Usually with the holidays the garage sale scene is a bust. This weekend however was AWESOME! First of all my husband usually has to work on Saturday. This weekend however he had off since they exceeded quota for June, it is a holiday weekend and it is the beginning of the month. Yea! So Friday night, he asked me what I wanted to do on Saturday.
For my collection of cream pottery.
This was a quarter and is getting a makeover.
These were each a dollar.
This sale had a table where everything was .50 cents of 5 for $1.00, I found 5 things.
This stuff was actually from a barn sale we went to after the neighborhood sale. The napkins were .25 cents each, I got 12 and the bracelet was $1.00, the earrings .50 cents each and the swizzle sticks were $2.00.
I love the swizzle sticks.
Back to the neighborhood sale.
When I saw these I ran up the driveway hoping there wasn’t a sold sign on them. I was in luck. Of course my husband came up behind me wondering why I wanted such “ugly” chairs. What ugly, these are vintage 1940’s chairs. Well I paid for them and went back for them later.
Then in the evening I found a picture in country living of “my” chairs. He likes them a lot better now. It doesn’t hurt either that they are oh so comfortable.
We are probably going to paint them, even though the ones in Country Living are chippy.
I decided to stop at one more sale when I was going back for the chairs.
All this was $2.00
This was $1.50
Another find right before finding the chairs is this.
This great tole lamp that was made in Italy. I may sell it, even though it matches my living room and it is oh so pretty. The details on it are amazing. It even has the original shade. I have never seen a shade so well made.
I also have a couple of more things that I wasn’t able to get photographed. Mostly the kids stuff.
Well I hope that your long weekend has been fun and have a great day tomorrow. We just got back from the fireworks tonight and we are going to go on a picnic tomorrow.
