot (brand new only 25c!!); farm ledger; and a great wooden turtle ottoman/step stool thing and many, many more items. I even brought money home!
