Nearly 50 sales yields Saturday's Fabulous finds.

There were roughly 50 yard or garage in our valley on Saturday.  Something lots of people look forward to, and is sponsored by the rotary club which is an annual event.   They publish a map in the paper and well it is just great.  I hit the ones first that I knew would have antiques.  I really think I scored on Saturday.  Here are some pictures of the vintage stuff I found.  My daughter and I have been so excited for this event to come on St. Patrick's Day, I could hardly sleep.  We took her pick up truck, because she wanted to find some large photography props.

I loved this little gem of a print,  So me and my studio!

A darling pair of porcelain lamps and the seal is still on them.  I love that! They were a steal at
$1.00
This great little pair of wall sconces (shelves) $3.00  They seem to be quite old!
This lovely wall plaque was $1.00, and I don't think it is Vintage, just vintage look.  I love still!
Sugar shaker and single s&p shakers were $1.50
This silver dish/tray and the bundle of cut-work dresser scarfs were total $5.00  These dresser scarfs are in such great condition and there are 3 sizes.
I spotted this pie server and had to have it along with some other vintage jewelry.  This sweet cut-work doilies were in the bundle with the dresser scarves.  Total here was about $3.00
Another silver tray! $1.00
yielded this for .25 cents
This was a quarter too.  I was tickled to find some vintage Easter pieces.  
Isn't she sweet.  She use to be holding something and my guess is that it is "little bo peep"
She was  50 cents
And last but not least this vintage porcelain bunny.  He was $1.00
I am tickled pink for all my finds and for so little money.  Now this is the way to buy vintage, before it gets marked up at the Antique mall!  Yippy!  Have a great week all!

Love your sweet finds, Michele! We only had two sales going on here on Saturday--it was really rainy--but I did find some treasures! Love that sweet little girl you found!

Wishing you a beautiful day, dear friend!

Oh, Milady Michelle! I have thoroughly enjoyed my inspiring visit her with all your Special Somethings! I am stepping into the world of ATC and art journals and all things collage. Been collecting for years but have been too busy with work to do much with all the "someday I'll use it" supplies. I have joined you and hope to visit often to take a slice of your inspiration into my own artistic endeavors. Thanks so much for visiting at The Writer's Reverie and introducing yourself.

Joy!
Kathy

Oh wow, I wish we had something like that! You scored big time on everything, I love the lamps. You asked about the water slide decals, I print them on blank water slide decal paper. My side bar with my popular posts has the link to making decals.

Love the lamps! I have a fashion print just like that but in a cherry colored frame! Love those prices, so much better than antique malls and even thrift!

Just found your blog and what a great garage sale day! I especially love the little wall plaque with the cherubs- so sweet! And those shelves are great, too...and the lamps....I am afraid if we went garage saling together we would fight over the same items :)
