These gals are great shopping buddies! It was such a fun day! From left to right, my sister, our aunt, our dear friend who might as well be our aunt, and me. (Yes, I'm wearing the Tank Top remade from a T-Shirt! It is paired with denim shorts, amethyst jewelry and black sandals.)
This is our first stop, a great antique store in Clifty. There were antiques inside and yard sale wares in the shed and barn.
We left my house around 8:00 am. It takes about an hour to drive to Eureka Springs from here.
There are yard sales all over town. The funny thing is we kept seeing people that we already knew!
This is Evelyn. She may be the godliest woman I will ever know. I just love her to pieces!
OK. OK. I'll show you what I bought! You're gonna love it! All of it!
Brown Jacket for $1.00
Styled with a cream cami, leopard corsage I made (for the corsage tute, click HERE ) and a tiger eye necklace made by my friend, Melissa. Oh, yeah and brown reading glasses. Pretend you do not see the white denim shorts please. Ahem!
Here they are styled with a wonderful scarf and frameless reading glasses. Hmmm... I actually like the white denim shorts in that picture. This fashion show was supposed to be above the shorts. It is still REALLY hot here even though I am modeling Fall jackets!
T-Shirt for $2.00 You know this will be another T-Shirt Makeover, right? It's a pretty heavy weight cotton and super long. I love it! Give me your ideas on how to re-style it!
Then we stopped at a church yard sale and met the most delightful 91 year old woman! She was such a joy, I actually just plopped myself onto a chair next to her and had the sweetest visit. She told me she no longer sews clothing, only lap blankets for the veterans hospital. Her table was full of seriously cool fabric.
I bought these two pieces. The orange one on the left was $1.00 for 1.5 yards. The polka dot was $2.00 for 2.5 yards. Look at them closer. Aren't they amazing?! 'Not sure what to make with it. Any suggestions?
I also purchased a sandwich bag filled with lace. It looks like there are about three yards each of four different types of lace!
This lovely woman was wearing a fabulous purple scarf. She told me purple is now her favorite color and she was selling several scarves, too. I grabbed two! They were $0.25 each.
Here's one with the brown jacket. The other one is perfect for my purse!
Perfect! Don't you just adore the color?! I do!
Shimmery Gold Shoes for $1.00
They are a great color! 'Sort of beige, sort of gold with a slight shimmer.
After lunch at Sparky's we went downtown to find some AC and, well, fudge! A bank's digital thermometer flashed 104 degrees! EESH!
In one of the nice little shops with AC, I found these Fit Flops! They are smokin' hot!
Gray with amazing ruffles on top! I love Fit Flops and haven't found them lately. So, these were not yard sale price, but they were on sale! ;-)
So, I feel like I am WAY AHEAD on Fall Shopping!
It was such a fun day! If you ever have a chance to go to Yards and Yards of Yard Sales in Eureka Springs, grab your favorite shopping buddies and go!
Thank you for sharing my Yard Sale Success with me! I'd love to hear your thoughts! ;-) -Marci
