Today's Yard Sale Finds

I hit three yard sales today and found a few 'new to me' treasures.
First off I found this BRAND NEW purse with the tag still on it.
As you can see it was regularly $40 and I got it for $3. Woot! Woot!


I paid $1 for this set of 3 metal trays. These are so going to meet up with some spray paint soon.



One sale had tons of Goose Berry Patch cookbooks. I limited myself to just three at $1.50 each.




I found this adorable twin quilt for my granddaughters bed...$5 for it and a pillow sham to match.
And these three prints were $1 each. I probably will be painting the frames black and maybe covering the mats with some scrapbook paper. I may even change out the prints, who knows where a project like this might take me.
Not bad for about 1 hour of my time and $16.50.

I love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. I'd have bought them all! I just found you from Never Growing Old's Over 40 Blog Hop. I'm enjoying visiting your blog.

Hello Connie! Great finds! I'm jealous, our yard sales around here this year have been quite lacking.:( Also, I love the flowers you made, they are so cute! I was dying to see what you thought of Jake and Vienna breaking up! As soon as I saw it on TV I thought of you! I think it's hilarious! Have a great weekend!
:)

Connie, you hit the jackpot! Great finds. I do not own a single Gooseberry Patch cookbook. I so wish I could find some that inexpensive.. Way to go!

Dropping by from 40 and Over websites. Don't ya love yardsales? I'd go every weekend but my husband hates the idea. So I make do with the secret stop into the Goodwill store.
I love the quilt. Love anything that even remotely hints at a dragonfly.
Blessed weekend!
