Part 2, Hillsville Finds

I have lots of goodies to share with you today!! First I found this wonderful brush for $1.00. I love the pink and white!
They had an entire tent full of jewelry for $1.00!!! I know I don't share my jewelry finds buy I do love jewelry.....costume, vintage, gold, silver,stainless steel I could go on and on and on about jewelry! This was not everything I was able to purchase, I decided not to go overboard...this time!!

I adore these old song books! Aren't they lovely? One is from 1869 and I'm not sure about the other.

I paid $4.00 for one and $2.50 for the other one. I think they are wonderful treasures!

I saved the best for last!! I fell in love with this stand. I hardly ever buy anything big on our trip. For one thing we fill the car and there's very little room. For another thing I've always believed in buy 10 things for $10.00 not 1 thing for $10.00. I checked the price and it said $45.00. NO WAY! No matter how much I liked it $45.00 was way too steep! So, I walked around and just kept coming back to this little stand. I decided not to buy it. Then, after thinking some more I thought well, if it were $30.00 I would go ahead and buy it. The gentleman was so nice. He said $30.00 was his bottom price and I handed over the money!!! YAY!

It actually came from a dental office. The stand is on wheels and it adjusts up and down (depending how tall or short the patient was)! I am so glad I bought it! I have so many uses for it already. I think it would look great w/ a huge fern in it. Towels in the bathroom. Filled with Christmas balls for the holidays!!! I could go on and on.
That was the extent of my shopping for the weekend. I think I spent around $60.00. Not too bad for all the junk...or treasures I came home with. Hope everyone has a great Labor Day!!!


  1. I would say you had a very successful day on your outing. I enjoyed seeing all your finds.

  2. The books are incredible! Thank you for the good wishes on my blog. Have a great day. Ciao Rita mammabellarte
    (my father in law was from West Virginia, I would love to go back, he always talked about fall season to be the best time)

  3. I love those old books and the white stand. I can't wait to see what you do with them. As for the dinning room, you can do it, it is like doing a display on a shelf, something tall, medium and small and working in odd numbers. Now I must tell you that I would not be able to serve dinner in there with the table like that, the family grouches because they have to look around my display. So for holidays I change the centerpiece to something smaller so you can look over it, but that is only for dinner, after it is over, I put all my original displays up.

  4. Lovely finds! That white stand is so neat !!

  5. Looks like you did it again...great finds indeed. I especially love the pink brush and the song books...they're practically free!

  6. Crystal, checking in. U ok? I realized you haven't posted in awhile so I'm stopping by to say Hi!

  7. I so enjoy visiting your blog! I just love it and have chosen you to receive the "ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD!" I was honored with the award, and now I want to pass it on to you! Thank you for having such an interesting and beautiful blog!

  8. I thought I recognized the dental stand - you got it at The Sylvatus Ruritan Club and we probably met!! If you come again, please ask any of the vendors for Lynn and they will point you to me.
