This area is known as "the yard". Mario brings in lots of cool stuff on a daily basis. The vintage garden chairs near the entrance sign (above) were being unloaded by one of his pickers just as I arrived.
Inside the yard old iron railings line the aisles and along the walls on each side of the yard.
So much to take in on each trip.
A rather elegant way to say "We're Closed".
Is there a more iconic birdbath than one with a seahorse base? This one needs a little work, but has so many possibilities.
Inside the shop another customer has arranged her treasures out on the floor. Everyone picks a spot to hold their special finds.
I love anything faux bois including this concrete birdbath.
There's another surprising aspect to Yeya's. During my visits over the past year, I learned that Mario sells and trades plants from his collection right along with all the great salvage pieces he has in the shop.
Plants like this Bunny Ears Cactus or Opuntia microdasys 'Alba' from which I received a few starts. I promised to bring a few Cinnamon Bunny Ears cactus pads next time I stop in. This is the third color of this cactus I have and that might be all of them. Looks soft and fuzzy but, don't be fooled, it's a prickly one.
Firestick plant, probably Euphorbia tirucalli. Talk about dangerous gardening, the sap from this plant is toxic. I already have a green pencil cactus and know not to rub my eyes after handling this plant.
A small hardy columnar cactus which might be Cereus repandus but will need to wait until it blooms for positive ID.
This bright succulent has stayed outside at Yeya's through several light freezes and will make a colorful addition to my deck planters.
That's not all. During this visit I bought a special item which will have its own post tomorrow.
