Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was HOT. And filled with yard sales!
This first yard sale buy was something Dave bought for me. Actually the seller insisted he buy it for me! Not only that but she insisted I try it on right over my clothes because the brown and pink colors of the dress would look so good on me. Kind of awkward, but I tried it on. And I said "yes!" to this Molly New York yard sale dress for $5!
I loved the detail on the doors of this nightstand and the drop down handles reminded me of our trash to treasure armoire. I have already started painting the nightstand in the same Hush White color of the armoire.
Leaf plate - FREE!
The seller of the nightstand agreed to give us this leaf plate for FREE.
A large basket $2
Four cobalt blue glass containers - $2 for all
Bolts of check fabric (for all the sewing I don't know how to do!) - $1 from the dress lady
Small mirror - $1
Large shell - .25
Books for Ashleigh - .25 each
Dave also bought a circa 1980-something Nintendo system with games for $5. I think the seller misread Dave's nostalgia over playing Mike Tyson Punch Out and Super Mario as being interested in actually buying the system. She was so nice and sweet it was kind of hard to say no at that point. Dave did have a little buyers remorse when we got home. It only came with one controller and while it worked it kept freezing up. Our neighbor, who is into all things electronic, suggested a can of compressed air to clean out the dust. The air seemed to do the trick, and Dave and the kids played Super Mario all weekend!
