Ready, Set, Go Junkin" !

What a wonderful weekend of junkin and yard sales! My son Tyler (who's my partner in crime) and I were ready for the yard sales this weekend. On Thursday I checked the garage sale section on Craigslist and saw a couple for Saturday that I wanted to stop by and our local paper which held more prospects. The sales we chose listed vintage and collectibles...two of my favorite words. LOL. This was definitely a weekend of treasures!! Here are just a few of the items we scored!! I have to thank my son for a couple of the items, if he hadn't pointed them out, I would have missed them! Thanks Tyler! So, here are some of the treasures we found and if you want to see who else is finding great treasures, stop by Southern Hospitality , Rhoda is having a "Today's Thrifty Treasures" every Monday. This is a sugar and creamer set I actually got at a yard sale on Thursday. Love the strawberry accent! And the cost.....$1

This is actually items from three different sales. The platter we found on Saturday for $2 (Tyler noticed the platter, thanks Ty). On the back it is stamped Watertown Lifetime Ware, Made in the USA. The white divided bowl and pink serving bowl came from the Thursday sale and are part of a set that cost....$5.

This is a set of Melmac Durawear dishes from Thursday, 8 dinner plates, 8 dessert plates, 8 cups & saucers, 8 bowls, a creamer & sugar w/lid, 8 glasses (1 has a small chip), a serving bowl & a divided dish, all for $5. I Love it!! Perfect for a picnic basket, BBQ or camping. The vintage tablecloth was purchased at my favorite store Sisters & Things for $15 and matches perfectly. (Tyler pointed out the tablecloth, again thanks Ty) The set is in perfect condition, except for the small chip on one glass.

I love this vintage rose picture. The yellow roses are in a silver vase. The cost....$1. Can you believe it?!!

At the same yard sale I got another rose picture in a silver frame for ...$2
Until later,
