Best Yard Sale Scores to Date!

Well hello yard sale season!!  This was a few weeks ago, on what my husband and I like to refer to as THE BEST YARD SALE DAY EVER!!

We pulled up to a house and saw tables and tables of glassware, and in the front that beautiful red hostess serving bowl shown in the far left of the photo below.  Then my daughter spotted the pink daisy casserole in the stand... and well lets just say we found a few more treasures to add.

I offered $30 for everything you see in the photo.  Everything on the right is butterfly gold, then there are two pink gooseberry pieces, a red fridgie, carafe...everything in great shape!  The guy said his Mom used to have an antique booth, but everything had been in boxes for years.  I think he knew I was asking a very cheap price, but he needed to get rid of some stuff and was willing to let it go.


A close up of the daisy in the stand :-)  My daughter, who is 8, has already claimed this as hers!

And at another sale that day two MINTY butterprint bowls... $15 total... I had the 401 already, just need the 404 for a complete set!

Yay!  Yard sale season!!
