Free Finds and Thrift store deals under FIVE dollars. Yep, you may remember my limit use to be $5, and it turns out that I can still get great deals at Vendors’ Village for five bucks! Let’s see the goodies I gathered in July.
While helping a friend move, I scored this free computer desk.
This petite vintage rocking chair came with the computer desk, also FREE!
I thought long and hard about this damaged pedestal for a small table. At first I thought I could repair/disguise the broken foot, but I figured for two dollars, I could definitely make something out of the spindle.
I didn’t need this metal pedestal stand, but for two dollars, I felt I should bring it home.
This old coffee table is heavy, and it wasn’t until after I paid for it that I noticed the damage. oops! This one was over the five dollar limit, costing $7.
In John’s booth at the back of the store, I found these two bundles of picture frame molding for less than $5 each.
I have NO idea why I picked up these wooden drapery rings in a jar. I thought maybe I could make a ring toss game. I even found these bottles, but they wanted $1 each for them. I didn’t buy the bottles.
Here’s my haul. John talked me into buying this lamp. He had just brought in a new haul, and was also trying to get me to buy more picture frame molding by the piece. I told him I’d take these two bundles home and see if I wanted to get some of the longer single pieces.
Here’s a better picture of the lamp. It was definitely worth the $1.99 price tag. Of course it has landed in the lamp department until I figure out what to do with it.
This $5 wooden ladder was in John’s booth. I do NOT need another ladder, but it was in really good shape. (don’t call Hoarder’s on me, ok?)
I went dumpster diving across the street to get these two kitchen drawers.
More drawers from the same dumpster haul. Aren’t the fronts awesome? I got three of them, all different sizes. BONUS! The drawers are solid wood, so I’ll part the sides and bottoms for a future project.
I’ve already used some of the picture frame molding on a table project so when I went to Vendors’ Village to drop off the old Oak Table and Chairs, I picked up more picture frame molding. They are 7 feet long and were $1.69 each.
