Sale of the Year?

One of the bloggers I read, A La Carte, has a 'Junkin Finds Friday' post here and invites other bloggers to share their finds. Well, I've got a great Junkin' Friday report! I went to two sales yesterday and found some great things:
Lots of aprons (and no spots!) Lots of dish towels and kitchenware This 'chef' embroidered towel -- isn't it sweetThis vegetable embroidered towel
But today I went with my friend and booth-partner, Bargain Hunter (BH) to a sale that was huge and priced really well. We had freezing rain this morning so we got a late start and arrived about a half hour after it started. We waited for an hour in a line that snaked all the way around the side of the house. We were sure that everything good would be gone.

There was such an amazing amount of stuff that all the people shopping hadn't even put a dent in it 3 hours later! BH called the 'Sale of the Year' (high praise, since it's only March 4)! She got a Fiesta bonanza and I'm sure she will post all about it once she stops hyperventilating and doing the happy dance. I'm really happy for her, as she fulfilled several Fiesta dreams today. I got lots of bargains, but nothing I'm dancing about. Still, I'll post pictures after I finish sorting, cleaning & playing (and everyone knows that the playing is the best part).

Some great finds there - loving especially the large green bowl and are those tupperware beakers in that wire stand?

Wow, you got some great things too (I just saw BH's post). Love the green bowl. I'm a big fan of charity shopping (as my blog name suggests!) and am really jealous of these estate sales that you guys get in. We don't have them in the UK - or yard sales. Closest we have is car boot sales, and I just posted on my first one this year. Got soaked!

Am following you now, hope to see some more cool finds.
