Our Garage Sale Saturday began with nothing. The first couple...were TRUE junk! I thought the first yard just needed a good cleaning and that someone had put the signs up as a joke!
No..I am serious! That really did pass through my mind. :)
We didn't plan on staying out until noon as we usually do. An hour and a half later we were about to go home when things began to look up..
I am always in the market for good frames at very cheap prices. This one was a bit more than I like to pay at $1.00! But...it was worth, it so into the trunk it went!
And this sturdy dyed red basket caught my eye for just 25 cents. The sweet little cookie plate was too great to pass up for another quarter..and also the old video's at .25 each. I have been searching and hoping to find "All About Eve" and there it was! I kept my VCR...so I love to find old classic films and spend an afternoon curled up watching them. Another dollar spent at this garage sale...I was not doing too badly...as I didn't have an agenda except to NOT spend much. (Famous last words!)
And books! I am always on the look out for books. I found four hardbound ones (a couple for great grandson) and two for me. Nice. .50 cents each! Yippee! I was on a roll!
I loved this little lamp with it's shaded leaf and floral design on the shade....so muted.
It is made of very heavy iron...and even came with the light bulb. Sweet little rope design...
And here it is all lit up...
And then..OH JOY! A perfect little table for...um...somewhere!
To paint or not to paint. The stain is much too deep into the wood to remove it..and yes I could cover it with a doily or whatever ...but.. decisions, decisions!!
I had seen this little table and the lamp at one of garage sales but passed them by, then when I couldn't get them out of my mind..we backtracked trying to find it. Up one street and down another...and finally..there they were...I was really fortunate they hadn't sold.
Ever tried to backtrack when going to garage sales? Felt that urgency to rush, and it's one wrong street after another? Frantic that it will be sold by the time you find it??? Have you?
$3.00 for the lamp and $20.00 for the table. Not bad at all..but Sweet Husband was beginning to look nervous...so it was off to our favorite place for breakfast. I think it was the $20 that sent him over the edge. I noticed his hands were beginning to shake as he took that $20.00 out of his wallet. LOL Poor baby!
Of course it was another pot of beans when it was a "JOHN DEER" bike for $175! I mean, what the heck??!! At a garage sale no less! :) Please remember, he only shook, he didn't say anything! Gotta love that man!
Gosh the coffee tasted good...and the ice cold orange juice! So what do you think? Should I paint it?? The table, I mean...
Love and hugs,
