this time it was thrifting and a yard sale.
I got to go yard sale scavenging in Central WA while visiting my mom last week. I met a little success…
A metal crate I planned on adding planks and casters to like this pin, but then I got home and looked at the pin and realized I needed two square ones. Not sure if I will do the same thing with just this one, or repurpose it in a different way. It was $10… a little steep but it was a yard sale in front of an antique shop (antique shops = $$$), and if I found one of these locally in a shop it would be more like high $20 range. So I’m okay with it. It is holding all my projector / movie night stuff right now, sitting in a closet.
LOVE this elephant statue… the colors! So whimsical and old fashioned. I love the expression. It was marked $1 but she threw it in for free with the crate because the elephant has a chip on one foot. Works for me.
This one was found at a quick thrift store stop in mom’s little town. A cute silver footed dish for $5. I will probably use it for soaps in the bathroom. Right now it landed on my desk and holds erasers.
I’ve been busy this week and we are sharing a car because we sold our 2nd and have not found a new one yet, so when I do get out I have tons to get done, and I have been forcing myself not to stop at yard sales! It is killing me! I know when things settle down, and I can stop, they will probably be done for the year. Oh well, finding more stuff means finding more stuff to get rid of; might as well save myself the work!
