After my last trip to Elizabethtown with Cathy, I was anxious to go back again. Two weeks later, I borrowed a truck and off we went.
I hit the console t.v. jackpot!
I like to use bungees to make sure everything stays in place during the trip.
This t.v. cabinet has some deep scratches in the top.
This one is all plastic on the front.
This t.v. is actually all wood.
I have no idea what will become of these, but at least they aren’t in the garbage.
I love these mirrors….seems that none of them are ever the same.
All of the above came from the ReStore for a grand total of $5.00. They were going to throw the t.v.’s in the garbage. Instead of taking them for free, I made a donation in addition to the $5.
Not shown, I bought some handles that I think will be great for my faux barn door mantel décor. I got 10 for .25 each.
After we went to the ReStore, we hit some of the places that we didn’t get to go to last time. It’s all a blur to me. I have no idea where I got anything!
This is a pretty good sized frame. I love painting these plastic frames—they make great chalkboards.
This lamp said “for parts”… cha-ching!
This little guy was at St. Vincent DePaul thrift store. He smiled at me and won me over. He had been there since last December! I couldn’t help but bring him home. I think he will be perfect to help me greet my guests at Glendale!
EDITED to ADD: Julie suggested he hold a sign—thanks Julie!
I made a lamp out of an old coffee pot… and I’ve been wanting to do another for awhile. The price on this little gas was just right! $4.50
That was all on Friday…then early Saturday morning, I went to get some breakfast and saw a sign for an estate sale just a block from me. I passed by, but then ended up stopping on the way home. They didn’t open till 9 am, and it was only 8….but as I was going slowly by the house… they saw me, and waved me in.
I got this vintage ironing board… that I do NOT need, but it was on $3.00.
More frames! The small ones are metal and the large ones are plastic.
I spotted this great Costco step stool at the estate sale, and I knew Jamie would want it.
The seat lifts up to reveal the step stool. Do they still make stuff like this? If not, they should!
ohhh, I almost forgot!
I put an ad on Craig’s list looking for privacy fence. These folks live on a corner, so I parked on the side street and Marty took down part of his fence and crawled through—he then proceeded to hand me the boards and I loaded them in the truck (lower right). On the left is after I had taken all the nails out and washed them. I leaned them up against my fence to dry.
So there you have it! My newest finds. What have YOU found lately?
