Weekend Yard Sale Scores


Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!  We started our long weekend off with a few yard sales on Saturday.  I picked up this 4-piece Oneida tea set for $5.  It is in need of some cleaning, but I love the details of the teapots and even the blackish patina they've taken on.


Bought this large decorative wall plaque for $8. 


Ceramic rooster with wooden utensils $2


This little red latern was included with the the tea set.


And for the kids, the real score of the weekend - a Franklin dual court electronic arcade basketball game - $20.  Clayton, who accompanied us on our yard sale outing, was so tickled when Dave bought this.  We all have enjoyed our little family basketball competitions this weekend :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great finds! You kids are going to have a ball with that game. Once you've cleaned your tea set up it will be so pretty. I hope you have a special place for it to shine on display.

  11. Great finds. I'm always torn whether to clean silver I find at garage sales or not. I sort of like the dark patina and besides it will only get tarnished again right?

    BTW, I love the photo in your header. Very pretty colors.
