Yard Sale Saturday (5-15)

There are definitely bargains to be had. All it takes is an hour or two on a weekend morning and you can have a treasure hunt in your own "backyard". Here are the treasures I found this Saturday. A couple of plant pots. One is terracotta and the other is pottery ($.50 each).

A large Tupperware canister with lid. These are great for storing bulk flours and other baking items. I can never have enough of them ($.25).

A dozen wide mouth canning jars ($3). I am still kicking myself for getting rid of all my jars when we moved. What was I thinking? Now I get to collect them all again.

Last but not least, I found this groovy cotton tunic top ($1). It is embroidered and covered in tiny sequins. Someone in Bangladesh put a lot of work into hand embellishing this top. I will really enjoy wearing it.

This is a close-up of the inside (wrong side) of the top.
You can see it is all hand stitched.

Total spent on this day's bargains? $5.25.

I just saw you're in Dallas. That's where my daughter and grandkids I know what you mean. Was there in July a few years back. Almost melted. LOL
