This next picture: these folks had a several tarps on the ground "$1.00 pickin's"--just my style; I got to dig and find some really neat stuff!!
What? Trashy you may say?? ummmm--I found silver s&p shakers, rose plate, antique powder container, antique glass cake plate, etc. etc. LOVE IT! But--you gotta dig (thats the best part!).
NOW----YOU'RE GONNA LOVE MY JUNK FINDS! I SPENT VERY LITTLE AND BROUGHT HOME A TREASURE~TROVE----HERE'S THE STUFF I BOUGHT TODAY:
The ~3~ wood trim pieces and the brown suitcase all for $12.00: BARGAIN!
TWO antique folding chairs: $3.00 each. Love, LOVE 'em. The vintage "moody" picture is gorgeous in person; that and the rusty can; each $3.00.
My GOAL: find
cheap reasonable ironstone for my personal collection. That big platter is Meakin Ironstone: my favorite.
LAMPS AND LAMPS! See that little hobnail teapot? Antique and for $1.00!!---the lid has a broken petal on the rose motiff--don't care; love it. AND SEE THOSE PRECIOUS LITTLE COLOGNE BOTTLES? Got a big baggie of those for $3.00--will look sweet in a bowl. Two cake stands.
SEE THAT SILVER S&P??---$1.00--got 'em from the "tarp-people" (love that diggin').
More little stuff on the
cheap (so inexpensive) side.
Glass bottles, candlestick, old sewing drawer.
But--the best bargain I think I got--is this tall cabinet for $15.00!
I want to make this into a wine cabinet and to hold my wine glasses and crystal stemware. Will be painting this for sure; adding the shelves. And will picture it when it's done--that may be awhile!
Lovin' the treasure hunting--and love a bargain; Don't you? Have a GREAT week!
