I haven't done a Junkin post in a couple of weeks,   life has been busy with the upcoming wedding of our daughter in October.

We had a chance to go to a few yard sales Saturday and boy was I glad we did!  

 I've seen these chafing dishes in silver many times,  but not in gold.

The lady also had the casserole dish to match.   Since I wanted to buy both of them,  she let me have the pair for $15.

Aren't these dishes gorgeous!  
 A little old couple was down sizing and had a big box of these dishes in their yard sale.   There are 12....yes...12.....5 piece place settings.  plus several serving pieces.

$40 for all!  
 I couldn't get them loaded in the car fast!

I'm a sucker for silver hand mirrors....

Although the mirror is broken in this one,  I thought it was well worth  .50

A lovely ceramic watering can.....$5

My last treasure is a crystal cake pedestal....$2

Not only was Saturday a great day for finding treasures,  the temperature was in the low 70's and the sun was was a perfect day!


  1. How wonderful to have such a beautiful day to find these great deals, my favorite has got to be that pitcher!

  2. Woot, the mother-lode. Can't wait to see the pictures of your wedding, thanks for sharing, Sandi

  3. Hopped over from Stephanie's *Roses of Inspiration* link-up party to *meet* you. What incredible finds!!! My favourite is the china....Noritake no less!! What a gorgeous pattern! And to think....a complete set! Happy wedding planning to you. Many Blessings, Camille

  4. You found some lovely unexpected treasures! That is the best kind. Have a great day! Lynn

  5. Maybe if we'd get our lazy butts up early enuf we'd find some good deals at yard sales here (few miles west of Grand Junction, CO). It's hard for me to get hubs to go to yard sales, he's just not into the"treasure waiting for me to find" mentality. He is handy for finding addresses of sales. I am so envious of all your finds but those dishes are superb, what a find girl for $40, oh my stars. So happy for you. Will you be using any of your finds for daughters wedding?
    Great month to marry, not too hot and not too cold. Hope her wedding goes off beautifully. Happy week

  6. I have "dish envy"...what a great find!!!!

  7. Those dishes are gorgeous! Congrats on the upcoming wedding, too!

  8. I always love to see what you find! So fun!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  9. For so many years I wanted pretty things and could never have them. I find "junkin'" is the way. For me, the only way!

  10. Always great finds!

  11. Penny,
