I can barely begin to express what a fabulous thrift weekend I had. At one point on Saturday morning I had so many finds that I seriously had to take some deep breaths. I had about an hour straight of find after find and I became really light headed. I mean you can only be on a natural high for so long before something has to give. I took it slower but still continued to find things. I left this rummage sale on a complete and utter thrift high. It was probably one of the best rummage sales that I have ever been to. Ever.
It all began with some Vera. Notice the person pricing wrote "new designer."
This delicious Wool Blanket was only $3.00. I've tried to cut myself off buying any more wool blankets. I even admitted to Dave that I had a problem. I told him that I was through with wool blankets. The day I told him that, I brought home TWO wool blankets. I think the reason that I constantly fall off the wagon is that I am teased by unique colors and patterns.The first two culprits were pink and white and this one of course is an Autumn yellow that makes you crave a bowl of soup with some warm Udi's bread. Bliss.
The funny thing about this rummage sale is that I started in the book area. It's usually where I can make the most money. I spent maybe one minute there and realized that the books were not worth my time. I went over to the linens followed by the households area. The items that I showed here are only the icing on the cake. I only thrifted until noon on Saturday because my brother and family came to visit for the day. Yet I felt completely satisfied. Especially after finding an old Longaberger basket with lid for $1.00 at another yard sale.
Cerys and I went out on Sunday and again and found great items up to the very last sale. It was my day of sterling silver. I can't tell you how many dreams I have of uncovering a box of sterling silver and gold. But even on the second day, at the end of the day I found inexpensive sterling. It just goes to show that valuable items can be found at any point in the course of a garage/yard sale. You just have to look for them.
I hope that there was good luck to be had by everyone. Did you thrift during the weekend? What did you find? Don't forget to pop on over to Southern Hospitality to check out her party too.
