~Rummage Sale This Morning!~

A busy morning is what I had...I had Sydney and Alex to put off to school, feed them breakfast, remind them to brush their teeth, brush Alex's hair. I had to have Sydney to school by 8:50 and Alex to hers by 9:30 sharp as she was going on a field trip! So after I dropped Sydney off I noticed a church on the way to the school was having a rummage sale and I thought hmmmmm I have to stop there after dropping Alex off:)

This is what I found and all for $5.45...a Santa cookie cutter for .5, two Little House on the Prairie books for .10 a piece for Sydney. For Alex and Samantha two story books for .10 a piece also two books for me:) I found the quilted placemat that everything is laying on for .10 I'll use it on my table outside for the summer:) Next the electric pineapple candle which is brass but should I just paint it black to update it? Also the pineapple wooden spoon:) Loved the flag tile for .60 don't know what I'll do with it yet though. The most I paid is for the cross stitch which was $2.50 they had a whole table full of cross stitched items but I like this one the best.
Here is a better pic of it which I'll coffee dye and frame in black for a shelf sitter it's very small.

Also found a 100% wool jacket, creme colored for .50 to cut up for a pennys:0

Well, I have to run time to pick up Alex...have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Great finds Rondell,
    I like church rummage sales. Always a lot to look at and go through. I noticed we were having some yard sales around me today, but I didn't get a chance to go to them. Looking forward to the weeks ahead!

  6. I painted my brass light flat black and it turned out great and looks very prim. Thats what I would do! Great finds!!

  7. That makes me so ready to yard sale!! I will have to check the paper to see if there are any this weekend. Thanks for sharing..have a nice weekend. Julie

  8. GREAT finds! :) Wish I could have come with ya to join the fun!

  9. Love all your finds today. I think I may hit some yard sales tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be nice here in Alabama so I should find some good ones.

  10. Now that's quite a haul, Rondell! I can't wait to see the "after" photos :)

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend. Somehow I think you'll be busy...

  11. Great stuff! I had that pineapple candle light at one time. Brass is colonial but pewter is more colonial. Maybe you could find that kind of spray paint sometime.

    Have fun painting your birthday present!!

  12. Great finds! Church rummage sales are the Best!

  13. You always find the best goodies! I went to my first garage sale of the year today and it all junk. Oh well, at least they are getting started. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, it's supposed to be nice here again tomorrow and then change back by Sunday. At this point, I'll take whatever I can get! Dawn

  18. Hi Rondell,
    Great finds that you got at the rummage sale. I want to a basement sale yesterday...I had never heard of that before, but it was a good sale...just in the basement instead of the garage.
    Love the pineapple candle.
    hugs, Cindy

  19. Everything is great....and what bargains!! You can't buy anything for 10 cents anymore!!! So glad you got some great deals!

  20. I would say you did really well...great prices too, Rondell! Love those Little House books!


  21. What wonderful finds today!

  22. You found some great items, Rondell. I just love Little House on the Prairie and those were some of my favorite books to read to my dd when she was little.
    I also can't wait to see the finished pictures of your step back cupboard. It's going to look great and don't worry, you're not going to ruin it! There's no such things as mistakes, just opportunities to make it more prim. :)
    I just refinished my batroom vanity and posted pic's if you want to see.
    Hugs & blessings to you~ Birgit

  23. Wow Rondell! You found some great stuff! I'd love to find a sale like that around here.
    The cupboard Stush made for you is simply awesome! However you paint it, I'm sure it will look great.
    Can't wait to see it finished and primmed up.
    Sorry I haven't visited in a while. Our first farmers mkt. is May 2nd, and we've been so busy.
    Take care!

  24. Thank you for the kind words about our old house. Sure looking forward to making some changes in the near future - starting with those kitchen cupboards! I always love to see what you find at the thrift shops, there aren't any close to me! Just waiting for garage sales to get going around here. Have a great day! Dawn

  25. Hey Rondell,

    Have a great rest of the week! :)
