Black & White Toile Yard Sale Goodness

This past weekend, Dave and I hit yard sale magic finding lots of wonderful buys! We left the kids sleeping at home with my Mom (major benefit of having a live-in Mee-maw!) and were able to browse multiple sales before heading off to the farmers market. Saturday mornings have kind of turned into our little date time - time spent together doing something we both enjoy - yard sales!


Black & White Toile Platter and Plates - $10

My absolute favorite buy of the weekend, these black & white toile plates!  My heart went pitter patter when I saw them.  I can't believe no one bought them even at the seller's original price of $15.  We also got a FREE Elefun game for the kids with this purchase. 


Black & White Toile Platter


Black & White Rooster Toile Plates

Love, love these plates!
Glass Hexagonal Drink Dispenser - $5

This was also another can't believe we found this buy - a glass, hexagonal drink dispenser still in its box.  A few weeks ago I was actually going to buy something similar at World Market for $20.  Glad I waited! 


Other buys from the weekend - A cute little white teapot - $2


Various glass containers

Blue Mason jar with lid - .25
2 glass jars (the smaller one has the initial M) - .50 each
Glass jar with snap lid closure - FREE! 


Star candlestick holder - .50
Decorative wall plaque - $2


Rodale's Great Garden Shortcuts hardcover book - $1


FREE!

As we were heading back home, we made a quick stop by a yard sale in a nearby neighborhood.  It happened to be a lady who I had bought a handmade basket from at a yard sale last year!  She remembered us (and my love for baskets!) and offered to give me the wicker table and large basket for FREE!  One of the table legs is slightly damaged but it will be perfect for outside to sit my potted herbs on.
