More Saturday Treasures

This is what we've been dealing with here in Boise.  Cloudy skies with lots of rain for days on end. Not good weather for yard sales, so I was so pleased to wake up to clearer weather on Saturday. I was on the road by 8:00 a.m. after picking up my mom anticipating some fun finds.  Typically, our husbands are with us, but they had other plans, which means we buy what we want!!
.

           I spotted this lamp with a $10.00 price tag and liked it's leather lamp shade, color, design and uniqueness.  It is taller than a regular table lamp and gives some added height to a side table downstairs.  Plus, I got it for $5.00!



 This candle holder is attractive and I thought it would look good on  my mantle.  It also had a $10.00 price tag, but after bargaining, I got it for $5.00.  Then I went looking for a candle to go with it and ended up with this pretty teal and butterscotch one for 25 cents.
After seeing this plate, I had to have it for my plate holder in the dining room.  It is a sweet picture of two sisters and says at the top, "Sisters are Blossoms."  Great price at $1.00.

Another find for $3.00 and I don't even know what to call it.  I thought it would add character somewhere in my house.  It has four drawers that open up, I have it on our landing right now at the bottom of the stairs.  Not sure if it will stay there, but I'll find a place, anyway, I really like it.
These finials were only $1.00.  Had a store tag on it for originally $29.00 and then a 50% mark down on that price so $1.00 was a steal! I thought I'd put it away for a future project.  I'd like to add some drapes or curtains downstairs and it would dress up a rod after adding stain.
As you can see it was a successful yard sale morning.  Had a good time with my mom, lots of laughing and enjoying one another's company.

I love all your great finds you posted here but I have to be honest!!!! I love the storm the best and wish we had it going on here too. We love a nice, loud, thunderstorm. I know, I'm weird.

Great finds! I never seem to have much luck at yard sales, so I avoid them. Maybe I should give it another try... And just so you know, I tagged you in my post today, so now you have to read it and then get busy!!!
