We spent this past weekend just goofing on and doing what we wanted to do...every now and then one needs to do just that right? Especially when the trip involved a yard sale at a local fairground in Jesup, Ga. with lots of goodies....
When I first saw this yard sale advertised it was the first of April so I decided that the yard sale in Jesup, Ga would be on my list of things to do.
We headed out pretty early and stopped at this little country restaurant for breakfast. I have to throw some dibs in there for them....GREAT FOOD AT A GREAT PRICE. If you are ever traveling through Nahunta, Ga be sure to stop.
Good breakfast and several cups of coffee and here we go....
Of course the first thing I spied was this cutie. Needless to say it wasn't for sale as it was used to display necklaces. However the young lady told me that she had more people wanting to buy her shabby chick candelabra that she had painted and attached pillar candles too than her necklaces!
(I see one of these little DIY cuties in the makings for me)
And as with any yard sale one man's junk is another man's treasure...or should I say woman!
And I think the clothes sold right off this feller...Hee-hee!
We shopped at the Big Yard Sale for a few hours and then I spotted another little stop to make.
I did find me some goodies on my trip. (of course you didn't think that I wouldn't now did you?)
First purchase was these blue and white dishes. I have blue and white dishes that belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so these will go nicely with my collection.
I already have my sugar, creamer and sweetener set up and ready.
(don't ya just love the little creamer?)
Another blue and white piece.
Aren't these adorable?
This was so pretty to me.
The detail etched on the glass was really pretty.
Awe...yes! This sweetie came home with me too. I've already had a cup of coffee in it and a hot cup of tea!
A few pieces of jewelry came home with me as well.Several of these pieces will be used to make something else....my mind is churning and that can be dangerous!
This cute little beach sign will be used when I do my Beach Tablescape this summer. Right now I am just letting it be a reminder that our family beach trip for a week will be coming up in August! YAY!
Found these two cute little boxes. I've already got for ideas for both. I see some chalk paint going on soon....
Yep...loved my loot.
We had a full weekend no doubt with shopping, eating out and just enjoying some time away. We visited St. Simon's Island, Little St. Simon Island and went to beach at Jekyll Island.
It doesn't look like it in this picture but from a distance this bridge looked like a sail boat.
Another great place to eat especially if you are wanting fresh sea food is Captain's Joe's.
Not sure what I was more impressed with...the food or the price! Not often you come across a seafood platter for two which ours consisted of salmon, flounder, calamari, oysters, shrimp, hush puppies and baked potato. Included in the price was a soup and salad bar that was all you could eat and tea plentiful for $42! AND we had so much left over that we carried it home to make another meal! The service was excellent and that is major plus in my book!
I hope that you have enjoyed my little weekend getaway with me. It was so much fun.
