Unbelieveable Yard Sale Finds

I have had great luck this year with yard/estate sales. Bargains beyond belief!





First, an older lighthouse bed and breakfast in my neighborhood had an estate sale. I can't believe the buys that I got! These people just wanted everything gone so prices were $1-$5 on most items (most of the furniture was gone when I discovered the sale). Above, a whole truckload of goods. Old handmade toolboxes, an antique tractor wheel, a bench, heavy ceramic planters, tools...






We also bought this boat for $5; we are going to turn it into a drink station for the wedding (and maybe a planter after the wedding).


I have visions of making this wagon wheel into a table.


I also got these adorable (one solid brass) lanterns for $1 each...I have no clue what I will do with them -- they are none working, but maybe candle holders? Just decoration?

Finally, I got a whole wicker set at a different sale -- settee, coffee table, end table, rocker and chair -- for $50! And, it's beautiful wicker. Oh, and she threw in all of the cushions. It is stacked in my family room (the porch isn't finished yet). Since I spent so little, I elected to splurge and have them professional re-covered .... you will see them in an upcoming post.That's all for now!
