Would you believe it’s almost July and I haven’t been to one single yard sale yet this year? I really haven’t even passed by very many. I think it’s just been too hot for people to sit outside and deal with it all.
I’ve been sticking with indoor shopping at thrift stores and malls, not to mention the things that just land in my lap. Free finds from friends and family—my favorite!
Check out my most recent finds:
My nephew brought me this nice headboard and footboard. The rails were all messed up so he got rid of them. They never quite let the mattress lay right.
The pretty details will really show up with some paint and distressing, don’t you think?
These are the top parts of the posts. This bed is a really heavy four poster bed! I can barely drag the headboard by myself. If I use it for a bench, it will be a monster to move. Thoughts?
I picked up this brass planter for jamie, and some enamel lids for myself after telling Homeroad that I never see any. She’s inspired me to make a bird feeder with a spindle or a teacup feeder . The clamp was a bargain for $3, a great find at Joey’s booth. Yep, I found Joey again, and I love digging through his stuff—always great deals!
My favorite Thrift Store (American Council of the Blind) is going out of business. I’ve been in several times and found new things. I got the enamel ware here and the brass planter, all at 50% off.
On my last visit, I found this perfectly chipping vintage wooden ladder!
Although it was marked $5, I got it for 50% off—woohoo! What would YOU do with it?
I got this free lamp from a friend.
Now for a little fun. Out of these next 3 items at the local Vendor’s Village, I got one. Which do you think is waiting for a little makeover?
A singer treadle sewing machine?
or this off brand treadle sewing machine?
or this vintage side table?
