Yard Sale And A Junkin Trip With My Buddy Beth

My friend Beth and I got to spend a girl’s day junkin’. Guess where we went? Yep, my favorite junk shop! We hit a few other places too. Beth made a haul.

shopping with Beth at my favorite junk shop

Beth didn’t want me to take her picture but I got her anyway…on the run. She bought the metal shopping cart which sure came in handy. Beth is a shop in Fairview, Tennessee, and a blog….Farm Fresh Vintage Finds. You may have heard of her. She’s an awesome furniture painter.

He always has a plan too when loading things in the truck.

treasures from my junkin trip

These are my finds. I fell in love with the pair of framed bird prints. Of course, the red drawer and the turquoise cups caught my eye too. My haul came to a total of $13. Oh yeah, I forgot that Beth ran off with my yellow shutter. It was on the bottom of the junk in the truck. I’ll be getting it later this week.

Yard Sale Finds

I ran upon a yard sale last Friday while taking a road detour. Fist yard sale I’ve been to in years. I shopped yard sales religiously when we lived in Florida. They have good stuff in Florida. I bought the orange metal saw case for $4.

paint by number yard sale find

The paint by number was 50 cents. I’ve never been a fan of paint by number but something about this one caught my eye.

vintage pyrex nexting bowls

The Pyrex nesting bowls were $1.50. Really. The mirror and nice frame were $3, total.

I got some good buys didn’t I. Tomorrow I have a painted furniture project and the big giveaway from Plaid. There will be 3 giveaways with a combined total of $800 of Plaid craft products in the mix! See you tomorrow.

  1. I wish I lived nearby to stop in and shop. I too love your hauls, and the great prices. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh my. How I wish I didn’t live so far from anywhere to shop antiques or garage sales! 45 miles to the nearest small town…but I have gorgeous views. Ah well.

  3. You got some awesome buys! I’ll take the Pyrex bowls ($2.50, please!) and the orange saw case is terrific. Love the frames/mirror, too. The round wood disc will become something fantastic – another cake platter/stand? I kinda like that paint by number, too – it sorta looks like an abstract painting!

  4. I’m down at the lake – I need to run to Butlers if I get the chance. He is the nicest man.

    That is a steal on those Pyrex bowls.

  5. Mr Butler sounds like a priceless gem! And the silver mirror and frame are to die for! You girls did good!

  6. Kathy – I am soooooo incredibly envious of your hauling trips —- I miss it soooo much bc I had to take a full time job…. blaaaaaahhhhhhh – Trust me – you are having alot more fun!
