There is a very cool blog I visit quite often.
A month or so ago one of her posts got my attention quick. The entire post was about thrifting. In particular, she had allowed herself $40 to spend in various thrift shops and she documented it all in pictures. This really got my gears to turning and then, as I am prone to do, I went on to something else. I know. I’ve seen me do it!
So Saturday, quite by accident I went out to wash my car late morning and as (my ) luck would have it I must have passes no less than five yard sales on my road alone! Also as (my) luck would have it, I had ten bucks in my purse. But on my way back home from the car wash I could not stand it.
I drove by the first two. Their driveways were in plain view of the street and I did not see any furniture. The next one I actually got out of my Jeep, but found nothing interesting.
The last one was where I hit the jackpot.
I know. What in the world kinda jackpot can you hit for $10?
The kind where it’s almost noon on a Saturday and BLAZING hot in Asheville North Carolina. They were so ready to through in the towel!!!
I’ll help y’all with that.
I spotted this from the Jeep.
I don’t know about where y’all live, but trophies are hard to come by around here.
I just love the design in the silver!
Next I spotted this tucked back behind some deck furniture.
I guess it’s a garden stool. Big Daddy thinks it came from a chicken coop.
I think it’s cool, where ever it came from!
Don’t hate me.
I honestly think it was the time of day.
Lastly, this adorable toy chest!
I love those little feet!
If you are doing the math as we go you already know this was my biggest purchase.
And I do not have a clue what I am going to do with it.
So that’s my $10 yardsale challenge.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever scored for $10 bucks or less at a yard sale?

I can’t wait to see!
