At the yard sales this week I did not buy too many goodies. I did however come across these two adorable Xmas reindeer stuffed animals that I could not resist buying. I only paid $0.50 cents for the both of them, a great deal! I also bought some aromatherapy diffuser oils (full bottles) for $0.25 cents each. I bought an Exotic scented oil and a Papaya scented oil that smells wonderful.
This week I went to sooooo many community yard sales, there was a yard sale everywhere I turned! -Whooohoo!! ..This week I got a bit of a sun burn, but it was well worth it, I found some great stuff! Let me tell you about some of my yard sale finds this week.
So, first up I found this awesome handmade metal ornament by Karen Rossi. I have a few others to her collection. I love her metal handmade ornaments, they are so unique. It retails for about $50-$60, I only paid $1.00 for this ornament. It’s called “Celebrate.” If you like Karen Rossi’s ornaments you can check out her website here http://www.karenrossi.com
While I was walking from Yard Sale to Yard Sale at a huge community of Yard Sales, I came across a house that had out a box of stuff for free. Inside I found a box of high heels that were in awesome condition, and just my size! Divalicious!! ..Pictured below are some blinged out silver rhinestone high heels. The picture does not do these heels justice, they are so diva. I will be wearing them to my brothers wedding.
Here are the other two other pairs of shoes that I picked up. I ended up getting a sunburn on my chest, but it was oh so worth it because I got some awesome high heels for free! -Oh, I found the little toe ring too, $.25.
I found a bunch of other neat stuff, but most adorable was this fluffy pink and white winter jacket for my fur baby Priscilla. I picked up this pet jacket for $2.00 and the lady told me she paid $80.00 for the jacket. Doesn’t Priscilla look sweet in her new jacket?
All in all, I found some awesome treasures this week! I can’t wait for next weekend to arrive.
Did any of you find any good deals at your local Yard Sales? Drop a comment and tell me what you found!!
This weekend I found some dynamite stuff at the local yard sales!
I found a really cute hand made wooden light up Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas decoration. They were asking $10.00 for him, I got it for $8.00. Mr Rudolph is going to look sooooo good between my light up Christmas Trees this year!
SUPER EXCITING FIND AHEAD!!
..Ok, so it was late in the day and many yard sales were already packing up. I was at the last yard sale for the day, digging through some bagged up stuff, and wile digging I saw some hot lavender purple down near the bottom of the bag. I dug down more and pulled out this gorgeous handbag. I immediately noticed it was a Kathy Van Zeeland handbag! What a find.
I played it cool, and asked the lady what she wanted for it, and to my surprise the lady said “its free you can have it, I don’t like the handbag because the zipper inside it broken”. Yes you heard me right, I scored this awesome handbag for FREE! My jaw hit the ground. I had a huge smile on my face as I thought to myself that this is a $120.00 Kathy Van Zeeland handbag, and that this lady could easily have fixed the zipper. The zipper just came off track, so it was not hard to fix at all. The handbag is in excellent condition and I’m so happy that I was able to score this gorgeous DIVA-LICIOUS Kathy Van Zeeland handbag. I have two other Kathy Van Zeeland handbags, one is bright pink (of course), and the other is a smaller darker purple Kathy Van Zeeland purse.
Last but not least I was able to find a little something for my fur baby Blacks. I could not resist picking the this nice soft bed for my oldest fur baby. They wanted $2.00 and I picked it up for $1.00. By the looks of Blacks all snuggled up in her new bed, I think she approves of my yard sale find!
My fiance was so happy with his little yard sale find too! – He found this little exploding “mouse trap” house.
The walls on this little wooden house blow apart when you open the front door. When I was at the yard sale (where I found my Kathy Van Zeeland hand bag), I walked over and opened the door (like the fool I am), I just couldn’t help myself. Then, ..I got the shock of my life!!!
When my fiance saw how badly it had scared me, he just had to have it. He asked what they wanted for it, and the guy gave it to him for a handshake. The price was right, but the fact that it scared the shit out of me, was …(for him) …PRICELESS!! Now he has plans to prank everyone he can with his new toy. *LOL*
I’m so pleased with my yard sale finds this week. I’m excited for next week.
Did any of you go out this weekend to any yard sales? Did you find any treasures? Let me know in the comments section below.
Every Saturday morning I wake early, pour some fresh coffee int my favorite pink mug, and head out with my mom to hunt down the deals at neighborhood yard sales.
Today I found these cute high heels. The asking price was $5.00, but I bargained them down to $3.00. I’m such a bargain girl when it comes to yard sales. No matter what the price, I’m always try to get a better deal.
These shoes are going to look awesome with my summer dresses and shorts.
