You never know what you’ll find or who you’ll see!

Good friends, Adele and Billy with their “treasures”! 

And you know I won’t come home empty handed.

I bought all of this for a grand total of $7!!!

I don’t usually collect little dolls like these but when I asked the price and they were 50 cents, I couldn’t pass them up.

Always nice to get a good book, movies and holiday decorations.

You did good!!! What fun it is to go and see what you can find. I LOVE that little toy soldier. I have one that matches him but is a large one. This looks like his little brother....lol Your scarecrows are cute, too.

Hope you have a great Sunday- xo Diana

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Cute dolls and for that price I would agree, you had to buy them. I need a scarecrow and so if I found those I would snap them up. Books and movies always a good buy. It's so much fun and economical also!!
hugs,
Linda

Happy@Home said...

That looks like a fun outing and a lot of bang for your buck :).
Cute treasures you found. I've seen both of the movies. One of them is hilarious!

Lynn said...

I love the big scarecrow! Sounds like a fun day:@)

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

How fun to have that sale right in your community!

Diane said...

Those kind of sales are so fun! You got some goodies there!

Great little treasures Diane. I like the dolls. xoxo,Susie

Kathy said...

I am not a doll person at all, at least not in the traditional sense, but I would have snapped those two up, as well. They are very unique. Great find!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Those little dolls are adorable!

Montanagirl said...

You always find the neatest "stuff"!! LOL Love the dolls.

lindaakacraftygardener said...

Wonderful treasures. I love rummage sales at the different churches, you just never know what you will find.

eileeninmd said...

Great finds and new treasures for you! The scarecrows are cute! Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

Joy H said...

What fun! The Jeanette Walls book is really good. I have read all of her's.
Have a great weekend!

Betty from My Irish Cottage Home said...

I love that movie Its Complicated and those scarecrows are too cute.

camp and cottage living said...

I love your Palace guard-what a find! I noticed your collection of old books-I see many I like to read. I'll have to keep my eye out for them.
Take care-Kimberly

DreamChallenge said...

Jeannette Walls descriptions and details of Welch WV are entirely accurate. I have been in that area reviewing school's meals and believe me unless you have been their, you think our nation really does not have conditions like she describes. Let me know what you think after you read it. Blessings, Jan

Shelia said...

Wow! $7 for all that? You did good! I love to go to sells like this and it sounds like the prices were certainly right. Thanks for popping in to see me and your kind words about my living room.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

You got some great stuff at a great price! I love that movie "It's Complicated." :) Sounds like a fun afternoon!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You picked up some good things Diane - and I love the movie It's Complicated.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

podso said...

It looks like a lot of fun and something you can count on and plan for each year. Cute little dolls. Have a good week.

Sam I Am...... said...

I remember the last time you went and you get such great bargains! It's complicated looks good, let me know. Also I think I read the book, Half-Broke Horses. Cute Fall and Halloween decorations and the dolls are darling. Those were expensive back in the day.

Shug said...

Absolutely!! Great finds for great prices! You did Good!

Terra said...

What wonderful finds at a wonderfully small price. The dolls, in the kilt and the soldier, are adorable.

Red Rose Alley said...

This is my kind of place, Diane. You came home with lots of goodies. I love the little soldier. Isn't it nice when we find a treasure or two and get a good deal in the process? :~)

love,
~Sheri

Jeanne said...

I love the way you staged the scarecrows.

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

Love your finds. And I do love a great white elephant sale.

Grantham Lynn said...

I've been slow to visit the last couple weeks. Thanks for beatin' me to it! I love your beach fences! Looks like some great deals. I would love to find some like that. I think my kids have some dolls like that packed away! Thanks for coming by my fences and tea party. I am going to try and do a mosaic of the tea party. The computer was acting up yesterday! Cross your fingers for me!
Have a wonderful week!
Sherry

Snap said...

I'm impressed! Seven dollars went a long way!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I could spend hours wandering and looking at that sale Diane!
Were there any Golden books on sale?
Enjoy your week.
Shane :) x

Cindy said...

Hours could turn into days for me walking about a rummage sale. I always thought a white elephant sale was linen, towels and sheets that sort of stuff, guess I never knew. Thanks for sharing

ann said...

Such good bargains. Of course I like the little dolls for 50 cents. Everyone must have had a good time and cleaned out a few closets too.

Doreen@househoneys said...

Elephant sales are the BEST! Clearly you agree because you never miss them ;).

Great little finds Diane. Enjoy!

Sara D.B. said...

What a nice and joyful event! Especially the old books look very interesting.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

I love sales like this and looks like you found some real treasures! Love the little dolls and scarecrow. Love Jeannette Walls, too. Her book, 'The Glass Castle' is an autobiography - a very good book. xo Karen

Veronica Roth said...

Tons of wonderful stuff. :D I'm very sorry I missed an annual rummage sale yesterday, completely slipped my mind, (because I love getting strange and lovely bargains for very little money). Love those little dolls you got. Loads of fun to have around for a while and when you get tired of them then you can pass them on without any regret.

Arlene Grimm said...

Oh MY!! I would have gone crazy at this sale!! Love your finds!!

Poppy said...

Brightly coloured and beautiful buys, Diane! Enjoy!!

Poppy

Donna said...

You definitely had a lot of fun there...I need to have a sale as I am purging too much stuff that must go.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

How fun! You did good!

Mary Cromer said...

Looks like you found some treasures for yourself and at great bargain pricing. I used to hit the White Elephant Sales, and never hear of any around here anymore.

Denise said...

To Me that's a good way to relax and have fun.Thank You for Your vote :)

Carol Z said...

This would be fun. I think I need to have one of these.

Diane Writes said...

Shopping!!! You got the greatest steals namemate. The little dolls are for the win!
