SPCA Yardsale Goodies Another Chandy

I am linking this post to Colorado Lady for Thrifty Thingie Thursday.

There were some great things at the local SPCA yardsale Saturday. So much so that I kept going back after loading my car twice.

Some of my great finds was an antique ironstone butter dish with liner for $2.00, an Atlas aqua canning jar with glass lid for 75 cents, a collection of candlesticks that I will be using for my seashell candlestick displays, a fibre optic Very large Easter egg with bunny inside in it's original box that was $39.00 new and I paid $2.00 for it and a large box of craft items that included an unused bottle of mod podge, a can of acrylic spray, 10 angel hair ribbon packages and over 30 packages of dazzle flex o mirror. The whole box of craft stuff was only $2.00.

My treasure though was the wrought iron chandelier with clay pots with the light fixture inside each one. Great items as I can change the flowers with the season. When I first saw it I thought the price tag read $30.00 so I asked the lady if that was right. No she said it was $3.00. Of course I said SOLD without trying to bring too much attention to my find. I am thinking of painting the whole thing white, but will think on it before I do.

That was one of the nicest sales I have ever attended. Everything was in sections, garden center, craft section, art and frame section, holiday section, linen section, household items and so on. I could have lingered all day as I have never seen so much in one sale like that before unless it was an auction.

Hope you found some great things last weekend. Looking forward to seeing your treasures. A lot of what I found I have listed on etsy.

  6. Thanks for visiting me today. I've enjoyed reading about your finds at the yard sale, what fun!

  7. What steals! Love the chandy.

  8. Such wonderful finds. Don't you just love it when you find a treasure and it is a steal. It always makes me feel the way Magellan must have felt when he discovered some new spice to bring back from the Orient.


  9. Your chandelier find is wonderful!! I really like the ironstone butter dish... the The holes in the bottom are interesting... is that some sort of cooling device?

  10. WOW you scored big time at this yard sale! Love the chandy and the ironstone butter dish.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  11. The moment I saw the chandy, I thought it would be wonderful white. Since it's garden-y, I'd be tempted to even age it with tan and ivory shades rubbed on too. I bet it will be fablous once it is hung and decorated!

  12. Good deals for a great cause!
    I wish you had linked up to the other Thrifty thursday posts. I would have seen you sooner.
    Love that you make trips to the car and come back for more. If I had a full size van or my old pickup I would never leave.

  13. I love what you found! I have a chandy in my gazebo I found in my son's dumpster when he was redoing his new house. I sprayed it, but I am thinking I could do flowerpots! Can't wait to give it a shot. Love the butter dish too!
    Thanks so much for following, and good luck in the drawing.
    Have a very blessed Easter, your gkids are darling!

  14. That chandelier is adorable, such possibilities. I have one of those butter dishes with/out the top and I honestly did not know it was a butter dish, I use it for a plant holder.
