I’m doing what I can to get ready for my craft show in less than 2 weeks. My plan was to build a couple of benches, but instead I’m working on a bunch of “smalls” to take instead.
But a girl can dream of bigger projects, right? I got a great deal on this headboard, right at my $5 limit!
I’m a sucker for a topless table. $3.99
Check out the FREE picture frames I scored from a fellow vendor at Unique Creations.
One more really large one.
Free cork board.
I picked these up at a recent yard sale.
If you’re a long time reader, you may remember Joey…my favorite vendor at my favorite thrift store. That store closed, and I heard Joey moved to Florida. He’s BACK! Check out the great deal on these plates, and that wonderful booth #396! I’ll be a regular visitor to Joey’s booth from now on.
I couldn’t pass up this cute little jar, check out the price!
Here’s where today’s title comes in. I’ve made a bunch of those beverage tags from shutter slats. To help display/sell them at Glendale, I wanted a pitcher on which to hang them. I do not own a pitcher. I went to a couple of different thrift stores in search of a pitcher. I found a lot of pitchers, most of them were either REALLY ugly or very expensive. This green one was doable, and only a couple of bucks. Sort of reminds me of the old Kool-aid pitchers. I found it at the first store.
This one was more expensive, and still plastic, but at least it’s a little prettier. I think plastic isn’t so bad, because after all, the show is outdoors. There on the bottom right are a couple of notepads. It seems that I’m always needing to make a list of something these days.
This last find is a pretty good one. $2.25 It’s in the foreground. (that’s a red chalkboard frame in the background) This is a piece of Purebond wood. We learned about it at Haven2012. It’s really nice wood, sort of like plywood. It’s kind of laminate on one side and raw on the other side. Apparently someone works somewhere where they have this. I have been unable to find it locally. I’m thinking it will be a top to another topless table I have. I believe I’ll be going back to get a few more pieces.
Have you found any good bargains lately?
