Above is my loot for this weekend!!!
Get this. I paid a total of 3.50 for this!
What, how? you ask? Read on....
I have a summer place in Vermont, and was looking forward to hitting some yard sales. But, for the second weekend in a row, it RAINED!!! I did manage to find like 3 garage sales. This is where I bought the milk glass (bottom shelf on the pic) for 1$, and the nice rectangle 'pot' (upper shelf), also for a buck. I then hit a cute little second hand store in upstate NY and found the tiny wooden shelf for 50cents, and this *awesome* small antique tray from Japan for a dollar for a dollar- i fell in love with it! (it's on the chair).
I found another garage sale where everything was overpriced it was ridiculous. But there were some "free" boxes and I found a couple of things in there: 'Cars' movie cars, littlest pet shop animals, the cute thing on the middle shelf (ok, sorry- no clue what it's called... you see, i'm french! and sometimes just forget these things LOL), the old meatloaf pan, and the SHOES!! Adidas shoes, perfect condition but missing one of the laces! They were my second son's size! Score!!!
And the rest, you ask?
Curbside finds from this morning, back home!!
I'm always amazed at what some people will just *throw away* in the garbage!!
Since it's a holiday here, and it's sunny, I decided to check around if there was some garage sales, while keeping an eye on the trash, since it's trash day. Boy did I ever score!
First up, I found 2 dressers (not pictured, they're still in the trailer). One of them is the same size as the one I found last week, but better quality, so my daughter will get that one instead. And a narrower one, also for my daughter. Both need makeover: paints and hardware, but I will love doing that!!
Then I found the wicker shelf unit, perfect condition, just needs to be cleaned and repainted! Perfect for my bathroom (which I want to redecorate NOW)
The small table, I actually found on thursday. It doesnt look like much, but it's gonna look fab soon! And I was just looking for an end table for that couch on the right, so it's perfect! woohoo!!
Then I saw THE chair! That old rocking chair that looks like it's seen better days. I did not hesitate and put it in my car. LOVE all the detailing on top. This chair will need a LOT of TLC. 2 of the bars on the back are not originals, one of the legs is no longer glued to the bottom rocking piece.
the hubby says it cannot be done! What do you think?
On the same street, I found that huge wicker vase, the frames, the teddy bear (my daughter collects teddies) and that old sewing box!! The frames have nothing interesting in them, but the frames are pretty cool and will look great painted and repurposed!!
So go on over to Rhoda's Southern Hospitality blog to see more Thrifty finds by other bloggers. I love mondays, when i can just browse all the thrifty goodness everyone's found!
