Lori's Recent Yard Sale Finds

The last couple of Saturdays I went out to a few yard/garage sales. There are plenty of them around these days. In fact this weekend, my daughter's gated community are having one for all who will participate, so I may go again!!
Here are some of my finds:
Twin ceramic birds:

A set of 30 pamphlets on various Countries Around The World by the American Geographical Society [1959]- their covers were so colorful!

A small ceramic pink baby cradle:

A crocheted pillowcase:

Vintage Yahtzee and Bingo games:

A neat fold-up, on wheels, table - for my patio, I think?

A pair of ice skates:

All in all, some good finds.
(I'm saving a few for another post!)

LOVE the table! What a great find! Is that yard sale this weekend at Apple Valley Estates/Ranch up Lions Bald Mt. Rd in Sonora? I went to that one last year-- it was a fun one! I happened to be "up the hill" visiting my parents that weekend.

Actually Jill, it was last weekend in Seranno in El Dorado Hills, but that one sounds great! Maybe we can go!!

Heidi, thanks for stopping by my blog. Isn't funny that you knew in you mind what i was talking about with the "felt plates'.

Im enjoying all your retro fun stuff in this post. i remember making pom pom balls for my skates

You found so many fun things! Those birds are such a pretty shade of blue, and that little table is so perfect for a patio. Yard sale/flea market season is really cranking up now, and I can already tell that it's going to be a great summer!
