I only went to two yard sales, then went out to the country to a friend's house and HAD to stop at a thrift shop along the way. It's not often that I get away from the city and I'm always up for a trip to a new thrift shop.
I'm so glad I stopped because I found a few great treasures! My total for the day was $30 exactly! And this is what I found...
Two pairs of pants, two pair of shorts and a bandanna. This pair of pants has already been turned into a pair of shorts! My first successful refashion!!
Two gorgeous silver trays...
...an antique top... I asked the woman if she made it and she said she found it at an antique shop. I was just getting it for the beads but now I'm not so sure I want to take it apart!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this skirt but I I love the material and it was only $1!
I have a growing collection of pitchers and absolutely love handmade pottery. I lucked out finding two such pieces today!
Handmade by DD in 1975.
Handmade by Kitty in 1960.
Parhaps the buttons will be donated to this shirt! I definitely didn't buy this for the buttons. And it's not quite my style right now, but I have a vision of some changes. I think I like the color most.
Plus I found a small shelf to display my shells and a men's bike in perfectly good shape for $10!
I think I did well!
So to recap...
Yard 1: 2 pair pants, bandana, small shelf, two silver trays, men's bike in perfectly good condition: $18
Yard 2: skirt, vintage beaded tank style top, handmade pitcher, cookie jar: $6
Thrift Shop: 2 vintage patterns, 1 vintage crochet booklet, two tops, handmade pitcher, 3 pairs of scissors: $6
