New Finds

On the way home Saturday William passed a church yardsale. He came home, picked me up and we headed back. On the way to the yardsale we pass a auction. We hurry up at the yardsale where we picked up bookshelves, books, videos and a couple of items the son in laws collect which will be Christmas gifts. Then we go to the auction. There was a secretary that I loved and bid on till it got to $40 and I stopped. William kept bidding and won at $55.00 I love it! I bid on 2 antique end tables and won them both for $30.00. William bid on a couple of boxes and we finished out the auction spending $92.00. Pretty good for these don't you think?

I love buy and go to palace that they are selling second hand stuff. Never know what kind of treasure you'll find.
On your last picture. My sister in law Faith bought a table like that for her bed and breakfast.

Golly, Peggy you two did really well with that $92.00 I think. I love the drop leaf table. I have one similar that was my grandmothers. Sandy

Great deals, Peggy! That spinet desk looks almost exactly like one my husband has up in our bedroom. I have one downstairs that is painted a beautiful sage green with gold detail. For some interesting reading, look up the history of spinet desks online.

What excellent finds! My hubby and I used to go to sales all the time but there haven't been that many up here in the hills. I love that drop leaf! Whoo-hoo!

Wow great finds. Terry would have seen the sales and been glad that I wasn't with him to want to stop. What a great guy you have.
