Yippee!  Warm weather and spring means yard sales.

01a Skyline downtown Yarnell AZ (1024x676)

Even the fire hydrant is for sale

Those outhouses won’t give you gas, or a seat either, instead they were built around the fuel pumps.  Skyline hasn’t sold gas in a couple years and the building has been sold.  So they had a yard sale.

02a Old ceramic pitcher $10 Skyline yard sale Yarnell AZ (1024x897)

The owners collected many interesting items, amongst them this old ceramic pitcher for $10.

03a Pottery collection in RV kitchen Yarnell AZ (1024x678)

I collect more than just jewelry you know.  But I try not to get carried away with this heavy stuff and now I’m out of room.

What treasures have you collected lately?

  1. WoW! We have that in common! I love OLD pottery! I collect pitchers, bowls, pie plates all from clay and all pre 1950’s! I have several USA pottery pieces! When I moved… I sold all but my favorites, so now I have only about a dozen pots etc left!

  2. I enjoy pottery as well. I do like yard sales and I think if I were around more people with this interest, I would be prone to buy more as well:) Latest purchase? A new water heater. The old one exploded all over the the back closet flooding and trapping my cats as they were using the bathroom. It’s funny now, but it wasn’t pretty last week:)

  3. wow, what a terrific collection of old pottery! beautiful stuff i’d love to have some of those around my house.

    have a great rest of your day.

    big hugs!

  4. I collected watering cans for years. It’s amazing how many types there are. Then everyone started giving them to me as gifts. Pretty soon I had more watering cans than you can imagine. I don’t think I really collect anything now …. but I do have a couple antique typewriters and a couple antique cameras too. : )

  8. There is something funny about this yard sale. From the pit stop and fire hydrant.

    I have stopping collecting for now. Have no more room for my yarns.

  9. I like your ceramic pot. I no longer collect treasures. I am trying to declutter.

  10. Not a collector these days. Trying to purge and keep it simple. We did attend a Flea Market in Mesa a few weekends ago and I purchased a game called “Mexican Train” I had hoped to meet up with you this visit to AZ however illness due to “poor air quaity” kept me close to home. Perhaps next yr. we can plan to meet at the canyon!
    Love your image of the canyon a few posts ago! Really wanted to visit there and Sedona again however no time now as we leave on Sunday! Have a great week!

  11. I think I can have my own yard sale! I have boxes of ornament that came over from S.A. but no room to them anywhere. I also think of all the dusting – a wood burner is great in winter but oh what a mess it makes!! Diane

  12. I’d have bought that pitcher…. I am downsizing, as you know, but also sin by indulging in jewelry and photo stuff…that’s not so big…

  15. I love pottery too! I used to collect it when we had our old house, but sold most of it when we went on the road. I am getting a nice collection going now for the new house.
