Still Life Props for $5: Go to Yard Sales

Now that I'm starting to get more into still lifes (and flowers, pots, etc), I realize that I really don't have a lot of items to paint. However, yard sale season is starting in Vermont and this is a perfect place to pick up items to paint.

For me, I really like items that are extremely reflective and colorful. The items that you see on this table cost me a total of $5. The items are: reflective silver cheese holder (75 cents), Copper pot ($1), Fake Flowers ($1.25), Candleabras ($1), and eight black and shiny napkin holders ($1).

Yard sales are a great source of interesting still life props and you can definitely get some awesome stuff for a cheap price (especially if you haggle).
