Saturday Treasure Hunt

 

There were so many great yard and estate sales this past week end.....plus a big auction on Saturday.    It was the kind of week end every yard saler dreams of!


Some of you may remember that I do a Nutcracker themed tree at Christmas and also use Nutcrackers in my Christmas Kitchen too.     I found a Fitz & Floyd teapot, cream & sugar, and a snack tray.....$20 for all.   I can't wait to use them this Christmas.
Not a crack or chip in my 20+ year old set.

 
A sweet little older lady was trying to get rid of a bunch of her stuff and was selling it cheap....really cheap!   I draped the long crocheted runners down the front of the island to give you an idea of how long they are....about 5'.  3 were 5' long.....2 were about 2' long,  and then there was 3 placemat size.
The first photo is 2 embroidered runners about 3' long.....the second photo is some embroidered napkins,  and the third is the crocheted pieces.    They were marked .50 each....but she told me anything on that table was .10.......10..........10 cents.....are you kidding me!   I bought all that was left.
I found this neat drip o lator for $4.....
The little lady with the .10 table also had a .25 table and I found this pretty tablecloth....... I also bought a couple of other items from that table,  but they are still in the wash.   I like to wash everything when I get it home....I'll show you them another time.
I bought this ceramic strawberry cake plate from the same lady that I got the FF Christmas items....it was $5.
$1 for this pretty rose serving tray.

We went to the auction later Saturday morning and  I can't wait to show you what I got there.    Hardly anyone was there and everything went really cheap!

  10. Love those linens! It would've been hard to not act excited if I had been in your shoes! And to be there with the person who had hand-crafted them - I just love the thoughts of that. Just read your other linked post and this was the 2nd one I visited through Linda's party (not knowing it was also yours). What a coincidence! I think that's a sign that I should become your newest follower, don't you? ;)

  11. I nearly fainted dead away when I saw all the wonderful things you found! I wanted to go but I am so afraid of injuring my foot again that we still stayed home. :( Perhaps this Saturday morning. I hope so. I'm keeping busy painting and changing things around. Linens are the thing I covet and always look for. I never tire of finding treasures..never.
    Penny..do you live in that sweet home you decorate or do you just decorate it. It is like a dream cottage...I would be so protective of it...I wouldn't want anyone to touch anything or move anything or even begin to sit at that table...or..or...ANYTHING! :) It's just so sweet!
