My Friend's Amazing Sale!!

My friend, Joann is having a huge yard sale next weekend and was nice enough to let me in for a "pre-buy"!! I met her about 5 years ago at one of her sales and we've been friends ever since! She and her husband are retired and do flea markets and these sales--she's a little whirlwind with tons of energy!! When I drove in her driveway, I was just amazed at the vast amount of stuff she has out waiting to display for her sale!!

These next couple pics were taken in her yard around some of her awesome out-buildings! I just love this adorable little barn with the metal chickens and the pigeon nester above the door!!

This is the side of her garage where her sale is being held!! She has such an eye for display~you should see the inside of her house!!! After getting to know her better, I finally got an invitation to view her house--and it is an amazing primitive dream with some of the best antique collections I've ever seen. She and her husband have been collecting for years!

Here are some of the things that came home with me....

This picture doesn't do it justice-but this is the cutest, shabbiest dental cabinet I've ever found!!

This is my pile!!!

The adorable little wheelbarrow has the name "Butch" painted on the side!

The black iron chairs need new seats~but I think they will be amazing! I think I'll use some of the barkcloth I bought at the flea market last Sunday!

Beautiful ironstone pieces and a little peek of the architectural fragment I snatched up!

This little vintage statue came home with me too! I just LOVE her and don't care one bit that the goose's neck is broken! Her patina is just perfect!!

...and you know I've been searching for one of these....

~ finally, my own dress-form. I wanna "junk" it up a little bit more!!
