What I bought at the Yard Sales Saturday

I found lots of treasures at the yard sales Saturday......

This lovely ivory Victorian lampshade was marked $10,   but anything over $5 I always ask if it's their best price.   She let me have it for $7.  
 I didn't have a carousel for my new horses to ride on,  so I just let them gallop around the

They are part of the Thomas Kinkade Carousel Collection.....

The horses have a beautiful picture on their saddle......

I bought all that the lady had,  so she let me have 8 for $20 instead of $3 each.

A pretty quilt for $2......

The lady I bought these from said she had a ball of twine in the duck head and let it pull out thru the hole in his beak....

Three hand towels for the guest bath.....

Large piece of crochet for $1......two little bouquets for .75.......

Last but not least is my bee table fits a square card table.

   I also found a couple of concrete pieces for the garden,  but they are too heavy to bring in and it's freezing cold outside.   We have a cold front going thru eastern New Mexico and its 50 degrees outside and the wind is 20 miles an hour out of the north. It warms up tomorro and then we have 70-80's for the next 10 days.


  1. Penny - Love all of your finds. The quilt is so pretty. Love the colors. The carousel horses are gorgeous. I'm such a fan of Kincade.

  4. Penny,
    I am now getting up off the floor as I passed out when I read what you paid for those Thomas Kinkade Horses!!! Holy Moly!! What a steal and you know how I love Thomas Kinkade!! The lamp Shade is a beauty along with everything else but the horses are the buy of the decade!! It is 50 degrees here too and cold, damp and rainy and will be like this all week...
