My best yard sale find !!

The BEST yard sale find ever is the Hull pottery pitcher on the right . I love the pink & blue & yellow. My husband stopped to talk to this man he knows & across the street a girl was having a yard sale .She had 1 little table full of stuff . I thought to myself, that is not even worth getting out for. But I thought well it will pass some time while waiting on him to get through talking .
The minute I walked up to the table my eyes caught onto the pitcher. I thought that can't be a piece of Hull . I didn't even pick it up or turn it over.I said how much for the little pitcher and she said ( oh I still can't believe what she said ) she said 50 cents !!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I almost passed out ! I was so excited ! I almost couldn't contain myself, my heart was running wild, my knees were weak and I wanted to scream out , I'LL TAKE IT ! All the while I never picked it up. So I got my 50 cents out and paid for it, picked it up and got back into the car. Then I turned it over and it had Hull on the bottom of it . OH HAPPY day, I did the happy dance the rest of the day. The little pitcher is flawless , not a chip or scratch anywhere on it . It is truly my little treasure. The girl said it belonged to her grandmother. I can't believe she sold it. I am so sentimental about anything that belonged to my family or friends .
The plate , I found it at Nashville Tn. fairgrounds flea market . It is from Germany , I paid $10.
for it . The little holder it is sitting on was from a yard sale , it was 50 cents . The cup and saucer my sweet momma bought for me when we were out antiquing one day, it was $ 25. 00. And last the lamp in the back that you can't see too good is an old carnival glass piece that was my great uncle & aunt's .
If you have never been to Nashville flea market , it is the last weekend of every month .

I adore your yard sale finds. Words can't express how much fun it is to find a beautiful treasure for fifty cents. My motto about any yard sale is "You never know when you might find a sleeper" My cousin says when arriving late, " she had car trouble, it stops at yard sales'.

Thanks for sharing your great "sleepers"

Take care, Jeanne

Theresa, your yard sale finds are just wonderful. I'm so glad you shared them with us.

I laughed at Jeanne's comment. She has insisted at stopping at "sleepers" for years.

Hi Theresa.
WOW...did you get lucky with that find for 50 cents ~ a Hull pitcher!
Seems like it a great day for you.
Thank you for your king words left on my blog. I was thinking about going to Franklin, TN to go antiquing. Do you know anything about this area near NAshville?
Hugs, Sharon
