Bargains Vintage~Style

It's starting to rain again today~~hard to get some good lighting in the house even with the lights on and doors open~~last Thursday was my junking day and found these treasures on the very cheap.

This aqua~ribbed bowl with green banding is my very favorite find for $4.00; a large vintage print of "The Hunt" in faded aqua's/tans~~$10.00 (I want to maybe paint the frame); sweet tall wooden pedestal for $5.00~~

A vintage metal tray depicting apples for $1.00;  the brown sewing basket $2.00~~I'm thinking some burlap and paint on this little project~~all the mentioned items came from Catholic Charity.

My favorite junking stop Thursday~~our local habitat resale~~found the "orange plaid" footstool and white metal table~~each $1.00!

Could not have past up these little treasures: each 25 cents~~big wooden knobs and two lovely old door plates complete with rust!  They will come in handy for projects too. 
 I left something at the resale shop that I could kick myself for not buying~~$5.00 metal table with a wooden top~~so industrial and paint~worthy~~when the store opens tomorrow I'm hoping it's still there. 

  It will make a great side table for resale at my booth~~I'll picture tomorrow if I'm lucky enough to still get it.

I'm sending my lovely junk over to these parties:


  1. Hi, these are all nice find and I'm sure your repurposing some of the pieces will fetch some nice items from them.
    I have to tell you though...I love, love the apple tray! If you were close by...I'd haggle with you for sure! LOL. Great blog! Hugs!

  2. I agree the apple tray is the winner! But all the other stuff sure comes in second...good buys..good selection...

  3. Oh, nice finds. Can't wait to see what you'll do with some of them. Love that pedestal the best. Susan
