Happy, happy, joy, joy,
The weather is warm & the garage sales are in full swing. I wore out my ATM card this weekend. Every time I ran out cash, I'd spot another HUGE sale! I was a Junkie, but I got some sweet deals.
Tell me what you think.
$4 for this pile of books, including 3 old scrapbooks.
I cannot pass up these old childen's dictionaries.
$3 for these 2 tarnished beauties.
This might be a good time to warn you, there is nothing really 'pretty' in this post. After I downloaded the picutres I saw that there was very much a theme going on that day.
$5 for this old table. The previous owner was an artist, I like the grotty painted top.
$10 for 2 sconces. I'll paint & distress these for my bedroom, the one that's on the 2 year make-over plan. Okay, maybe these will pass for pretty.
$1 for this rusty old sap bucket.
$1 for the white travel case. Have I shown you my suitcase collection?
It's where I stash my fabric. Believe it or not, I do have a system. I keep the wools & velvets, on the bottom for now.
Love the fork! These pieces can defiantly be worked into some art.
No, those aren't bugs inside this beautiful bottle. Just good 'ol funk. Very cool bottle tho, & only $1.
$3 each for these giant Edison bulbs! I freaked when I saw them!
9 inches high! I don't know what they were used for, possibly a marque?
But this was my favorite find of the day.
An old hospital rolling bed tray, it tilts up, for reading, & can be raised & lowered. It's so heavy & sturdy. The wheels are like a brown clear porcelain, never seen any like them.
It has such a industrial - vintage look, I think it would be the most excellent bathtub caddy. Now I just need a old tub!
If I told you how much I paid, you'd never believe me!
Come back tomorrow for part 2, I have a great story for you. I gotta make this short today, I'm having oral surgery. I am the WORST patient ever when it comes to this kind of stuff. I am not in a happy place, but my friends keep reminding me how it'll all be worth it in the end. Hope you all have a better day than me! LOL
