Yard Sale – SCORE!

It was an unusual yard sale day.
Normally I’ll go yard-saling by myself or with some girlfriends. But today I grabbed my husband.
We only went to a few.
He found his favorite garden tool.
I got some great succulent plants and a cool, old cooler (my imagination went wild with what I can do with this beauty!)
Who can beat $2 succulents?
And a $1 apron?
$2 salad bowl (the bowl I’ve used for years just cracked in half!)
A $2 cooler on wheels – for summer fun.
We’ll be planting this $5 maple tree in our front yard.
One of our favorite trees at the house where we lived for 10 years, was a yard sale tree.  
A whoppin’ 75-cents!
What has been your favorite yard sale find this year?  And do you ever score on plants or trees?

(If you have minute, check out Rhoda’s Treasure Hunting.  Really neat stuff!)

  1. I haven't found any great yard sales this year, but I am always on the lookout. I truly need to pay more attention.

    My best find ever? A $300 playhouse that I picked up for $25.00 and after all 3 of my kids, my cousin is now using it for HER three kids. It's been in my family now for 17 years. Not too shabby.

  2. Love your little treasures, especially the succelents.
    Since we've moved into our new diggs, I've haven't had time to go treasure hunting but you've inspired me, so this weekend that's my mission!

  3. I love that salad bowl and old cooler. Great stuff. So far this year, I was able to get a pair of old ice skates that I plan to use in a winter wreath. And, my son got a scooter – something he had been wanting.

  4. I got some irises, and another plant with blue flowers at a garage sale. They seem to be doing well so far, if I can just keep my 2-year-old from stepping on them. Your maple tree is beautiful, and a great deal!

  5. Score!

  6. I haven’t been able to get to any yard sales yet this year. Seeing your great finds makes me even more eager to do so!

    I’m also planning to have one of my own. Every cent will go towards the cost of the adoption. Now I just need to get my act together…!!

  7. Wow, what a blessing God bestowed on you! I have never found plants at a yard sale. Very cool!

  8. I’ve never shopped a yard sale! Maybe when my kids get older I’ll have to check them out. I had no idea people sold plants at yard sales, either. Guess I’ve been living under a rock :)

  9. Wow! Did you and your hubby score!!!
    What a fun morning you both had, you have definitely inspired me to go out next weekend to see what treasures I can bring home :))

  10. WOWzers–you did score some good (and useful) finds! I've never been to yard sales that sold plants or anything like that–wish there were more like those around here.

    Now I've got the yard sale bug…

  11. Wow, we must have similar taste, because I LOVE everything you found! That cooler is fantastic, I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
    My favorite find this year, so far, has been 2 chairs for my kitchen table that we bought for $7.50 each to replace some broken ones. Not that fun, but practical!

  12. WoW!!!

    Awesome finds, Sandy!

    BTW, I’m a friend of emilymcd – been following your blog and I love it. Thank you for sharing so many wonderful posts!
