Saturday Treasures!

Just as I promised, here are my treasures I picked up on Saturday.   I only went to five sales on Saturday,but the sales that I did go to were great.

When I got to this sale it was pouring down rain.  It was advertised as a moving sale.  There was not that much there and their prices were somewhat high.  However I was able to get a few bargains.  The flowers and the eucalyptus was .50 cents for all of it.  The vintage gloves were $1.00 and the brand new Advent candles were also a $1.00.  Not only is that a good price for Advent candles but if I don't lose them I will be ahead of the game and not have to leave church the week before Advent starts and have to drive all over town to find them.  Not that that has ever happened to me, just saying.



This was actually the first sale that I went to.  I got 6 adjustable sash rods for .25 cents...yes for all of them.  The cork wreath was .50 cents and the cloche was .10 cents.  I plan to rip the corks from the wreath and use them as jar filler.


This was an estate sale across the sale from the one above, but it started an hour latter and was just advertised as a regular garage sale.  I almost didn't go because I didn't want to drive back but went to see if the other sale had something that I didn't buy the first time.  They didn't.  Everything in this picture was .25 cents each.



This mirror was $1.00.  It is so beautiful.  It is made of cast iron and is just perfect with the little fleur di lis.

This was $1.00.  It was on the dining room table on top of another cloth that was patterned and had stuff displayed all over it.  It wasn't marked and I don't think that the lady even knew that it was there till I mentioned it.





All these linens were $2.00 for EVERYTHING , including 7 placemats,  5 blue napkins, 14 white napkins, 2 small tablecloths, 2 hand towels and 3 doilies!


Everything in this picture was .10 cents



Everything in this picture was free.



This sale had great stuff but the lady knew what she had and the prices were high.  I love this small compote it is beautiful $5.00 was an all right price, the linens were a good price at $3.00 for all of them.  The saucer and the creamer were $1.00 each.



This was the last sale that I went to.  i almost didn't go there because I heard a couple of people talking at another sale and a lady said that it wasn't worth the trip.  I went and was kicking myself for listening to her.  I do find that usually seasoned garage salers know their stuff and can usually steer you away from a dud of a sale.  I know this lady and always run into her when out at sales, but in this case she was dead wrong.

I got everything pictured for $3.00!

Well I'm linking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.11
