Great haul at the GS today. Over 60 items and I only spent $20. Most I spent was $2 for each teapot. I think my favorite find of the day was the butterflies for a quarter each! I got the box of 16 bud vases for $1

WOW!! What a HAUL!! I LOVE everything!! So what do you have eplanned for these treasures - anything yet? I especially like the teapots and the cups and saucers. You did well on the smaller vases, too. I cannot find the smooth white ones around here. I may have to paint the insides of my clear ones white. You had Christmas in July. Congrats!!

I'll be doing more plate flowers and totems and the teapots/cups, will be totems and bird feeders. I want to do an Alice in Wonderland themed garden.

No, probably searched 15 sales...started the hunt at 6:30 this morning and quit about noon. Only down side to the day was I didn't find any beads, I REALLY want to make one of those sparklers, they are too cute!

Wow! Love the apple & morning glory teapots! The butterfly plaques are so cute & almost ready for the garden(I would add a wire so they don't break when the twine goes. You are going to be busy too!! Jan

The purple floral tea cup is my favorite, the set of 3 is marked Nippon, and the girl tried to sell me a set of Noritake, I told her I didn't have the heart to use that stuff in the garden.

Jan-exactly what I said when I found them. They are very heavy and I was surprised they used twine!

Kathy-The spout is adorable, that's what caught my eye :)

Boy did you luck out! I see lots of plate flowers and totems in your future. lol! I love the butterfly plaques. Those teapots and teacups and saucers are real winners. It is hard to find something like that around here at a reasonable price. TFS!

RE: Grand Total $20 :)

Those were my kind of sales! Less than $20 for all that stuff!!!!Makes me want to go right out and buy more things!Lol-That's MY problem. I tell myself "you don't need more stuff", but if I let myself go, then I HAVE to buy, because I see the potential of the pieces.....

RE: Grand Total $20 :)

RE: Grand Total $20 :)

You must live in a large city, we do good to have 4 GSs in one weekend around here. I love the teacups and everything was so well priced. I've tried to cut back, I've got too many projects in the works right now.
