Oh my! It’s been so hot here, and it looks like there’s no end in sight. I haven’t been to a single yard sale this year. But, we have so many of those “junk” malls that it’s a good way to kill some time and keep cool. I went to the White Elephant over the weekend looking for my next great project. I didn’t find any furniture pieces, but I did find some things that I thought I might be useful for staging my projects.
I got some really good deals on these glass items. The tall green vase was only .25 cents. The shorter green bowl was 1.95, and the white (milk glass?) vase was $1.50.
This wooden pedestal plate was 2.00
I’m not sure if I’ll leave it alone, or paint it. What would you do?
My neighbors dropped off this Singer treadle machine. It’s in pretty rough shape.
Even the machine seems to have been stripped of everything for some reason.
The front is a little different than anything I’ve seen. It’s actually a small pull out drawer, instead of one of those flip down fronts. It’s also more ornate than the last sewing machine I repurposed into a vanity.
These little tables showed up on my patio one day. I think they are screaming for some new paint—I can do that in the basement shop.
Have you been to any yard sales lately? Found any good stuff? Do Tell!
