I hit one of the best yard sales ever on Wednesday, and on Thursday, and again on Friday. Every day there was more new stuff being brought out. And everyday, I kept going back to see it. It was a continuation of the sale I visited here. The owner owned a consignment store and was a home stager, but she was getting rid of all of her stock. Wow! She had furniture, lamps, accessories, and more.
I usually order my lamps when I go to the High Point Furniture market, but occasionally I have need for something right away. This was the case with the chrome desk lamp I found for $8.00. It’s a touch on/off lamp, with dimmer capabilities and it looks to be brand new!
I added this wooden cigar box to the tabletop, as well. It was 25 cent purchase. Although it’s standing on end now, it could easily be used for storage of small trinkets.
Hiding behind a stash of someone else’s goodies in the garage were two large mirrors that I knew I had to have. They’re four feet tall and about two feet wide, and although they are now burnished gold, I definitely plan on painting them. Not sure what color yet, however. They are heavy wood mirrors and they will help fill the wall on either side of the baker’s rack in the great room. They were a great price at only $17 each.
But the star of the sale was this rattan table and four chairs for $32.oo. Yup- you read it right! For the entire set! Not bad at all, wouldn’t you say?
The finish will be darkened up with stain a little, and I’ll make new seat cushions, too. More new jobs for my “free” time. I like the idea of covering it with a scrunched throw and adding candlesticks and a bowl of alphabet/number balls.
I like the simple design of the tabletop.
There were other purchases, but I’ll be saving them for later. Look for one at Barb’s Rooster Party. Instead, you get to see a couple of things I found at a smaller sale last weekend.
I found this large silver plated ladle at a neighborhood yard sale for a mere$1.50. I guess I need to break out the ol’ toothbrush and silver polish once again.
It was definitely Christmas in July finding this wine chef Santa. Complete with a wine bucket, wine list, a goblet, and some breadsticks, he cost me two whole buckeroos!
And this pair of brand new chairs was FREE to me, courtesy of the hubs!!! Mr. S was having a tent sale at his store and he unearthed them from the warehouse. My plans call for some rub and buff to age them up in the appropriate places. I have just the spot for them under a sofa table. Great for extra seating at parties.
I’m linked up with some of my favorite parties again this week. Please visit their hostesses and share in the fun. I’m sure you’ll get to see a lot of fun finds.
