I hit a garage sale and went to my favorite thrift store and found some treasures. This will be about it for me for the season. Garage sales pretty much stop after September rolls around. Although I hit the thrift stores now and again. I thought I would share with you all what I found.
Child's type printing set...whole alpha. intact .50, Old mixing bowl...with crazy beautiful crazing 1.50, metal lazy susan .50 , old pinochle cards..with the prettiest pictures .50 for both sets , more old stamping blocks from an old grocery store .50 (putting these in an old apothecary jar filled to the brim , aprons..sighhhhh one w/ jingle bells, I can jingle when I wear it ladies...I have always wanted to jingle...truly I have 1.00 a piece . Old table with cute legs....old linoleum top..NOT so cute.. coming off 8.00, old hotel wooden hangers (I use these to hang art and scrap booking).75 for the 3, old plates..one w/ green striping is an old buffalo restaurant plate 2.00 for all 3.. you already saw the old transferware platter, old checkers/carrum board the lady gave that to me free- I think it would make a cool art piece on the wall in my son's room , sweater pillow ( may use the cover but I always pick up feather down when I find it for pillow forms) 2.00., Old picture of farmhouse 2.00, wainscot file 2.00 (will be painted my favorite color), baskets were free & some will be painted, and the little bee skein was a 1.00. I bought another antique cabinet but have to pick it up tomorrow...can't wait to find a place for it and my little table. Grand total of around 25.00.... and my happiness from finding these treasures...priceless....unless you ask my manly man. I figure I am a low maintenance woman for the most part. I don't get my nails done and my hair is only done every 3-4 months..so this is my type of splurge. I know many of you would agree. Will share once I find homes for everything. cherry
