Weekend (thrifted) spoils

I was FINALLY able to get some garaging done! Our weekends have been so jam packed that it just hasn't happened this summer for me. Saturday after WW I called the house to see if anyone was awake, and since they were all still sleeping I headed out! I found some great treasures! It was definitely meant to be!

My spoils. All of this stuff for 18 bucks, which is way more than I normally spend, but one woman was selling out her house because she has to move into a care home, and there was no way I was gonna haggle her!

Acorn candle container, brand new ($1), bath and body works white candle holder plate (10cents), 2 brand new boxes of jar lids (25 cents for both!), hand crocheted collar and doily ($3-from the little old lady. Way more than I would normally pay, but it was for a good cause!), amazing pink jump rope (75 cents), 2 dorky yet fun CD's...both Simpson sisters (25 cents each), white jar lid..for which I have the perfect fruity glass jar(10 cents).

brand new recipe tin filled with recipes from Sandra Lee ($2), Lady and Sons dessert book ($1!!), bag of pony beads ($1)

AMAZING E.O. Brody Co. milk glass vase ($1). This was a STEAL! And I am thrilled about it!
And my favorite purchases, by far, three gorgeous vintage sheets. The blue ones are a set, twin I think and the pink is just a flat. I have never seen the pink pattern before and for that reason I was willing to pay the old lady $2.50 a piece. It will make for some great crafting...now I just have to be brave enough to cut into it!
I absolutely love garaging, it's such a thrill when you find a steal or something great for your home. And I have no shoppers remorse when I buy second hand!

Hi, Shannon! I am in LOVE with the sheets you scored. So cute!! I think it was really cool of you to not haggle with the old lady...she could probably use the money. Great find with the vase too! Visiting from Rhoda's party! :) (PS. Took a look at your Etsy shop...super cute!!!!)

Hi Shannon,
Wow! You found some really great things! I love the milk glass vase & have one very similar. The acorn candle holder is so neat! And I would love to get my hands on any of Paula Deen's cook books! Also love the vintage sheets! I am addicted to garage sales too & already am looking forward to this weekends sales. Thanks so much for visiting & for checking out my etsy! Now I am off to yours!

Mimi said...

For $18 you got a great haul...I remember buying my daughter sheets in that pink/orange pattern!

Mrs. L said...

That milk glass is awesome! And I'd pay the little old lady good money too, as it's for a good cause (and score on the recipe stuff too!)

Victoria said...

Wow, you did great! I love the milk glass vase, that's gorgeous!!!

Kim said...

What fun finds! I'm glad you did haggle the elderly woman :). I especially like the cookbook.

Suzy said...

Great finds! The sheets are neat..reminds me of something we had when I was a kind..the pink one.

I love those vintage sheets Shannon! But I'm with you, cutting into them is the hard part! LOL I picked up one at an estate sale with the intention of making a schoolhouse tunic from Sew Liberated but haven't worked up the nerve to cut it yet! Hopefully courage will arrive soon cause I REALLY want that top. :)
Thanks for sharing your wonderful finds!

Susan said...

Wow. Those are some very fun finds. You're going to have a good time with all your new treasures.

Hope you're having a nice sunny day,
