Yard Sale Treasures

I only picked up a few yard sale treasures this weekend.  At one of our first stops, we picked up a 3-tier folding, metal serving tray and lamp for $6.

The serving tray

Floral pattern on the lamp shade

A rhinestone pin for $1. 
So I can add some bling to my projects!

This very dusty wooden pedestal stand was in a FREE box.  
With a little cleaning up, I think it would look quite nice with some white shells and starfish. 

And this old wooden porch chair for $2.
I have an entryway project in mind for this old beauty!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sharing these yard sale treasures with:


  1. Mary Ellen,
    You got some super duper treasures...luv the serving tray and that FREE wooden bowl!


  2. You found so much great stuff! I especially love the tray and the old chair.


  3. Love the free box items! And that's a great price for the chair.

  4. I may be drooling over that serving tray...I'm just saying!

  5. What fabulous finds! Love your idea for shells and starfish in the wooden bowl. And for free!!! And before I forget, the shoes you found were ADORABLE!

  6. Really nice finds!!! I love the lamp!

  7. If you like garage sales, you may also like listing your stuff for sale online on It's totally free – no commissions, no fees. Just like regular yard sale, but it runs forever.

  8. You found some great stuff. The three tiered stand really caught my eye. I love the delicate cut-work in the metal...very pretty.

  9. Great finds! I recently picked up (not free) a similar wood stand thingy. I'll have to add an updated photo on my blog, but here's the original post

  10. Great stuff! I can so see that pedestal painted and filled with shells. Love the lamp too!
