This is the time of year when people usually start having yard sales.
This standing lamp in our living room once had a $5 price tag on it at a yard sale.
I asked the owner if she'd accept $3 and she did! It's in perfect condition, is heavy, and has made a nice addition to our home.
If someone went room-to-room in our house, they'd find that almost everything here was thrifted.
It doesn't look like a rag tag house, though. Luckily, I have a pretty good eye for good quality things.
Many yard sale items can be found in the back yard, too.
For instance, his wrought iron table and chairs set was a yard sale purchase. It was $20 for the set. That day I had a total of $16 on me and the man managing the sale accepted it!
The lovely lady below, found near the fountain, was an estate sale purchase.
She comes out every spring to greet the flowers!
This year, of course, there probably will be no spring yard sales.
Everyone is just trying to survive as best they can.
It's true that I really miss estate and yard sales as well as thrift store shopping.
