Neighborhood Yard Sales

There were several neighborhood yard sales in Amarillo Texas Saturday,  so we took the short trip over...about an hour and a half drive.   The biggest neighborhood sale was in Rolling Hills and 23 homes participated.

One house had a big barn full of stuff.   He said that he bought abandoned storage sheds and sold the contents in yard sales.   He had recently bought one that had lots of craft items.....old lace, fabric and knick knacks....

Lots of the homes had vintage items.....

Can you see the little purse the larger doll has on her arm?

   The fabric on the left is a set of twin sheets and the striped fabric is a large piece....about 4 yards.

These seat cushions aren't really in my colors but I couldn't pass up ME......$4 for both cushions.

I snapped a few photos of some of the gorgeous flower beds we saw as we hunted for treasures.....

I have never been a big fan of Knock out Roses because the flowers are not really very pretty. (to me)   But when I saw them planted in mass,  I think I have changed my mind.   I also was reading on them that you don't have to dead head and they bloom all summer.  May have to get me some!

Loved the boy reading a book statue on this porch.
This home was HUGE and it had flower beds all the way around it.     I put the photos in a row that takes you all the way around the house in the photo below.   My photo really doesn't o this yard justice!

This home sits on a corner lot and I started at the left with a photo of the flower beds that are next to the house next door and ended with the photo of the beds that are at the end of the alley

I always save the best for!    I picked up this gorgeous mirror for $10.....I couldn't believe the price!    Hope you had as much luck as we did on the sales Saturday!
