I carried a watermelon
It has literally been YEARS since I hit a yard sale good enough to fill up the back of my van for $20.
Until this morning.
It was so good the kids and I bought as much as I could carry, came home and rested and then went back and bought more.
I didn't carry a watermelon but I did carry 40 lbs of china. A long way. I thought my hugely pregnant self might die. LOL
It is marked Steubenville. There is a complete service for 6. And it is BEAUTIFUL.
Plus some serving dishes.Big cereal sized bowls.
And a creamer and a sugar. Plus a few extra dishes. (It was probably a service for 8 at some point.)
I also picked up vintage baby clothes.
And old toddler pajamas.
A fun piece of vintage flannel.
A quilt. (Of course.)
An old baby blanket.
Vintage switchplate covers. Love these and I hardly ever find them.
More metal frames. (I will never pass those up again after I realized how darn hard they can be to come by.)
And vintage fisher price toys! The round one is a drum that Sammi loves.
FINALLY. A toy iron. A wolverine one at that. I have been looking for a toy iron since we finished the basement playhouse before Sammi was born.
More 1970's fisher price. Sammi is getting big enough to enjoy the pretend toys now.
A fun 1940's book.
And a new, but useful (hello decoupage!), doll clothes suitcase.
Plus some useful stuff for the new baby, toys for Jack, and books for all of us.
It's about darn time I had a really good yard sale haul. The only thing missing was Christmas stuff...
