First Neighborhood sale of the season and More

I love this unique recipe box $1
 
Finally, a neighborhood yard sale.  There isn't much vintage in these newer housing developments, but I always manage to find some.  Each item came from a different sale.

25 cents for this adorable tin
Found this beautiful table cloth for 50 cents
Another for 50 cents



 
My favorite find, a Hazel Alta Ivy mixing bowl for $3




 

A mint condition cracker tin and a tiny milk glass chicken ($1, $2)

I grabbed these Shiny Brites from a big box of old ornaments and the lady only asked 25 cents.  I'm kicking myself for not just grabbing the whole thing and digging through it more later.


On the thrift front I found another coffee can for my collection.  $2
 

And this very old spice bottle for less than a dollar.

I need my flowers to bloom so I can fill this can up!


The sweet friend who decorates the church for different things gave me this crate after I raved about it in her Easter decor.  This is what I did for it for now.
This amazing table cloth was 1/2 price ($2.50) at a little thrift store
A splurge I couldn't pass up.  I sold at an antique shop and took some out for this amazing jug.
This juice jug is in mint condition and I love this little frog linen from the thrifts.
I found this little plastic shaker in a box at a thrift for $1.00

I couldn't resist thrifting this 1918 book...the cover is amazing! $1



The Flowers started blooming before I posted...so here they are.

I am loving all of the old cans with flowers! Brian and I are doing more planting this weekend. I think I may do a few of my own :-)

Glad that you are finding lots of things. I love this time of year!

Stacey, your coffee can collection is fabulous! I have a plaid thermos like that and it is one of my favorites. I also have that cracker tin. Have had it for years. Just sold an orange glass pitcher like that at my yard sale. The tins with flowers are so sweet. Great finds all around! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
