Yard Sale Score!

Good Tuesday Morning!  It is bright, sunny and unseasonably warm in SW Virginia today and I am loving it!  Did you know that last Thursday it snowed a couple of inches here then the very next day got up to 70 degrees??  Crazy!  Snow boots to Swim suits in less than 24 hours!

Saturday morning I needed to go to the dreaded W*almArt to get a few things and passed a gigantic yard sale on the way, so of course I stopped.  It was being run as a fund raiser for the Alzheimer's Assoc.  I don't know if I have told you my mother in law has Alzheimer's.  It is such a cruel disease.  I would not wish this on my greatest enemy.

I am glad I stopped, because I found so much stuff that I just couldn't live without!  
A huge bag of embroidery thread, all brand new.

These 1950's cake toppers, they're not blurry in real life!

A huge bag of plastic baby cake decorating doo dads

A huge bag of Christmas cupcake pics.

A beautiful amber glass cake plate, a flow blue pitcher and the cutest little Peanuts tin,  Do you glimpse that Kiss item in the back??? It's a Kiss Christmas ornament!  And that little change purse is just like one I had when I was a little girl and kept my milk and ice cream money in for school.

Like I needed more cookbooks!

yeah, I bought 3 more...

My favorite find!!  Aren't these sooo pretty!  From Woolworth's, still has the price on the box!

More fun ornaments..

I already have one of these, I have no idea why I need another!

and a box full of Christmas doo dads to use in my crafting!

As you can see, I scored!!!!  For the whole lot she wanted $5.00...I gave her 20.00... it's for a very worthy cause! 

Hope everyone has a fantastic day!!!

Blessings

Loads of wonderful goodies. Finding a bag of floss like that would have made my day! Really pretty cake stand, too. And all for a good cause.

What an awesome, diverse array of finds from just one yard sale. I'd be pleased as all get out if I found half that number of things in a month (or even a season!). Congrats on all of these wonderful finds - the Christmas ornaments and cupcake picks are amongst my fave pieces in this huge lot of goodies.
