yard sale friday

Aromatherapy eye pillow with lavender $1 (I just looked they go for $17.94 online)
Now on to the good stuff Hp Photosmart camera $27.00 She wanted $35 but came down when I told her Id have to go to the bank!!!

This is my $2.00 chair I want to paint (with the free Glidden paint) a light blue. it came with a pillow seat for the bottom I'm thinking of redoing it in dark and light blue stripes. Oh did I say I got this chair for the boys room? Ryan already loves it. (Yes that is a scuff on my floor;-)
Extra cake pan topper (I got one last week).10¢ drink thingy .25¢ 2 sets of Kid K'nex $2.00 and some foot scrub .25¢
Here is my $2 chair with the ugly pillow seat ( I almost turned it down) frilly Just is not my type! Thanks to all the new thrifty blogs( they make the ugliest stuff so cute) I am reading, I decided to redo it, some paint and fabric this would look great in the boys room. Yes them are play guns for the boys .50¢
This was my first yard sale. I am glad a lot of ppl don't bake anymore because I want their rolling pins! This one is great!! My best so far, I am so happy I found this for a $1!!!

The cookie is a different story, I always buy from the little kids who sale lemonade or cookies and stuff just because I don't see a lot of other ppl doing so.


After your done plz head over to Southern Hospitality.

I say paint it! It would look really nice. For some reason men seem to always want to leave wood alone.

Good buys! Painting the chair a fun color sounds like a great idea!! I just got boring black from Glidden...wish I'd been more adventurous. ;) Visiting from Rhoda's party. :)

Love the rolling pin and chair you got! I can't wait to see how the chair comes out.

I bet that chair is going to look great. I too just recently started yardsaling. One had Krispy Kreme doughnuts, well, I couldn't resist :)

The last kid I bought from had some lemonade. I asked if he made it himself (it was neon yellow). He said, "No, my dad made it".
I took a bottle of water ;o)

My mother in law painted her rocker light blue and it looks amazing. Great deal I totally would have bought it too.
