  2. Class Disney item
  3. Portrait of Elvis on something non-traditional
  4. Some kind of meat on a stick
  5. Promotional item for a beer no longer made

Kelley

  1. Rotary phones from the 60s and 70s
  2. Antique rolling pins
  3. Antique linens
  4. Memorabilia from old Westerns

Leslie

  4. Cool (and clean) baby clothes
  5. Vintage kitchen item

We want to know what some of the coolest and oddest pieces you’ve ever picked up at a yard sale.  Leave us a comment below to let us know!

Also, be sure to come back tomorrow for updates on our adventures.  We’ll be updating the blog throughout the day and Tweeting from our twitter account @HGTVDecorating.
