yard sailing

I went to the Eastern Kings Giant Yard sale yesterday, which isn't so much one big yard sale as it is a bunch of little yard sales spread out through the countryside. I spent the day driving around with my mom and sister, we hit most of the sites. I bought everything.

I needed something to corral the pile of shoes that are always at my door. This looks to be an old speaker, but it's hollowed out now. It needs a little TLC but it does the trick for now.

I've never felt the urge to wear mens ties but I love the embroidery on this. I think I'll wear it with a white shirt and high-waisted skirt.

Two soft comfy 80s tops.

This atomic scale needs some cleaning up as well but it's in great shape otherwise. It's still accurate! It's hard to photograph but there are little gold sparkles all over it.

Magazines, ranging from 1948 to 1966. I can't get over that Valentine's Day cover. Chatelaine is a Canadian womens magazine that's still going on strong today. I've never heard of Look but the theme of this issue intrigued me: The American Woman, in 1966. I'm looking forward to the articles in that.

This little brown jug will probably serve as a cookie jar for me

Someone was selling off their cat collection. My favourite is the teak guy up front.

Normally these baskets are for holding fruit in the kitchen, but I'm short on bathroom storage.

I need more chairs like I need a hole in the head but I love the pattern on this one. So comfy too!

I don't think I've ever had such a great yard sale haul, and I didn't spend more than five dollars on any single item!
