Yard Sale Treasures

My parents are in town for a few days and so this morning they stayed with the kiddos while the Hubster and I went down the road to a local town's community yard sale.  And let me tell you, when they said community yard sale they meant community yard sale.  The whole town was like one giant maze of bargains to be had. 

I had $12 in my pocket and I spent that and only that.  That wasn't my plan really, I would have spent more if it had been warranted, and it almost was....but in the end I walked away.  I'm thrilled with what I got though!

A whole bucket of craft paints for $3.

.50 for 2 canning jars (can never have too many of these, am I right?)

An old shoe form - $1 

Hubby said this was the only purchase he was sanctioning (because it had to do with guns, lol!) An old burlap ammunition bag - .50.

An old pair of ice skates in their original box - $1
They'll be great in a display at Christmas time 

And my most exciting purchase?  Wonderful metal bicycle baskets........$5!!
I've been wanting these FOREVER, but wasn't willing to pay $20-30, plus shipping from Ebay or Etsy.
(look for these in an upcoming post) 

Lovely rustiness! 

I also got a cool little baby toy for the Bubster for $1.

So, how do you think I did for $12?  I think I did quite well.  : )
