Yard Sale in Birmingham, Alabama and a Linky





If you live near Birmingham, Alabama, and you aren't busy this Saturday, come on over to Rhoda's!

We're having a yard sale together!

I'm bringing a trailer full of stuff to sell.

Stuff I found in various closets...



Benches with backs...



Benches without backs...



Gray-painted Headboard benches (that no longer have headboards attached to them!)



Dining room chairs...



...and mantel decor galore...





And we're bringing lots and lots and lots more furniture (dressers, chairs, tables, vanities, etc.) and home decor too!

(No, we're not moving- we just know which furniture pieces/items actually work in our house now that we've got the rooms set up the way we want them, and we have tons of left over pieces/items from projects we've worked on for HGTV.com over the past few months.)

So come on over if you're in the area!

And if you need directions- email Rhoda at rhoda12@bellsouth.net.

Now onto the Linky thing-a-ma-bob!

We wanna see what kinda stuff YOU scored at yard sales this Summer!

Never done the "linky thing" before?
No problem!
Here's how you do it...


- Create a descriptive name for your yard sale score in the “Name” field. This will make it easier for folks to browse through them.

- Make sure to link to your specific yard sale score post, not the main page of your blog.

- If you want to, link to this post from your post so that all your readers can join in on the fun too.


Thanks in advance for linkin' up!

Hi Layla,
We don't actually have yard sales in the UK but I did manage to get a few things from a barn sale when we were visiting friends so have included these in your linky. Hope that's OK!

So not fair. I want to come! How about an online garage sale for some of the smaller items? Auction style?

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

Any chance you'll be having an online yard sale for the stuff you don't sell? I looove your mantelscape pieces.

Erin Nicole Nusbaum said...

You wouldn't happen to be selling that #9 on the plank of wood, would you? If so, would you be willing to ship it to me? I live in Ohio. I would pay for the shipping.

MrsStingfish said...

oh this is suuuuuuch a tease! mantel decor galore is of huge interest to me - and the gray headboard bench and oh, i don't know...everything!!! please let me know if you end up willing to ship anything.

have paypal, will send money. ;) LOL

Ginger said...

Bummer that you aren't having it here in Prattville! I would definitely come!

Raelynn said...

Yard Sales and Goodwill were missed this summer, moving out of state and selling some of my old finds were on my agenda...ughh...I want my own house again!

The Pennington Point said...

I wonder how long it takes to get there from south Texas. :) Sounds like a great yard sale! Lisa~

Carrie said...

Layla - You are killing me! Oh, how I would love to come to this Yard Sale!!! But the commute from TX would be a bit much! Oh, the lucky, lucky, Birmingham residents!

Deserae said...

Gosh, I wish I lived closer so I could come shop!!! Guess I'll just have to follow you on Facebook. Good luck :o)

Allison @ House of Hepworths said...

Oh, I am SO jealous! I would love to buy your stuff from you!!!

You two have fun. I'm sure it's going to be such a great day!

Also, thanks so much for the link-up party. I shared a few of my thrifty finds.

I don't think I've ever wanted to live in Alabama more than I do this Saturday. (or ever, really). I so want that planked wall plaque in the top (?) picture. I've always adored those! Well, among other things! I love all of the stuff listed!

I live in London so there's not that many yard sales, so I liked to my bed which I got second hand on Freecycle. So it was actually free! Woop woop.
Love the site.

Katie said...

I wish I lived closer...I use to. I will send my mom to go.

Lindsey said...

I really wish I was going to be in 'Bama. Good luck with your sale!

Dondra said...

Awww....hate I'm going to miss it, but don't hate that the reason is I'll be at PC Beach! Know of any good flea markets down that way. I started searching for some online a couple of nights ago and have some picked out to visit (in case of rain - or too much sun)! Hope y'all have fun. Let me know if you don't sell out....I would love a shot at any leftovers!

rustic rooster interiors said...

Oh how FUN... Good Luck & Sell, sell, sell!!! I think the rooster is going to do one in October. can't wait to clean house & sell!!!!! :)

xoxo,

Kelly said...

I have a question...maybe if you run out of things to blog about you could address this...Our design styles are very similar- very beachy, light and airy. My question is how do you incorporate "fall" decorating into this decor? I love the fall and the leaves and mums and pumpkins but it almost looks stupid in my house with the blues, greens, whites and shells! I am looking forward to your mantle display. I assume painting pumpkins white is one way but any other suggestions? I'm on the hunt!

Your favorite fan...Kelly

Leslie said...

oh how i wish i lived closer!!!

Sandra said...

Have fun at your yard sale - I suspect you will be overrun with people looking give your wonderful things new homes.

If Alabama weren't such a long commute from Vancouver, Canada, then I would be there myself to try and pair up with that wonderful windsor style bench of yours!

Bernadette Merikle said...

all the best with the yardsale. I need to start putting stuff aside for the next neighborhood sale this coming spring. Just missed sale season here now that it's rainy Seattle again.

Hey friends!

We're looking forward to meeting you at the yard sale on Saturday!

We decided to have an "in-person" yard sale, instead of a "online" yard sale 'cuz we don't dig going to the post office AT ALL! :-)

Boxes, and tape, and driving up there, and standing in line there gives us the willies just thinkin' about it! LOL!

I know.
We're weird.
:-)

Did you sell everything at the yard sale this past weekend? If not do you still have photos the remaining items? I would love to see them since I missed this.
