Surprise $10 Yard Sale Find...

Today as I was driving from the A & P with the snacks I had just purchased for Michael's baseball game, I must have driven by about a dozen or so yard sales. Evidently the town where the game was being held was  having a town-wide yard sale this weekend. Dag I thought, I knew I had to get to the 10 am game of which I was already late for.

But mama does deserve at least one guilty pleasure now and then right? So as I was driving I noticed someone selling a set of end tables exactly like ones I had seen on Wednesday at the Bucks County Designer House. I made the quick U-bie and sped back to the house where I spotted the tables. I got out of the car with just my wallet in hand, not even knowing how much was in it, and walked towards the lady behind the table. When I inquired about how much the tables were, all I could think to myself was...please please please don't say anything over $10. I thought even if I only have 5 dollars I can give her the money in good faith that I will be back to pay the rest and collect the tables. "Ten dollars for both" she replied. I opened up my wallet and saw a five immediately with a bunch of ones behind it. Yippee I had it...I had $10 on me so I bought the two tables.



It wasn't until I began shooting these pictures that I realized they were not a matched set.







Hey as far as I am concerned that just adds to their charm! The first thing Mr. Rosemary Lane asked was where they were going to go. I'm not sure but I'm thinking maybe Grace's room. It would be nice for her to have nightstands that somewhat matched. I do have to give it a little thought over the next few days and poke around the Internet for some ideas. But bottom line, I think these are pretty cool and only cost me $10!

So woohoo for me!!!

  1. Great buy! You get the award for the "bargain of day" at that price!
    Solid wood too....must be from "the old days"! LOL! Isn't it weird that people will pay hundreds for a matching set of cardboard when they can get such great furniture, cheap at sales and Goodwill type stores. I can't wait to see what you do with them! Since you bought it "out of town" you can now tell people it is imported furniture! Have a great weekend!

  2. 10 bucks! What a find! And like you I love that they don't match! I'm getting a hand-me-down rocker from my mom and it has different spindles on both sides! So cool! Can't wait to see what you do with them!
