And then yesterday, I got a call from my friend Karla. She knew I was in Baltimore for the marathon, but if I made it home before 4pm, I should head on over to a really great yard sale. Normally, you really can't expect to find much at a yard sale late in the day on a Saturday, but this was not your typical yard sale. It was actually more of a barn sale at the home of the gentleman who owns our local antique mall. There was plenty of furniture to choose from, the prices were good and the seller was more than willing to negotiate. Here are just a few of the pieces that made their way home with me.
This is probably my favorite piece. It's a vanity, but I think it would also make a great desk. It has the most wonderful legs!
Love this beautiful antique dresser. Reminded me of Cassie @ Primitive & Proper. She's always finding great dressers.
Plus the dresser had a matching vanity. And yes, mirrors too!
I bought five of these chairs. They will be so cute with fresh new fabric.
The paint on this table is pretty chippy, but the enamel top is in great shape.
This headboard and footboard set with rails was only $3.00. How could I resist?
This is a really nice solid bookcase.
This little chair is really cute and he threw it in for free!
And another curvy mirror, also free.
I came home with some fun small things too, including some cool rusty barn door hinges that reminded me of Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors.
In total, I ended up with four SUV's full of stuff and spent less than $100!
And there are at least two pieces that I can't stop thinking about. I think I'll stop by the antique mall tomorrow for a little chat with the owner!
Are you stocking up for winter?
