It’s cold, too cold to finish the work on the fence. There are no real updates at this time. We recently worked on the caps for the 4x4 posts, and the frames of the gates.
So, today I’ll be sharing a few of my recent finds. I love to go junk shopping when it’s too cold to work.
I picked up these two framed canvases and a vintage lamp at the White Elephant near my home. The Frames were less than $5, and the lamp was on sale for around $5. It’s nice when I can still find stuff that falls under my five dollar limit.
The canvas in the front is in great shape, the one in the back has a big dent in it. Both frames are in great shape.
I really like this one, do you think it’s a keeper? Or should it become a chalkboard instead? If you think it’s worth keeping, should I paint the frame, or leave it as is?
This booth must be closing because all the items were 50% off. This chair was regular $8, so I got it for $4. Was it too much to wish it had a mate?
Check out the sign—I think I should go back today and pick up a few more items . . .
. . . like this $25 sewing cabinet that Cousin Terry thought I should pick up for $12.50. I also think that little stool is cute—I didn’t even see it while I was shopping.
I’ve been on the lookout for a vintage glass pitcher. I found the one on the right for $5.00. Then when I saw the ½ price booth I saw the cute one on the left. It was marked $8, but I got it for a mere four bucks!
I got a good deal on this vintage washboard. I saw many of them during this one shopping trip, but this is the one that found a new home.
This is a plastic frame, but I really liked the shape. It’s been at the Vendor’s Village for a couple of months. When I passed by it over the weekend, I just couldn’t resist. I can’t remember the price, I think it was a little over my $5 limit.
There was a booth that was 75%off. Each of these books was marked $1.00, so I got them for a quarter. The one on the right “A Tour of the Whitehouse with Mrs. John F Kennedy was 75% off of .50 cents. If my math is right, I think that made it less than 13 cents.
What do you think? Did I get some good deals? Is there anything in particular you loved? Something you would have totally passed on? Remember, I’d love to hear your thoughts in a comment below about that canvas framed artwork.
What good deals have you found lately?
